HIT NEXT

now a slider will appear where it says new volume….

move the slider with the mouse, and make it how big you want it.. for ext2 partiiton about 500mb to 1gb is plenty…

500mb is good size.. ( size wont be exact so get it close to the size you want)..

once complete you will get a pop up saying SYSTEM

RESTART IS REQUIRED TO COMPLETE OPERATION.. CHOSE RESTART THE COMPUTER…

You will see a paragon manager screen, that will hang for a almost a minute, and then the bar will fill saying 100 percent complete, press any key to reboot the pc..

AS LONG AS THERE ARE NO ERRORS, YOUR DONE..

  1. is there a free version? im using 10 and i have to buy it to format a partition, im still at the first step. if you know of a keygen or something that would be nice. email me if you can. thanks for the tut.

    • no there is no free version but you can get a trial version.. or download ubuntu and try it out..

  2. I finaly got it to work what I did differnt this 100th time I changed the permissions on the sd card while it was one whole fat32 parition gave it full control read and write then rebooted the phone right after the partitions got done and after the pc rebooted. Did $ busybox df -h And WOW finally system/sd/app was ******* there. If you don’t get the 1st or 80th time don’t give up and u will figure it out!

    • i will add the comments about using Windows Vista and changing permissions… I use XP so i dont have to do that

  3. i need major help! i messed up my entire ms. i tried repartitioning it back to fat32 from split partitions. and now my fone or comp cant recognize it. so if you can help me out email me. i will try keep partitioning my ms.

    • i fixed it.

    • After u partition a sd card with ext2 parttion on vista 1st before u partition it change permissions of card to full control. * Important when u put a freshly partitioned sd card in ur phone for the first time if the phone does not see the card or the ext2 partition leave card in phone and reboot ur phone. Once rebooted the phone will see the partition. But make sure by busybox df -h and check to see if system/sd is there.
