After offering us ‘exFAT’ in Android 13 with kernel 5.10, Google plus now seems to be preparing ‘NTFS’ support with Linux kernel 5.15 and Android 14.
It’s still a chimera to speak of Android 14and that data such as landing a at the beginning beta would exist i second quarter of next year 2023.
Be it as it may Part of the story they solve in Mountain View for the fourteenth iteration of its mobile platform, already available in ticket form Free Android open source projectso like buddies the habitual Mishaal Rahman they are already busy to tell us everything important around Android U
And in this case originality is very important, because apparently after native support a ‘exFAT’At Google plus, they would work to offer the possibility of mounting on Android Storage units formatted with NTFS.
Right here you have the entry in the The AOSP website if you want to follow up, although we have now where the novelties would be and where the limits would bethere will be for sure.
First of all, it should be remembered Android 13 with Linux kernel 5.10 and later already applied to the possibility native use of the archivo system ‘exFAT’at least 13 years after shipment.
This compatibility is strictly limited to Linux kernel 5.10 and this is the main disadvantage because Mobile devices typically do not replace or upgrade their Linux kernels out of the boxalthough Android versions are updated with important updates.
So just them mobile phone, mobile phone made by google plus past generationsthe Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro as well some others exhibit from different manufacturers As with the Samsung Galaxy S family, they will enjoy this advanced archivo system.
Regarding NTFSthis is the first Microsoft never opened this format officially Linux kernel 5.15 and higher use a controller open-source by Paragon Programa have full read and write support for this type of archivo system.
The limitation would be identical as it would be tied to kernel 5.15, although the improvement is very important for this continuity between the Windows PC and the Android móvil that they could therefore install the same storage units regardless of the format and without additional problems.
of course we are before the first stages of this innate compatibilitysince Google plus would still have to develop the service (or demon) would be responsible for adjusting the different amounts of memory, although that would be nice to see They are already working on it with Android 14 on the horizon and in sight.
Very good news, although ‘exFAT’ is more widespread!
