I bought a Teclast P98 3G 9.6" tablet - it comes with 32GB internal memory but the memory has been partitioned by the manufacturer (2GB for apps / 24GB for media - the rest is the Android OS) - that means I can only use approx 2GB internal memory for apps - a few apps later and it's full. The remaining internal memory can only be used as storage for media.

I've been told I need to root the device & then change the internal memory partition, Any guides / thoughts on how to do this? Thanks in advance.

You could add an external Micro SdCard - Kit Kat should allow you to install Apps to one. If you upgraded it to Lollipop you may - just may -- get an opportunity to choose your own partitioning, or even none.

Thanks for your reply. The device comes with lollipop installed - and whilst some apps (and some parts of apps) can be move to the SD card, most apps remain on the internal memory and it gets full really quickly.

There is an App that can help with installing Apps to the SdCard but even its own advertising warns you things can go wrong.

Start off by going into Settings>More and tap About Device seven times to invoke Developer Options. You'll see a message telling you're now a developer. Go into that menu and tick USB Debugging which means it can be visible to a Windows system.

Then you can root the device but that could invalidate your Warranty and possibly break some terms of the contract with your service provider. KingoRoot not Kingroot) is the best in my view and you download that into a Windows system and work it as a exe file once the device is connected through USB.

Once rooted, find APP2SD in the Play Store and read what it has to say about the possibilities of it all going wrong. I've used it twice but the decision is yours.
