You should be able to boot the phone into the bootloader and then using adb you can start recovering data to your phone

The given answer is correct, I just want to clarify: By pressing Clear data on any app, you're clearing application's data, stored in /data/data/[package.name]. It doesn't contain any images of yours, nor you can access it unless you root your device. Cache also belongs to data, and it's inside /data/data/[package.name]/cache. Your images, on the other ...

I experienced the same thing on my Samsung Galaxy S3 mini. I just used Rescan SD/Rescan (used them both because I wasn't sure where my music was SD card/Internal SD) After that - it just worked and my Samsung stock music player worked!!

It depends on how you use your phone, but under normal circumstances (no task killer apps, small to medium sized memory consumer, etc.) category 1 apps are typically held in RAM. So I guess reading from SD card you will only notice when the app is started for the first time. But beware, that SD cards can outperform internal memory performance: General ...

You will not lose any of your photos, if CLEAR DATA operation is performed, it is completely safe to do so. This just means that your preferences have been reset and the cache has been cleared.1 Cache is generated only for providing fast access to gallery files. When you restart your gallery after this operation, it'll take some time to load and it will ...

Try clearing the cache regularly under Settings>Storage to get some space

To answer all of that, one needs to know all (or at least most) of the devices available. So all I can give is an "educated guess". Permissions should not be altered by symlinks. And yes, what's there varies across devices, Android versions and even ROMs used. Find the "real one" using df or mount at the command prompt (either via a terminal app, or using ...

I think the application has installed the font to the /system partition, so wipe the /cache and /data partition won't help. You can re-flash the phone to the factory image, it will also format the entire /system partition.

I solved this problem the best way was to do the following: Root the phone (do it t your own risk!!!! - I sure did and works fine). Install any memory management application (RAM Management app - refer XDA forum). 3.It will ask you to allocate some of your internal memory as SWAP space. When done you will have the SWAP act as a backup RAM in case the ...

Yes, the most likely cause here is that you removed the SD card and the app was installed there. Some apps can install themselves, or a portion of themselves, to the SD card even if it is external storage. When an application is removed incorrectly, such as removing an SD card that the application is installed on, what you are experiencing is a typical ...

Android versions less than 6.0 don't natively support using an external sdcard to 'extend' the internal SD card, therefore, only data can be moved to the SD card if it has been allowed by the apk author. To move this data to the SD card, you can go to Settings > Apps and select the app which you want to move to the SD card and press 'Move to SD' If the ...

Devices have different partitions for different purposes. Data storage is bigger because you will need to store your pictures etc. BUT the partition that your device uses for apps is always limited. You might want to move some apps to sd if you are able to. For example here is the partition table to a Samsung Galaxy S5: aboot -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p6 ...

You haven't really asked a question but seems like you want a way to free up space on your phone. If you have lots of photos: I would download Google Photos. It can backup all of your photos on your device as long as you select the folders which you have folders in so you can go ahead and delete them off of your device. A benefit of this solution is you ...

I found a way to release the memory: Connect you phone to a PC. Open the memory with the File Explorer. Either "Card" or "Phone" Open the file LOST.Dir Erase the files in that folder. This seems to be the recycle bin for Android. Best!

Try moving your apps off tablet drive and put them on the internal sd card. Go to settings-Apps. Slide the screen to "on sd card" (upper right of screen). Check box the apps to move. Then go back to "downloaded" screen. Click each app and clear data, clear cache. That freed up 100mb on mine. Good luck

Format your microSD Card as internal storage (there is an option in the menu) before using it as Internal Storage. If that doesn't work, try rebooting the phone.

Okay, this is related to App Install Location and behavior in question controlled by application manifest, specifically, by android:installLocation attribute (NB: by default system assumes internalOnly).

You can use Kingroot. License is Chinese, but when you accept it, app changes to English. And you don't need a computer. Then install ZArchiver. It can get to the system folders, if the device is rooted.
