[HOW-TO] Fix internal storage if 16GB now shows 8GB
I've seen a few threads about 16GB version phones losing half their storage after flashing.
Here are the steps to fix it:
As dellenrules mentioned in post #48
there appears to be an easier way to fix the problem:
-Boot into STOCK RECOVERY
(If you are running a custom recovery you must flash to stock)
If for some reason that doesn't work, you can try this method:
First, you'll need fastboot.exe on your computer. If this happened to you, you should have fastboot installed
If not, see section A of efrant's "back-to-stock" guide.
Next, You'll want the latest occam image. https://developers.google.com/androi...s/images#occam
Finally, boot into the bootloader and run these commands...
fastboot erase boot
fastboot erase cache
fastboot erase recovery
fastboot erase system
fastboot erase userdata
fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-mako-makoz10o.img
fastboot -w update image-occam-jdq39.zip
Enjoy your 16GB again.
Note #1 If you encounter a boot loop after this procedure boot into stock recovery (use volume up and power to open the recovery menu) then wipe cache and factory reset.
Note #2 erikieperikie
tested restoring a Nandroid backup after completing this process. The backup applied successfully and they still had 16GB user space. Details here
