I am at the end of my rope with this problem. I hope someone can help.

None of my Google-related apps including gmail will run and I am getting this error:

Google play services error....insufficient storage when trying to update it. I have a nearly empty
phone with over 1GB of space. Only 4 apps, all caches cleared. All of the options to change, clear,
deactivate, etc,.....for play services are blacked out so I can't do that.

How can I fix this? Android v 4.0.4

Thanks.

What phone? How much storage is your phone? 4gb?

No pictures/videos etc?

Sounds like the phone is really old and unable to be updated further.

Where are you looking that it tells you that you have 1GB left?

Do you know how to screenshot?

I tried to fix this problem for several weeks and then got fed up yesterday and now have another disaster to deal with - a much bigger disaster that I need help with.

Despite being shown massive empty space on the apps and total internal storage, I kept getting the lack of storage error. So one by one, I deleted all of the FOUR apps I had and that made no difference. This phone has never had an SD car inside and never needed one and I never had any plans on installing one. It is a Kyocera Event.

Anyway, yesterday I was playing around trying to find ways to clear more storage and one of the options was erase SD card. Well there is no SD card so I wasn't worried about losing my 100+/ year's worth of every photo I have ever taken which is the only really important and priceless thing I have the phone for. So I hit clear and all my photos were deleted from internal storage.

I have spent the last 24 hours trying to find out how I can get them back. So far, I have tried:

Dr. Fone - nothing.

I used Kingo Root because most of the instructions said the phone had to be rooted first to get the photos back.
Kingo root said it was done, but nothing acts like it is rooted or different from how it was before.

Diskdigger says no partition found - am I sure it is rooted?

Easeus Mobisaver says a superuser request should pop up and it never does .....just sits there.

MobiKin Doctor - nothing.

Mitusoft aidfile recovery - nothing.

Can someone please tell me if and how I can get all my photos back? Or am I just wasting my time and they are gone forever and no way to get them back?

Thanks for any help or advice.

Are you certain that they weren't being automatically backed up to the cloud? Try going to https://photos.google.com/ or https://drive.google.com/ and sign in with your gmail account.
