How to Install CM13/Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow ROM on Galaxy S2! [RePartition]

For those of you who want to upgrade your Galaxy S2 GT-i9100 to CM13 or any Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow ROM, you will need to repartition your system partition so you can install it correctly.

Marshmallow ROMs require minimum of 1GB of system partition while the Galaxy S2 defaults to 500MB.  To do this, it’s pretty simple to do, you just need to install repartitioning zip file using latest TWRP recovery.
