Hello Sailors,

since a couple of update, sfos is able to format the sdcard.
As i understand the supported format is fat which support sdcard until 32gb.

As we could see in many tjc threads.
It is possible to format sdcard with other formatting type like ext4 and btrfs with cli commands.
Great! that seems to be not really complicated too for an app or os functions to be implemented.

The advantages of btrfs and ext4 is the support of much bigger cards than 32gb.
No need to give license fee for it, and works with the mtp interface, if we plug the device on a computer.

Then a suggestion would be to improve the OS function of formatting card to a wider range of format, for a wider range of card capacity.

the sfos gui won't help me to use an 64gb sdcard with ext4 :-(
