What is DiskUsage:
It is a way to find memory hogs on storage card using graphical representation of directories/subdirectories/files proportional to their size on storage card.
If you already use Market version of DiskUsage app you may probably wanted to have access to your system and data partition on your rooted device. That’s exactly the feature I’m currently working on. It works on my own device, but I am looking for wider testing before releasing the update to market. I thought the xda-developers is just right audience for this.
What supposed to work:
- Scan and display directory trees for the system partitions, like /data, /system…
What doesn’t work:
- No integration with root explorer or whatever program people use to display system/hidden directories.
- Can’t delete files on /system, /data or any other storage inaccessible to ordinary apps.
Purpose of this release:
- Find possible differences in ‘su’ implementations in the wild and support them if possible.
- Find out what apps people use to explore the system partition. Currently I use ‘Astro’, but there is no standard way AFAIK to open installed filemanager.
Please send you comments, stacktraces of errors as personal messages, what filemanagers you use to explore system and data. Thanks.
3.0alpha2: slightly better diagnostics and finding ‘su’ and ‘chmod’ binaries.

You’ll need to have a deodexed system to use this stock Gingerbread keyboard on your Atrix. It is taken from the Nexus S ROM and is not a themed keyboard. However, the keyboard is tweaked for the Atrix screen resolution, and has bigger letters on the keys. Additionally, the landscape version provides more space for the input form.
The XDA member has provided full instruction on how to install the modified keyboard – so, for more information and to download the files, head on over to the forum thread.
