Default [Updated] Increase app storage, Swap memory on magnus A117.

Just after installing FEW HEAVY apps in my magnus and later when they developed cache, my device started showing low on space type notification .
When i saw in settings/apps then only 64 mb space was remaining.

Its not any type of issue like m using more or less apps thats why m getting this.

This is a general issue as with time increases apps develop their cache and they become bigger and bigger hence occupy space.
We have got only 800MB or something as internal storage so sooner or later we are supposed to have memory issue.

Using the guide below, I have made my internal space 1.9 GB or, i have completly swapped phone memory to apps only.
I have made these files for me keeping in mind that everyone have a good capacity memory card and hence no need to use internal space.

Original guide :- HERE


Download The files below in attachment linked and flash them with SP tools.
Select scatter loading, select the files and click on DONWLOAD

Well, if you are worried about Warranty it's coz you are very new to xda. soon you will find how to flash stock rom and get warranty back.
Perhaps, This process is done using sp tools so no need to have root.
And no one in service center ever gonna find what you done to your phone.

Here are EBR Files flash them using SP Flash Tool .
Yes I successfully increased my data partition of Micromax Magnus A117 from 1 GB to 2 GB

I followed this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2596030

You will have 2gb storage for apps and 600 mb for internal storage after flashing modified EBR files.
