I've modified EBR1 & EBR2 to increase the partition size as follows--
/system = 1 gb
/cache = 200 mb
/data = 4 gb
But, i'm unable to flash it, as neither I could create scatter file to flash it with sp flash tool, nor I could make a flashable zip to flash via recovery.
Please, give suggestions, what /system size would be better to suit our development needs.
Also, please tell me how could I create a modified scatter file to flash these EBR files via sp flash tools or please help me, to create a recovery flashable zip file.
Also, I'm trying to increase /recovery partition size.
I'll upload EBR files very soon with above mentioned sizes.
Thank you all, specially Dr. Avi for his roms, and lets be a team to make our Xolo Q3000 much better.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Finally, I've come up with the CWM flashable zip, with the partition size as follows-
/system = 1.5 gb
/cache = 200 mb
/data = 5.0 gb
Download link:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9c...ew?usp=sharing


Mod with 1gb /system, 200mb /cache & 4gb data partition:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9c...ew?usp=sharing

Procedure:

1) Place zip in your sd card, don't keep any data on phone storage.
2) Reboot to recovery(TWRP v2.8.4.0 rev1 recovery is prefered)
3) Back up your current rom to sd card
4) Wipe system, cache, data, dalvik cache, android secure & emmc also.
5) Install downloaded zip file
6) Reboot

It will be a bootloop, don't panic, remove battery to power off, place it back and go to recovery by pressing vol up + power button.

7) Now, you may see some error related to cache/ recovery.....
8) Wipe system, cache, data, dalvik cache, android secure & emmc also. Error will disappear.....
9) Restore your previous rom or flash a new custom rom
x) Reboot

In case if, there is bootloop or any problem, don't panic, go to recovery and again format /system, /data, /cache and flash custom rom.

Now, we don't have to think of /system partition size to port ROMs.

It's an outcome of lot of hardwork, so please be gentle, even if you face any problem while re-partitioning & I'm here to see u, whatever ur problem is.......................

Special thanx to:
Keanu_ritz & Tirta.agung for their guide,
Digyvijaykumar123 for CWM flashable zip &
Dr. Avi for his co-operation & appreciation.

If you appreciate my work, just press thanks button.

Flash at ur own risk, I'll not be responsible for bricked devices............................

Very good initiative.
Thanks.
1 gb system partition is more than enough for development.

u can get recovery flashble zip from this link. just replace EBR files.

U dont need separate scatter file for flashing for the first time.
After flashing u need to create new scatter file using mtkdroid tools which has to be used for further flashing.

Also this link is useful.

I've already mentioned, it would be a boot loop, but you don't have to worry.
read the procedure carefully and follow the steps, you will get the partitions same as in screenshots.
