Converting from EXT3 to EXT4 - It's possible (and pretty easy)...

8 posts in this topic

I've just compiled a custom kernel with EXT4, converted my partitions to EXT4 and then flashed a modified boot image with the appropriate mounts.

IT WORKS! :D

Literally just done it so too early to say what benefits there are, but there's no denying it's fast! :D

Well, it must be the I/O somehow. Compare it to 2x 2x review by Anandtech, the I/O benchmark went up from 2511 tested by Anand to 3800 in your benchmark! That's a massive leap.
