    Can the SD card be repartitioned and formatted to ext?

    I would like to repartition and format the SD card. I saw other posts about this, but no answers were given.

    The current partitioning looks odd to me.

    I ran mount to see what was mounted to sdcard:
    Code:
    $ mount | grep "/mnt/sdcard\ "
    /dev/block/vold/179:1 /mnt/sdcard vfat rw,dirsync,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,uid=1000,gid=1015,fmask=0702,dmask=0702,allow_utime=0020,codepage=cp437,iocharset=iso8859-1,shortname=mixed,utf8,errors=remount-ro 0 0
    Then I ran fdisk to see what was partioned:
    Code:
    $ su -c "fdisk -l /dev/block/vold/179:1"
    
    Disk /dev/block/vold/179:1: 989 MB, 989593600 bytes
    4 heads, 32 sectors/track, 15100 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 128 * 512 = 65536 bytes
    
                     Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks  Id System
    This looks odd to me.
    I have read posts that refer to mmcblk0 so I tried this:
    Code:
    $ su -c "fdisk -l /dev/block/mmcblk0"
    
    Disk /dev/block/mmcblk0: 990 MB, 990642176 bytes
    256 heads, 63 sectors/track, 119 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16128 * 512 = 8257536 bytes
    
                  Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks  Id System
    /dev/block/mmcblk0p1   *           1         120      966400   c Win95 FAT32 (LBA)
    Partition 1 has different physical/logical beginnings (non-Linux?):
         phys=(1023, 255, 63) logical=(0, 32, 33)
    Partition 1 has different physical/logical endings:
         phys=(1023, 255, 63) logical=(119, 247, 55)
    this looks more like what I am expecting to see.

    If I delete the partitions, can I create one ext partition using the whole 4GB?
    Are the auto mounting operations still going to work?

    Thank you.

    Regards,
    Brian

    Curious of this myself, I just recently flashed to Sc0red ROM and aside from the various vm, kernel, memory tweaks available (Sucks that no overclocking on the Score. :-/) I'm interested in making the microSD more efficient as well...

    Oh, and as an aside: while it IS deodexed, the only customization I've been able to make since flashing Sc0Red is changing the Boot Animation within ROM Toolbox. I thought Themes and the like were also possible with a deodexed ROM??
