Ext-formatted SD Card: same restrictions as FAT?
I've been reading very carefully this article explaining the new policy on SD card access.
Does this imply that permissions will work as described if I format my external SD card in Ext? I.e. would, e.g. ES File Explorer be able to handle files and subfolders in folders it created? I wouldn't mind not being able to read the card on my PC (anyway, wouldn't it be readable through NTP by USB connection?).
If yes, then how do I do that? On my Galaxy S5, if I use "Format SD Card" from the storage settings, I think it will format my "internal" SD card!

Re: Ext-formatted SD Card: same restrictions as FAT?
In theory it doesn't have to be restricted if it uses a different file system, but I think Android treats the SD card the same way regardless of how it's formatted for simplicity and consistency's sake. This is me talking out of my you-know-what, though. I'm just guessing because if it worked, I can't believe we wouldn't have heard about it yet.
