Having recently searched and found the solution for re-sizing your root filesystem size on a Raspberry pi under Arch Linux I discovered the following instructions to work:

As root:

fdisk /dev/mmcblk0

Delete the second partition /dev/mmcblk0p2
d
2

Create a new primary partition and use default sizes prompted. This will then create a partiton that fills the disk
n
p
2
enter
enter

Save and exit fdisk:
w

Now reboot. Once rebooted:
resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p2

Your main / partition should be the full size of the disk now.
