I have a problem with system partition(not internal storage). The problem is that it shows low space in system partition in twrp( 60 mb left) and i cant use some apps like GL Tools as they are installed in system partition. Can we resize system partition? Or something similar but without uninstalling system apps so that OTAs will not stop.
My device is redmi note 5 pro(whyred)

All apps installed on "/system" have all data stored on ”/data" partition. So low space on "/system" doesn't impact anything. See How disk space is used on Android device?

Yes, but it's risky and not recommended.

OTA updates won't work even if you once mount "/system" R/W (dm-verity breaks), rather you are talking about resizing it.
