You want to install your favourite app but find that your phone is just out of space. You try installing all the chinese cleaner apps but none work.
To clear the space used for storing temporary files a.k.a Cache, you can use a recovery loaded onto your android device.
This recovery is similar to the BIOS on a laptop or a computer.
In this instructable, I will be using Carliv Touch Recovery v2.7.
You can find unique instructions for installing CTR on your device.


I will not take any responsibility of bricking/wasting your phone, so make sure you know the basics and make a complete backup of your phone.
