    The maximum number of directories in Linux (which is what you're looking at) is global, not per-directory, so if the root directory needs more inodes than it's currently using, it will use them. (There's a probable maximum of 64,000 directories, which you'll probably never come close to in a phone.)

    What you're probably seeing is the amount of root directory being used. That's irrelevant. The maximum number of directory entries depends on how Linux was set up when the ROM was written, and you can't change that unless you know how to rip the ROM apart, install Linux with more space for directories, then make up the ROM so you can flash it.
