Apps storage space issue

Navigator

What if you deleted all the apps you did not want and then turned auto update off? would they still come back after 30 mins?

I tried all the ways. Applications are installed automatically. It will only help to turn off your TV from internet

Bobby, can you confirm that after deleting the e-manual you no longer have space issues with the app updates? I can see that this could be a short term fix, but over time, when additional apps are downloaded, space will once again become an issue.

Who is going to be the first to try this out, must admit i am a bit nervous in case in ruins anything


Interesting, didn't even know that Tizen Studio was publically available. We need to get some decent coders into this thread, maybe they could help us out with a permanent fix!

I totally agree its not ideal, but freeing up 100mb will be a big help and allow a few more apps to be downloaded

I found this solution two weeks ago. At the moment, everything works fine, but after the release of the new firmware version, everything can change. I ordered myself a TV BOX and I hope to get away from this problem forever. Because any smart TV is a very uncomfortable thing. And the TV itself suits me perfectly, what is needed for my PS4 Pro.

Yea, but Sammy probably wont release another firmware for these tvs lol And that's exactly what im going to do if the apps break in the future, i.e run netflix, plex etc from my playstation.

Well i always has 182mb free untill last night, there must have been a round of updates  (some apps had yesterdays date on them as last updated!) and now i have gone down to 159mbs!  I have insalled none of my own apps so the updates have cost me 13mb! When you look at the size of the insalled apps they are so small 400kb etc so i have no idea where this space has gone?

 

I am going to use tony47 method and reset the smart hub and see what that does.  So this should delete everthing and re-install the latest version of apps?

Hi Chris,

 

As the guy on here from Belarus says, most of the 1GB space is being eaten up by the Tizen OS. I don't believe Samsung when they say that there's 4GB installed. There's probably a download cache that's still sitting there after the update as well.

 

Yes, resetting smarthub clears the cache, downloads the latest versions of the built-in apps and deletes the others if you have any. You'll have to re-enter all your login credentials.
