HTC Incredible :: What "Wipe Cache Partition" Do?Jun 23, 2010
What does the "Wipe Cache Partition" menu option do?
What does the "Wipe Cache Partition" menu option do?
If you went and wiped cache only, not data, and installed a new rom, would all data remain? What exactly is this cache that nandroid wipes?
I'd like to install a rom for a friend but dont want to completley wipe his phone. I just want to install the virtuous rom, which is basically the stock 2.2 update rom and would like to keep all his data on the phone. would just wiping the cache work? I know some people just install without wiping but would wiping cache help?
And I know a wipe is always better, thats what I do on my phone. But its not mine and would like to save his data.

I am trying to install [ROM] Uncommon Sense (v1.0) Release! - xda-developers and it says I need the full wipe!
Does that mean I have to wipe? the cache and data? The two options availabe for wipe in the menu? Also, I place the zip in the root of the memory card, yes?

I'm considering installing a rom and I've heard that doing a data and cache wipe is the proper thing to do to ensure success. What I'm concerned about is how easy it is to restore/re-do all of your settings like ringtones, notification settings, app settings etc. How long does it usually take you to set up your phone again after installing the new rom?View 1 Replies View Related
If you do not root, you could go from 2.0.1 to 2.1 with no wiping of data and cache, it just installs & away you go. Same with 2.1 to 2.2. No wiping of data and cache and all is still there as you left it: apps, settings, preferences, etc. SO, why is it important to do this if you root? What's the difference? And, who said it was important to do? Is there some exact proven logic on why if your rooted you must do this and if not, your somehow fine? That 1 step difference causes a lot of extra work, so I am wondering why this is said to be a must for rooters and non rooters need not do it when they get updates?View 18 Replies View Related

I am confused about the whole wiping the cache and data. I don't know exactly what cache and data are and that's why I'm confused. Do u have to wipe all data and cache before u switch Roms, if not what happens? I am afraid of losing all of my apps and contacts even tho my gmail will restore my contacts how do I know if it has the contacts saved and how would I get my apps back? One more thing, do u have to make more than one backup if u already have one that u r happy with?View 4 Replies View Related
When downloading a custom rom and the dev says wipe data/cache thats when im in recovery right? I see the options but do i do the data first and will it take me out of there and I gotta go back then wipe the cache? or will it just wipe data and then hit the back button and wipe cache and then hit the back button and hit install from sd?View 3 Replies View Related
I have installed UD8 for about a week now. But ever since I have flashed some kernels (slayers 1100lv, chevys 1100 lv, p31200) I have not had the stability nor the quickness that the original 800 stock kernel gave.
I made a nandroid backup b4 flashing those roms..so my question is this: Do i have to wipe cache/data before i flash my nandroid backup? Or can i just flash it w/o doing any extra steps?
Has anybody tried to partition their SD card yet in prep for 2.2/Apps2SD? If so, it's be nice to get a procedure documented here since many of us will have the need for this in the hopefully near future.View 2 Replies View Related
I'm not sure if this needs to be in the Support/TroubleShooting section or in the All Things Root Section. Mods, feel free to move. Anyone know where I can get some detailed instructions for creating a SD Ext 4 partition? Is this something easy to do in Windows? I'm running Ubuntu mainly so if there are ways to do it in there that would be good too.View 2 Replies View Related

I'm not getting the best battery life at the moment, have the Seidio "1750", and have seen conflicting reports on if wiping the battery stats really helps or not. Tried it this morning anyway, figured it couldn't hurt. Charged the phone, gave it a nice bump charge, and then booted into recovery and wiped the stats.View 15 Replies View Related
Does using unrevoked 3.1 to root a DInc wipe the phone? I know that with old root methods on other droids (e.g., Droid Eris), that rooting required installing a custom ROM at the same time.So does unrevoked wipe the phone and install a custom rooted rom? Or if you run revoked 3.1, are you simply left with a rooted phone, that's still running the stock Android Sense 2.1?View 6 Replies View Related
So I did the 2.2 OTA update yesterday and now it has screwed up my phone. My question is, can I wipe my phone and start over? Can I install 2.2 RUU? My phone has all kinds of bugs now, including but not limited to:
-Cannot get on the internet, browsers close after a few seconds
-Cannot get on Pandora
-Swype does not work, even after reinstall. I cant download new version because I cannot get on the internet because of the browser issue.
-Menu button no longer unlocks the phone This is awful, my android device is now just a phone.
so I was jokin around with my friend at a bar and we started looking up naughty pictures with a free pron program that I found on the market. We were comparing the people in the bar to the people in the photos and we found some hilarious matches. Anyway, that was last Thursday. Now I see that the pictures that were pulled up on my phone are now easily viewable by merely trying to attach a picture to a text message or an email. Basically, if anyone looks at my phone and tries to see my pictures or something they will see these stupid pictures. The phone says these pictures are saved in the SD Card Cache. How can I clear this cache? I've unmounted the card, twice. No go. I've uninstalled the horrible program (it was free and you get what you pay for, I guess). I needs me some help! I've been perusing the interwebs looking for help and this forum seemed like the most active place right now.View 2 Replies View Related
I am currently at 2.1 rooted, S-off, stock radio.I just flashed stock recovery over clockworkmod.I am wondering if it is possible to upgrade to 2.2 with the OTA and skip the wiping of data? Where do I obtain the stock OTA? I have been poking around and I am not finding it.View 1 Replies View Related
I just rooted. I did a Nandroid backup and it saved it to my SD card. My question is, if I install a ROM that needs to do a full wipe, does it wipe my SD card too? Should I copy the Nandroid Backup folder to my PC beforehand?View 5 Replies View Related

If you do it through the phones own settings whats the difference? Or should you just do it under the Clockwork recovery to be safe? Either way you wont lose root right?View 2 Replies View Related

I pre-ordered an Incredible and I plan to sell my Eris. I scanned through some posts and I see that there have been just a couple of short responses to this question in other forums, so I will ask the question here in the hope that it is useful to others. Question: for safety/privacy, is it adequate to wipe my Eris via the following method before selling it? Settings --> Security --> Factory Data Reset
Do I need to do more, or will this cover it?
When I delete a file with astro the SD card cache is populating files which are being shown in my albums picture (gray pics). Anybody else getting this?View 2 Replies View Related
Does the Incredible offer the full Exchange Support including Pin Lock, Remote Wipe without having to and get touchdown? That is the main thing that is going to keep me from getting it and staying with my iPhone.View 30 Replies View Related
I feel really dumb just asking this, but I don't want to wipe anything and I don't want a separate radio install. I'd like to get root, do s-off, and do one ROM flash or whatever that updates me to 2.2 and let's me get on with my life.
Someone linked to a ROM that said it was based on the real ota 2.2, but that doesn't make sense to me if you have to update your radio first and wipe your phone, when the ota doesn't require that.
Should I just try to flash without backing up stuff and wiping and hope for the best? I think I have a phobia of some sort here involving stuff with more than 3 or 4 steps.
I'm implementing an image cache system for caching downloaded image.
My strategy is based upon two-level cache:
Memory-level and disk-level.
My class is very similar to the class used in the droidfu project
My downloaded images are put into an hashmap and the Bitmap objet is wrapped inside a SoftRererence object.
Also every image is saved permanently to the disk.
If a requested image is not found into the Hashmap<String,SoftReference<Bitmap>> it will be searched on the disk, readed, and then pushed back into the hashmap. Otherwise the image will be downloaded from the network.
Since I store the images into the phisical device momery, I have added a check for preserve the device space and stay under a 1M of occupied space:
This method is called sometime afte a disk writing:
What I'd like to add is the same check on the HashMap size to prevent it will grow too much. Something like this:
My question is:
What could be a right MAX_MEMORY_SIZE value? Also, Is it a good approach? A good answer also could be: "Don't do it! SoftReference is already enough"
Once i partition my SD using rom manager i don't need to do it again unless i format my card right?Can flash new roms, wipe, factory reset etc and not worry about it?View 2 Replies View Related
This is for everyone who gets the "Insufficient space available" message when trying to install an app on a ROM with Apps2SD support. You need to partition your SD card! Here are steps on how to partition your SD card.
1. BACKUP your SD card! Partitioning will erase everything on your SD card. Mount your Eris to your computer and copy everything on your SD card into a separate folder on your computer.
2. Boot into recovery. (Hold the Volume up and Power button at the same time)
3. When you are in recovery, choose Partition sdcard.
4. Select Partition SD
5. Choose your swap size. (I chose 32MB)
6. Select the size of your partition. (I chose 512MB)
7. After partitioning, choose SD:ext2 to ext3 from the Partition sdcard menu.
8. Reboot your phone.
9. Make sure you have Apps2SD checked under Settings > Applications. (You don't have to do this with some ROMs)
10. To check if you have partitioned your SD card correctly, go to Settings > SD card & phone storage > SD card secondary. (Some ROMs don't show this)
11. Copy your backup of your SD card back to your SD card.
12. You can now run Apps2SD in any ROM that supports it.
When flashing ROMs with Apps2SD support, you no longer have to reinstall your apps.

I recently rooted my htc desire using revoked 3.21 but and inserted a new 8 GB sd-card, the thing I am wondering now is how to partition this sd-card to use the mod apps to SD. I thought there should be an option in the Clockworkmod screen, but I cant find it.View 20 Replies View Related
1) Does partitioning your SD card wipe your SD card?
2) Is it true that once partitioned, you cannot delete the partition from Windows Disk Management?
I am new to not only the forum but the phone and rooting the phone as well. I have a desire on froyo 2.2, and just rooted it using the unrevoked 3.21 method. Now i would like to use apps 2 sd properly with partitions and whatever? Again my apologies, i do not fully understand the process and any information would be much appreciated.View 3 Replies View Related
I was planning on flashing a ROM. Basically, I created a partition for Apps2SD and I was unsure if it had created or not. I used Quick System Info, and it said "information unavailable", so I'd assumed it hadn't worked. I think it has worked, as I only have 14.35GB of my 16GB card remaining, and I'm sure I had a lot more than that available, even with the contents I previously had on it. How can I remove the partition to make the SD card "whole again" so I can begin this process again?View 21 Replies View Related
I tried to partition my SD card and install VillainRom 11.9.1 using the 'normal installation' method described at this link create an ext partition. Something went wrong and my SD card was pretty much wiped clean. I lost pics and files (which isn't much of a problem) but I'm more concerned about losing nandroid back-ups and everything else that was put by the rooting process like the amon-ra recovery stuff. Can someone let me know what I should have and where I can get it?View 12 Replies View Related
