Android Market Download Storage Problem | Samsung Vibrant with Cyanogenmod 7.1market vibrant samsung insufficient error downloading space
Posted 02 November 2011 - 07:05 PM
I have a Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant (Tmobile US) and I modded it with Cyanogenmod 184.108.40.206 and everything works great, except trying to download large(ish) apps from the market. Smaller apps download and install fine (few MB). But when I try to download the "Wind-up Knight" game for example, it says "Error downloading 'Wind-up Knight'. There is insufficient space on the device." That game is 41.64MB. My storage is almost completely empty. I upped my internal storage partition to 4GB form the default 2GB just to test but it didn't help. So my storage looks like:
Total Space 10.84GB
Total space 3.75GB
ADDITIONAL STORAGE (/mnt/emmc)
Total Space 1.84GB
When I first installed CM7 mod, I cleared cache and then installed mod. I thought maybe I didn't clear everything right so I went back and formatted everything except BOOT and SYSTEM and reinstalled CM7 mod. And I still get this error, even when it's the only app I'm trying to install right after clean format and mod.
I saw in another older thread on CM nightlies someone had mentioned deleting the marketcache and moving it to the emmc partition for more storage space. But all my partitions are pretty much completely empty so there should be plenty of space. I also saw solutions to clear cache or dalvik cache so I've tried clearing all cache I could find including those two.
I'm not sure if this is a CM mod problem, a Vibrant specific problem, or an Android problem so hopefully I'm not posting in the wrong spot. Any help tracking down a solution would be appreciated.

mount -w -o remount /system
echo dalvik.vm.dexopt-data-only=1 >> /system/build.prop
Then reboot to recovery, clear cache and dalvik, and boot phone normally (it will take longer than normal).
To confirm open terminal and run
It will show you all your mounts, total space, used space, etc.
Or download freespace from the market.

The only issue my phone is having is the same one that jpmanchester described. I have a ton of free space on my phone and over 4.5 gb on the SD card. When i first installed the marked package onto my phone it asked me to download all the apps i had before and i let it do that over night cause i thought it would take forever (40+ apps). in the morning i noticed that almost none of them actually downloaded and installed. so after going back into the marked place i tried it again and it game me the error message saying that i do not have enough room on my phone or sd card.
the phone shows all the available storage internally and externally available. I tried the second fix iXNyNe posted and when i type in the second line "echo dalvik.vm.dexopt-data-only=1 >> /system/build.prop" it tells me that the file is read only....
Am I missing something? I did activate su and I thought thats all i needed to do... I would appreciate any help I could get.
Thank you and keep up the good work!!!
