Talking UPDATE: 64GB micro SDXC card DOES work in LG Optimus 2x

Hi,

I tested 64GB mircro SDXC in my LG 2x (Modaco rom Gr6 and HP 2x kernel RC12-R) and it DOES NOT work

I was able to format the card to FAT32 in the phone, but when I try to mount it, the phone restarts itself.

If anyone else has different experience, please share.

BTW the card is SDSDQY-064G-U46A

UPDATE:

I managed to fix it. I'm not sure which steps were actually necessary but just to be sure I list them all.
First I tried NicomUA's idea of splitting the patritions in two 32GB. For that I used Paragon Partition Manager 11 Free. And IT WORKED! I made two partitions. I was able to access the first one in the phone, but I could not format or edit the second one neither in the PPM anymore.
So I used SDFormatter 3.1 and reformated the card into its original state with option "Format size adjustment".
Then I checked the partition structure again in PPM. It was exFAT, but with 16MB free space at the beginning.
I formated it to FAT 32 and resized it to 32GB (Now I made only one partition and left the rest of the space unallocated). It worked in the phone.
So I tried to resize the partion to see how far I can go. 32GB worked in my phone. 33GB worked in my phone! And suddenly whole 64GB worked in my phone!!!
I filled the card with movies and music to the max and tested if I can really access the content and YES, I was able to play anything on the card!

Officially, the limit is 32gb. I've seen mods that enable sd cards with higher capacity than the official limit on other phones, but sadly, I don't think there's one yet for the 2x.

yeah, exactly what the other users said on above posts. i also tried it a week ago, in cyanogenmod 9 and it does not detect the sd card (no reboot happened to me, simply doesn't detect it). Let's hope someone release a mod soon for this... 32 gb is nothing... :|

Well I thought it was plenty big, until my SD got almost full of videos and nandroid backups

Backups suck, mine are 1.2gb each.

Try to make one 31Gb(or less then 32Gb) partition on SD card. It can start work.

Default Not made for SCXC

i dont think making 2 partition will work ,the SD card reader is made for SHHC (high capacity ) not for SDXC (Xtrem capactity ) ,so i thing it's a hardware problem
