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

    (Starting a new thread on this, last thread went fairly off-topic, though not in a bad way).

    Hi all,

    Wanted to ask a favor of any Incredible users. This phone is a bit different from other devices, in that it has INTERNAL storage memory rather than just an SD card.

    If you have one, please try the following:

    ========================

    Grab a terminal emulator app from the market and run it. Jack Palevich's "Android Terminal Emulator" is probably the best free option. Open the app.

    Type "df" without the quotes and press enter.

    Type "mount" without the quotes and press enter.

    Press the menu key, then "email to". Either email it to yourself and post it here, or just email it to android@nextapp.com.

    ========================

    If possible try it with and without an SD card in the phone. (No worries if this is inconvenient/annoying/too much trouble).

    What I'm trying to figure out is where the Droid Incredible mounts the internal storage. The Android APi to retrieve this information is designed specifically for phones that use SD cards for user storage, so there's really no definition as to how the internal storage is accessed. I've asked this on stackoverflow and #android-dev in IRC, without a definitive answer for the Droid Incredible.

    Additional note to any developers reading this...it's a BAD idea to spec a path to storage in any case...still would recommend using android.os.Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory ()

    Thanks for any help, really appreciate it!

    Thanks!

    In the first post I take it *NO* storage is available on the phone?

    Looks like /emmc is the storage. I wonder if there's a "symlink" back to the /sdcard dir inside that /emmc directory.

    Planning on running over to a Verizon store today as well....hopefully they have these out on display.

    I have about 5gb free of internal storage, but my sd card is almost full. Naturally, I took it out on the second post ;)

    And you are right, /emmc is the storage. Let me see what all is in it, hidden wise.

    The only hidden directories are for footprints.
