@keanu_ritz .. These are my currency files
/system -> 907mb/953,036,800Bytes
Internal_sd -> 1.5gb/1,610,039,296Bytes
/data -> 0.99gb/1,060,319,232Bytes

I want system to be 950mb... And data to be 1.5gb&2gb..
The files you have in your thread are close, but system partition is 883mb.. Which matters a lot, when installing color os...

Will you do that? Please. These are my current files.

I'm trying to use this on a lenovo p780. So far I've been trying for a week to get my full 8 gigabytes back in action on a CN markup. Any help? I've tried flashing this file 3 times already with no profit. Should the EBR 1 and 2 lines have " " or no? Do I need to toss in any other files? Scatter, MBR, pmt?

Part 1 :- To Flash existing modified EBR files through CWM/TWRP

There are plenty of guides for re-partitioning mtk devices, so why this one?
Well almost all of them suggest to use SPFlashTool to flash the "EBR" Files.

But we can do that by using CWM/TWRP (Custom Recoveries) as well!!!!!
no need to use SPFlashTool!
no need to format the Internal SDCard through PC!!

Just take your modified "EBR" files and put them into a Flashable Zip.

Edit the "updater-script" file to include the following lines.

package_extract_file("EBR1", "/dev/ebr1"); 
#put the name of your EBR1 file in place of "EBR1"
package_extract_file("EBR2", "/dev/ebr2"); 
#put the name of your EBR2 file in place of "EBR2"

Note :-
If your device uses both the files then add both the lines and If your device uses only "EBR1" then add only the line of "EBR1".

Now add the following lines to format your "/system" , "/cache" and "/data" partitions.


format("ext4", "EMMC", "/[email protected]", "0", "/system");
format("ext4", "EMMC", "/[email protected]", "0", "/cache");
format("ext4", "EMMC", "/[email protected]", "0", "/data");
Note :- If you are going to increase your "/system" partition then you'll have to format the 3 partitions,
and if you just want to increase the "/data" partition then just include the lines for formatting "/cache" and "/data".

now save the "updater-script" file and replace it in the Flashable zip!!

Or , you can use this sample flashable zip file.
download it and put your EBR files in it!!!!
edit the "updater-script" file according to your need and replace it in the Flashable zip!!

copy the Flashable zip file to your external SDCard
reboot to recovery
select install from zip file and choose the flashable zip file
Flash it.

Remember after flashing the EBR files do not restore your previous CWM/TWRP Backup.
Just Flash any CWM/TWRP Flashable ROM available for your device!!
Wipe Dalvik Cache if you haven't done it already!!
reboot and see for yourself!!!

Disclaimer :-
I will not be in anyway responsible for any damage this might cause to your phone.
if you'll follow the instructions correctly, then everything will be fine.

i did it with micromax p580 tab . made internal storage 3 gb (app installation) and rest for media storage.
i got partial success. as i reboot device. i get notifiaciton "internal sd got damged. try formatting it" . after formating it works.
But each reboot gives message of damaged internal sd.

please help me solve this .
