In cm roms, dalvik cache of system apps are generated in /cache but those data/apps are generated in /data. Is there any way to disable this behaviour? Cache partition in our phones is too small. In AOSP and AOKP and stock roms, dalvik cache is always generated in /data no matter whether its a system app. any way to achieve this in cm roms?
I was flashing CM9 from CM7 on my Motorola Defy, botched it up intially due to a slip of my finger which led to me to Clear the cache first. But then I restarted the entire process by Clearing Data -> Installing -> Flashing Kernel and so on...
But when I tried to clear the Dalvik Cache, the phone didn't delete it. It didn't give me a message that it wiped the cache, but it didn't say otherwise either. This led me to believe that the cache just didn't exist anymore.
As a result, I'm unable to install apps - Says there is no memory and I need to make more. Also, everytime the phone comes on is treated as the first time. It takes me through the whole process of Setting up an account and everything. This has rendered my phone obsolete.
I was just flashing a new ROM for my gio, and made sure that i did a factory reset, wiped cache partition and wipe dalvik cache. but when i went to wipe the dalvik, CWM froze for a bit, then showed the yes/no part for like half a second, then kicked me back to the main menu. It does this every time. What to do? or should i just reflash it?
I am wondering if it is possible to limit the size of the dalvik-cache. I am looking for an alternative to putting it on the sdcard. Maybe I could create a partition on the internal storage for the cache?
It looks like ics automatically runs the "Android is Upgrading" thing whenever it senses some "change" in boot.img? It happens everytime i flash a kernel, without wiping dalvik cache. It will continue to run regardless of whether the dalvik cache files are present or not. This is actually a good feature.
But i noticed that if i simply do a nandroid backup of /boot, and restore it without doing anything else, or flash the same kernel again, it will boot up with the "Android is Upgrading" thing again from the start.
is there a way to disable this, or at least prevent dalvik cache generation if they are already present? im using amon Ra recovery
What exactly is the Dalvik Cache and when do I need to clear it? Is it something that should be done when you replace one rom with another or is a data wipe all you need to do? Any clarity on what a Dalvik cache is would be greatly appreciated. I just want to know the basics of what it is and when I do or do not need to use it.
If I insert an external sd card formatted in ext2 or ext3, will it be treated as a normal sd card (FAT32)? The device is Samsung Galaxy S (Korean) running Android 2.1 I need the answer before I get the device tomorrow, because by the time I get the device, I will not have any option to change anything in the card.
My wife has a completely stock 1.5 Eris. She's getting a low storage notification. I looked at the system setting and her internal storage is completely maxed out, but the SD card is 90% available. I've mounted her phone to my laptop and tried moving files around, but nothing is moving. She only has pictures on her phone, not a single song, movie, video, etc. How do I get the data moved to the SD card?
My mom has an Asus TF300T running JB 4.2.1. She tried to root and flash OmniROM by herself and borked it somehow. Unfortunately, she didn't do any backup...
She entered the fastboot screen and there she selected wipe. Then she flashed openrecovery-twrp-220.127.116.11-tf300tg-JB.blob using fastboot.
It's operational, the OS loads up fine and she can use it, install apps etc.
I can get to the fastboot screen and from there to the TWRP no problem, but TWRP can't mount anything besides system. No dalvik partition, no data partition, not even the SD or external SD.Naturally, I can't flash another rom...
Tried executing "fix permissions" from the TWRP menu, it didn't work.
Downloaded the latest official Asus blob file TF300T-US_epad-10_6_1_27_5-UpdateLauncher.zip and flashed it using fastboot, hoping it will restore the missing partitions but it didn't make any difference.
I've seen some apps like dolphin browser (not the HD version, the normal one) utilizing a cache-to-sd for webview but i can't seem to figure out how to do this, does anyone know how to do this or point me in the right direction?
I'm getting the following error message "Unfortunately Gallery has stopped". In the Apps manager for Gallery, I have already cleared the cache and cleared the data, and also pressed "force stop". I've also restarted the phone. However it's still not working.
OK, before I start, it's about an LT15i. I don't know what's happening, but at some .FTFs Flashtool does not show the file list (middle column) and neither "wipe cache" or data and one FTF has the "wipe cache" option only. This is really annoying. Tutorials specify a download link for a specific FTF and after starting Flashtool and selecting the flash option, that FTF is not showing up properly. Should I download an earlier version of the program?
I am running a cm10 based Rom on my note 2 and as such can't move apps to the sd card through the usual channels. I was able to get my play music cached songs to store on the external sd and any way to do the same for Google Play magazines as they take up more room.
Since owning this Razr Maxx HD on Verizon I periodically get notifications about .'Move [AppName] to SD Card.' This notification appeared before I had my external 64GB SD card. It was my impression aOS would not allow movement of apps from where originally installed. And to where one place on the internal card to another?
I need to get the progress of a couple of games and a few other apps to my new phone. I am not rooted, and I am not necessarily interested in doing that either. Is there a way to do it without being rooted?
I have taken over a Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360 from a friend and the on board Ram is insufficient. I have searched and see that it is possible to increase the Ram by using part of the SD card. Apparently, the phone needs to be rooted first.
So I downloaded this universal root piece of software, but it sits in the download folder on the SD card....sd/download...
how do I move the it so that it sits directly on the sd/ rather than on the sd/download folder.
I have a rooted HTC Desire HD with a custom ROM (Android RevolutionHD).
I have heard a lot of about moving the apps to the SD card to save space in the memory's phone, but does it really usefull apart of "saving memory"? or it can make slower the phone's boot because loading apps from the sd?
Need to know more about advantages and disadvantages of moving apps to the SD.
My priority is a faster / smoother phone UI and boot, being the memory space not so important.
I got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" and I'm trying to move my apps to SD card as my internal memory is almost full. I've tried some apps from Google play but none of them work with me. In settings/application manager there's isn't the option to move the app to external storage.
