Find any old nokia phone that has a micro sd card slot and put your sd card in it. Then format the sd card using the phones file manager and voila the partition is deleted!!

connect your phone to PC,enable mass storage,install mini tool partition wizard on PC and open it and there you'll see your hdd and sdcard partitions,then delete sdext partition and extend the fat32 partiton of sdcard with the free space that has left after deleting sdext partition

MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition is the easiest way. You can find tutorials in the web.

Sorry but i can't see how? From recovery is simple.
Boot to recovery.
Select format sdcard
Wait
Profit.
Both twrp and cwm recoveries support this :/

No, I think the OP asked how he can delete the sdext partition i.e. merge it with the original partition. I'm not sure if that can be done from the recovery.

A valid point, but I would still do a full format. after copying everything I needed over of course Both methods work
