No. You can do it using SafeStrap in a rom slot.

The bottom line however, SafeStrap DOES NOT limit device storage. It creates a loopback partition with a shared storage pool. The only thing that is limited is the rom slot /system, /data & /cache looped partitions. These are limited in the stock, 100% factory setup too, but the user storage space is SHARED. So, when you have a big app, like Asphalt, or Madded 25, the biggest thing is the obb files, which are stored in /sdcard/android/data & is a part of the shared storage. While the storage settings may say xxGb available, it does not correctly reflect how much storage you truly have. You can indeed access 100% of your 64Gb, or 32Gb, or whatever amount of storage your HDX came with. the only thing you lose storage-wise, is the 4Gb you use for the rom slot,
PEOPLE! You still have access to ALL of your user storage, i.e. /sdcard with SafeStrap.
