    16GB Internal space is it just a hogwash?

    I do not know if this the right place to ask this question but is it me or has other users have noticed as well that Atrix comes with 16GB space and even after installing Custom ROM it still shows just little under 9GB available...
    I noticed it with Cm7, Neutrino and now MIUI. Just curious

    It's the same with ANY computer device....OS and other system functions take up some of the available memory.

    Here is a SS from TBP that gives a pretty good layout for how the phone storage is divided.

    Think of it like this: When you get a hard drive, it's advertised price ***GB or *TB. When in reality, a 1TB hard drive comes out to be 931GB.

    Also, the way mobile OS's work, and the way Android is setup, is that everything is in it's own partition. Placing things in seperate partitions makes the platform MUCH more secure.

    Motorola actually does have 16GB's of onboard NAND, but it's split between several partitions. Namely the /data partition that contains all your 3rd party apps and configurations, /efs that contains your IMEI and radio configuration, /cache that contains all your cached app and OS information, the internal SD storage, and the /system partition. There are also several other smaller partitions for things like recovery and the kernel.

    I have much experience with unlocked bootloaders and custom ROMs on the original ATRIX. I will do my best to hold your hand through any problem, small or large, on any phone. Please open up a thread in the help section (or Rescue Squad section if your phone is in dire need) or PM me. I don't bite
