    Low Space / Memory even after a hard reset

    Hi I recently acquired a Nexus One that I'm having memory issues with. I'm running Gingerbread 2.3.4 (GRJ22). I've tried all sorts of options in erasing / clearing memory. After each of these attempts, it always only shows 13MB free. No extra applications are even installed! I've done the following: * Factory Data Reset * Clear Storage during HBOOT * Wipe data/factory reset during RECOVERY * Wipe cache partition during RECOVERY Any other ideas? I've recently rooted it too.

    bassmadrigal on xda suggested checking the /data partition for bad blocks - have you tried yet, I didn't see a response on xda?

    I can't seem to install terminal thru the marketplace. I think the low memory is preventing any additional application installs. Is that possible? Is there another method to access a shell prompt on the device?

    You can push the app to phone thru adb--I don't know command line though--better at Terminal

    You need to get your apps to sd thru the stock method or wipe all and flash Cyanogen CM7 followed by gapps and Dark Tremor.

    May need to read up on that if you haven't flashed a rom before

    People here or on those threads can help, depending on what you want to do

    I wouldn't even consider switching ROM until you know that your internal memory is stable...

    I'm thinking you'll have to hook your phone up to a PC, and take a look at the partitions. Windows won't be able to see the internal partitions, so you will probably need to go with Linux. If you don't already have a Linux machine, you can run Linux from a live CD or USB stick...

    The numbers are total size, used, available...

    It looks like you are using a lot of your data partition, or at least your phone thinks you are...

    Are you rooted, our is this a stock phone?

    I believe so. I am rooted. The ROM is Gingerbread 2.3.4. I just wiped out all data, cache, and reset the phone. This is what df displays
    # df
    df
    Filesystem Size Used Free Blksize
    /dev 192M 32K 192M 4096
    /mnt/asec 192M 0K 192M 4096
    /mnt/obb 192M 0K 192M 4096
    /system 145M 128M 16M 4096
    /data 196M 183M 12M 4096
    /cache 95M 2M 92M 4096
    /mnt/sdcard 1G 536K 1G 4096
    /mnt/secure/asec 1G 536K 1G 4096

    How do I clear it out?
