I unpacked the v1.03 Rooted firmware image with wendals tools. I want to edit the parameter file and increase the size of the data partition. 2.5GB for internal SD is enough for me, I want to allocate the remaining space to data partition. How to do that? there are two entries ->

1) 0x00400000@0x0015c000(userdata)

2) -@0x0065e000(user)

 

Which one to change? the format seems to be "size@offset", am I right? Is "0x00400000" the no of Bytes or KBytes?

I don't have all the parameter file format details here with me and which MTD partition value to change, but basically each value is size@offset, it's the hexadecimal representation of 512 bytes units, that is

0x00400000 (hex) = 4194304 (dec) * 512 bytes = 2147483648 bytes = 2048 megabytes

It worked. I  added "-@0x<offset>(userdata)" at end and removed "(user)" part and adjusted the other offsets. Thanks. CoolCoolCool

 

I have some questions...

1) Will this change be compatible with CWM(downloaded from androtab.info) or CWM needs to be recompiled?

2) Does CWM support NTFS formatted SDcards? (CWM was showing, "cannot mount external sd").

3) On my tablet hardware keys for booting into CWM recovery are not working. What to do for that?
