    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.

    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.
