Acer Iconia A100 ICS rooted, unlocked, backed up, CWM, Superuser.
I've successfully swapped the mount points and now have combined the internal 8GB and the external 32GB to act as one single drive. The machine now sees itself as having 40GB of internal storage. Works perfectly BUT...
...now I'm permanently getting the ol' "Insufficient storage available" message on EVERY app I try to install. Even worse - I've done massive uninstalling of almost ALL my programs, and now I can't re-install ANY apps with getting the insufficient storage message, either from Play Store, or as a standalone apk installer file.
- Lucky Patcher
- rebooted countless times
- set all system files and folders to RW
- every type of cache cleaning program
- increased my swap filesize to maximum
- every type of past-program-cleanup tidy program
- tested, verfified, but still replaced, the 32GB sd chip
- used a terminal emulator to properly rewipe the cache folder
- restricted the list or startup programs to only system-required apps
- using SDK, have tried both the "set install to internal" and external drives
There is very little left on my system now (95% free), and the system runs beautifully and passes all diagnostics. I've just reached the point now where I cannot install or reinstall even the tiniest tiny programs. Of the few remaining programs, I dare not uninstall CWM, Superuser or ADB Control, for fear of not being able to even restore past backups.
In short, the more capacity I give back to the system, the less capacity it has.
