Default [Q] Not enough space for ROM slot 1. Safe Strap.

Trying to install a ROM for the first time and I'm using Safe Strap. I try to install a ROM on slot 1 or any other ROM slot for that matter and it says I don't have enough space for my Data partition. How can I make more space? I tried wiping the internal storage using Safe Strap but it gives me an error. Any suggestions?

Try to use clean master to clean app and system cache,and put some big data app in the ext-sd,it's an intuitive app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...nmaster.mguard
for a rom you need at least 2 gb
Some rom will boot only in rom slot 1 with safe strap,(all cyanogen mod "CM 10..1" for exemple) read the developer info

I am having this same issue. I deleted a ton of apps and ran the cleaner and it is still showing that I am short on space. What else can I do? Getting very aggravated.

Yes, if you have a ton if pics, music, downloads, etc on your internal memory transfer it to micro sd. Stated above "For a rom you need at least 2 gigabytes" is mis leading,(if not referring to total partition size) as you are givn a choice of 1, 2 or 3 gig space. I have never used anything over 1gig, and never ran out if space/memory. Factory reset does not clean your phones storage.. I suggest manually deleting/ formatting for best results to get your space/memory back.

so I just tried Safestrap on my S4, says I have 12MB of space left. I just wiped my entire phone, and it's still at 12MB of space, before and after the wipe, am I missing something?

EDIT: I installed the ATT version of it by mistake, genius me

Default have a look at this link

I had a similar problem until I found this link, I think I just used the top/first method as I had luckypatcher installed already.

DONATE TO ME
SafeStrap uses the space on your internal sdcard for creating slots.

Apart from the data, it creates two more partitions viz system and boot so the amount of free space required is (sizeOf) data + 900 MB.
So if you chose say 1GB for data, then you must have about 1.9 GB of free space on your internal sdcard.

Confirm before you try to create a slot.

I said "Cool.! Send me the link. !!"
