    Sorry if this has been discussed before, I couldn't find it if it was...

    So for a different phone, the ZTE, there's this cool guide to getting space back
    [GUIDE] How to get more FREE SPACE for your apps - ZTE Blade / Libra - Blade.MoDaCo.com - Android @ MoDaCo

    Some applies to the Ally, but the second item, repartitioning, isn't something I'd know how to do on the Ally given what is needed on the ZTE. I see from AntTek App Manager that my System cache is 128MB and has 127MB free, while my Internal is 152MB and has 16.64MB free. If I do pretty much anything I run out of space.

    I'd love to knock down the System cache to maybe 20 MB, and have another 108MB for my Internal so that I don't have to delete an app every time I see a cool one I'd like to add.

    But it looks like I'd somehow need to back up the whole phone, and then create a partition layout for the Ally. Anyone know anything about that?

    I don't know what all these Odexed ROMs are all about, but it seems that might be related. Googling didn't make it clear; it seemed they might be using the SDCard for apps, which I don't want to do.

    (Because of these problems, I upgraded to a Droid 4 for 14 days, and then sent it back. Keyboard on the Droid 4 so much worse than the Ally, the phone is so much heavier, the battery life is about 1/2 of the Ally, and you can't even put in a new battery! I carry a couple extra batteries with me when I go GPS hiking for the day...)

    I've moved your thread over to the All Things Root forum so you'll get more helpful info from the root community. :)

    Repartitioning the internal NAND memory can prove to be rather difficult and possibly dangerous. Please make sure you read and know what you're doing prior. Don't want to see any trips to brick city!! :)
