I've faced with insufficient storage problem on my HTC One X (rooted, stock ROM 4.2.2, CWM recovery). I've solve this problem before on a Samsung device by dialing *#9900# then press Delete dumpstate/logcat. However, I try that with HTC and it doesn't work. Anyone know how can I delete logcat or other method to fix this problem?

Updated : FYI, I have plenty of storage in phone storage as well as in SDcard. I also try installing other app which seems to installed without problem. The app I'm having problem is Gallery Vault. Earlier, the app is installed and I uninstall it. Now I'm trying to reinstall it and I get insufficient storage error.



Clearing logcat can't make any difference to your storage problem. The logcat output is stored in a ring buffer, so it has a fixed size, and the ring buffer only exists on RAM: it isn't written to the storage at all.

See the frequent questions under the tag for what to do when your phone storage is getting full.

    I'm no Android guru, bur clearing the logcat/dumpstat on a Samsung Galaxy S2 solved exactly the same problem: apps could not be installed due to "no space" errors (even if gigabytes were free). After clearing it via the *#9900# menu, the problems were gone (also more than a gigabyte of storage was freed up). PS: Is there a general "How to clear logcat/dumpstate?" question? Hopefully with an answer? Apr 25 '15 at 23:31

I try deleting all file associate with the app (apk, settings, etc) I can now install the app. Seems like residue files are the culprit.
