FYI, the original method for obtaining unlock codes from Ashergray or Mills has been blocked by Sony. Now, the only way to unlock has to be done through Allejandrissimo, and costs money.

A free solution is being worked on, but we are nearly back to square one as far as unlocking goes.

Halfway down the page Androhero has a (non-rooted) way to free up space (it works, I have anout 100 apps with 100mbs free)

Sent from my R800x using XDA App
Tips:
*Logcat or it never happened. *Search before posting *Go to User CP -> Edit Options -> switch "Number of Posts to Show Per Page" to 50. *Reporting Posts

Looks like I won't be doing anything android for a long time

Thanks for the lul'z
