I'm running out of free space! Why the hell they split into two partitions the internal memory? There is no need for sdcard0!! Somebody please come up with a solution!

You can root the phone using kingo Android root utility. Then use LinkedIn to move apps to a hidden partition on your external SD card. That's how I do it.
Alternatively you can swap the internal and external SD cards but that doesn't help with the internal memory.

Sorry that is Link2SD not LinkedIn - typing on my Video and predictive text took over.

I find Linked2SD less effective than the built in moving.

 

The problem with the built in method is you cannot move the data or dalvik cache.

The problem with Link2SD is you cannot move the data or libs*.

For my apps the libs are bigger than the dalvik cache - though this is after moving the system dalvik to the system partition using titanium.

 

 

 

*you can move the libs but your phone spends flipping ages moving them back again whenever you reboot.

I'm rooted and i have a 16GB sdcard. If only i could create at least 1 GB data partition on my sdcard then everything would be fine...

Have you moved the applications that you can to the internal SD card? Did you know that you can remove some pre-installed apps using special root-level system app removal programs and then reinstall those apps from the Google Play store and transfer them to the internal SD card. For example: Chrome is preinstalled as a "system app" and therefore cannot be moved to the internal SD card. If you use an app to remove it you can then reinstall it as a "user app" which can be moved to the internal SD card. There are a few apps that are similar to Chrome (Google Search is another good one) in this regard and there are a few apps which you might want to do away with altogether such as Facebook. You might have to try more than one app removal program. I use

 

https://play.google....nager.systemapp

and

https://play.google....nstall&hl=en_GB

 

but I can't recall whether they both work as well as each other or one is better than the other.

 

I agree with you that the splitting of internal memory into internal storage and internal SD card is stupid but apparently there's a flaw in Android that necessitates it; I've never found a satisfactory answer.

Have you run out of apps you can move or have you run out of internal sd card space?

I ask because I've moved over 4GB of apps to sd card and obviously the internal space is only 1.5GB.  So if you simply ran out of internal space then check this out: http://www.modaco.co...ernal-sd-cards/

 

If you have already moved all your apps, uninstalled unwanted system apps, integrated your system dalvik then you;re out of luck until someone releases a custom kernel with init.d support.  And as there's no development happening on this phone that's unlikely.

 

Have less apps is pretty much the solution.

I have enough free space on internal sd card that is why i'm pissed at Google or ZTE. If there is no internal sdcard then i would have more then enough free space. Are there other newer android phones that don't have this flaw with sd cards?

This is a budget phone.  I'm sure expensive phones have tons of room. :)

If you haven't caused you're .android_secure folder to even fill your internal sd card, are you sure you've moved all you can?  Like I say, I've moved 3 times as much as the internal card could even take.  How many user apps do you have?  I've fitted 196 onto mine so far.

 

When time allows, I intend to play with setting up an Int2Ext script to allowed an ext partition on an external SD card to be used in place of the data partition.  Following a brief chat in posts 3,4 and 5 here: http://www.modaco.co...for-gpu-or-cpu/

Yeah if i would know then i buy the Moto G wich is a very good hardware for the price but i only wanted a cheap phone because i use my tablet if i can. This phone with some games is good if im waiting for the bus or something. I don't know how many apps i will check it.

Is the Dalvik cache one large entity for the OS or a small entity which exists for each program?
