How come you want to have bigger UMS? Not all apps can be installed there and DATAFS gets full very easily. Also, it's fat32 which creates some problems by itself.

I just dont use this phone as my primary and as i have xplay for games i dont need to have lots of apps on it. Additionaly i have only 4gb sdcard for it, so my internal memory is now bigger than external

i'd really like to repartition my phone's memory but i fear i'm gonna screw everything up

i see a coming soon "pit zone" in the second post, does that mean that there is an automatic way to repartition the internal memory without directly using commands?

You need to use "format" command in ext2 only for HIDDEN partition that it's unneeded on custom ROMs.

For other partitions (SYSTEM, CACHEFS, DATAFS) format through recovery mode (automatically formatted in ext4), and for UMS through Android.

Yes, the PIT zone will have PIT files ready to be flashed to autorepartition along with a kernel that brings you CWM recovery to install/restore your ROM after repartition.

i will definitely wait for the pit files then all i'm looking for is to get rid of those useless partitions like FOTA, Kernel2 etc. just to have more space on the internal memory for apps

Completely agree mate. Also HIDDEN, you don't need it on CM/CM-based custom ROMs

I really have to say this guide is just A-W-E-S-O-M-E
The process is not that easy but very well explained
