It’s been enough time for developers familiar with how it works Marshmallow and what we can expect from this version of Android. Discoveries that serve to understand the entrails and all the changes that have been made regarding Lollipop. We know the most important thing but today still out important aspects, such as that revealed Chainfire .
The developer known in the Android community for their applications related to root explained in XDA Marshmallow just have free space in the / system folder. What does this mean? Very simple: when you modify files on this plot of memory must be very careful because terminal can block and leave it useless. Be careful but this finding needs a bit more depth and analysis
Less space, more problems for home development
Chainfire has been doing tests on a Nexus 6 Android 6.0 and has found that in the folder / system there are only about 15 MB free . Very little room to make changes to the build.prop for example. This is a problem if for example you want to install Xposed or going to do something more complex changes.
Does this happen in all terminals? It is early to tell. Android 6.0 Marshmallow moment has come to very few devices and this forgetfulness in / system might just be unique to the Nexus 6. Most likely, as indicated Chainfire is that this terminal is not the unique in being affected by such a limitation.
The problem as you can imagine is that the limited space in the partition makes developers have less room to make changes. The good news is that can make room by removing other data so if we’re going to rooting your Android and we will not change the ROM, mejor delete first things to then put other .
The problem facing other applications installed in / system is that we can make the mistake of not empty before or the app in question does not make a preflight to prevent accidents. Chainfire drop that could well try a mere technical or limitation of a way to block home developments. If the latter, we shall soon know but I doubt it’s something intentional
News Chainfire explains that modify the System folder in Marshmallow carries risks was originally published in Engadget Android by Juan Carlos Gonzalez .
