You can use Meta-Doctor to create a ext3 fs carved out of the space that is used for the vfat LVM partition. 
 
 
 
The Option is:
 
EXT3FS_PARTITION_SIZE
 
 
 
With that option you can specify the size of the partition
 
 
 
EXT3FS_PARTITION_SIZE  = 2GB
 
 
 
for a 2GB partition.
 
 
 
When you Doctor the phone you will have a partition that is located at
 
 
 
/media/ext3fs
 
 
 
on device /dev/store/ext3fs (lvm partition)
 
 
 
==Loop mount a partition on existing partitions==
 
 
 
It is NOT recommended that you loop mount on top of a vfat partition (unless you use a fuseFS) because of attribute issues.
 
 
 
With Meta-Doctor you can increase the size of the /Var partition as well
 
 
 
The Option is:
 
 
 
VAR_PARTITION_SIZE  = 2GB
 
 
 
It increases the size of /var to 2GB 
 
 
 
Realize that you will be vying for space with any Preware apps, emails, and attachments.
