Why? Isn't down to the applications you have and where they choose to store stuff?

Say you downloaded a mapping application that allowed you to download/cache maps from online, would that go into this data directory (I'm not sure on the APIs or any sandboxes that are available to devs when producing an android app)

Only if it was brainless... it would ideally store to the sdcard.

Just did this on my SGS, with a /data/data of not quite 50MB.
And... MAN, THAT'S FAST! E.g. loading the monitoring history of SystemPanel App doesn't take a second, before it took 10s+...
Any side-effects to be afraid of?

Side-effects ONLY if you hit the capacity limit. I'm working on that tho obviously.

hi paul,

maybe the idea is to identify the core processes, and create a symbolic link to the nand storage?

They've kinda done that already, if you have a look around dbdata. There's other partitions that seem to be unmounted, gonna look into what they are for...

once you are in the shell (i.e. after adb shell)
type busybox before the command e.g. busybox cp ...

Shall we try ? Mines got some Serious issues. All data / most apps gone / com.android.phone FC ......

The price we have to pay for dancing with the devil ;-)

EDIT : My phone seems to have booted up in safe mode. I didn't even know it has a safe mode !!! Lol.
EDIT 2 : Everything is FC. Unable to adb to phone or go to settings or anything.

Time to wipe. I'm a casualty. This is what it feels like. Strange. I've never been a casualty before.

EDIT 3 : Got adb access !!! . Now if someone could assist in the reversal commands. Theres a point or two I don't get. Thanks.

EDIT 4 : Sorry if this is getting boring. Lost root access through adb for some reason. Permission denied
