    su
    df
    i got this
    export PATH=/data/local/bin:$PATH
    [user@droid] / # export PATH=/data/local/bin:$PATH
    [user@droid] / # su
    [root@droid] / # df

    why is my /system at 84%?
    any enlightenment would be greatly appreciated. :)

    I may have misinterpreted your question, but it looks like that out of the 144MB allocated for the system folder, you have used 121 MB leaving 22 MB. 121 divided by 144 equals 84% used.

    If you go Settings>SD Card and Phone Storage settings, what do you show for available space under Internal Phone Storage?

    exactly. :) but is that installed apps or my rom or something? or is it normal to be that full? i guess i'm wondering this because i can't run metamorph due to low system memory. and my phone is extremely slow and sometimes freezes even though im clocked at 600


    edit: i read over my post and it sounded really dumb. i had to re-word it;)
