    Yaffs2, because of the type of storage we have. Higher end devices have emmc and use "normal" file systems. We have mtd and need a fs that handles lower level stuff like wear leveling.

    Hmm so then is any way to make it use emmc or is that a hardware perquisite for ext4.

    I didn't look it up, but based on context, it looks like emmc is a type of memory.

    A friend of mine has the intercept and converted his internals to ext4 with a custom recovery he has. I'm sure the intercept isn't higher end then the OV but am i to assume it has better internal memory then we have?
