ext3 support!

Hi all.

I would really like to see ext3 filesystem support in the next firmware release. Since the device already runs Linux, this should not be too hard. If the v5 devkit was somewhere I could find it, I could probably do it myself.

Why ext3 instead of FAT32 ?
FAT32 wastes huge amounts of space on larger SD cards. If you think about wasting as much as 1G of space on an 8G card(if many of your ebooks are plaintext), you really begin to think you might want ext3.


update: I actually did try an ext2/3 formatted SD card in there. No good. The EZ Reader saw that there was an SD card inserted, but could not see files on it.
