Exclamation [Q] Storage Low even with link2sd installed & 800mb free internal space

Hey guys,

I have searched so many threads and still I have issue with low space.

Currently I'm on CM11, partitioned an 8GB external sdcard to fat32 and ext2 (1GB). Link2sd is running fine. However when my internal space reaches around 800MB, I can't install apps anymore!!!

I have also used internal to external app and ext2sd from k2wl...it does swap space but the issue is I can't install any apps after that. Is there a better way to work around this issue?

Thanks in advance

remove unnecessary storage apps and just keep link2sd
also wipe sd ext in recovery and remount script then see if it works
if it does not work in current rom i think will definitely work in a fresh rom

Yeah I did format system and sdcard, got 3.7 back from internal memory and created ext2 for link2sd so far so good, wish there was a way to get the other extra 4gb

have you tried sdmaid
if not then try it also
it is also a good app to clear cache and space
i am sure you will not be disappointed with that one
