Uninstalled app reducing internal storage

    I tried installing some games from the Humble Bundle. They install through the site's app, but not with any great success.

    After I tried install one such game today, the app seemed to crash and the game didn't install. However, I did get a warning that my internal memory (which was at about 17mb, I have an HTC :() had sunk to below 15mb.

    Resetting the phone didn't clear this, and I have no indication through App2SD that any new applications are installed or that any existing application has increased appreciably in size.

    I was wondering if there's any way to clear out this apparently used memory.

    Try clearing your caches first using recovery, then perform a reset.

    Rooted?

    My Desire is entirely stock, running Android 2.2.

    I tried a system reboot, but the low storage icon is still there. App2SD reports no cache to clear.

    Definitely switching from an HTC come contract renewal time.

    I don't think apps2sd can clear the Dalvik cache, which is most likely where the memory is being held. That you should do from recovery.

    Can't do from recovery, the phone is stock.

    Reset to factory settings my only option then?

    That's all I can think of.
