Exclamation Insufficient space when i try to install any app?

Ok well ive been looking around everywhere trying to find a solution but cant seem to find it so im posting it here.
Recently i decided to start with a fresh rom. I am using mirage - cyanogenmod 7.2 or something like that. I installed all my apps that i needed etc. I also created an ext2 partition to use with link2sd. The partition is about 600mb.

After a few dozen apps i started to get this error "insufficient space on the device"
Everywhere i check they say to check if you have space on the sd card but i feel it has nothing to do with the sd card. In link2sd there is this partition called /cache/download which i think is where the play store downloads the apps before it installs them.
Does anyone have a solution? Also i can post a screenshot of what i am talking about if i can.
BTW im pretty new to this whole rooting thing..

if you read the link2sd howto, it say you have to reboot sometimes to regain space when it does that.

Check (Android) Settings > Storage. If it is using way too much space for apps, you'll have to wipe data/cache and reflash the ROM. I've had that happen to me on a few ROMs. It was due to me not flashing the ROM properly.

If you have plenty of space, then you might just have to clear the data on the play store. Go to Settings > Apps > Management > All > Play Store > Clear data.

Note that I don't have this device, so my directions may not be 100% correct with your device. But it'll be similar to that.

Check /etc/init.d/ for the file 01mvdalvik it is a script that moves your dalvik cache from your internal memory. This sometimes causes problems. If you do have this script rename it 01mvdalvik.bak or move it to /sdcard/ and reboot into recovery. Clear your cache and dalvik cache and then reboot device and go back to using Link2SD.

Since you are new to rooting i would suggest that you read the sticky^ "DO NOT FACTORY RESET YOUR ROOTED PHONE! "

I have tried deleting cache and dalvik in recovery. Still the same. I know it has nothing to do with my rom because i have seen people have the same problem even with the stock rom. I have enough space for internal memory, sd card and sd ext. They are pretty much only half filled. The only one that has 3mb left is called /cache/download. I believe it is in the phone and not the sd card. I have tried looking in cache but there is nothing in there.
When i tried renaming the file 01dalvik i wasnt allowed to. I guess it is read-only.

Try this from a terminal emulator:
su
cd /cache
mv download download.old
mkdir -p /sdcard/cache/download
ln -s /sdcard/cache/download download

Note: The start of the last line is a small case L not an i. Make sure you get the spaces correct as well.

This pretty much does what MacFett mentioned, just using a terminal.

What I posted and what Andy posted do the opposite thing actually. the 01mvdalvik moves the dalvik from the user partition to one of the system partitions. This causes the Play Store to think that there isn't enough space for a download.

What Andy posted creates a director on the SD card and then tells the system to use that directory to download to it rather than /cache/download/ the problem with this method, is that it now causes the play store to FC. (It may work now, but 5 or 6 months ago when I last used it, it caused a lot of problems). This method used to work great.

I know you said "other users of the rom don't have this problem." But did you check for this file? You may be using a build of the ROM that has it and they are not. The YMMV also applies to this situation.

OK. Now I'm really confused MacFett??? This is taken from your post below: If you do have this script rename it 01mvdalvik.bak or move it to /sdcard/ and reboot into recovery.

Didn't you just suggest for them to move it to the /sdcard/ as a solution??? Lol
Maybe my eyesight is playing tricks on me, or is it my brain (duh, where did it go George)

Yes I suggested moving the script, by moving the script it no longer does anything. If it isn't in the /etc/init.d/ folder the device doesn't run it at boot.

It is like the Startup folder in Windows. If the program is removed from the folder it no longer starts at boot.

Ok so now im confused. Should i try the terminal emulator thing as my solution or not? If not then how can i successfully rename the file and move it to my sdcard? If the device no longer does anything with the dalvik file how does that solve my problem?

EDIT:
Ok so i found out how to rename the file using es file explorer. I renamed the file successfully,cleared cache,and cleared dalvik cache. I booted up and now i have 36.29mb used of 110mb. I can install apps now. One last question, will this work again when it fills up again?

You can if you want move 01mvdalvik back to /etc/init.d/ reboot clear cache and dalvik again. You may have the problem again, you may not.

Otherwise keep it the way it is, you won't have as much space but you will be able to download and update apps.

Default 01mvdalvik file help

I can't delete, rename or move this 01mvdalvik file. Every app I've tried to manipulate it just tells me it can't be done. Any suggestions?

Are you using a root file explorer, or a terminal emulator?
ES File explorer is the best free file explorer, but you have to go into the settings to set everything up. Make sure you mount the file system as r/w (read/write) or you will not be able to make any changes to the file system. Change it back to r/o when your done.

I've tried both ES and the stock one on the Mirage ROM.

My terminal crashes every time I launch it, so I guess I'm SOL.

Not yet.
There is still your PC, Andriod SDK, ADB, and shell commands.
Let me know if your up to it. It's actually really easy.

Please tell me the easiest way if u have time. So far I've used a terminal app, a couple mounting rw apps, but still get invalid packages and insufficient space all the time. Nothing seems to let me manipulate that file. Thanks in advance.

Do You have the Java6 JDK and the Android SDK installed and in your computers system path?
I'm assuming you have the LG USB drivers already installed, right.

Usually I use my mac, and that is rarely. It will mount the USB but I don't have any of the programs you mention on it. I could access a pc and install them tonight though.

When I use the mounting apps to make it rw, the phone reads that it was a success. But I still can't do anything to that file, so maybe I'm doing something wrong.

I have no experience with mac's. I'm just learning Linux on a computer with Ubuntu 12.04 and Gnome Classic (learned a little with the phone).

Not a whole lot of mac user's here. If you can get access to a Windows computer, then install all these:
1. The LG USB drivers- http://www.lg-phones.org/wp-content/uploads/LG-Optimus-V.zip leave phone unpluged from PC. After install restart computer so the other two drivers will install. After restart plug phone in to finish install.

2. The Java6- Java Downloads for All Operating Systems Version 6 Update 35

3. The Android SDK- New pre-packaged ADB installation The easiest way to get the SDK installed with the path to the adb.exe in your system path. If you don't get the proper out put after typing in: adb devices with the phone plugged in then finish the rest of the tutorial. There is a link that shows you how to put the path to the adb.exe in manually.

4. Open up a command prompt (terminal) and type in this:
adb shell (you should get a # after, if not you will need to type in: su)
cd /cache
mv download download.old
mkdir -p /sdcard/cache/download
ln -s /sdcard/cache/download download

Note: MacFett knows some more script for moving the dalvik. Try the script I used first and see if that helps.

Andy do you currently use that script ( in step 4)? Because the last time I used it it made the play store force close and I couldn't use it at all any more.

I haven't had to use it in a while. The OP needs something that might work. I never had it force close the Market before?
I didn't know how long before you would come along with the shell commands for the dalvik, so I gave him something that has worked for me in the past.

If you throw it out there, I'll write it down so I won't forget it. Then I'll use it instead of the other.

What you posted is correct, but as far as I have seen with both of my Optimus Vs, it no longer works.

If a file explorer is crashing, you can use terminal emulator to rename the file.
Launch terminal emulator. $ and # mean the prompt, not something to enter. <- means press enter.

$ su <-
# mv /etc/init.d/01mvdalvik /sdcard/01mvdalvik <-

This will move the script from the folder that is read on start up to the SDcard where it won't be read. After do this clear the cache and data for the Play Store, reboot into recovery and clear your cache and dalvik partitions then reboot. Just as a precaution you may want to uninstall one or two of your larger apps to ensure you don't run out of room when your dalvik is rebuilt on the internal storage.

dfunk44: Do you have a terminal emulator installed? What version of the MiRaGe ROM do you have? You could just try and download a fresh MiRaGe ROM or a different ROM. I think your problems might be related to some residual data that was left over from the previous ROM.

If you want try a fresh download of the MiRaGe ROM or you can try this build of the BACKside: BACKside-IHO-VM670-01312012.zip

The Green Machine theme for this build (if you like green): GreenMachineTheme-01312012.zip

The Gapps: http://cmw.22aaf3.com/gapps/gapps-gb-20110828-signed.zip

To make sure you don't leave any residual data put obijohn's update_wiper_1.3.zip onto the SD card : update_wiper_1.3.zip

ROM installation instructions: Now you need to do all these things (this must be done when installing a new ROM) from the recovery.
A. Wipe data/factory reset
B. Wipe cache partition.
C. Wipe dalvik cache (advanced section)
Now that your rooted, YOU MUST NEVER USE THE FACTORY RESET IN THE PRIVACY MENU ON THE PHONE . This will mess up your phone and require a PC and much gnashing of your teeth, and possible loss of some system functionality.
D. Go to mounts and storage. Select format boot,system,data,and cache
E. Go to install zip from sd card
F. Go to select zip from sd card, select the update_wiper_1.3.zip, then select the Gingerbread ROM.zip, then the Gapps.zip (if you want to install the theme do not do so at this time). When done hit the back button once and select reboot system now.


G. It will take 5-10min.for the initial reboot. If you installed a Gingerbread ROM you will be asked to sign in,skip all this.

H. Now you can go to the market app and click on it and sign in to your google account (you must have your e-mail address and log in code). Reboot the phone twice then (if you want to install the theme go back to the recovery and install the Theme after wiping cache partition and dalvik cache, when done reboot), go back to the market and download the app you used to backup your apps. Restore your apps. Set up your apps. Once you get everything set up just the way you like it and all your apps are just where you want them,go back into your recovery and make a backup of that ROM.

WARNING: Do not restore system data from a backup. Do not restore apps from your backups that are already included in the new ROM (you can restore app data). This will cause force closure issues and can corrupt the ROM.

Thanks for your help people. I'm not sure what fixed it since I tried all kinds of stuff. I got a little misty eyed when all my apps finally updated. I guess I'll keep the OV at least until Black Friday!
