Hey there. Flashing worked and my new Sony Xperia X is ready. Now the question is: Which micro-SD-card should I buy?

  • Does the device with SFOS support SDXC?
  • Whats with UHS-1 or 2?
  • What is the maximum size of the card, which is supported?
  • And what is the biggest you have in use?

Got this one for 40 EUR here in Germany:

Works as expected, with shared space for Sailfish OS and Android apps, see here.

I use a SanDisk Extreme 64GB (SDXC, UHS-I, CL.10, U3, V30, A1) formatted to FAT32 as a single volume - just for media in SFOS. Works like a charm.

using SanDisk 200 GB. bit of mucking around to mount & get working, but is in now.

I'd like to install straight to it - so I'll keep learning

I'm also using a Sandisk 200GB card, Ultra A1 microSDXC and UHS-I. For formatting to FAT 32 I had to use this program: The other tools that I used before for my older cards did not work...

I'm using a Samsung ProEvo+ (not "plus", but "+"-sign) with 256GB, formatted externally to Ext4, with same conf. as @ziellos

SDXC is formated in exFAT which is not supported because of a license involved. See interesting documentation in jolla.zendesk for more details.

So I've formatted my 64GB SDXC to ext4 on a laptop. It mounts automatically and shows photos in gallery and plays multimedia but it seems that at least some apps (Camera, Backup) can't write to it despite rw mount.

Somehow the folder permissions were not set up properly after I formatted my sdcard to ext4.

chown -R nemo:nemo /media/sdcard/[uuid]

worked for me. Don't know if it persists after a boot. That precious uptime...

Thanks. It seems it does.

I tried with F2FS but it didn't go well. It stopped responding and restarted when I wanted to configure the Camera storage.
