    Hey yall,

    I recently installed XtrSense rom on my wifes Eris, and now she came to me today saying that she is getting "Low on space" errors, sure enough I checked, she only has 14mb on internal memory.

    I checked the amount of apps she has, and it wasnt much more then I had the phone when it was stock, she has like 20 apps in there, and when I had the phone on Stock, I had 30 apps and 100+mb free

    So, is it the rom that is taking up all the space? or the Nandroid backup?
    If I enabled Apps2SD will that move all apps to the sd card?

    The Nandroid backups are on your SD Card.

    Do you have the HTC Sense Facebook syncing? For some reason, I had a bad sync on one particular ROM where it created 5 copies of each Facebook contact!! Instead of having 200, I had over 1000!! It killed my memory.

    How much space are your contacts using?

    30MB for the contacts, biggest thing on there, I did think that was strange but not sure how big it is supposed to be, you think thats it?

    Most definitely the problem. It frustrated me so much, that I switched to a different ROM and the problem was resolved. Maybe someone who is running the ROM you are can help you with it. I'm sure there are duplicate contacts (perhaps from HTC Sense FB if you're using it).

    Sometimes disconnecting the sync and re-syncing will help. Maybe reflash the ROM? I'm not sure. I took the easy way out and flashed a different ROM. I still use the HTC FB contact sync. I don't use the FB for Android contact sync. All is good for me so far on Sense-able. Contacts synced properly in about 2 minutes.

    I had the same problem with xtr 3.0.3. i fixed it by disabling the fb for sense sync under settings>accounts and sync, and facebook contacts synching within the fb app. then went into settings>apps>contacts storage and cleared data. this will wipe all contacts but then you can resync google contacts. then download syncmypics from the market and use to sync fb pics to contacts. hope this helps

    Also keep in mind that xtr roms are de-odexed, so the amount of space available for apps is diminished by close to 20mb or so.
