New Low Storage Notification Fix for Galaxy S I9000

Many Android phones have random and silly bugs—nothing serious, mind you, but things that can often be annoying. One such bug is the receiving a low storage warning when you have plenty of storage space left. While it may seem like a minor inconvenience, your Android device believing it has no space left can prevent you from doing a lot of things such as downloading new apps from the Google Play Store. This is a problem that has apparently plagued Samsung Galaxy S I9000 users for awhile. Now, there’s a fix.

While the issue has been resolved in the past, this particular mod is aimed at devices running CyanogenMod. This is because CM utilizes a small, but fast flash chip to store data in /datadata. However, this partition is just 170MB in size. For many users, this is no big thing, but for those who use a lot of apps, the dreaded low notification is quite the unwelcome guest.

This is where XDA Senior Member Wendigogo comes in, bringing a fix that alleviates the problems associated with the low storage notification. The fix gives users control over where applications store their cache. For larger applications that use a lot of space, you can move it to the standard /data partition and leave the other apps where they were. This eases the burden of the tiny partition somewhat, and should stave off the low storage issue for awhile.

PhotoMath: A Math Beginner’s Dream App

To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
