How I solved Android's "Insufficient Storage Available" error on my Samsung Galaxy SIII.

Having trouble installing or updating an app because your phone keeps giving you the "Insufficient storage available" error? Does your phone have enough internal memory? Have you searched the internet without ever finding a solution? If you've answered yes to all of these questions then I might be able to help you.

I cannot tell you how much time I've spent looking for a solution to this error, but it has been frustrating not being able to solve it for a very long time, until now. I've tried clearing the cache to Google Playstore, downloaded, installed and ran countless cache cleaner apps. Nothing worked. Then I stumbled on something someone wrote on a forum. Their instructions were to simply delete problematic app's odex file. It said while using a proper file explorer to go to:

System Root > data > app

Then delete the odex file. But that didn't work for me because I had uninstalled the apps that couldn't be updated, so the odex files were not there.

So I decided to go explore some folders in The System Root. Then I found the folder:

System Root > data > app-lib

In that folder I found folders with the names of my problematic apps (eg: " &" ) so for the fun of it I decided to delete the folders with those apps names on them , since I had nothing to lose. The apps were non functional anyways. And that basically did it.

In simple terms, I got lucky by making an educated guess.

Try it it might work for you!

Adult ADHD-I?

So, I may have adult ADHD-I, as per some online test. Awesome! (Obvious sarcasm)... Obviously I have to get myself checked out by a real specialist, but reading about the symptoms really does shed some light about the way I've been feeling all this time about myself... It's not the "Hyperactivity" type but the "Inattentive" type problem apparently...

Have I ever thought about having it? Truthfully, yes... Part of me wants to do something about it, part of me just wants to ignore it and hope that it will go away. Except that it never goes away... My family has mentioned it to me before, since we found out that two of my cousins have it. But it's so embarrassing...

Told K. about it yesterday, told her to check out the symptoms and to see which ones apply to me and she confirmed that most of them do. I'm not really sure how she feels about it, but she says that there's not much to do about it, that I have to learn to live with it. She's scared that if I take medication and she takes her medication, we might have problems conceiving later on... We haven't broached the subject since then.

I personally think that if I can get part of myself back with some kind of medication, some control over my thought process that it would be all worth the drug's side effect (Although I don't know if there is any). It might not change me completely, but just help, that is all I would need. I don't know what to do...

I am just riddled with these little personal problems, how lucky!

Atychiphobia (from the Greek phóbos, meaning "fear" or "morbid fear" and atyches meaning "unfortunate")[1] is the abnormal, unwarranted, and persistent fear of failure.[2] As with many phobias, atychiphobia often leads to a constricted lifestyle,[3] and is particularly devastating for its effects on a person’s willingness to attempt certain activities.

A person afflicted with atychiphobia considers the possibility of failure so intense that they choose not to take the risk. Oftentimes this person will subconsciously undermine their own efforts so that they no longer have to continue to try.[4] Because effort is proportionate to the achievement of personal goals and fulfillment, this unwillingness to try that arises from the perceived inequality between the possibilities of success and failure holds the atychiphobic back from a life of meaning and the realization of potential.

I don't know why I fear it, but it's ruining me. Too many thoughts give me a headache. I hate this feeling...

  1. The feeling of being upset or annoyed, esp. because of inability to change or achieve something.
  2. An event or circumstance that causes one to have such a feeling.

... is what I feel. I can't seem to get rid of this mind numbness, lack of motivation. Is this what this world has turned people to or maybe just me. I look around me and find that all those young ones nowadays are all apathetic to their surrounding. Am I turning out like that as well or have all already changed.
