I would like to enlarge the data partition of my Samsung S2 I9100, and there is a good thread about it here.

It has the command to flash the PIT as
$ heimdall flash --repartition --pit newpit.pit
But heimdall is refusing to flash, I guess because I have to specify all partitions with the same command:
$ heimdall flash --repartition --pit I9100_16GB_6GBdata.pit 
Action: flash
    --repartition --pit <filename>
	--<partition name>|--<partition identifier> <filename> [...]
    [--verbose] [--no-reboot] [--stdout-errors] [--delay <ms>]
    [--usb-log-level <none/error/warning/debug>]
	--<partition name>|--<partition identifier> <filename> [...]
    [--pit <filename>]
    [--verbose] [--no-reboot] [--stdout-errors] [--delay <ms>]
    [--usb-log-level <none/error/warning/debug>]
Description: Flashes one or more firmware files to your phone. Partition names
    (or identifiers) can be obtained by executing the print-pit action.
WARNING: If you're repartitioning it's strongly recommended you specify
        all files at your disposal.
It's heimdall 1.4.0. Is it not possible anymore to flash just the PIT?

P.s.: Of course it is dangerous, I know, I diffed old and new PIT file and only the data and ums partitions seem to change.
