Today I rooted my XPeria X8, Android 2.1. The reason for me to root it was/is to remove some stock apps, so I can get more space on the device.
The apps I want to get rid of:
- Prince of Persia
- Crazy Penguin
- Tower Block
- (some other games I can't recall)
First I froze the apps, just to make sure the phone would work OK.
Then I unfroze them and made backups of them.
And then with ANTek Explorer I browsed to the /system/apps folder, and deleted the APK files.
But the phone still shows the same amount of free space as before, and still issues the low space warning.
I searched the phone file structure for the APKs, and all I found are the backups on the SDCard.
Re-booted the phone, and still low space warning and same amount of free space as before.
So, if I deleted the APKs from the system folder, why don't I get more free space?
Thanks for any advice.
