How to increase Android data.img file size (internal phone storage)?

After running Mdeejay eVo Sense Matted Android ROM on my HTC HD2 for months, I discovered that internal phone storage is running low. And I cannot install new applications or games. I found out that I set only 512 MB internal phone storage when I installed this ROM. So I need to increase data.img file size without damage my data in there. How to increase Android data.img file size for HTC HD2?


Yeah… TopoResize comes to rescue. I managed to increase internal phone storage to 1022 MB from 512 MB. Besides resizing, TopoResize can also help to create a totally new data.img file. Now I have another 610 MB extra free internal phone storage. Of course, your SD card needs to have extra free space else TopoResize can’t help you too.

Download TopoResize v0.7.1 here.


  1. Hi Jayce

    Sorry…I have one question. I used Toporesize and resized my phone storage from 512 to 2gb. but when I restart my phone, it still show 512mb and available is only about 100mb. I started the toporesize again it still show internal phone memory available 100MB and but toporesize shows my data.img now is 2gb. any idea?

  7. Hi Jayce,
    I am using NexusHD2-Gingerbread_V3.2a_SD__Android-2.3.7
    I have 248 Internal Memory for use. ( 204 used, 44mb free)

    I re-sized the data.img to 1gb, but when I boot again to android, its same, i do not see any change.
