After tons of googling ive finally been able to customize the size of my data partition.

Im sharing it with you all...

Install Instuctions
It really is quite simple
1.download FR-recovery-v1.5.6-CustomMTD_S.zip and FR-boot-v1.5.6-CustomMTD_S.zip
2.create mtdpartmap.txt and put on /sdcard/ see configuration *
3.reboot to recovery
4.nandbackup
5.wipe cache + data
6.flash FR-recovery-v1.5.7-CustomMTD_S.zip(follow onscreen instructions)
7.reboot to recovery
8.Either : -
Nandrestore
or
Flash ROM + extras
9.flash FR-boot-v1.5.7-CustomMTD_S.zip
10.reboot


*For cyanogenmod- write "mtd 135 15"
this will give ur system 135mb, cache 15 mb and rest for data!!!!(u can change the values but be sure u give enough to system otherwise ull face problems while flashing)

NOTE-each time u flash a rom u MUST flash FR-boot-v1.5.7-CustomMTD_S.zip.
NOTE-if u reduce cache size by a large amount, market and other apps depending on cache will fc.

credits-Firerat for the files and instructions at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=717874


as sense roms are heavy...this wouldnt be of much help.



PS-as always im not responsible if u brick ur device.


PRESS THANKS IF IT HELPED! :P

Can someone test this please? To OP: does it work?

Want to do it, but don't want a bricked phone.
I just need a 100 mb more for data, so i dont need the build in "move to sd" option from android.

Chicken. As I wrote in the other thread....it works.

Be careful not to undersize your Cache partition though or Market and other apps that rely on it for temp storage will force close.

The guy that said he uses a 10 MB cache partition is on better drugs than I can afford...

Yes.

First this is a confusing and partially explained tutorial...No offense. Here it is for CM7.x with updated script files and an mtdpartmap.txt for CM7.x

1/ Create the txt file and do not hit enter. Make sure there is no carriage return taking you to a second line.
2/Now save it as "mtdpartmap.txt" (For CM7x you can use 145 20 with no worries).
3/ Copy the recovery file, the boot file and the mtdpartmap.txt files to the root of your SD card
4/Copy Alquez's latest nightyly CM7 zip to the root of your SD card along with the latest gapps zip
5/Reboot to recovery
6/ Erase user data
7/ Under Mounts, format system
8/ Install zip from SD card and run the Recovery zip
9/ Go back to mounts and format data, cache and system partitions
10/ Go to advanced menu and reboot to recovery
11/ If you are restoring a NANDROID backup do so now using backup/restore
12/ If you are installing CM7.x Install zip from SD and flash the CM7 zip and the gapps zip
13/ Install zip from SD card and now flash the boot zip.
14/ Return to recovery main menu and reboot device
15/ Enjoy your roomy CM7.x install!

Don't listen to 135 for CM7! It's not close to enough.

Will it work with Wildfire S with unlocked bootloader (via HTC webpage)? Or is it only for S-OFF phones?

I have the bootloader unlocked and it seems that it does not work :( Maybe I am doing something wrong?

@ d33spx the tutorial is perfect and complete.the steps u posted are unnecessary.
@everyone with s on but bl unlocked: it won't work.
@everyone with soff and cyanogen mod: 135 15 is more than enough...
For sense roms which are debloated 250 20 is good...
