I managed to compile fuse.ko and ntfs-3g (as a static binary, so no need to worry about dependencies). An sdcard formatted as NTFS can be mounted like this (assuming fuse.ko is in /sdcard/modules/ and ntfs-3g is in /system/bin/):
Code:
insmod /sdcard/modules/fuse.ko
ntfs-3g /dev/block/mmcblk1p1 /mnt/sdcard/external_sd
After these commands, go into Settings -> Storage -> Connect SD Card.

I was able to copy a 6.82GB .MKV to my external sdcard and it plays fine in mVideoPlayer :D

I compiled ntfs-3g (using CodeSourcery G++ Lite 2009q3-67) like this:
Code:
./configure --enable-really-static -host=arm-none-linux-gnueabi
make
Unfortunately I don't have a suitable USB cable and/or external hard drive, but I assume it should also work.

I guess some work needs to be done to make this easier, and I'm not sure I fully trust this to not corrupt my data, but it's a start and it seems to work :D

As usual, use this at your own risk, I am not responsible for any damage to your phone and/or data!

EDIT: I currently use GScript Lite to run the included shell script and mount the sdcard. Should be possible to run something similar on boot if you have a kernel that supports it (I am staying with stock kernel for now).

Thanks it works for usb with:

insmod /sdcard/modules/fuse.ko
ntfs-3g /dev/block/mmcblk1p1 /mnt/sdcard/usb


Thanks again

Here is the latest version (2012.1.15) of ntfs-3g (Changelog)

- compiled as described by jps1974 (so all credits to him)!

Hi shardul,

many thanks for your effort to compile latest ntfs-3g version. I'm recently used Version 2011.1.15 (January 23, 2011) compiled by farazite (http://www.slatedroid.com/topic/128...ndroid-tablet/page__view__findpost__p__132794). But this version is much more smaller than yours (only 362,865 Bytes). Maybe you haven't stripped off debug information.

Cheers,
Chr!s

    This is how i get an external NTFS USB Drive to work,
    maybe it will help some people ;) :

    Download the new compiled fuse.ko and ntfs-3g from jps1974 (this Post) extract those files to:
    create the Folder /sdcard/modules
    copy fuse.ko in /sdcard/modules
    copy ntfs-3g in /system/bin (I use Supermanager with System R/W for this)
    create the Folder /sdcard/usb

    Now everytime you connect an USB Device you have to enter following commands in the terminal:
    (ignore the upcoming warning while plugging in "usb device not recognized" and dont tap on it!)
    Code:
    su
    insmod /sdcard/modules/fuse.ko
    ntfs-3g /dev/block/sda1 /mnt/sdcard/usb
    Now you can access the Files in an Filemanager of your choice at /sdcard/usb

    Before unpluging the USB, make sure you unmount it with following command:
    Code:
    umount /mnt/sdcard/usb

    Load this module with insmod, I compiled that and tested with KE7 kernel. Here is the post about my test with an 250G external HD over OTG using NTFS. (And I assume you can read Chinese. :) )

    Atm, SGS2 is the best Android phone imo. And it's really pity that we can't play a full one-part 1080p HD movie (>4Gb files) with this beast, especially on a TV full HD via MHL cable :mad: I think we have already root, some custom roms as well as some custom kernels, we will have soon CyanogenMod too,... But I wonder if there will be a way to make this dream phone support the NTFS or exFAT. I've searched alot and found this "ASUS Selects Tuxera File System Software for Eee Pad™ Tablets" http://www.tuxera.com/news/asus-selects-tuxera-file-system-software-for-eee-pad™-tablets/ so the Eee Pad Tablets (Android system) can support perfectly the NTFS via the Tuxera file system software (the homepage: http://www.tuxera.com). And I found this also "Tuxera Merges and Updates NTFS Open Source Projects" http://www.tuxera.com/news/tuxera-m...e-cross-platform-ntfs-package-as-open-source/ and the source http://ntfs-3g.git.sourceforge.net

    I haven't the knowledge to do anything about that, but I hope someone could do it and SGS2 will really be the beast ;)

    Will there be any advantage of NTFS over present file system ? its more safer in terms of security I hope. I support ext 4, as its easy for android to recognize & link with linux....

    I'm sure some devs are definitely interested in it.you may also put a word to CM7 developers pls....
