Dealing with an “insufficient storage available” error message on sgs II smartphone

My Samsung Galaxy S II phone has terrified me to the death pulling out for almost any application update an error message like “Insufficient storage available”
Luckily for me I have found a way to get rid of this, by applying the following procedure:

  • Open the Phone application and switch to Keypad
  • Dial *#9900# This will lead you to the SysDump application
  • On the screen that appears, click on the button labelled “Delete dumpstate/logcat” (which should be the second item in the list)

By doing this I was able to get back more than one gigabyte of system storage!
Looks like some smartphone models are in a heavy need of a logrotate application:)
