    I've got an Aishuo A816, I'm little disappointed that the internal memory for programs which is only 140Mb, and it's already used up to 60Mb from the standard firmware setup programs.

    I was looking at ways to increase such memory, before starting to install programs to the FAT32 partion of the same card.. I've read there are some disadvantages :\ (eg loose chmod settings..).

    So, I've opened my tablet, popped the card into a reader and got this:

    First: there are 200Mb (!) unpartitioned, why?

    Second, there are 3x 200Mb partitions, I think same linux filesystem, I'll boot later Parted Magic 6.1 from a liveCD to take a better look.

    So, having the memory of my tablet at my disposal is there a guide/procedure that I can follow and increase the partition to install system files? can you point my some guide, info? searching through the forum I was unable to find some kind of handy information..

    Before anything I'll do an image of it, it may comes handy :)

    My tablet has a Bena board 8306, Gingerbread 2.3.1, build: 20110521_105050

    P.S. Being in the need to root it.. would be possible to inject some files inside the file system?

    Just to let you know, I succesfully increased the program partition to about 700mb and injected into the filesystem the SU command with permissions set to 4755 - I would say, a manual root procedure :)
