    Lightbulb Nokia N9 Data Storage [Format, Repartition Resize?]

    Hi

    I have an idea about N9 user data storage.

    Is there any way on how to change the user data from 9.5GB to lets say around 11-14GB? The Nokia N9 16GB is crippled and just gives users around 9.5GB out of 16GB for user storage for music, pictures, videos etc. Personally I think there should be some sort of feature or utility that should allow users to change the size of each parition on the Nokia N9;

    - Application apps
    4.2GB
    I certainly will not be using that much, what a waste of storage.

    - Application data
    2.1GB
    I am sure I can get away with around 500MB - 1GB

    - User data
    9.5GB
    This definitely can do with space from application apps/application data giving users more storage space.

    Never tried, but I think you can use parted.
    It's a linux tool to resize partitions.

    some info here:

    I have done this... I've done it for a 64GB N9.... I was able to change the 4GB partition to 10.8GB... 4GB was not enough for me... I ran into a Memory full error while updating to PR1.2...

    So I did a resize and then I could Update....

    For more details please look at my blog - thegadgetfreak(dot)net...
