What purpose does all the stuff with using the Stock ROM plus the special recovery serve?
I'm just curious whether I can do the stuff on a Custom ROM, too. I can "adb shell" into it already, so that's no that of a problem. The partitions are just "plain" ext4 - so nothing problematic there, too.
Is the Stock ROM needed for Step 19? It's actually the only thing I'm kinda worried about...

Just looked at the linked thread, there you say sth. that there were issues with the "current" recovery, so this might be over now .
Never seen something that a special ROM is needed for that, why did you include that in the thread?
With my phone I even have make_ext4fs, so this *might* even be easier

Just tried it with Neo's mint ROM, seems to boot already

Maybe I'm providing a script that makes it even more easier later on - but currently final exams are waiting.

Everything works. CM at first didn't recognize the sdcard0, but I could open it in filemanager but nowhere else, but after going to Settings->Storage->Erase SDCard this is completely fixed

Maybe this *could* work. I don't know whether everybody has make_ext4, nor whether the parted version of android can do that --script stuff, but if, it should work...
umount /storage
parted --script /dev/block/mmcblk0 rm 14
parted --script /dev/block/mmcblk0 rm 15
parted --script /dev/block/mmcblk0 mkpartfs logical ext2 1621 7865
parted --script /dev/block/mmcblk0 mkpartfs logical ext2 7865 15.6GB
parted --script /dev/block/mmcblk0 name 14 Userdata
parted --script /dev/block/mmcblk0 name 15 SDCard
make_ext4fs /storage/sdcard0
/storage/sdcard1/fs-utils/tune2fs -j /dev/block/mmcblk0p14
/storage/sdcard1/fs-utils/tune2fs -O extents,uninit_bg,dir_index /dev/block/mmcblk0p14
/storage/sdcard1/fs-utils/e2fsck -fpDC0 /dev/block/mmcblk0p14

In OP post there is sentence:
"1621 (or another number you recorded in step 11) + additional space = new end. I added 4GB (4 1024MB = 4096MB) so my new end point was 7865"
I am not sure if I am wrong about it but shouldn't it be 5717 as new end ? I know that is only exemple but still I want to be sure if I am making bad calculations or its just little mistake

The calculation in the OP is correct. He ADDED another 4GB to the existing size. That's why he ends at 7865.
