I made the mistake of buying a cheap Chinese phone on Ebay to use on Three or Orange in the UK, a 4" Malata I60 Android 4.1 Dual Core MT6577 1GHz. It's okay for what little I need, except the internal storage shows as a total of 179MB.

I've moved whatever apps I can to my 30GB SD card and using App Cache Cleaner, but I am still only left with 36.8MB of free space.

This is causing warnings whenever updates are found and even causing updates to fail for lack of space if I am actively using the phone.

Does anyone know where I could find reliable step-by-step guides to rooting Android 4.1 and using the SD card for internal storage?

Thanks for the info, will check it out.

Meanwhile I've managed to root it and move most of the apps to the SD card giving me a little more space even though Link2SD doesn't recognize the 2GB partition no matter what format it's in.

The phone is at least usable now :)
