What is the /cache partition?
Wednesday 08th of August 2012
What purpose does the /cache partition in Android serve? Are there any cases where clearing the /cache partition could result in lost data?

Friday 22nd of July 2011
Hi all,Just been setting up my new lg optimus 3D (i haven't rooted it or done anything 'dodgy' with it, just installed astro from the market and imported my contacts from an external sd card).When i put my sim in a software update came up in the notification bar, so i updated and once it reset it's gone to the android system recovery <3e> screen, the options are:reboot system nowwipe data/factory resetwipe cache partitionwipe cache partition and package recoverywipe nv dynamic partitionWhen i reboot it just comes back to the same screen, I haven't tried any others as i don't want to factory reset as it's taken me a little while to get this far. any ideas what the best option is? If i don't hear back soon i'll just factory reset it and report back but if you know what even happened that would be great. My network is Orange in the UK,Thanks
I'm stuck at Android System Recovery. Now What
Saturday 19th of November 2011
Please Help. I was stuck at the M. I tried to flash CM7 to my phone and now it is stuck. I can get it to the triangle with the ! but then what can I do to fix it? When I use the volume buttons, I get options for Android system recovery, but I don't know which option to select or how to select it. This is a rooted Droid 2 previously running GB. Choices: Reboot System Now, Apply update from sdcard (I did save CM7 nightly update 139 to my sd card), wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition. Which and how would I select it? Then what will I need to do? Is there a link to some directions anywhere? Thanks for any help you can provide.
Android System Recovery <3e> restore factory
Sunday 11th of March 2012
Hello,I am new to rooting. I rooted my Sprint Epic 4G Touch. Now I have exclamation point on turning on, and the wifi does not work. I want to restore to factory. Even if I knew what I was doing, I can not enter download mode. When I try, I get "Android System Recovery <3e>." The options are:reboot system nowapply update from SD cardwipe data/factory resetwipe cache partition I have tried all 4 options. No good results. I attempted update from SD card, but don't know what a correct update is. The dream would be for me to regain control of this device, be able to root (and unroot for warranty purposes), make the wifi work, get rid of yellow exclamation point, and be able to reprogram annoying headset button defaults in this device. Please help. I have wasted a good bit of a Sunday bricking my phone, and would love to unbrick.Thx

Reboot system now.2. Apply update.3. Wipe data/Factory reset. (So I think there is some recovery partition so I don't need recovery on SD)4. Wipe cache partition.5. Wipe media partition.6. Set efuse item (Don't now for what is it).Thanks in advance for answer.
VERIZON Only - Partition Cache Clear Failure
Friday 26th of July 2013
Hey Guys,Recently I have tried to clear partition cache through the android menu (Volume Up + Home Key + Power Button), but what I found is upon menu boot up the android robot falls and reports "No Command" and flashes "Error". Then when selecting wipe cache partition, the robot falls and reports "Error" then automatically reboots. This has happened on 2 devices (My original device and my replacement device). Verizon replaced the device because that error is abnormal (you don't say), additionally the tech rep said that they never step through the wipe partition cache (actually he admitted he didn't even know what it was), so they would never identify an issue. Anyways, Verizon called Samsung for me then conferences me in; after stating the problem Samsung replies they have not seen this on any of the other carrier devices and they have walked customers of T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint through a wipe partition cache exercise without error. Samsung said I was the first to report this issue. (Interesting I am the first to report this issue but have it on 2
(SOS) LG Optimus Q L55c Boots into CWM-Based Recovery no matter what I do.
Wednesday 16th of October 2013
First I'm new to the forums I'm also new to this Optimus Q so far I am enjoying both of them, OK I still can't figure this out, I've tried all kinds of Android forums and this is the first Q model based forum I've come across, the problem is I can't get it to do anything but boot into a CWM-Based Recovery,( I had flashed a rom to it and it was working till a few days later when it died and I turned it back on) if it is mounted as a storage device there are no files on the phone. The following are steps I have taken to attempt to fix it;-First in CWM-Based Recovery I selected the "wipe data/factory reset", "wipe cache partition", "wipe dalvik cache", "format system".-On my PC I placed the Striped_Q_Modv1.0 in the same directory as C:Program Files (x86)Minimal ADB and Fastboot as instructed-I ran Fastboot(in Administrator) on my PC with my LG Optimus Q plugged in with the proper USB cable and typed the following commands1.adb reboot bootloader* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 **daemon started successfully*2.Then it restarted my

S5 went to android system recovery after I clicked install now on a system update. Now what?!
Friday 03rd of April 2015
I got a message that looked exactly like the update screen for the lollipop update on my s5 so I clicked on learn more. Since it kind of doesn't let you not update I clicked to install now. My Galaxy S5 went to the Samsung power on/off screen and then went to sndroid system recovery screen where my choices involve things like rebooting the system now, applying update from ADB, apply update from external storage, apply update from cache, wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition, reboot to bootloader, power down, view recovery logs, enable cp logging, disable cp logging. I don't know what happened or what to click?!?! My phone is my alarm in the morning... but I am terrified I just got a virus. I don't remember what the update said it was though it was a bunch of letters and numbers (eek!) vs something like "android lollipop 5.0" I did the lollipop update when it came out and that wasn't fun, but it didn't direct me to this screen. I've never seen this screen on my galaxy. Granted, I've only had any android device since september or so.
Why is my Nexus 6 lagging & stuttering?
Thursday 18th of June 2015
I recently picked up a Nexus 6 (64 GB) at my local T-Mobile store. After a few days of use I noticed a defect on the camera like a black spot. It also lagged and stuttered a bit too. I returned it to T-Mobile and was replaced with a brand new Nexus 6. The new one however has lag & stuttering too. This irritates me because of the specs it has and also I've seen no lag on reviewers' Nexus 6 on Youtube. I am updated to the latest android version which is 5.1.1 at the moment. I did every possible troubleshooting method( reboot, wiping cache partition/app cache/system cache, etc. I even did a factory reset and still has the lag & stuttering. It's not a serious/extreme lag but it still irritates me when I swipe or play a few games. I don't think it's an app because I underwent safe mode and still had the problem. What could be the problem? Could it be that Android L is still not fully polished or does the Nexus 6 lag normally. I am not rooting and will stay with my stock android launcher. Anyone else with a Nexus 6 with lag/stutters?
