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

Hi to all,I have DVB-T tuner GoClever Android BOX 500, can I install without any problems the latest (I think) firmware: 20120621_Android_ICS-ATV-108-c03ref.zip ?I checked my device with "DeviceChecker.apk" and it showed that I have:MBX DVBT reference board (c03ref)Board: MBXName: c03refDevice: c03refBoard: c03refMy current firmware is 2.3.4.There is no reset button in my box, but I figured out how to boot up "Android system recovery utility" and there are some options like:1. 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.
Android Forums - View Single Post - How to activate dt A2SD on MIUI?
Thursday 08th of November 2012
I'm simply not sure if I have successfully activated the dark tremor A2SD feature on my MIUI 2.10.12 Jelly Bean v2.7 ROM (on HTC Desire). If I did, then something ain't working, because every time I d/l something, I run out of internal storage space (got 1.3gb free on the SD card). I tried "a2sd install" in adb shell (aka terminal emulator), I get: "Found block device: /dev/block/mmcblk0p2Removing flag a2sdRemoving flag ad2sdRemoving flag dc2sdSetting flag a2sd/system/bin/a2sd: line 74: /sd-ext/.a2sd: Read only file systemchmod: /system/bin/a2sd: No such file or directory**Would you also like to move DALVIK-CACHE?"**(I checked and a file called "a2sd" does exist in this folder)In Android Terminal Emulator app I tried "a2sd checkext" in order to determine for certain that I have the SD card partitioned (its been a long time since I played with this...), and what size/type of partition it is. Says:"Found block device: /dev/block/mmcblk0p2/sd-ext is mountedForcing check on next boot"But it just reboots the phone?! I have no idea what res
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
TWO Android systems draining battery??
Saturday 23rd of August 2014
Good day to you all, Recently after a small Android update (still having version 4.4.2) I noticed the battery was draining faster than it used to. Before that, it was consuming roughly 1% per hour in idle. This has changed now to 3-5% per hour. Looking at the battery info I noticed the Android system was the biggest batterysucker here. Not only that, there are even TWO Android systems shown and I began to think there's something wrong here Also looking at the wakelocks shows that my phone is barely able to get into sleepmode. Before posting this thread I have literally tried every option to see if it could lessen the battery consumption: - Disabled Google location reporting services - Disabled GPS - Disabled Google sync - Disable Wifi when in Sleep mode - I don't use Google Now so it's disabled - Widen the Facebook refresh intervals to 4 hours - Wiped the cache partition None of the above worked and I started to think that the second Android system here might be the cause. Should there be a second Android system consuming battery? What could be the problem here??
