resize2fs not works @ startup

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Hello dears
I have newly downloaded the "nanopi-duo_FriendlyCore-Xenial_4.14.0_20171208" image and wrote it on a 8G micro SD but "resize2fs" don't increase the partition size at start up. Older images do this automatically once @ system startup.

How can I solve this problem ?

After a long search I found that resize2fs works only 1 time after burning the primary image.
you could do that with fdisk and resize2fs.
You should write down the start-sector, delete the partition, create a new bigger partition, set boot flag
and then resize2fs....

I only did found the instructions in german:

but already used it on nano pi and orange pi
