    I find a useful script from xda which will increase the internal memory of the device n the best thing is,
    ITS UNIVERSAL....
    It will work on any device n any rom which has root access n init.d support...
    I m just sharing work of user croniccorey from xda, all credits to him...n please thank him too on xda..here is the link for original thread.
    [SCRIPTS]CronMod-A2SD/D2EXT/INT2EXT (updated 08/06) - xda-developers

    Devs can also use theses scripts to their roms provided they give proper credits to the creator of the scripts on their respective rom thread.

    I have tested INT2EXT+ script on my own port from another device as its the best option among the all scripts.The dev also recommend it n I also recommend it.

    INT2EXT scripts are new and faster then D2EXT, They are also the first universal INT2EXT method released

    CAUTION:
    You will loose your IMEI numbers after using the script...n possibly other NVRAM related data too...

    EDIT(12/8/12, 23:32):
    Now here I come in action again, I have modded the original INT2EXT+ script and solved that IMEI n nvram related bugs...I will share here my modded scripts only, for original scripts go to the original thread.
    Other script will be modded on demand.


    PRE-REQUISITES:
    1) Rooted rom with init.d support
    2) sd-ext partition

    FEATURES:

    INT2EXT+
    -Mounts /sd-ext to /data
    -Leaves /data/data on internal for speed
    -Works with EXT 2/3/4 filesystems
    -ZipAligns /data/app on every boot
    -No symlinks
    -First universal INT2EXT method


    INT2EXT+deodexed
    -Mounts /sd-ext to /data
    -Leaves /data/dalvik-cache on internal for speed
    -Works with EXT 2/3/4 filesystems
    -ZipAligns /data/app on every boot
    -No symlinks
    -First universal INT2EXT method


    DOWNLOADS:
    I will share my modded script only, for original scripts go to original thread on xda, link above.

    1) INT2EXT+_Mastermind.zip (IMEI n nvram related bugs fixed, reboot after 1st boot to get IMEI)
    2) INT2EXT+deodexed_Mastermind.zip (for people facing slow system after using INT2EXT+ script)

    HOW TO INSTALL:
    (Instructions based on ClockWorkMod recovery)
    -Download Appropriate Script Below
    -Place on root of your sdcard
    -Reboot Recovery
    -Select "install zip from sdcard"
    -Select "choose zip from sdcard"
    -Select "CronMod-****_signed" (Flashable script zip)
    -Select "mounts and storage" category
    -Select "format /sd-ext"
    -Reboot

    Additional Notes:
    - After flashing n reboot u may not get network, don't worry, just give device some time to boot completely then reboot, u will get back your network n IMEIs...

    buddy he tries to say that either u download the cronMod scripts from xda or try the int2ext+_mastermind.zip from here .!!

    while, the cronMod scripts delete your imei and other nvram stuff ,, on the other hand the one given by mastermind keeps that safe.!! ;)

    firstly backup your sd card coz when u will make partition then all the data will be formatted.!! ;)
    then reboot to recovery
    - advanced
    - partition sd card
    - select ext size any 1 u want
    - then do swap size 0

    woila done.!!
    to check install link2sd and create ext2 mount scripts and after reboot you go to link2sd and click settings and then click storage info.!!
    you will see 2nd part mounted.!! :D

    No idea but did u used it on heavily loaded data partition means lot of apps installed???
    N ya, no other mountscripts should be there,if u were using link2sd then remove 11link2sd from init.d plus install-recovery.sh from /etc...n u will lose ur apps so better to factory reset after removing the scripts.
    If u were on data2sd by me then remove same install-recovery.sh from /etc plus 01e2fsck, 02data2sd n any zipalign script also from init.d...
    I never try that on heavily loaded data partition as I know empty data partition(or atleast minimal) is good for script on 1st run, take less time to move contents to new partitions...

    After these steps
    -Select "mounts and storage" category
    -Select "format /sd-ext"
    did you formatted sd ext if not then you need to do that as if when u select format /sd-ext then after that it will ask to choose yes from the array of no so select it and its done. Remember reboot twice but with a gap of atleast 10mins.

    The script can handle heavily loaded data partition but reason of ur bootloop is Link2SD...u need to completely remove link2sd...the scripts i mentioned.this will make ur apps useless as u have linked them...so instead lending into trouble i would suggest to backup ur apps using titanium and factory reset...then try the script...

    @ALL
    SCRIPT HAS BEEN CHANGED LITTLE BIT TO SOLVE IMEI PROBLEM, DOWNLOAD NEW SCRIPT AGAIN...JUST UPLOADED NEW SCRIPT.
    THANKS & SORRY FOR INCONVENIENCE.

    not working with blue terror

    Edit: working on blue terror, system is little bit slow, thanks for the same.

    I also request you to do some thing for SWAP memory to increase RAM, so that system speed may be improved.

    Thanks a lot mastermind.
