I have an off-brand rooted tablet built on MT8389 with 8GB internal memory. The problem is that manufacturer partitioned this in some weird way making
/data folder mounted to a partition that is only 1GB large. Basically I have approximately 4GB of free space mounted as
/storage/sdcard0 but it sits unused while all installed apps occupy
/data making the device close to useless as only core apps after updates eats over 60% of available space.
After all Android is just another Linux flavour, so I would expect I could run console and do this:
/datato the partition that was mounted as
- Mount that 1GB partition as
Is it possible? How to do it "safely"?
Note that I don't want to change partition sizes - I only want to swap mount points or create symlink to make
/data point to a larger partition. In theory this should be pretty straightforward ;)
