    Seen this on XDA and thought I would share it, works on my phone, and I have over 100MB left for apps.

    Note: This will resize the system and data partitions to allow more space for apps by taking some space from the system partition on the phone

    Source: [HOW-TO] Easily resize system + data partitions! - xda-developers

    Thanks to Mur4ik for making the program for this method, and thank you to effortless on XDA for posting it.

    Oh and I found that after this fastboot instaid of showing a blank screen it shows a blue one and shows what is being done through fastboot, but it seems to work all the same.

    In my opinion its alot safer than data2system, as long as you do a nandroid backup before hand.

    The CM7 post by dudeman has everything you need, including the driver (should be all you need) download the kdz zip and install the driver.

    Thank you for this thread.

    I was just wondering whether this tool only applies on rooted LGs mentioned or if it works (and I hope so) on almost any rooted device.

    The screenshot makes me think it's a generic device tool, once it detects your hardware, but it's just a personal guess. That might come useful to me, if that's the case.
