Try it. Dump the different partitions from your device and reconfigure.

The code is available on: https://github.com/wolverine2k/O-Tools/tree/linux. I will soon push the binaries on that one as well. Attached are some screenshots for the same. I have successfully updated my data partition to 10GB running that tool.

Would be great to hear your comments.

Hi

I was wondering if you know where the otools for windows is now located? I have tried every link I can find but there is no windows tool available or I get n error message about a file being too big.

THanks

Right click on the file and click save-as to save on the computer. It is a zip file. Use 7-zip to unzip once saved.
