Default HTC butterfly (can't copy file larger than 4GB to sd card)

Hi Guys,

Can I get help on how to copy a file larger than 4GB to SD card? I tried to read up and try a lot of stuff but still really lost here. I'm on Virtuous rom.

- I tried to format my card in ext4 but the phone don't recognized it. (I read stock rom don't support ex4)
- I tried to format the card in the device but it didn't work. (I think the phone format the card to FAT32 but not sure as windows just say "generic hierarchical" file system).
- I tried to format the card in NTFS and the phone didn't recognized it.
- Tried to format the card in FAT32 and can't copy the 5gb file because of the 4GB limitation.
- I tried to format my card in exfat but phone don't recognized ( I read that stock kernal don't support exfat).

I think you can only have your card formatted as FAT32 for the phone to recognize it. 4GB is a limitation of FAT32. So that's it, you're stuck with that limit.

It sucks when alot of devices depend on fat32.
