    i updated a few apps on my phone the other day and i noticed that the gmail app is 10.37mb, google maps is 10.15mb, facebook 5.93mb, and voice search is 4.41mb

    but if i uninstall the updates it goes to about half of what they are. so is there any way of deleting the original app, or anyway of reducing the size??

    any help lads??


    edit: i have a htc desire with 2.2

    I've done all the updates and that sounds about right except for gmail, remembering maps caches data, so you can clear that periodically.

    As for gmail, mine is only 184k.

    Certain apps like gmail and maps can't be moved to the sd card. It is internal.

    Yes to both questions, although I don't send very much in terms of large files.

    bit off topic but you like like you know a thing or two about rooting,

    tired to s-off but it got stuck on step 3, pulled battery out and not is stuck in h-boot. it says up the to 'alpharev' and s-off, i doubt it worked though since im stuck in h-boot.

    im running the stock rom no custom. and i have add2sd, i read somewhere that that could of caused the problem, but i have no way of getting back??

    any help??
