    You can't*. You need to save the data from the SD card, partition using Recovery, then copy the files back.



    * - it may be possible to partition non-destructively while mounted to a Linux computer, but I can't recall the procedure, it may depend on the Linux build, and you can never fully trust a non-destructive partition anyway, so I would back up the card anyway.

    I followed that guide to partioning the sd card, and after i did that it works. What is a good ROM i could use? I want the phone to be able to be a little faster, and right now it has the stock rom on there but is just rooted.
