    On the stock rom there was a feature called fast boot that; if I'm correct in my assumption, worked probably somewhat like windows hibernate and just saved ram to disk.

    I don't use the stock rom and probably never will use a sense rom, if I'm right about how that works, is there a separate 768mb partition it used? A partition that's probably doing nothing now? Can /data be expanded into that space?

    Do you know if this partition has a name or mount point?

    Doing an "cat /proc/emmc" and "df -h" i don't see anything that would resemble an 768mb partion being used. Also issuing an basic "mount" i don't see anything out of the ordinary.

    I'm no expert dev but this might be a more suited question for xda.

    I have no idea if there actually is one or not, just guessing as to how it would work. I tried to look with fdisk but couldn't figure out what I was doing.
