Re: Sprint Galaxy S3
IDK. All you do is burn it to a CD or write it to a USB stick, turn the computer off, put the USB stick in or leave the CD in the drive, turn the computer back on, let it boot from the stick or CD, open the GParted program when the computer is done booting (IIRC, it's an icon on the desktop, so you won't be hunting for it), and partition/format the drive. And all the instructions are on the website to which I linked. Really, depending on your download speed, downloading GParted will probably be the most time-consuming part.

Why would you not want to use a tool made specifically for the job you're trying to do? If there were any way to make Windows recognize and/or format an ext4 drive, I would suggest that, but there isn't, so GParted is the best bet here. I suppose you could use SystemRescueCD, but then I'd have to explain the difference between 10 different boot options. You could actually use any distribution with a live version, but GParted is probably the easiest solution, barring the discovery of an Android app.
