    It seems like, with the Broken Out ROM, there's a lot of free space in the /system partition:

    Code (Text):
    1. # df /system
    2. Filesystem             Size   Used   Free   Blksize
    3. /system                420M   178M   241M   4096
    So is there any way to utilize that free space? Seems like it's just going to waste. The storage space on the breakout is very limited, so making the /data partition larger and the /system partition smaller would be helpful for installing more apps. Anyone know how to do this?

    I use link2sd to move some of my app to the system partition. You want.to check each app for.functionality after the move, and some will need a reboot to work after the move.

    This app also lets you use an ext3 partition on you sd card as additional faked internal storage by sym-linking files out.of the internal.storage to the partition on the sd card. It is a vary usful app for tooted phone with limited internal storage like the breakout.
