Tried it on Samsung Galaxy J700F but the app loads & crashes away without any error.. Hope it becomes compatible with this device looks great ..

When i Start the App on my rooted phicomm energy L it force closes, should i send you logcat?

Please open an issue here at submit your logcat.

How to check compression ratio?

Unfortunately there isn't a way to check this yet. You can always compare yourself: use the app without zdata enabled, note the data space, and use it again *with* zdata enabled.

Great concept. Testing it on my htc one a9. So far so good, though I wish there was a way to preserve data when enabling the app.

This is a WIP feature! I'll let you know when it's ready. Meanwhile, I *believe* you should be able to manually copy the app's data to another location (e.g. to your computer), run zdata, and paste it back.

Congrats dev this app just featured on the portal.... First of all Thanks for the app.... Secondly I just want to ask you that can I restore data using titanium backup, I am a big fan of titanium backup I juggle the rom once in a while and it came handy, can I still use titanium...

You can surely backup with Titanium. As for restoring, you'd have to make sure zdata is enabled *first*, *then* restore your data.

Where is x86 libs ?

Haven't been able to do it yet. Building all the dependencies takes a long time, and I don't have an X86 device to test it on ATM.

Introduction

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DATA LOSS!! Do NOT use this on apps with sensitive data!! If it makes your phone light on fire, you can't complain.

This app only works on ARM (and likely ARM64) devices!

zdata compresses the data used by apps to make it take less space. It's built on FUSE + fusecompress and requires a rooted device.

Features

Reduces the space used by your apps.
Oh, did I mention it reduces the space used by your apps?
Select the app you want to compress.
Hope it works!


Gotchas

When you boot up your phone, make sure you wait for zdata to mount the app data before trying to use the app.

It should work, but I haven't tested it. That being said, as far as I know, they shouldn't *not* work unless O flat-out doesn't come with FUSE support... (In which case I'm mostly screwed, and you'd need a custom kernel.)
Ok, thanks for the info, I will try with Facebook to see what happens, I will keep you informed.

Great work Dev.
Working on miui 9
Just pointing out something..
1. Apps list loading taking considerable time.

    Introduction

    I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DATA LOSS!! Do NOT use this on apps with sensitive data!! If it makes your phone light on fire, you can't complain.

    This app only works on Android 5.0+ devices with ARM (and likely ARM64) processors!

    zdata compresses the data used by apps to make it take less space. It's built on FUSE + fusecompress and requires a rooted device.

    Features

    • Reduces the space used by your apps.
    • Also, it reduces the space used by your apps.
    • Oh, did I mention it reduces the space used by your apps?
    • Sorry, I'm just trying to follow the XDA template.

    Usage

    • Select the app you want to compress.
    • Hit Go ahead!.
    • Hope it works!

    Gotchas

    • When you boot up your phone, make sure you wait for zdata to mount the app data before trying to use the app.
    • Make sure you disable zdata before uninstalling an app.
    • zdata doesn't always have a major effect, if it has an effect at all. For instance, with KHUx, it barely compressed anything, but for SAO: MD, the app usage went down from 174 MB to 138 MB.

    Changelog

    Code:
    v0.2.0 - 12/10/17: Add an app statistics screen, support Android 5.0 and 6.0.
    v0.1.3 - 08/18/17: Fix X86 APKs and don't assume Busybox's chmod and stat are available.
    v0.1.2 - 08/16/17: Fix running under LineageOS, better logging if android_app_info fails, and experimental X86 support.
    v0.1.1 - 08/14/17: Fix an incredibly bad bug where app data would get cleared on reboot!
    v0.1 - 08/12/17: Initial version. What did you expect?

    I'm proud to announce version 0.2!!! This release contains Android 5.0 and 6.0 support, largely thanks to GitHub user RandomTypek, who kept testing the APKs I created over and over again.

    This version also contains a screen showing compression statistics for your apps! This is also the very first release to go on the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.refi64.zdata.app
    6
    First off: I have just released a very important bugfix that prevents potential data loss on reboot! Make sure to download it ASAP, and then make sure you re-open the zdata app so that the internal scripts get updated!!

    Just released 0.1.3! This is a minor upgrade that mostly just has fixes for devices without stat or Busybox installed.
