Dear I searched this topic both on XDA and Google without any answers hence posting here

I have a galaxy Exhibit 4g and if I try to install SlimKat and full-modular-Gapps I have literally no memory left on the system partition. I was wondering if we can re-partition the space so we can reallocate the internal SD towards Data and system (the internals SD is a pain anyways). I have done similar stuff for my nook color which my son uses for playing kids learning games. Please let me know if this would be possible and how to go about it. Here are my df stats. Thanks in advance.

its a lot simpler to just move most of the gapps (hangouts, playstore, play games, etc) to sdcard. even better if you swap int2ext sd if you have a decent size sdcard and just use the real int for pics, music, etc. If the ext sd is a class10 or above you will notice a major difference in overall performance.
