Help! Woke up this morning & my EVO's internal memory says 100% full
My phone IS rooted, and all my apps except one are on my SD card, but this morning I woke up and my EVO now says its available internal memory is 0MB. (And I don't have tons of apps anyway.) This has resulted in many things not working properly, too. Everything is force closing because of low memory.
How the heck can I go to bed with 55MB of internal memory and wake up with 0MB? No automatic updates or downloads were done overnight, either.

SD card: 4.89GB free (of 8GB)
Internal memory: 40.05MB
As someone who's a relatively new EVO and Android user--got my EVO in October 2010--I have since then installed and uninstalled many apps. I rooted my phone in December. During this time, I have never wiped my Dalvik cache but did so today. I would have thought that I would have recovered some internal memory, but it doesn't seem like I have. In fact, it appears I've pretty much recovered NO additional memory.

Any widgets (like weather) up and running? You need to go through your apps. Some are obviously hogs.

I have 53 apps in internal memory, and another 20 or so apps on the card. My Evo has 265 megs of internal memory available. Not rooted and stock froyo rom...
Some of them include Slingbox (SlingPlayer), DirecTV, AIM, Chase Bank, ScoreMobile, K-9 mail, Go SMS, and several more.

I still recommend a hard reset. It appears to me that you have a borked Evo.. Backup your data first, like call logs and notes. Your Contacts and Calendar should already be backed up to the cloud. Then do a fresh install of your apps. If you do a reinstall of your apps from a source like MyBackup Pro, AppMonster or Astro, the Market won't see your free apps for update purposes. The Market will have your paid apps listed after you log back into your Google account.

I suggest a full wipe and switch to a rom that allows more space due to sense being removed such as CM7, MIUI, or vaelpak.Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

CM7 does have 4G enabled, and if you use HDMwIn with it you can mirror your devices display via hdmi. Head over to the CM7 thread in the hacks section.
Full wipe is going to be needed, so use titanium or appbrain to backup your apps.Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"
