Hi guys,

In the thread 4.4.2 TeamCanjica CyanogenMod11 from the forum HTCmania, I have developed an "internal memory repartition", because the thread in XDA doesn't explain it correctly and even caused several semi-bricks in my tests.
In my tutorial, the XX.txt files name indicates the value (in MB) of the USB memory that will remain.
The lower the XX.txt name number is, the higher the internal memory value will be for installing apps.
For example, using the 40.txt file, the internal memory will be 2.89GB, a good capacity if we want to use ART as runtime.

The tutorial is very easy. You will find it inside the file adb.zip. Follow every step and you won't have any brick.
The repartition method works in GT-I8160 and GT-I8160P models.
There are two other files that explain how to restore those values to factory settings, just in case that something went wrong. One restoration file is for the normal model and the other for the P model, so you only have to use one, depending on which model you have.

Rom cm, based on cm and based in rom stock

This method works really fine! Look at the picture:

Thank you for sharing this!
Before I try it, let me ask you one thing. It says the phone has to "have the swap memories activated" in the instructions. Is it really necessary? If yes, why? Thanks

Is not necessary but yes recommended.
When you not have's sd card or not swap memories, you can repartition 500mb or 750mb.
In phone, we have 2 internal storage, 1 going the app installed, and the other what you can look at pc (1,1gb), in this other when you tried only 172kb, your phone writing files automatically, when haven't free space have a error (is not big error, you make a swap and is resolved) .
Then, when you have the sd card in internal storage, you have a more space.. Without problems...

Have you me understand? I have so bad English...

I understand you perfectly well, thank you! To put it simple, the apps partition is being increased during repartition in the expense of /storage/sdcard0 partition, so, to have a usable /storage/sdcard0, you have to swap it with the external sdcard.

I'll try this on my GF's phone as soon as I have the chance

It is not necessary to have the exchange of memories, but if you leave 172 kb in the sd to be that you put in this space.
According to the space that after-tastes, for that it does not have sd external or it does not want to do the exchange of memories, I advise of 500 mb or 750 mb.
It depends on each one

Thank you for your response!

I've looked the instructions through, and they seem to be clear, except for this part, which left me wondering for a while:
Quote:

On the PC go to the "System Symbol"

As I take it, it means launching a command line (cmd).
And the ""System symbol" window" is actually the command line window.

Also, these commands:
Quote:

cd..
cd..
cd adb

can be replaced with just one:
Quote:

cd C:\adb

If it is CMD
If you come to the folder adb you can replace it, but this way it was less a mess
