    I just ordered a class 10 128gb card but it only supports exfat to take full advantage of the storage.

    I am now reading online that iPad can only support up to 32gb cards and cannot read exfat. Is there a jailbreak workaround to this?

    I got it for such a great deal, if my iPad won't read it, I still might hold onto it for my T2i SLR (what do you think?)

    Anyways, thanks.

    Use two 64gb cards Instead.

    Fat32 you can't transfer files to the SDcard over 5GB in size at a time or 4GB even maybe... can't remember

    With jailbreak, can iFile read SDXC 128's?

    How about Mac OS Journaled if not exFat?

    Would test but I don't have my 128 yet (might just sell it before opening since this was the reason I wanted one, it's a feeler for now) and my CCKit is in the mail... lost mine on a roadtrip without even using it this time :(

    And once that arrives, I can test the partition types on a 32 I have handy.

    EDIT: doesn't read exfat just like any other SD card,

    but my 128 on Mac OS Journaled works :D

    So happy.
