repartition mod PICOpad GEW 2Gb internal storage
PICOpad GEW model ask me to create mod script for resizing their 512Mb internal storage into 2Gb size so they could install many application on their smartphone.
As usual, many friends of mine who bought this PICOpad GEW model ask me to create mod script for resizing their 512Mb internal storage into 2Gb size so they could install many application on their smartphone. Today, i have time to do this. I want to explain the details but I assure you that it was easier to just do the calculation than to describe it. 🙂 Besides, i think no one will interested with 0x213F20 0xFF99F8DF little endian notation things.
Ok, enough for the boring parts, now time to continue, here is the zip file :

And here is the mod to revert back to original partition scheme :
- This repartition mod is specifically only for PICOpad GEW !!! Only do this mod if you were using ICS stock rom from axioo or my custom rom. DO NOT attempt to use this mod on other device, it will crash your device.
Check your current OS Build Number version first before doing this, Go to Settings -> About -> Build Number PICOpad_GEW_0.0x_B08_xxx
- You CANNOT repartition the Picopad GEW with axioo jelly bean stock rom into 2Gb internal storage with this script!
This is for axioo ics stock rom or my custom rom only.
- Read this thoroughly :
Your warranty is now void !!!
I am not responsible if you brick your phone, get stuck in a bootloop, or if your phone grows arms and tries to kill you. Flash at your own risk!
Please do some research if you have any concerns about risk of flashing a custom mod before continuing! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you!!
If you have any other objection, don’t bother to comment, just close this page!
How to use :
- Download and copy the zip file to your external sdcard
- Backup the content of the phone storage into your computer!! We will format this partition later.
- Reboot into CWM recovery
- Backup your system using nandroid backup !!
- Install the zip file
- Go to Mount and storage, and format /cache and /data
- Reboot the system
The first boot will take a little longer since the OS needs to populate again the new data partition after we formated them. After boot completed, go to Settings page, and select Storage, and you will see your internal storage will resize to 2.11Gb :
If you still cannot see the 2Gb internal storage, no worry … somehow the system still sees the old partition, just go back to CWM recovery and wipe data / factory reset, the second time you boot completely, they will appear as 2Gb size.
If everything ok, then scroll to bottom and select Erase Phone Storage (we need to do this so the emmc phone usb storage will accept the new size) :
Enjoy extra large space on your PICOpad GEW !!

Axioo Jelly Bean stock rom using different partition entries than their older ICS stock rom or my custom rom. Rather than using 512Mb system + 512Mb internal storage + 2Gb Phone Storage, they use 1Gb system +1Gb internal storage and 1Gb Phone Storage scheme. Thus, to create 2Gb internal storage on this axioo Stock Jelly Bean ROM, use this scripts :
