    I must be missing something...
    To use GParted it tells me to 'connect device in Recovery mode and mount as USB mass storage'
    When I boot into Recovery (vol down / power on) I don't get the option to chose mass storage. I hear the sound it normally makes, but I can't access the pull down to make a selection.....?

    In clockwork mod recovery, you go to "mounts and storage" then "mount.usb mass storage"

    I have partitioned the SD card - seemed successful?
    Downloaded Quick System Info and it shows that the SD Free space has gone down, but A2SD storage 'information not available' and Internal Storage is still low...

    Does this sound right? From what I understand, I wont see any positive effects until after I install a custom rom?

    you need to use a rom that supports a2sd
    if you used gparted the fat32 must be 1st then the ext2/3/4 partition and both should be primary

    you need to check the rom you are using whether youve got any addition commands to do to enable it as some wont use it where as other you will need to do specific things to turn this feature on

    what rom are you using?

    you cannot use a2sd+ without using a rom that supports it. standard htc rom that has been freshly rooted does not support a2sd.

    there are loads, teppic76's stock roms are a good start.
