    I've been trying to do some housekeeping on the G2 and I've noticed that there's a lot space being used in the miscellaneous storage. What is this can I clear this stuff? I've already moved my movies, pictures and cleared up some of the cache.

    I noticed this too... I haven't investigated it yet (had G2 less than 24 hours), but it survives a factory reset so I assume its carrier bloatware.

    If it survives a factory reset then that might include the stuff LG keeps stored away on it's own partition. A factory reset only wipes /data (/userdata), /cache, and /storage/emulated/legacy (/sdcard) volumes. Dalvik cache is also wiped but that's in the /data mount to begin with. Everything else stays untouched during a factory reset. For example if you screwed your phone up by pushing a bad apk into /system, then a factory reset won't help ya a damned bit.

    There's a mount called /persist-lg that if memory serves me is actually a separate volume. I haven't used a rooted G2 in some time but I remember that from when I did a lot of dev work on it. It's a good chance that this is your miscellaneous storage but that's just a guess. I haven't researched it at all..

    Yea... I'd have to go with it being your system partition. Like the OS.

    My phone has 32 gigs of storage but the system takes at least 8 permanently.
