    Yeah that's ok system data is being stored through SD card. What does the Filesystem/System say on pixel 4 ? Rooted ?

    Ext4
    Puzzling wonder why my filesystem/Data is covered Ext4 though rootfs access to filesystem/system gives privileges to do what the hell you want. Ideas ??? Not all lot of info around and no computer ATM.

    Ok so internal storage can be titled SdcardFfs,How come on the pixel 4 xl you only got 50gb system file data space ?

    It's correct its running from file rootfs,Could just be the kernel code to run the System. Might have to plug in have a look.

    True true,Pixels need something like Knox make it a lot better avoid this. It's frustrating cause my notifications keep getting deleted,Which is a option for us but not as a slave or end user. System probs responsible still though worth a probe !!

    The new pixels are pretty secure they have a stand alone chip called Titan

    I thinks this is all normal. With the Pixel 3, Google changed from using EXT4 to F2FS, which is more secure: https://www.anandtech.com/show/13474...xel-3-review/2

    I suspect rootfs is simply what they called the system storage filesystem prior to this change.

    EDIT: Actually, I'm trying to figure out if rootfs appears only if the phone is rooted. You said you didn't, but where did you get this phone from? Is it possible the prior owner may have rooted it? Have you tried running a root check app?

    Seems like it's needed for postmarket OS installation: https://wiki.postmarketos.org/index....le_view_mobile

    Ok yeah I read about that it's developed by google,In all pixels from 3 I believe isn't it ? New device time maybe.
