The size will go down, but not by much, I've got 28 apps installed and mine is sitting at 112meg, it was 126meg to start with, so it must be the app cache, that does that.

Your information is held in data/app (using root explorer)

Yes !

You are right !

Thanks.

Thanks..

Your Root/Unroot works great, so Thanks.. :lol:

Unfortunately, I could not get this way of installing app2sd to work, but the other method did work on a friends(windows 7), so i had to use that way(in the other thread), but works fine now..

UPDATE: My app count has increased, but it has stayed at 112meg, so maybe it's some sort of cache/log file for the initial space change.

I forget to wrote that the app2sd made by polish guys and posted by me works after the phone is restarted and gives the stderr error and the 2 folders from the zip should be in the root of the sdcard.After the stderr it says something in polish " restartow "or something like that (Sorry it is the original version and I am not speaking polish) .Even the stderr error it finish the process succesfully .If it fails you will see B). There is also a check script to check it after restart .

I have followed joestones guide on how to install app2sd.

However I keep getting the error:

stderr: mkdir failed for /system/sdcard,

File exists

What am I doing wrong?

How did you get it to be 126meg to start with?

Even with a fresh install of the Baltic 2.1 my free internal space wasonly 122meg, and that was without any apps installed.

I honestly don't know..its just what i got, the guy on page 1, he got 109meg.

It was 126meg, it went down to 112 with around 28 apps installed..i uninstalled them all bar Astro, and it went back up again, but installing them all it got to 115, and when i installed titanium backup, it installed busybox, which took it to 112meg, where its at now.

Does it write at the end something like that "gotowe , mozna zrestartowac" ?

If yes restart the phone . After restart your apps on the sdcard.

You can always use the other way in this thread.

I had to do it that way, and it works.

Try to run this adb shell chmod 4777 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage vs. adb shell chmod 4755 /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage

That will make the file writable by anyone versus the owning user only. Will it affect the 'execute' permission?

Normally not you are right , it has execute to all permission and rw permission to owner , but normally the original version should work. Maybe try a factory reset and try then the root process again of course backup your phone before factory reset .

The command adb devices can show you if your phone can be seen by the pc, running from adb shell, before you start trying to do other things...to check, for example that the phone can actually be seen.

I found connecting the phone via usb, then selecting usb debugging picked it up first time, then comman adb shell, then adb devices shows the phone as the only active device.

There was no need, it eventually picked it up once it had installed the drivers. when i connected the usb i checked which drivers my comp picked up and it said about 6 different related drivers for the phone and one unknown driver so i waited for that one to register and it turned out to be the adb driver and once that had instaled it worked as it should and rooted perfectly.

Thanks for the advice though
