Do Not Format Android External Storage

Anything but vfat! If you do Android will not mount any of your external storage and consequently any apps on York sdcard will be unusable until you reformat the offending card, which could actually be internal, back to vfat fs. Unfortunately busybox mkdosfs is broken so the only way to do this without advanced is to use newfs_msdos which just works. This means that you will never be able to make hard or symbolic links from or on your sdcard.
