Motorola Defy Gains New Life with Repartition

Motorola Defy Gains New Life with Repartition

The Motorola Defy was released approximately four years ago back in the early Fall of 2010. While the device was never quite intended to be a flagship-level device, it certainly gained quite a loyal following of fans who have stuck by this diminutive device through the years.

Despite the community support and love, the Motorola Defy has run into serious limitations when trying to load new versions of Android due to its small storage size. Luckily, this is again where the community shines. XDA Recognized Developer Quarx created a repartition script that is able to reallocate storage space allotted to the /system partition in order to provide more space for newer Android versions such as KitKat. What’s more, this was all accomplished despite the Defy having a locked bootloader. Now, users are able to better appropriate their NAND storage space and load KitKat entirely on internal storage rather than using an external SD Card.

If you’re still using a Motorola Defy and you’d like to be able to load larger ROMs on internal storage, today’s your lucky day. Head over to the Motorola Defy repartitioning post to learn more.
