Default Phone storage too low

Hello. I am really not sure if this is the right place to post my query. I am sorry if its not.

I recently downloaded PikaOS2 ROM for my CHD A116i. Everything seems to be working fine for 2 days. I am really loving the rom. Last night I downloaded NBA 2k14 from a torrent. It is about 600mb file. To my surprise there was just an apk file of that size rather then apk plus data which I was expecting. I tried to install the apk but I always get an error saying not enough space. My default write disk is external SD card which has a space of around 5 GB available and my phone storage has a capacity of 0.98 GB out of which 286mb is available. I have no idea why its trying to install the game on my phone storage even though I have selected external SD card as my primary write disk.
I was also wondering why is there another slot of internal SD card which has around 1.76gb space and not even a single mb is being saved there. From what I can see is that this 1.76gb of space is going waste as I have never seen anything being written or saved on this internal SD card.
Anyways, can someone please help me installing the game.
I tried posting this on the official PikaOS2 thread, but it won't let me post there.
Thank you in advance
