    Every linux wbfs manager ive used works good (cojiros, wiithon etc). But none can actually format to wbfs. Is there a way to do this?

    I use WBFS manager using Arch Linux, careful though, you may need to format the whole drive to WBFS THEN resize it

    the wbfs fuse module comes with a mkfs.wbfs

    Code:
    ./mkfs.wbfs /dev/sdxx
