Question partition sd card without computer?

Does anyone know if you can partition your sd card without a computer? I think i read that there was an app to do it,but I don't remember the name of it.
Reason being I want links 2sd and I have no access to a pc.
T.I.A.

Not sure of an app to do it but if you have a custom recovery you can partition it there. Most will create an ext3 partition. This method will erase everything from sdcard though

I use link2sd and it supports fat32, ext2, 3, and 4. When you first run it, it will ask for the partition type.

I use BACKside and it runs great. No bugs that I know of. Jerry just released a new build today along with a recovery he made. With both you can do automatic rom updates, backups and restores. Very nice. Check into both the threads.

The problem with some ext partitions is they don't work with Link2SD on all ROM's. FAT32 will work with Link2SD on any custom ROM made to this date. You can use ext.3, but you will have to try and see what ROM it will work on.
I do not know of any app that will partition the SD card while still in the phone. The recovery is the only way to partition without a computer.

The problem with a FAT32 partition is that some recoveries will not properly backup or restore your partition with your linked apps. As far as i know, all the cwm based recoveries will backup ext4 or ext3, but from my experience, will fail when trying to restore a FAT32 partition.

JerryScripts Green recovery backed up my FAT32 partition flawlessly. So did the BobZohme recovery (VM670NH_recovery.img).
BACKside didn't work with ext.3 (this is what the recovery made), but will work with FAT32, ext,2 and ext.4.
You have to decide. FAT32,ext.2 or ext.4
