I have 64gb microsd card in Sony Sailfish X. I formatted the card to ext4, mkfs.ext4 then changed owner to nemo and Sailfish X recognises the card, camera saves photos to the card etc.

However, do I need worry about ext4 journalling on the microsd card? What are others doing when using ext4 on a memory card? Just formatting like me? Or delving in tune4fs? has_journal etc?

Having microSD cards here formatted as ext4 for some arm notebooks. Works just fine with journal activated.

I have been using ext4 formatted SD cards since jolla1 without problems. I used a simple formatting no tune4fs.
