In the manage applications area of the settings, select apps that you dont use. Uninstall these apps if possible, if not the following method will greatly reduce their size. Force close, clear cache, clear app data, Uninstall updates, disable. This also prevents them from growing again. Also in android 4.x, the function of apps that write to sd are ...

As for your first question: no, wiping data from the recovery just wipes the content of the partitions, not the partitions themselves. So your device's disk will still be divided into /data, /system, /cache etc., but those partitions will be blank. As for your second question, yes, you will be able to restore the stock firmware, as long as you make a backup ...

You'd need specialist tools to connect directly to the flash memory, I doubt it's practical to do so and you're more than likely to cause some more irreversible damage to your device. See How can I physically remove the internal memory device from my Samsung Galaxy S2? or iFixIt's guide On the other hand, you might have luck trying to power on your device ...

Pretty much any file browser in the play store allows you to move files. Just download one. Find the folder. Long press on it, tell it to move. Then navigate to the folder on the SD card and off you go.

Its basically or more often nand flash memory. And this memory is partitioned into various parts like system storage (/system) and user accessible storage (/data) and possibly (in some cases), /sdcard (note that I'm talking about the emulated legacy SD Card, not your expansion slot) and many more. So its the total memory that comes with the phone on SoC is ...

I understand that read/write speeds are dependent on what the phone is, and what the SD card is, but since both are flash memory, I thought the read/write times would pretty much be around the same. That is a wrong assumption. While they're all flash technology, there's a very wide certain in the speed of the storage. A Class 2 SD Card has a minimum ...

The only way I found for my custom ringtone to work while USB is connected (and to prevent losing my setup if a call or an alarm happens) was a tip from here (vote him up please). Basically (with some extra info): 1) you need a rooted device (for m-mp5303g the only method that worked was by using cydia impactor # drop SuperSU su to /system/xbin/su and do ...

For obb files (for games with folders under /sdcard/Android/obb/, just symlink the obb folder on the external sd card to the internal sd card,and then copy out anything there on internal storage to the symlinked folder on your external SD card. search Google for how to symlink. you need to use either the adb shell or a terminal emulator to do the symlink

Use Link2SD. Create a new partition on your SD card, and format it to ext2/ext3/ext4 filesystem. Take your SD card and mount it in your PC. Repartition your SD card into two partitions, one for normal data storage(rest, fat32) and another for the linked apps (4gb, ext2). You can name the partitions whatsoever you wish. Now insert the SD card in your ...

Root is not needed necessarily, only custom recovery with adb enabled. I'm on my phone now so this will be short. What you need is to dump the partition image to a computer and then run photorec (or other tool) on that image. This can be achieved via adb with root access that can be gained without actually rooting the phone (but you may need to unlock the ...

The only way to recover your photos is that you will need to root your phone. There is really no other way to restore the data you already deleted. First you will need to root your device and then you can recover your files. Rooting your device will void your warranty. Next time before you accidentally delete your photos, use an online backup tool like ...

NO,It will not harm your phone Since, operating speed of SD is less than SDHC.Data transfer will occur at same rate which is supported by your mobile phone. So it will not harm your phone.

This worked for me on my Sony Xperia E3 and my Galaxy Note 10.1: a) settings-apps-all-google play-uninstall updates (you will have to do this everytime you restart) b) If this doesn't work: clear cache - with an app like 1tap cache cleaner or settings-storage-tap cache-clear cache. :)

I know this thread is old but it still shows up on a Google search so I'll put an answer here. Get Automatic File Mover. Set up a filter for .pgn, pick your source (.\Pictures\Screenshots) and set your destination to mySD\Somedirectory and then turn on the service. Now every time you take a screenshot it will be moved off your internal and on to your SD ...

Well this sdcard thingy is kind of tricky for the OPO. For me it seems like the device does not have an sdcard at all(not even an internal). Which would mean that the free space you see is actually an emulated internal sdcard taken from your device flash memory. For emulating an sdcard a FUSE daemon is used where also your /dev/fuse device comes into play. ...

Go to Settings->Apps, select a app and choose "Move to SDCARD", it should move it to Phone capacity, but if that doesn't work, root is the only solution I guess

Answer to your question "More so, how does Recovery even wipes it then?" /data/media is just a link Wiping /data is for if you install a new rom etc and if you would also wipe /data/media, there might be rom install zip-s, so it's either because of link or security

Restart your device, it has helped for me with the same problem!

Sounds like a corrupted file in the operating system. What i would suggest doing is reformatting back to factory settings. on the phone go to Apps > Settings > General Tap Backup & Reset uncheck Back up my Data (if you want a clean slate). Leave it checked if you want to keep your pitures and other documents. Tap on Factory Data Reset after doing ...

It seems your intrnal app partition is full. Check it on setings>storage> under phone storage what left as available on app section. If it is fill (150mb free is not usable) you have 2 options 1. You can swap your external sd. You can read full note here: (NB: it works if you have a MTK device, i don't know what if other devices) ...

I don't want to sound bad or anything but the above linked question still applies.... Really to save space you move things such as photos, videos, music and films to the SD card (This can be done via in app options normally such as within Google play music settings -> manage downloads -> internal / sdcard). However some apps do store data on the SD card. ...
