    My old Nexus One, unrooted, "Android Version 2.3.6", has finally stopped updating its apps due to lack of space. Google's default stuff has outgrown its memory, I guess, even deleting all the 3rd party apps I don't actively use.

    Any suggestions on how to keep my stock Nexus One it as healthy as possible with minimal effort?

    Thanks

    Remove all your photos and use auto back up for photos. Upgrade?

    To answer my own question tentatively (I haven't done it yet):

    1. optionally create a full backup
    2. install cyanogenmod (7 or higher) to easy-root the phone
    3. create an /ext3 partition on the SD card using any tool such as the gparted LiveCD
    4. install the simple2ext (s2e) app from the market. The app moves virtually all your apps to the SD card leaving loads of space.
    5. optionally, upgrade to the latest Android: look for the most recent "Evervolv version in the xda-developers nexus-one thread".

    Good luck! Please post another answer if you've done this.
