    Hi,

    I installed WebOS (doctored it) 3.0.4. Just went into "Device Info" tab and noticed that "Available Space" = 12.5 GB on 16GB TP. Is that normal?

    WebOS 3.0.4 is 3.5GB?

    thx

    It does take up more room than 3.0.2. Not sure how much more, but I noticed my available space dropped after installation.

    Does anyone else think the battery drains faster with 3.0.4?

    I noticed the same. I went from 61% to 45% overnight, a loss of 16%. Usually I only lose 5% or so max overnight.

    Regarding battery issues, I will check when I get home. I updated my 16gb and my wifes 32gb last night.

    But maybe if you are patched up, the patches are no longer working until they are updated? Also check your Wifi prefs and everything else so that your settings remained the same. (wife sleeps when tablet sleeps, manual sync, etc)

    One of the problems could be that operating systems take up space on the device, maybe a gig or 2. One thing that would take up space are the pre installed apps taking up room. But even with all of those it couldn't be over 2.5 Gb, so it must be HUGE, or something I'm not thinking of.

    Pre 2 2.2.4

    The initial OS installation is about 3 gigs with all preinstalled apps and what not.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Dang... That sounds like an old "Windows" update... 3.5GB that's a huge chunk. But I guess we always have our free "Box". Wow.... 3.5GB....

    You are misunderstanding... the update itself isn't 3.5 gigs. That is the totality of the complete OS and all default applications, plus any automatically downloaded applications from your profile and other data that syncs from synergy accounts.

    Your 16GB Touchpad only has 14.9GB or so to begin with (this is due to how computers read gigabytes, 16,000,000,000 bytes = 14.9 gigabytes), so if you have 12.5 that means webOS is taking 2.4GB.

    3.0.2 took up a similar amount of space.

    Ahhh thanks for the info. that clears some confusion.

    p.s. last time I checked, my webos 3.0.2 showed me 13.5GB available space.

    Just to clarify the packaged 3.0.4 OTA was only 50ish megs. Of course that is using some form of compression.

    Before update I was left with exactly 23GB. After update it as 21.5 gb. So 1.5 gigs of extra space is what the 3.04 took

    No problem, been a lot of confusion about OS size with all the folks that had CM7 or Linux partitions prior to the OTA and them losing visualization of a partition that is still taking up actual space.

    Lets say 230-is mb is the +/- few mbs...but I am down by 1GB from 3.0.2 before doctor to after doctor of 3.0.4. I thought there was some temp data being saved every time I doctor the device...just wanted to know if others have same space available after doctor with no apps/patches installed. Also, I had no other apps while I was using 3.0.2 so no app was brought over from my old account. My TP hasn't met CM7 as of yet.
