Hello folks,

I know this is not the official forum but this seemed to be the only one related to Lenovo Tablets.

So, I just bought a Lenovo Ideatab a1000 tablet (4gb edition) and unfortunately, I came to know that lenovo has partitioned the eMMC card rather uniquely. Only 500 MB is available for installing applications while other space is reserved for data etc.

Obviously, I ran out of space after installing 7-8 applications.

I wanted to ask is there any way to extend the partition to use the whole space? If yes, how?

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm facing the same problems
And different storage size.
I have 500mb for Internal
And 2gb eMMC.

My badluck. I dont even asking about this and they dont mention about that when I bought this one.
As I know it will be having 4gb storage with the lowest price.

Info 2 Install the new update
They just released a new update, which converts the 500MB internal storage to 1.5GB internal storage reducing the USB storage from 2GB to 1GB. It will also wipe out your apps and data, so don't forget to take a back up

Easiest way to increase internal is just swipe the internal and SDcard.

This can be done by overwrite the file vold.fstab in system/etc directory
I have modified vold.fstab file

If you want it
