Will the Nexus ditch rfs?
I read somewhere (forget where) that Samsung will go with ext file system on this phone.
Can anyone confirm or deny this?
The 2 Samsung phones I have owned, and as I understand every other Samsung device, you had to change the filesystem to ext from rfs via a voodoo lagfix kernel to get decent performance. Will be glad if they do away with rfs from the get go.

I don't think Samsung has used rfs on any of its newer devices. I know the GT10.1 doesn't, and I'd be surprised if the S2 series did.
Regardless, the GNex will use ext4 for a few reasons: one, it's Google's default Android filesystem (yes, the Nexus S had ext4 too), and I'm pretty sure that Honeycomb and above devices require ext4 simply because of the way they handle storage and mounting now.

Thanks guys. I thought Samsung slapped rfs onto all their phones. It's on my charge.
But with the nexus s not having it its for sure the GN won't. Was getting tired of hearing the voodoo lady.
Back to the waiting game ;-)
