    I finally received the firmware update. What a disappointment for app2sd!! Hardly touched the sides. My question is though since the update my phone is showing 16gb internal storage with 12gb used!!? Is this just a bug??

    I've got 5gb of apps on my phone so she there other 7gb has come from o don't know.

    Any info would be appreciated, also I no the "bloatware" is taking up a lot of space but what actually is this bloat ware and is rooting the only way to rid it?

    Thank you (I'm new to android)

    Would you recommend rooting my phone or be safe and deal with the lack of storage?

    If you have bigger game data like I do, rooting and installing folder mount is the way to go, I managed to put over 5 gb of game data on my ext sd. I still have 7 gb of internal left.

    Thank you for reply. I'm just worried of repercussions of root as I have not done it before and don't want to brick. Just can't believe there is no other way to free up storage that is stuff I don't actually want on my phone.

    The firmware update its self was big and all the bloatware on the phone sucks. I tried to root it and it kept saying failed I wish I can get rid of the bloatware.
