Hopefully better than it can format ext 2 and 3.

Personally I find this software shocking. Professionally, I wouldn't even partition FAT or NTFS with it, let alone ext.

Gparted all the way for ext

I've tried it a few times and the failure rate was very poor. Appeared to work and everything looked ok, until phone doesn't boot.

Works for some not for others.

If you truly must use windows, easeus is better but no ext 4 support yet, but as ext is not a windows format, gparted will always be the best.

Wipe it first, then click on format in the top bar, choose your file system type, then hit apply. (This will delete all data, back it up.)
