Can I delete old trichrome library under /data/app?



  • I have around 50 trichrome library folders in /data/app using around 3 gb.

    What varies is the alphanumeric string after the package name denoting version: com.google.android.trichromelibrary_410408383-VgzblS0EY8swXcjTqN6reQ==

    Can I delete all but most recent to clean my system and regain some space?

    Or is it like WinSxS folder in Windows where all revisions of the same dll are stored for different programs to use?



  • I deleted all but last using rm -r com.google.android.trichromelibrary_41*(then 42, 43, 44...) in /data/app/, /data/data/, /data/user_de/0/, /data/misc/profiles, /data/system/package_cache, working fine, 3 gb freed.

    Should be safe to issue the rm command of above straight in /data just for convenience.

    Then you should purge your /data/system/packages.xml file from orphaned entries as explained here: https://android.stackexchange.com/questions/242972/purge-data-system-packages-xml-from-manually-deleted-packages
