Default [Q] Safestrap Hyperdrive flashing probs

Hey all, I'm having a wee bit of troubles with getting this hyperdrive install to work. I'm using this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2301724

Here's what I'm having trouble with. When I go to create a virtual slot for a ROM, it gives me an assumed partition of over 5GB. I can only change the data partition size. I have watched videos of SS working well with the install, but when I go to boot options, it doesn't give me the option for partition size. SS version is 3.71. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Also, any way to free up any more system memory? I heard that Android takes up almost 8GB on these phones alone. So am I screwed for not getting a 16GB model (if they have one, idk)?

You need to flash a rom on the stock slot to be able to use all available space. This isn't supported by hashcode, the developer of safestrap, so be aware of the risk. Make sure you have odin and a tar file ready

I have a 16 gb s4 and run 2 custom roms as well as the stock rom. I moved all data to my 32 gb extsd card.
