    Default Freeing up "Internal Space"

    The total amount is 165 MB and it's located at /data. This directory is important because the apps you download go into /data/app. Well, I found that you can delete the tombstone files in /data/tombstones. They're basically just log files for crashes. Then you clear the log_files.xml under /data/system/shared_prefs. Is there anything else that can be deleted safely under /data? And how can I increase the partition size without bricking?

    Have you done this tweak?

    http://forum.androidcentral.com/lg-o...che-cache.html

    That also will free up some extra space on the /data partition

    Need to have the Xionia kernel flashed for that to work.

    If you flash nRom 1.3.3 - that tweak is built in.

    I believe ThunderRom 1.5 also has that tweak included - but in a script?
    Not sure as I have not flashed ThunderRom to my phone yet.

    Thanks for that! Yeah, I have Xiona on the Stock ROM (I seem to be the only one that likes it xp). Yeah, that freed up about 60 megs...

    Also, everything in usagestats and dropbox can be removed safely in /data/system, batteryusage.bin can also be removed.

    Not sure if you can modify /data if not rooted, but you can go into "Settings->Applications -> Manage applications" and go through apps one by one. If it allows it, click "move to sd" for each app to open up space. (Can be done even if not rooted)

    btw, saved browser info takes up a LOT of room (I just noticed mine crawling over 21 MB...)

    clear cache's on some apps - just a thought...

    Instead of checking each app one by one, you can run by the Dolphin Browser team. Run it, press Menu, then "Move all". It will bring up the Manage Application screen for each app that can be moved to the SD card in series. There are other apps with the same functionality in case App to SD isn't to your liking.
