Look on your storage at setting , how many internal storage you have and how many phone storage you have? When your phone storage just only couple of mega then you already successfull reparted your internal storage

are you sure you did all process, look at ROM process section. are you do the step number 3 ? if you not do the step number 3 then is same you flash lenovo s920 stock rom to your device, nothing change. but if you do the step 3 it arrange the partition to make you have bigger internal memory.

can you install using zip? are you already have custom recovery or still stock recovery ? i will give you gapps but you must install it from custom recovery.
try this gapps and flash from custom recovery, but first backup your current rom first

If you click on no then it system install stock recovery again but if you click yes the cwm still on your system. If you follow this guide your external memory will be vanish cuse the size it add to internal memory. But not your sd card, i means true sd card not external memory act like sdcard.

Reply to  Raunak Goyal

If you choose yes it will disable the system to flash stock recovery to your system again. Just check on android system settings and go to storage menu this will list all your available storage and capacity too

Then you must configure your default write disk choose sd card. Go to system setting and storage choose sd card for default write disk. Yes you must download another software

Hi normaliza,

If you wanna to delete unwanted applications first you need to root you phone, look a guide on how to root lenovo s920, after root you free to modified your system include remove un wanted applications. For easy to do that use root explorer look at google play. This application is like explorer in windows so you free to navigate to system folder and remove un wantes applications. I hope you clear enought
