My nexus4 2G RAM and 16G ROM, android 4.2.2. Got the root privileges afte bought it last year.

The situation puzzled me these days. Each time I tried to install app from google play or somewhere esle. Out of space error came out and suggested me Free up some sapce and try again, Cancel or Manage apps.

In fact 8.9Gb is available, Apps(app data & media content) occupies 733m. And this Out of space error doesn't come out when I updating apps.

I did some seach, uninstalled some apps, cleared app cache(one by one), even entered recovery mode and cleared dalvik cache, but it doesn't work.

Any help is greatly appreciated. thanks!

(from an Android 4.4.4 user)

I began to have this problem after installing the Xposed module "XInstaller". I uninstalled that module and everything went back to normal.

Important: It can get easy to confuse all of these X words. It wasn't "Xposed Installer" that was the issue. The issue was the module for Xposed called "XInstaller". This module lets you change some of Android's default app installation/uninstallation behaviors. For now, I'm leaving that module alone.


The only answer is a factory reset and even that doesn't work as it is supposed to. Shows formatting but nothing is removed when you boot up again.

I imagine the problem comes from Google servers restoring everything. I don't know how to get around that.
