Question [Q] miniCM10 w/ link2sd + a2sdgui Trouble

Hi guys,

I have a Sony ericsson X10 mini pro with nAa's Kernel and miniCM10-4.1.0-20130518-NIGHTLY and I also flashed:
On top of that a internal memory of 192MB and a 16GB SDHC class10 SD card.

Boring story part (with more details and links and stickie just in case I forget something ) :

So far so good until I start installing apps and noticed that with a couple the memory was full. After a little research I found link2SD was the solution,
the SD card I have is more than fit for the job.

But then starter the problems, after I partitioned, with MiniTool,
my SD card as FAT32 (~13GB) and ext-N (2, 3 & 4) (~1GB) as primary none worked (at least for long).
I had some success with Ext-3 but the 2nd time I restarted my phone, Scrips were nowhere to be seen nor any linking of some kind.

Then (after more Googling) I tried both partitions as FAT32 and there it was working cool again.

Well went to download more apps, but memory was full, how so? I added a GB to it!
Found that I would, also, need to use A2SDGUI and it's Scripts (Version Beta 04).

Flashed the scripts and then tried to run A2SDGUI not working pop's this error window:
Exiting A2SDGUI
Could not start for one of these reasons:
  1. Your device is not rooted
  2. A2SD scripts could not be found
  3. No EXT partition found
Now I'm in trouble because android DOES NOT mount my 2nd partition if it's filesystem is not FAT32
(perhaps this is a scripting problem instead of Filesystem support ? )

And A2SDGUI is no longer being developed/suported.

Bottom line:
I installed link2SD but it only works when my 2nd partition is also FAT32, or else it won't mount,
and the phone internal memory continues to get shorter as I install apps.
Then I installed A2SDGUI and (Flashed) it's Scripts to try to JOIN the internal memory(/data)and SD card's 2nd partition so,
android doesn't give that annoying low memory error message.

I'm having trouble making andoid think that /data is ~1.2GB.
Can someone help me out on this? How can I "make" a "bigger" internal memory?
I searched Google but I couldn't find any GOOD answer to my question.
