Hi Ive got a skate and am having issues with memory IE not being able to install any other apps

Im running CFX2 on an original (factory set) memory partition.

ive got 162MB of internal storage and of that 99.5mb used for apps and 28.75mb available, but everytime i try do dload a new app i get a message saying i dont have enough memory left to install it.


when i look at the manage apps bit of the app drawer it says internal storage is 133mb of which there is 29mb free?

can anyone help or direct me to a tpt that would suit my OS?

MM

Android often says you don't have any space left, even if you appear to have 20-30MB free. It's been this way for as long as I can remember,

I'd recommend just installing simple2ext or Link2SD, along with a 512MB or 1GB ext3 partition on your SD card. You'll never run out of space again.

You can also use link2sd to clear all applications caches with just one click. This frees a significant amount of memory.

It's a separate partition you make on your SD card for an app like Link2SD to move your apps to. Here's how you make one:

1. Back up everything on your SD card
2. Reboot to recovery
3. Advanced > Partition SD card
4. Select how big you want your ext partition to be.
5. Move your backed up files back to your SD card.

That's it. Then you can just install Link2SD or whatever and let it set everything up for you.

Morning. Clearing cache also helps with the insuficient storage issue with play store and cfx2 . :)

Open Link2SD and make it automatically link (not move) apps to ext. Also link as many existing apps as possible to ext.
