For the Android system you should not need to modify any partitions.
But you will need to make a small configuration patch in order to use the entire card space.
The PhoenixCard program should automatically split your SD card up into suitable partitions, one of which will be used for simulated "Internal Flash" of the system. (This Android firmware was 'lifted' from an Android tablet, using internal flash memory plus an external SD card.)
Another partition of the card will always remain used for the initial boot of the Banana Pi (the boot that comes before Android).
A large partition of the card (12.62GB of my 16GB card) is intended for use as the normal "/sdcard" area, but is incorrectly mounted in the current release image. I found a way to modify a configuration file so as to mount this partition correctly to "/mnt/sdcard" (also linked as "/sdcard"), and this modification is quite simple to make after installing the official release image.
Another user called "mattrix" has released an alternate Android image, which you can install instead of the official release.
If you already have installed and configured apps in your Banana Pi, then it may be best for you to make the patch like I did it, but if you haven't installed apps or changed configs yet, then it may be better for you to reinstall mattrix's alternate image instead.
You reach the post about my patch through this link.
