Default [Q] Micro SD Card Compatibility?

I have a T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S4 (jfltetmo) running Liquid ROM v2.37 and I was wondering if this ROM is compatible with a 16 or 32GB Micro SD Card, or do I have to format it in a certain way?

That's what they said before World War 2. But someone in Europe just HAD to try out that bigger vacuum tube in his punch card machine.....
Do you want insanely better battery drain when your phone is idle? Check out this thread!

It should work just fine but just to be sure it would be best to format
the 16 or 32GB card using a windows utiliity which formats in fat32.
That way you will never have any issues or problems with it.

Here is the direct download link for the fat32 formatter:

Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).

Yes even 64 GB - some roms l;ike Wicked which I have I noticed the SD card needs to be formatted in fat-32 not the standard out of the box format. Then it works fine.

Go to the Play store and search APARTED I use it and it formats in fat-32 super fast and easy! You can even use that program to partition it. I was on Wicked V8 (4.2 Android) using a 5 gig partition and links-2sd to move all apps and data to the external SD. Now when I re-do the phone to V9 (4.3 android) if It has Apps 2-SD which it should, I will still partition and see if I can't get all the apps on a certain partition and my stuff on another

So long story short yes will work. Any issues like won't mount aka not showing in storage - external storage - just get APARTED from google play and use it to format the SD card in FAT32
