Hi guys,

Because I have reached "Database storage is low" on day 2 of having my phone, I think I should try restore my partitions as they were, but dont know if that is possible.

I'd like to backup the whole system and apps and settings etc to an image file in the way I was able to with HTC Hero. With that I could create an image of all the stuff on my phone and could restore my phone.

Any ideas there?

Did you do this

adb shell

su

cp -rp /data/data /dbdata

mv /data/data /data/data.bak

ln -s /dbdata/data /data/data

reboot

if yes redo it again, I also face database storage low after syn contacts with Facebook, but after I re mount the database again problem solve.

Hi mate, thanks for the response...

I did try

adb shell

su

cp -rp /dbdata/data /data/data.tmp

rm -r /data/data

mv /data/data.tmp /data/data

reboot

which did not do the trick, but I will try yours, a little different...

I did find that Paul's fix did help make things a bit smoother scrolling from screen to screen.

pity our phone just isnt as smooth as an old iphone.

as it's a little different??

you should understand what this does.

lucasjohny copies his data directory to /dbdata and then links back to it

what you did was the opposite. you copied stuff from your /dbdata to /data and linked it back.

hello kanzir

but no matter which I try, I still cannot install Asphalt 5

"Out of space. Asphalt 5 could not be viewed. Free up some space on your phone and try again".

I have 1.6+ GB on phone mem, 5gb on internal mass and 13gb on external memory... so how/why do I have a space shortage?

thanks,

Mark.

hm. do a "df" on a root shell (termina, adb shell, etc.) and post the result, please

Hi Kanzlr,

I tried typing df and then df -h and neither came up with anything...

Your help is much appreciated, tx

Mark.

To solve the problem after cannot install Asphalt and/or low memory of dbdata:

1. Reverse back "lag fix" by

adb shell

su

rm /data/data

mv /data/data.bak /data/data

rm -r /dbdata/data

reboot

2. Install all Samsung Apps including Asphalt

3. Apply "lag fix" by

adb shell

su

cp -rp /data/data /dbdata

mv /data/data /data/data.bak

ln -s /dbdata/data /data/data

reboot

Hi Khunjj, thanks for the response...

I did the first part of your script (reverse back lag fix) and still could not install Asphalt.

I wonder what is going on??

Thanks again,

Mark

I'll tell you. You probably screwed up the names of the directories while not knowing what you were doing. Now the directories are a mess and you still have no clue what you're doing. Learn what these commands do and you can fix your issue easily. Since we have no idea how things are laid out on your phone now it's really hard to help help you out.
