My question is...... if I erase everything off my Tablet's internal SD card including Gnabo how will I be able to reinstall Gnabo V6 back onto my Tablet?

Will there be anything left on the Tablet's internal SD card to allow me to reinstall Gnabo?

Is that any clearer?
That's what Mikyno and I suggested since from the start. As I written in my other post if you just do the factory data reset via settings/accounts you will just reset you tablet,which means it will delete all the apps you installed and the Internal SD but it will retain Gnabo rom. But if you factory reset your tablet via recovery it will surely delete Gnabo rom and all the apps you've installed, but it will not delete internal SD. If you decide to delete all including the Internal SD, you can have a copy of Gnabo rom in your external SD card so you can reinstall Gnabo rom via recovery.Hope that's clear enough.

P.S. I don't know what will you solve in miscellaneous files if that is normal. One solution to that is don't install alot of apps with large data like games(which I think is crazy). And please read again my other responce to you I already answered all your questions above in my other posts.

Just done that. Haven't reinstalled any of my downlaoded app so what's on the tablet is just the Gnabo Rom and guess what....Miscellaneous Files is showing as 4.60GB!!!!! So no change even after carrying out the advice.

The mystery continues.

Than there is something else as filchi756 screenshots after a full wipe are very clear. Only 200 MB of storage occupied by miscellaneous files. Last try is full wipe and format sdcard from TWRP. Reflash the rom and let me know. What if you tap on miscellanous files? Which files are there?

I'm currently flashing JB again just to see what size Miscellaneous Files is. Once installed and set up i'll report back as to the JB situation.


Just flashed JB back onto my Tablet and guess what.....4.68GB for Miscellaneous Files!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I give up!!!!

I will check when I get home, but I think there is a partition that is named misc. You have to use adb to print the partitions names and sizes or you may find a app at the store. edit: download partition table by lakeshman. And under advanced it shows all partitions with there name. My tablets at home so I cannot see.

I deleted something called cloudagent and another file that was using a few hundred MB and have now got the Miscellaneous Files down to 823MB!!

Seems like deleting Cloudagent (whatever that is) did something!

Again many thanks to all for their time and trouble.

I got 7 gb apps. I dont understand yet if when I. send them to sd they go in internal or external. I think android has a problem when sd is full it start to be slow.

well your progressing.

I found no misc partition ( that explains why your size got smaller)

I see from comparing tablets storage view against diskinfo app that
Used space, Cached data, Miscellaneous files and Available space is the internal sdcard.

So glad you sort it out. But if you follow our suggestion from the start (erase the Internal SD), you might have solve your problem much earlier. .Anyway that's part of learning even for me.
