    Just saw on the sosuke's forum, awesome, gonna update now. Was going to post the news as well xD
    EDIT: I noticed in the instructions that it says to format to FAT16, some people on the forums, have success on FAT32, so I guess it's safe to try.

    What is the difference between FAT16 and FAT32?

    Does is make a diffrence if my micro-sd is formatted in one type or the other?

    doesn't seem to be critical, but no harm following the instructions?

    I always thought that such a kernel should have existed at the very beginning, but anyway, better late than never!
