    changing filesystem of N1

    there is a thread of changing filesystem of Samsung Galaxy Spica: I/O Performance boost - Migrate your Spica to EXT2

    my questions are:

    1. is there a possibility of changing filesystem of N1?

    2. if so, what could be benefits of this operation? (i. e. faster boot, faster apps start etc.)

    3. if so, would it be safe for the phone and how could it affect battery life?

    Same answer you got on xda I'm afraid. There is no advantage to doing this on the Nexus...

    OK, well, here's my (very limited) understanding...
    The Nexus One was released with a YAFFS file system, but I believe Google switched to EXT4 with Android 2.3 (which most Nexus Ones now run)...

    Now, tell me the benefits of your proposal?

    i'm not familiar with all this stuff, and i can only repeat ones from samdroid net:

    "- Faster boot
    - Faster application start(If they are stored on the internal memory, e.g. Phone app)
    - Faster loading of contacts/messages/everything stored on internal memory
    - Higher quadrant score :P"

    i can maybe add:
    - safety of data (?)

    but on the other side - if i've moved apps to sd card with DT script, there will be only few apps in the internal memory (widgets and so on). so it may does not make sense.

    Yes, that is for the Spica, but since the N1 already runs EXT4, you already have the speed and performance advantages...

    As far as moving apps to SD with DT, the EXT4 FS should work faster, but the transfer speed between the SD interface is the slow link (hardware)...

    i agree with you.

    i've told to c0d3nam3jack earlier, that i was just curious. and i've also read on MoDaCo site about rooting LG 2X and there was written about the script changing filesystem to ext4 (probably), so I wondered about N1.
