    Default Sprint Galaxy S3: 4.3 Storage Issue

    After taking the 4.3 OTA update on my 32 GB GS III back when it came out and then re-rooting sometime later...and now restoring back to stock using the stock tar file from an XDA post which was around 1 GB in size my internal storage reads that the system memory is using 19.95 GBs....Have since re-rooted and installed CM and still get the same result..not sure what has happened but nothing i have done so far will clear the internal storage..

    Any suggestions on what the problem is and how to fix it?? Would re-setting my flash counter with Triangle Away have any affect on this?? Any help would greatly be appreciated.

    You loaded a pre-rooted stock tar file from XDA, or the full-blown 4.3 firmware? This was using Odin?

    Does the Storage view show the correct Total space, or that number is borked?Sent from my rooted, debloated, deodexed Sinclair ZX-80 running CM -0.001 using Tapatalk

    MK3 FULL stock tar extracted from Kies according to the XDA post here.. [FULL RESTORE][TAR] Stock MK3 Odin FLASHABLE [4.3] - xda-developers

    Storage does read the correct total space..32 GB...just that the System Memory is 19.95 GBs...

    Before flashing stock, did you do a full wipe, including data?

    Can you post a screenshot of the Storage view?

    Did you wipe /system prior to loading the latest OS image?

    From your OP I can't tell when the problem started (after the OTA? after CM?).

    On an unrelated note, it makes no sense to me that the Storage view looks so different - can't these people implement one view so that everyone can compare apples to apples?
