    Hi.

    I don't know if you have noticed, but the Moto G comes with an useless cache partition with 652 MB of space. This is a lot of space for a smartphone that comes with only 5GB of usable space. The cache partiton is only used to keep the log files. 50MB - 100MB is more than enough for this purpose. I coulnd't find a guide that teach us how to repartition MMC devices, speacially the new ones like Moto G. Moto G uses a SD card to keep all the information, but only data partition is visible and can be used. You can acces the cache folder anytime, but you can't install or move apps there.

    The cache data is more than just log files. It is potentially cache for the entire system and applications.
    You can keep it under control through recovery.

    No it's not. Cache partition is only used to keep log files and maybe apks before installing it. Newest android versions use data partition to store all its cache. That's why I'm trying to use that free space.

    Thanks for you comment.

    /cache

    This is the partition where Android stores frequently accessed data and app components. Wiping the cache doesnt effect your personal data but simply gets rid of the existing data there, which gets automatically rebuilt as you continue using the device.

    As I said, newest android versions don't use cache partition for these purposes anymore. This article is old, 3 years ago. All the cache, accessed data and app components are now stored in the user partition.

    Thanks again for your comment.
