    I noticed the app "twonky sever" isn't in my app menu anymore and I dont recall uninstalling it. I tried to re install the app and it says I have insufficient storage space? I have android version "2.1-update1" I brought myself back to 2.1 from froyo and gave myself root access. I DO have root access, thats a definite. But I always thought if you root your phone this kind of problem wouldn't happen? Do I need to take another step to allow more space to be used for apps? Somebody please help!

    Go to Settings>SD card and phone storage settings

    How much available space is showing for both the SD card and Internal Phone Storage?

    well i uninstalled a few soundboards and now have 130 or so MB of internal storage after i reinstalled twonky server.

    i know on froyo you have the option to move apps to SD card. but i dont think theres any way to do such a thing on 2.1?? hopefully an OTA update for 2.2 comes soon

    Root doesn't mean that you suddenly have infinite space... Space is still a very real limitation, root or not.

    *For apps that support it.

    ooh. and I understand you dont suddenly get infinite space. I just thought i saw somewhere that a certain % of space on your phone could be used for apps and once you root all of the space on the phone. idk what i was seeing.
