You also need to add "noload" flag, or it will continue to use old journal.

No, it will not check for more space in the journal.  You need to do
"noload, journal=<old journal inum>" to have it re-create the journal.

You can also do "tune2fs -O ^has_journal; e2fsck <dev>; tune2fs -J <new_size>"
to delete and re-create the journal.

Out of curiosity, why do you want a larger journal?
