    Right, so I'm following this guide, which was recommended by baadnwz, but I'm having a little trouble, specifically this part:

    I can't find any good guides, and I honestly have no idea of what to do, so if anyone can help me, or just point me to a good guide, that would be great!

    If you use gparted to create your partitions, it aligns them automatically.

    Yeah, but I already have an EXT4 partition, can I somehow un-partition it and start over?

    Sure thing, just start over again.

    So I should just use Gparted as if this is my first time partitioning my SD card?
    What will happen to the old partition?

    I've never had to do it yet, so I really don't know.

    When you load the GPartEd Live CD and connect your phone (I'd use a card reader personally) you'll see the current layout. You can either delete all partitions and start again or drag the EXT partition larger/smaller and convert to EXT4 if you want to. You can do anything!

    Deleting partitions will........ delete them! All data on those partitons will be lost so make back ups if you need to.

    In Gparted just select the drive your working on, select the partition, select delete. If you have another patition to delete just reeat the step, then go to I think edit and apply, this will perform the selected actions. then select new partition, size, ntfs, fat32 etc. apply again.

    Lecter or Hardon or someone who knows their stuff around here has a guide, have a look in some siggies.

    Instead of using a live CD, can I just use the Ubuntu app Gnome Partition Editor?

    I have no idea, sorry.

    This is its description:

    "GParted uses libparted to detect and manipulate devices and partition tables while several (optional) filesystem tools provide support for filesystems not included in libparted."

    So basically, this would be GParted in an application instead of a live CD, so this should work right?

    I think its pretty much the same thing being Linux. You don't need to make a CD you can easile make a bootable Flashdrive also.

    At 7:04 in your video, you put 1348, what should I put?
    I have a 4 GB card.

    Edit:
    Should I put 3584?
    4096-512=3584

    512 or 1024. Depends what you think you'll need

    I'm at the part where I specify the size of the FAT32 partition.
     
  23. InfernalByte

    Specify what you think you'll need! just over 3Gb as you have a 4 Gb card, fill the rest with ext.

    Well take 512 or 1024 (depending on what size ext you need) from 4096 and make the answer the size of your fat.

    Well take it from 4000 as a 4GB card isn't actually 4GB

    DON'T make an ext more than 2gb!!!!
