I also noticed that 4.3 eats up a ton of space - I used to run at like 14% device storage being used, now I'm at almost 60%!
Is there any ROM out there that I could flash that would drastically free up space on the device as well as eliminate the red and yellow messages at the boot?
There is no way to gain "user available space" even if the rom is half the size it is.
The PIT file (partition information table) pre-determines the size of
the partition where the rom resides which means that regardless of
the size of the rom the space it takes up will be the same and it will
not have any effect on "user available space".
Modifying the PIT file or flashing a pit file which is modified
will result in a expensive shiny brick with a black screen.
Have a great day, enjoy!
Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).
