So I was installing a new ROM to try it out and decided to clean the phone out and start fresh. So I pulled everything off the phone to my PC. Then flashed the ROM, minimal G-Apps, and the kernel. Then I look at the file manager and I have 5.04 GB free of 28.1 GB. What gives?
I wiped all the caches, prior and there was nothing other than the zip and TWRP on the phone. Is there something else that I should be doing, like formatting the internal memory prior to flashing or something?
