Hello guys

I connected with SSH to my phone

Now, here is the problem

/dev: 173528K total, 0K used, 173528K available (block size 4096)
/mnt/.lfs: Function not implemented
/mnt/asec: 173528K total, 0K used, 173528K available (block size 4096)
/system: 381568K total, 278604K used, 102964K available (block size 4096)
/data: 526696K total, 467800K used, 58896K available (block size 4096)
/cache: 35640K total, 320K used, 35320K available (block size 4096)
/efs: 6064K total, 816K used, 5248K available (block size 1024)


So
1) why are there so many partitions?

What files can I delete in DATA?

from what I'm learning, all the apps that I deleted with Titanium Backup where in /system

Now I understand why I still have so little memory

Here are the files

0 CGPS_LOG.txt
0 EVENT_LOG.txt
0 GNB_DEBUG.txt
8.0K GPS_NV_Data.bin
4.0K HALGPS_conf.cfg
0 NAV_DEBUG.txt
0 NMEA_DEBUG.txt
196.0K anr
23.8M app
0 app-private
36.0K backup
0 dalvik-cache
84.4M data
0 databases
0 dontpanic
250.0M fota
4.0K gps
1.0M local
9.4M log
0 lost+found
48.0K misc
16.0K property
800.0K system
464.0K tombstones
4.0K wifi

So if you delete /dalvik-cache you will regain at least 60MB of memory

So, I am feeling a little generous now

I will analyze what files are safe to delete

then I will do a bash program to delete the files

so you can run this program automatically, and then your Samsung Galaxy S will immediately have around 50-70MB of extra space

Now, can someone tell me what is the best and easiest way to publish this app into the Android market?

Do I need Java or Bash?
Or both?

I would really like to release my first app in the market

The idea would be to press a button, and immediately have around 60MB of extra space in your Galaxy S

It is recommended that you use a test group before releasing to public download. That's what we are here for. However, once we have cwm there will be rom's that will remove the "leftovers".

Titanium backup created two files: com.telenav.app.android.telenav-20110314-174328.properties
com.telenav.app.android.telenav-20110314-174328.tar.gz

The tar.gz file has this inside:
\data\com.telenav.app.android.telenav\
inside I see 4 folders:
.\databases
.\files
.\lib
.\shared_prefs

What should I do now if I want to restore the Bloatware?
The problem with it being a system app, I don't think titanium backup backups the actual app, just it's associated data.

What you need to do is prior to uninstalling it, locate it in the /system/app folder. Also, there may be an accompanying .lib file in the /system/lib. Save those somewhere on the sd card. Now you can safely remove the app using TB.

Also, fwiw, I'd leave the app, but you may notice on reboot, it runs a service in the background. You should be able to kill that service using from settings/apps/active services (wording might be different, but that's what it is on the evo). You may have to press stop several times to get it to stop restarting.

Finally, I've found the telenav app to have one superior trait over the google maps app. It seems to pick up more construction data/alerts than google maps does. Not far from me is a closed on ramp to one of the interstates. Google maps makes no indication of this, while the telenav app does. ymmv
