i flashed CM11 after flashing your zip..
Exactly my thoughts and situation - I'm also a noob that'd rather avoid messing with flashtool :P
I have no idea how dead this thread may be, but it gave me new hopes of increasing my storage without having to use flashtool to do it.
In fact, I've been able to do everything so far - install CWM, new ROM, tweak and update stuff - without needing to flash anything except through mobileuncle and CWM
I'll start by saying I have an MT6592 Newman K1S.
I got a flashable zip from here (RiTz_partition_mod_a116.zip); replaced the EBRs in it for the ones on "CWM STOCK ROM v1.0 EBR-7.0 GB.rar" available on needrom, because 7Gb it's roughly half the space available and sounds enough; and deleted the line "format("ext4", "EMMC", "/emmc@android", "0", "/system");" because I'm not changing the system size.
I'm too scared to try it
I attached it, can anyone more experienced take a look/test it and let me know if it might work?
Thanks in advance!
Eureka !!! I simply replaced the modified EBR1 & 2 files in the stock ROM files and flashed the same.. Then booted into recovery.. cleared the caches and system.. Now I have 1.9 GB as Internal memory.. Yeahhhh cumbersome to reinstall all apps but it works...
Thanx a TON to keanu_ritz.. for all the initiative.. research.. hardwork and esp. the calculations bcos of which this was possible.. and also all those who have contributed to this thread... Thank you guys..
Tutorial/Guide for Re-partitioning MTK6589 + Increase your System & Data Partitions + Flash through CWM/TWRP + no need to use SPFlashTool
Part 1 :- To Flash existing modified EBR files through CWM/TWRP
There are plenty of guides for re-partitioning mtk devices, so why this one?
Well almost all of them suggest to use SPFlashTool to flash the "EBR" Files.
But we can do that by using CWM/TWRP (Custom Recoveries) as well!!!!!
no need to use SPFlashTool!
no need to format the Internal SDCard through PC!!
