My Jolla is running out of space and I noticed that when I remove an app the data files stay in the phone. I have tested so many apps that I have like 2gB s worth of datafiles of apps that I don't even have anymore.

In terminal, run command: "chmod -r 777 /data/data" to give the folder and its files all permissions. Also "chmod -r u+w /data/data" should be enough if you don't want to add all permissions. Adds write permission to user.

To remove the android app data, you could download an android file manager. There are other posts that answer the terminal commands for this regarding native apps (after enabling developer mode) I'll post them if I find them
