A more easy way is to boot in 4ext recovery and flash the script of the rom you want to delete from gtbluesky http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=428
i tried it with paranoid and it worked perfect for deleting PA folder from sd-ext.It left PA folder in sdcard/NativeSD folder,so i deleted this manually.
Also even if you are in wm,you can take a full backup of your roms by using in 4ext recovery the advanced backup--->sd-ext option.This will make a backup of your sd-ext contents in sdcard/clockworkmod/advanced/sd-ext folder.
Then you can enlarge your ext partition and go to advanced restore--->sd-ext to restore your contents

thats a good idea and all but i can just delete the rom in the nativesdmultiboot.apk v4, painless

This is NativeSDBootV4.zip file. How can I install it?
I`m running WM on NAND and PA on SD /.ext4/. Everything running very smoothly and much faster than previously on SD.
Please, for us WM users, give us some tutorial like step by step for multiboot.
Thanks in advanced.

MiniTool Partition Wizard does not seem to let me reduce my FAT32 partition to free space to then increase ext4. Is there another (easy) way to do it?

Have you tried GParted for linux related partition (resizing) stuff ?

you can use MiniPartition Tool - free edition. it allows you to careate ext4 partition and does formating too.

Thanks,

Yes, Guys... however the big question is which one from all these partitioning tools takes care about both partitions and filesystems (both: fat32 and Ext4) alignment... This seems important because according to many reports could influence data write rate by up to 16%.

Based on our early experience it is still important to format the ext4 partition using the 4EXT Recovery tool before first install as NativeSD

Is this as intended? If not then what to do to rely solely on nativeSDMultiBoot?

Τhis is normal if you run clk.As allready has been said,clk doesnt read directly from sdcard.So the steps required to use this great app in clk are
1.Select from app the nativesd rom,you want to switch
2.Go into recovery and flash flash_sboot_v2.zip
Until clk will be able to read directly for sdcard we must everytime that we want to change rom to flash again sboot partition or we can use latest clk version from kokotas and flash tboot,vboot to be able to boot to another nativesd rom while rebooting device

I agree with this, there is an option in EXT4 recovery to check alignment, there were some errors on my sd-ext made by gparted, and it seems my device is smoothness now
