Default [Q] [PROBLEM] Searching for a kernel with 64 GB SD support

Hi. Please advise on my problem as follows.

I have an LG-P880 running Android 4.4.2 with LiquidSmooth LS-KK-v3.0-2014-02-12, Kernel: 3.1.10-CM+(2014-102-12).
Recently, I bought Sandisk Ultra 64 GB microSDXC I. I format it in Windows into FAT 32, insert in the phone slot, the phone says "SD card is blank or has unsupported filesystem". Format? - I press OK. It shows "Erasing" for about 3 minutes and then reboots itself. On reboot, it says "sd card is damaged try reformatting it". I take it out, connect to PC - card is unreadable, even checkdisk freezes. I connect it to Mac - Disk Utility (probably the best way to fix unreadable cards) - Erase, Verify, Repair - format under exFAT. Test read/write - works fine; try in Windows - works fine. I put it back into the phone, I get on of the above messages, then it reboots and goes on like this forever... And I have to go through the same steps for it to make it readable again.
Next step: The card is freshly formatted (tried both exFAT and FAT 32), Reboot in Recovery (CWM latest version) -> mounts & storage -> format -> "cannot mount SD card... Skipping format".
So, I've pretty much tried all options. My previous SD was 16 GB, never had problems, so exclude slot/hardware issues.

I searched for similar problems and it's mostly only 2 solutions:
  1. Try a different card, cause not all of them can be read by a phone, although work on PC.
  2. Kernel does not support SD cards over 16/32 GB.

I don't have a chance to try other cards, as this is the only one I have and I ordered it by post. It works on computers - so no warranty condition for exchange. Therefore, my question is
  • Can somebody confirm a kernel version which supports this type of card, tested, with a direct link please?
  • As I've never updated kernel separately before, will all my settings remain or will I need to do a factory reset afterwards?

Thank you in advance!

I had nearly the same problems with a Sandisk 64 GB card. I send it back. Now I have a Samsung one.

I think your ultra microsdxc card is not supportable with p880
