Can Rockbox recognise MicroSD cards larger than 32GB?

bahus Thanks for the link to the fat32 formatter I'll start pointing people there if it works well

Out of curiosity, which "russian X3 port" are you using, and why are you using that instead of what's available from rockbox.org?

I got my X3 as a secondhand player from my dad in 2017 - he'd bought it in 2015 and had quickly installed the main then-compiled version of Rockbox, which was an unofficial port developed by (based on the site URL and bilingual language) a Russian person:

http://xvtx.ru/rockbox/

Since then, there has been an official port developed, and I managed to find a compiled copy of it a couple of years back and installed it, though it later became corrupt after about 6 months (I find Rockbox, despite delivering great audio quality, can require a reinstall every 6 months to a year or so) and I couldn't go through the process of finding that specific version again, so I reinstalled the XVTX one.

It sounds like the X3 will be supported in the next Rockbox installer release, but until then, do you know where I can get a compiled version of the "official" (rather than the older and slightly buggy XVTX) version of Rockbox for the X3? I looked on its dedicated page here but from what I could see couldn't find it, only the uncompiled code. It's best that someone corrects me if I'm wrong on that.

I think the unofficial firmware version, which also supports the X3II among other Xduoo devices, should actually be called the Vortex version, looking at the site further.

Binary devel builds for the X3 have been generated for about two years now.  This page always links to a build of the latest commit:

  https://build.rockbox.org/

They work properly with the xvortex bootloader.  (we still need to generate our own bootloader build FWIW..)

Daily snapshots are archived here, along with corresponding manual and voice files:

The X3ii also has binary builds on both pages, though you'll need to install a different bootloader image; instructions on how to do that are linked off its wiki page.

rjdg14:
I was able to use the tool for Windows that was linked to and successfully formatted a 128GB MicroSDXC card from exFAT to FAT32, and Rockbox recognises it. I now have 160GB installed on my device in total (128GB + 32GB), and even with most of my 200 or so CDs ripped in the FLAC format plus some older MP3s I've still only filled up about half of the total storage, so it's more than enough.

The Xduoo X3 was officially marketed as being able to store up to 256GB (2x 128GB), however MicroSD cards can in theory store up to 2TB and the largest that has been released so far would be about 1TB. I believe 128GB was about the largest size available when the player was released about 6-7 years ago, so does anyone know here if the X3 is capable of recognising more than advertised? Is it in theory capable of holding 4TB of audio files (I believe Rockbox is 32-bit, so it might be 2TB max)?
