i've seen someone using new sandisk 128gb, works fine on our device, he just had to reformat it



edit:

To install custom roms on O4x:

1. upgrade to jb
2. root
3. unlock bootloader
4. flash custom recovery (cwm)
5. flash roms
6. if you encounter any issues, search, they've been answered already.

Got issues with RIL/IMEI/BASEBAND on custom 4.2, 4.3 or 4.4 ROMs on p880? Click me for possible solution!

Thanks for your answer.

I read somewhere - don't remember where unfortunately, that SD Cards above 32GB (SDXC?) needs to be formated in FAT32. Is that what you mean? I've heard too, that some custom ROMs requires some other SD Card partition - extSD or something. Then when I'll format new card in FAT32 is it still possible to flash custom ROMs and will they handle this card?


Thanks in advance for your answer

i think that fat32 format will work for sure both on stock and on custom roms, but exfat needs additional drivers which are not present for stock, so will only work on (most) custom roms.
