    Most Android phones run in memory anyhow, 512MB if you're lucky to have a phone with that much space in memory.

    2-16GB file systems are better off with Fat32. Due to copywrite problems they possibly be better off with ext2.

    1. barrier=0 or barrier=1 ?

    2. Does Android write data to the file system like Tso says it should?

    3. fsck.ext4 included in the tools?

    * When will we get a proper task-killer from G0ogle?
    You obviously don't understand filesystems, different memories and operating systems in general "Android run in memory" (so naive)

      I think it's rather your sentence (used in such a broad way) that makes no sense.

      And btw, especially Ext4 has a "no journal mode", no need to go back to the old Ext2.

        Now if only the drivers where more modular:
        "and updated OpenGL ES graphics drivers"
        Tying drivers with OS upgrades is dumb people.

        (I know updated base drivers is good.
        But the thing is that this is a sign of drivers being bound to certani OS upgrades.)

          The GL drivers for most android devices are 100% proprietary, not part of AOSP. If they have updated the GL drivers, they are referring to the software rendering.
