Update 11.04.2013: Data Resize partition to 2.74GB Detailed description from here

1. We backup with recovery. 
2. Unloaded and 2.74GB decompressed data (Thx to spanish friends! ). 
3. SP Open Flashtool and as we have done before installing the recovery in scatter-loading MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc.txt select the file in the folder where we unzipped 2.74GB Data 
4. We ensure that only EBR1 and EBR2 are marked. 
5. We Give to Download, accept the prompt, connect via USB the phone off the PC. As with the recovery if the process fails, disconnect the cable, remove and put the battery and repeat this step. 
6. If all goes well, will back the green circle. Disconnect the phone from the PC. 
7. Now we go back to recovery (Turn on the phone by holding the power key + volume +). 
8. In the recovery do wipe data / factory reset. 
9. Optionally if you want to restore the data and installed applications we advance restore, choose the backup you made ​​in step 1, and finally we give to Restore data. 
10. Reboot from recovery. In this first boot after repartitioning we may see a notification saying the phone storage is damaged, then click in it. It will show a dialog box asking if you want to format the SD card, does not refer to the External SD but the phone's internal memory, so we do not fear clicking on Format. After doing the latter, voila, you have the Data partition (where apps are installed) extended to 2.74GB
