I seem to always be out of space in /data. Kind of a rant, but maybe somebody has a suggestion.
With CM5 and earlier, apps2sd fixed the lack of space by just mapping an extra partition on the SD card into /data, giving you as much space as you want, if I understand it correctly. CM6 and other Froyo ROMs use the official android SD card installs. They use some kind of DRM encryption to help prevent piracy, I suppose. Problem is - they don't actually copy the whole app to the SD card!
Flash is 13MB (8MB when installed to SD)
Skype is 14MB (5MB)
RockPlayer is 7MB (4MB)
Tango is 14MB (9.3MB)
The Firefox app that just got released tried to install 30MB - filled up /data completely and everything started crashing!
Has anyone tried to go back to the old way of apps2sd? Or found another way to save space? It seems like every time I find a new and exciting app, I have to delete a few things to make space. Which is annoying since I have a 32GB card sitting there.
