How to fix Insufficient storage available error in Android

Today I came accross with a strange error while downloading an app from Google play on my rooted Samsung Galaxy SII. It said ‘Insufficient storage available‘ while I had over 6GB of free space. I rebooted my device, cleared Google Play’s cache but none of that worked.

Luckily, I found a fix for this problem in lucky patcher. Lucky patcher is actually a third party app to crack/patch paid Google play apps. So here’s how you can fix this error. Your device must be rooted to be able to use lucky patcher.

    Try to clear data from the play store in the application manager. If that doesn’t work, clear it again along with Google services framework. You’ll need to sign in to your Google account again.
    See if that works, did for me on my galaxy player 5.0

    The error must be a rooted thing. I had lucky patcher on my phone and your advice was spot on. TY

    I forgot to reboot but worked anyway.

    I was in the 4th step and in the “Remove fixes and backups”, then there was an error saying “No root access found!…..” What do I do now?

    Unfortunately lucky did not work for me on my t mobile galaxy s4. I resolved this issue today thank god by doing the following. Follow this and let me know if it works for you.
    First step is go into a file explorer with root access. Second in the root directory click on data, once in the data folder click on app-lib folder. Last step is scroll down to the data folder for the app you are trying to update or install and delete it. Thrn go into the market and try to install. It worked for me n I hope it does for you.

      Worked for me! Thank you SO much for this post. I was going insane trying to fix this error. I had downloaded quite a few apps trying to get this fixed. I was on the verge of wiping my HTC One and starting from scratch. Thanks again!
