PreCentral: Fix "Not Enough Storage to Download" error (homebrew)

1 post in this topic

not enough storageHave you ever tried downloading an app from the App Catalog, only to get a "Not Enough Storage to Download" error, despite checking to make sure you had plenty of storage space on the device?  Although the error message suggests clearing space on your drive by deleting music or photos, this will not help the issue if you already had enough space for the app. As it turns out, there is a bug that sometimes occurs if your /var/luna/data/downloadhistory.db gets too large, causing one of the internal drive partitions to get full. Luckily, a simple fix for this was found in our webOS Nation forums, where just need to delete that file with some simple homebrew magic.

The easiest way to fix this is by using the Internalz Pro homebrew app.  To delete that file:

  1. Open Internalz Pro
  2. Navigate to the /var/luna/data folder
  3. Find the downloadhistory.db file. Tap on it and select "Delete" and then confirm the deletion in the pop-up dialog. Alternatively, you can also swipe-to-delete the file as well and then confirm that deletion
  4. Reboot your device

Once rebooted, you should be able to install apps again. If you are still getting the error, make sure that check that you do in fact have enough storage space on your device

Thanks to @Pre2Ries on Twitter for identifying our webOS Nation Forum thread with this tip
