    I rooted my phone a couple of months ago and have slowly been removing bloatware. Yesterday I had 30mb of free internal space, today i went to download netfix app from the market and the download failed with a error like "bad install packet or something like that" then I got the low space warning and I checked my free space and it said 2mb. So I rebooted and it went up to 9mb then to 10mb and stopped. I cleared data for some apps and it went to 19mb. The question is what happened to my free space. Is there somewhere else I should look? ther is a folder called dalvik-cache that is dated today that has alot .dex files in it and some are as big as 5mb.:thinking:

    1) Install Link2SD from the Play Store
    2) Back-up SD card to your computer
    3) Partition your SD card in CWM
    4) Move your files back to your SD card from your computer
    5) Link applications to your SD card

    Problem solved.

    thanks for the response.
    I dont have CWM installed, where do i get it from? I did a search and all I could find was Rom Manager. And I read that this is not compatable with the admire.

    Thanks will try when I get home. Just one more question, Do I have to use one of these methods or can the partition be created in widows using mini tool or similar?

    Just create the partition in CWM. It's easy and will assure that your SD card can be recognized by the device. Just remember to leave the swap size at 0m, but you can make the partition as small or large as you want.
