    Welcome to Android Central! I'm afraid you're stuck with how the hardware was configured. Review this guide for tips on how to free up as much app storage as possible: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...-warnings.html

    There are two separate Monster updates available on Google Play. I really like my newest M7 but, I bought it knowing that it had issues - one was the limited storage available for installing apps. The other issue is a weak MicroUSB port that will break off of the internal circuit board with regular use of the provided Monster USB charging/connection cable, (which using results in a very tight fit.) The first monster update fixes a bug that causes random screen freezes. The second update unlocks the entire user available internal storage for use to install apps, (though not recommended, as too many apps, loading at start-up, will cripple the device through hogging of system resources.) I'd recommend not installing apps that load at start up, or, getting an app that kills them, and using it to prevent unnecessary waste of resources by apps you are not using, in getting the best performance from your tablet.

    The hardware problem, (fragile charging/data MicroUSB port), is a bit more involved, and voids the warranty - which Monster has a demonstrable reluctance in honoring when it comes to the MicroUSB port problem anyway. Getting the MicroUsb port reinforced as a preventative measure was an idea I adapted from an eBay re-seller's repair solution. While the seller who sold me my first M7 was not able to repair the port for data transfer, (which is leaps and bounds faster than using Bluetooth for transferring files), he was able to restore charging capability. He used a good epoxy glue to reinforce the MicroUSB port and, did not include the original Monster cable, (which much contributed to the breakage of the port anyway.)

    Wanting to make use of the MicroUSB port for data transfer, I decided to buy a new tablet and go into the device and epoxy it into place before it could break. That involved using a two part epoxy, and a guitar pick. (The guitar pick is a very good tool for getting the back cover separated from the side trim holding it in place on most all tablets - BTW). That is the easy part, You next have to remove cloth tape, that is used to hold the GPS antennae, the battery, and a few other wires in place. It's been awhile so, I don't recall if little Phillips head screws were involved too but, I don't think they were. Anyway, you will need to get the battery unstuck from the display it is rubber-cement glued to, in order to get to the MicroUSB port on the motherboard underneath. Be careful not to kink the foil pouch when doing so, as that can cause leakage which will damage the device. Some creasing is likely inevitable, (I couldn't avoid it), but kinking the pouch will damage the battery: (The difference has to do with the crease folding back on the outer edge(s) of the pouch.) You will next want to wait till your epoxy is good and warm, (nearly congealing) before applying it to the back of the MicroUSB port and the mother board. While waiting to apply the epoxy reduces its bonding strength somewhat, it helps keep the epoxy from leaking into the port, which can prevent you from using it. (A tacky, nearly jelly like consistency is what I used.) I also used an unconnected (to PC or charger) MicroUSB cable, inserted into the port, in trying to prevent leak-through which might have caused insertion issues. I'd never done this before but, it has worked out very well for me: My MicroUSB port is very solid, and I have preserved full use of its data and charging capabilities, now into about a year after purchasing the M7 tablet.

    Anyway, not sure if it will help you now, a year later, but, perhaps the info and preventative maintenance advice might help someone.

    There are two firmware updates for the M7 tablet, available through Google Play, provided by Monster. One of these makes the entire internal user storage available for use in installing apps. Just enter "Monster M7 Firmware Updater" in the search box.
