why are there different images based on sd card size?
Theoretically the /data partition on the dd images can be expanded since it is behind all the other ones. Practically the partition layout has overlapping definitions as I pointed out in http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=1834 . I managed to resize the /data partition to the full size, but you have to use low-level tools like sfdisk since all the more user-friendly ones don't operate on partition tables with overlapping partitions. Maybe this can be somehow fixed in the build config of the Android SDK?

The Phoenixcard images are expanded on the fly to the full card size, but they require a tool that basically runs only on Windows and doesn't always work for everyone...
