Hello,
Would the new 128GB MicroSD work on the S3 or would there need to be a software mod or will it not work at all due to hardware limitations?

not sure if the link will post but its available on amazon for $119...

Although I can't guarantee it I would guess it works. My HTC Desire spec said that it only supported up to 32GB but I used a 64GB card fine in it. When it was released 32GB was the largest card available. Same with the S3 in that the 64GB card was the largest at the time.

Theorically could work, as sometimes the limitation is more of the format of the card. For example, I use a 64 GB card in my s3 without problem, and, in other devices, I have read about the format of the card to change this.

For example, the nintendo 3DS can use an SD card of maximum 32 GB, but if you have an sd of 64 GB, but format it as fat 32, you are able to use it.

The only problem is that you'll need a specific tool, if you are using windows, to format cards large than 32GB to use Fat32

It might work. I've seen cheap chinese phones support 32gb so I hope a 128gb should be no problem for the S3. But for $119, it's better (and cheaper) not to risk it.

I went ahead and ordered it through amazon. I'll give you guys a status should I receive one before anyone else reports back...
