I am a relative newbie to the Android scene so I am just getting used to how everything works. I recently rooted my Huawei Ascend g300 after being told of all the supposed benefits this brings. However, I have yet to notice any difference in the way the phone operates and its overall performance is no better than it was before.
The main problem I have is constantly being told I have insufficient storage. This means I can no longer download apps from the Google Play store, canít download email and am unable to upload via Google Plus. I am mystified why I canít download apps as the default storage is set to the SD card which has over 17gb of free space.
From what I can gather from reading various forums, the problem seems to lie in a partition on the internal storage which appears to be about 756mb in size. The internal storage is 2gb I seem to recall. However, there always appears to be no more than 36mb free space even after I have cleared the cache and stopped running apps. I reclaim a small amount of space which is quickly eaten up again.
My question is, is there a way I can delete this partition safely? Would it require a reset? I canít even seem to access the files on the drive or see what is taking up so much room. I have various utilities on my phone but I am unsure how they work and fear bricking my phone if I have to flash it or something. One of these is Android Partition but I thought I would seek the advice of other users before I did something potentially risky.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
