my primary phone, the one which I wiped clean and haven't since logged into Google on, has been caching ridiculous amounts of data lately. about half a gig in 2 or 3 days. I rebooted into TWRP this morning and took a look, and it was all under the cache file for com.android.vendor. tonight I went into Settings|Apps, and found something named Google Play Services for Instant Apps, or something similarly named, and it was removable! so I removed it. also disabled Google Play Store itself, since I can't even use it unless and until I sign the phone into the global data collection agency.

we'll see if this solves anything, or causes more problems...
