PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This past week and this weekend I've finally found the time to enter into the colorful world of custom Android ROMs. After figuring out just how insanely great and awesome ClockWorkMod Recovery is, I set about to figure out what the best Ice Cream Sandwich ROM is for the Galaxy SII. While the answer to that question became clear quite quickly, this answer also gave rise to a whole bunch of other questions.

System storage is separate from user app storage in Android. Thus, it really doesn't matter how "bloated" the Android system install is, as it will not affect the amount of storage for user apps (/system vs. /data partitions).

And, there are various apps available in the Market (Play) that allow you to partition your SDCard and use it as extended storage space for user apps (Link2SD for Xperia devices, for instance). Using these apps is better than the generic "Move to SD"/"App2SD" that comes with Android, as the extra partition is mounted as part of the OS, meaning you don't lose access to your apps when you connect to a PC via USB. ;)
