Hello Ayyappan91,



Thank you for interest in the Intel® Edison Breakout Board.



From what I have investigated, it seems that the two most popular methods to increase the size of the rootfs are presented in this documents:

I noticed you opened another thread, Pedro M helped you with the first method, and that he is also guiding you with the image building process.
