Hi evereybody, i have nexus 5 16gb and i wonder this: i use cm 11 rom on my n5 and i edit ( erasing some unnecessary system apps for example talkback.apk etc ) before flashing the zip. And after flashing when i checked system storage on root explorer, i see there is some free space ( 600mb). can i use that free space for installing app or for storage?

Sorry for my english.

Yes, you can use that space to install apps. Just put the apk file in /system/app/ or /system/priv-app/.. Fix permissions and reboot!

Thanx for your answer and yes i already knew that, but i want something like partitioning. I can't explain that well, i think.

You can't realistically change the partition sizes. In theory yes, but it's way beyond anything I'd attempt.

Well if it's the same as older HTC devices / older Nexus devices, we'd need a hacked bootloader first and I haven't seen one of those for a couple of years.
