    Yeah running jrummys .7 stock with the nextheme over the top. Runs awesome. I knew the full system/app folder wouldn't affect speed but I wanted some free space to play with.

    yeah i figured that 5 row launcher takes up a hella lotta space and when you install over cyanogen it kinda writes 2 files and you end up running outta space to theme with

    Here is my question, I have 27.6 MB left in my system app folder and do not plan to add anything else to it. If anything I will pull out the launcher2 which is 5MB and push Helix1 as my system launcher whick will give me about 30MB in my system app file
    What I am wondering is if I push Google Earth in as a system app (it is 22MB) to clear up some space in my internal memory and only have 7 or 8mb in my system app folder is this going to slow my system down?

    Thanks in advance

    No slowdowns you could have 0 space left in system and your phone wouldn't care. The system partition by default is read only, meaning nothing gets written there. Cache, data, sdcard, and other places are where the action takes place. I had it down to under 1mb left and noticed no performance difference.

    Anytime I move the google earth.apk from my data app file to my system app file using root explorer it uninstalls the google earth.apk and when I reinstall it from the system app file it gets installed as a data app and not a system app

    Does anyone know the su command to move something from the data app file to the system app file or am I just not doing something right

    Mine already comes pretty packed but you should have atleast 5mb in system. The nex theme adds a whole bunch of ringtones which takes up a lot of space.

    I figured it out, it is the same as if you were to push something using terminal from your sdcard to the system/app but instead of specifying "sdcard" you replace that with data/app

    I love speaking Android with myself
