How to increase memory for applications on your Freelander I30

Hey guys, some of you may have experienced: “Error downloading …. There is insufficient space on device. While trying to download application from google play.

MTK powered android devices with 4gb/8gb usually have their internal ROM partitioned so that you have only 1gb space for your applications.

Disclaimer: Please backup all your data, contacts, messages, applications and stuff as in the process all will be lost. Rooting your device voids warranty.
