Works well on 4.3 and this version of CWM, If you have rooted your phone with 4.3 , you do not need to downgrade to 4.1.2

I'm having difficulty mounting sdcard0 after boot. The message to format the card upon boot doesn't show up. How can I mount it? The storage section under settings does not allow me to. I'm using Xperia TL, by the way.

Update: The internal SD was formatted to FAT32 instead of ext2 (or ext4?) after checking it in parted. I have to re-do step's 12-14 for the "SDCard only" and leave it unformatted. In step 15, CWM (I'm using PhilZ Touch CWM Advanced Edition) is formatting it in FAT32 instead of ext4. I hope this will not create a problem later on leaving it as ext2 without formatting.

It could be something with the recovery version you're using. Please use the one I mentioned in the guide to ensure compatibility. You can flash the recovery after you complete repartitioning.

Stop trying and start the phone had a loop asking to be restored, so I had to flash once again a rom.
I have Xperia T with stock 4.3, towelroot and Philz Touch Recovery. I followed all the steps with the phone in recovery, which may be the problem?
Sorry for my English.
Greetings.

If your phone is running JB4.3, you aren't following the guide. Please downgrade to JB4.1.2 in order to make sure the guide is applicable. Once you restore your backup, you'll be back with JB4.3 on the newly repartitioned device.

It worked fine for me without downgrading to stock 4.1. My ROM was CM11, I just flashed PhilZ recovery and went from step 9 on. Thanks for the tutorial.

I am running OmniROM and TWRP recovery on my Xperia T. Is there a way for me to resize sdcard0 without needing to reflash ROM/recovery? I am currently meeting the internal storage limits with apps.

Some people above have reported being able to complete the process without downgrading OS version. However, you will still have to do a backup and restoration of your data because you are moving partition borders on the storage (i.e., data will be lost/damaged).

I need to do this on my V, even though Link2SD kindda solves the issues.

Thanks a lot for this guide!
