Hello All,

 

      I have an LG Tribute running Kit Kat (4.4.2  -  Kernel version 3.4.0+  - Software Version LS660ZV5) and the device is rooted.

 

      One thing that I've hated about Kit Kat is the way it essentially makes the micro SD card a "useless appendage" as far as using it for storage for any system related task.

 

       I do not have many additional apps loaded on the device itself.  I have a third party GPS with a huge amount of map data, but that's entirely stored on the SD card.

 

       For months now I have had a message saying that a system update from software version LS660ZV5 to LS660ZV6 cannot be done because there is not sufficient space. But it also claims the update requires 73MB but I have 294.2MB available in device memory and 16.8GB on the SD Card.

 

       I have tried unrooting (which worked) but that didn't allow the system software update to download.  I've re-rooted since.

 

       Since Android updates virtually never get pushed out I'd really like to apply this one, but am at my wit's end trying to figure out how to accomplish this.

 

        Any advice on how to accomplish this Android system software update would be appreciated.

By the sound of it your internal memory for system and apps is nearly full. Try apps2sd or link2sd app.

Thanks.  I've looked into both apps, briefly, and one or the other will probably do the trick.

 

Another project for the coming weeks!
