    Clear App Cache / Data:

    NOTE: If one of your third party apps freezes, crashes, takes up too much storage inexplicably or simply doesn’t work as intended, you can try fixing these issues by clearing the app’s cache and / or data.

    WARNING! Clearing an app’s data will result in the deletion of all personal information stored within the app, including saved games, profiles, high scores, credit card and login information etc. To avoid losing personal data, try fixing the app by clearing only the cache.

    1. Tap “Apps” on the home screen
    2. Open “Settings
    3. Scroll to “Phone” and tap “Apps
    4. Go to “All” and select the desired app
    5. Tap “Clear cache
    6. If the problems remain, you can tap “Clear data” > “OK” (read WARNING above)

    Clear the Cache Partition:

    NOTE: if your phone freezes, crashes, or runs out of storage inexplicably, you can try fixing these issues by clearing the phone’s cache partition. This can yield similar results as a factory reset without losing any personal data located on the internal memory.

    1. Turn off the phone
    2. Press and hold “Volume Down” and “Power
    3. When the phone vibrates, release “Power
    4. At the “hTC download mode” screen, release “Volume down” too
    5. Press “Volume down” repeatedly to highlight “Reboot to bootloader
    6. Press “Power” to select the highlighted option
    7. From the bootloader screen, press “Volume down” to highlight “Boot to Recovery Mode
    8. Press “Power” to select the highlighted option
    9. Wait for the “Android system recovery” menu to appear. If the phone shows a red triangle and exclamation mark instead, press and hold “Power” and “Volume up
    10. From the Android System Recovery menu, press “Volume down” to highlight “wipe cache partition
    11. Press “Power” to select the option
    12. After the cache is cleared, “Reboot system now” should be highlighted
    13. Press “Power” again to confirm and restart your device

    NOTE: In case clearing the cache partition didn’t solve the problems, you can visit this thread for instructions on how to factory reset the HTC Desire 530 instead.

    Reboot in Safe Mode and Remove an App:

    NOTE: If you have installed a third party app that causes issues on your device and prevents you from removing it, you should be able to remove the app from within Safe Mode. In this mode, all third party apps are disabled. To reboot your device in Safe Mode:

    1. Wake up the screen and press & hold “Power
    2. From the “Power options” menu, tap and hold “Power off
    3. When prompted to “Reboot to safe mode”, tap “Restart
    4. After the phone restarts, a “Safe mode” label should be shown in the lower-left corner of the screen
    5. To remove an app, first go to “Settings
    6. Scroll to “Phone” and tap “Apps
    7. Swipe to “Downloaded” and select the desired app
    8. Tap “Uninstall” > “OK
    9. To exit safe mode, press and hold “Power”, and select “Restart

    Thanks, regularly clean your Android is a good way to free up memory and speed up Android. An Android cleaner tool will be a good assistant to clean your Android.

    About Clear App Cache / Data; Wipe the Cache Partition on HTC mobile phone, as I know, the easy way is using Android data eraser program. With its help, you can do those easily. And the erased data can't be recvoered by any tool.
