Idea blade is coming with a ROM of 256 MB and user space will be nearly 60 MB. Once you start installing applications or updating it free memory will be decreased. Here are some useful ideas to free up your ROM.
Many pre-installed applications get updates via Google Play. Once you update these applications it is not ORIGINALLY updating the app but installing a newer version which in turn eat your internal memory. That is why when yo reset your system, your applications are able to return to original version.
There is an application called Apps2Rom is available to download. It helps to check if your device has duplicated applications. i.e., original application in ROM and its updated version. Your phone should be rooted to use this application. Once you open this app, you can see the list of applications in it. If any application is duplicated, (this can be identified by looking into the dot near the application. If you see two green dots near any application it means it is duplicated) you can replace your old version with latest one. By doing is you are uninstalling factory installed application and installing a fresher version. Further updates to this version will not create any duplicates.
Also, if your phone is rooted, you can try uninstalling your factory installed applications such as games, facebook,twitter,youtube,opera mini etc. This can save a lot of space. Many applications such as Root Uninstall and Root uninstaller etc, are available in Google Play for download. Try these.
These techniques are not limited to Idea Blade and can be tried in all supported Android devices.
Cyanogenmod, the popular android based firmware developing community, has released their latest version. This version, 7.2 RC1 is based upon Google’s Android release 2.3.7 and is the final release on 7.x series. Cyanogenmod official blog reports it has added a couple of backported features and fixes from Android 4.0, Icecream sandwitch. One of the major bug fix it claims is about SD card ringtones. Its earlier versions sufered from misteriously vanishing ringtones from SD card.
Cyanogenmod added support for nealy 20 new devices adding a sum of 70 in supported devices list! I tested it is my idea blade and found working well. Though it is crashing at times, its overall performance is satisfactory. If you are not interested in tesing, do not use this release candidate and install previous stable version.
