Many Android phones have random and silly bugs—nothing serious, mind you, but things that can often be annoying. One such bug is the receiving a low storage warning when you have plenty of storage space left. While it may seem like a minor inconvenience, your Android device believing it has no space left can prevent you from doing a lot of things such as downloading new apps from the Google Play Store. This is a problem that has apparently plagued Samsung Galaxy S I9000 users for awhile. Now, there’s a fix.
While the issue has been resolved in the past, this particular mod is aimed at devices running CyanogenMod. This is because CM utilizes a small, but fast flash chip to store data in /datadata. However, this partition is just 170MB in size. For many users, this is no big thing, but for those who use a lot of apps, the dreaded low notification is quite the unwelcome guest.
This is where XDA Senior Member Wendigogo comes in, bringing a fix that alleviates the problems associated with the low storage notification. The fix gives users control over where applications store their cache. For larger applications that use a lot of space, you can move it to the standard /data partition and leave the other apps where they were. This eases the burden of the tiny partition somewhat, and should stave off the low storage issue for awhile.
