1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    This is standard for storage devices. Flash media, hard drives, ect always have less usable space than their specifactions. Generally this loss is about 10%. A 500gb hard drive for instance will only have about 465gb of usable space.

    Basically, he is wondering if some of the OS is written onto the SD Card itself, not on the phone.

    Technically, no... The OS shouldn't be 'rooted' on the SD card.
