Hello,

 

I've moved your post to Android General forum, as it has nothing to do with rooting. Please tell us what phone model do you have, what memory problems?

 

 

stil can t to update my skype and whatsapp.... just theese app i have in my phone and i can to update it

 

You don't need root privilages to update those apps. Just download and install updates from Google Play. Any error show up when you try to do that?

But root does not work that way. Root = super user privilages, nothing more. So you can install apps using root permissions, but it does not affect in phone memory at all. But now you can try the following solutions:

 

1. Go in your phone to Menu => Settings => Applications => Memory usage and check what applications uses a lot of memory - click on them and choose "clear data" option. That should free some space on your phone memory.

 

2. The second thing you can do - thanks to super user (root) privilages you can now easly uninstall all unwanted apps from your phone and free some memory space.

 

3. The third thing you can do - you can use apps from Google Play (for example App2sd or similar) and move all important apps using a lot of space into your sd card.

You can't remove all apps just like that :) Try now to reboot your phone and check again what apps uses a lot of free space in your phone.

You are talking about RAM space or phone internal memory space? Download from Google Play file manager (for example Total Commander), run it and check how many free space do you have in your phone...

Well, Sony Xperia E dual white paper says that you should have:

 

 

Memory comprises approximately 650 MB of firmware, 750 MB of “Phone memory” for downloaded applications and 2 GB of “Internal storage” for music, pictures, movies and some application data.

 

so i have no idea what uses your memory. You can make backup of all your data and just reflash it with clean firmware using for example Flashtool , then root your phone and uninstall all unwanted apps. But it seems that your problem is solved now:

 

 

Settings > apps > all > album, facebook, instagram, any music/video streaming app > clear data

 

so i will close this thread :)

 

 

That problem has been solved and thread is closed. If you have any other questions, please start a new thread. If you have any complains / opinions / suggestions, you are welcome to send them to Sony.yt Team using Private Message.
