thanks for upvoting this question but I'm afraid I still have no answer until this day either majority people. But let me share my latest research about this case which actually would be lame because I post this question pretty much long time ago. So, here it is. When I do my research about it on the device, I try to root it, try to swapping the the storage ...

"find" is a command line application which might be normally installed as: 1. a binary executable (most desktop machines) or 2. something small doing many things where one of them is "find" or 3. might be not available as phone manufacturers don't like users to have too much control over their phones Most likely you have one branded (ex. samsung) ICS device ...

Try applying the SD fix manually, the details are over at XDA. The steps are: Remount the system partition as read+write (use an app such as ES File Explorer, or enter mount -o remount,rw /system after becoming root in a terminal). Make a backup of the /system/etc/permissions/platform.xml file, just to be sure. Look for the XML element ...

Nope. Deleting things in the system partition has no effect on the amount of usable internal storage - the system partition is reserved for the ROM and mounted read only by default. Only deleting things in /data and /sdcard will affect the amount of space available to you.

Eventually I solved it by connecting the device to my pc, running adb shell and then running su in order to grant root privileges. After that, to list all the partitions, I used the df command - and in each partition I generated a file big enough to fill all of the free space with random data (generated using the command dd if=/dev/urandom of=junkfile.txt ...

If you go to Camera > Settings > Settings you should see save to device or save to internal card I have these options on my Samsung Galaxy Note III

Adding an SD card doesn't add space to your phone, it provides an additional path for storage. Your phone has limited internal memory that can't be increased. After adding the SD card, it should mount on its own. After that, you should try moving some media or apps to the SD card to clear enough room on your phone to install your update.

App developers decide what information to be kept in "data" and what to be kept in "cache". Usually, "data" is used for account info, settings, saved activity data, game scores, and whatever is need to be kept permanently. Clearing data will make your app "forget" everything like you have reinstalled it. "Cache" holds all information and files that can be ...

Cache are temporary(unnecessary) files.... You must clear them more often otherwise it may affect ur device performance... Where as data are files required by ur application.... It saves users activity and progress

In general: Cache is temporary files. One example might be thumbnails for contacts in a social media app. These can be cleared without any major effect — the app can just download them again when it needs to — and if space is low the Android OS may remove cache files itself. Data is the "important" information. This might include credentials ...

The Google play store, and other app stores, only list the main application (APK) size, not the total app size, which includes the OBB (Opaque Binary Blob) expansion files. OBBs are the extra files that an app downloads to run. There should be no difference in file size before the extra files are downloaded. From the Play Store Developers section: The ...

I'm experiencing this problem too, and my experience revealed that it's only the latest version of the app store causing the problem. So every time I want to install or update apps, I first revert the Play Store to the stock version. I go to the app drawer, long click the Play Store icon and drag it to "App Info" to open its settings (you can reach there ...

On a Galaxy S2 with Cynagoenmode 11 running, I did below steps to free space. This clears all unnecessary logs generated. > adb shell $ cd /data/log $ rm *

Apk and zip files are essentially the same, compressed. Before the system can use the file it needs to decompressed. So the file is one size when downloaded and another size when installed. Also note sometimes when apk's are installed, after being opened some data may need to be downloaded. So file size file will increase again. Differences in size are ...

Because Play Store shows download size, and download file (probably apk) is compressed. When you install app, apk is decompressed and larger.
