Some usefull commands from exfat-utils package:

  • Make exFAT filesystem on your SD card:
    ​​mkexfatfs /dev/mmcblk1p1
  • Label SD card:​
    exfatlabel /dev/mmcblk1p1 "label"

If SD card doesn't mount automatically you need create a label.


Application versions: 
File fuse-exfat-1.1.0-1.armv7hl.rpm28.38 KB18/05/2015 - 02:12

- Initial build

The source code of this rpm is quite old and others have commented it doesn't work in Sailfish X.

I have compiled new fuse-exfat and exfat-utils rpm-packages, and can publish those.
But since You published the libraries back in 2015, I will wait some days for You to update before I may publish them.

Hi! Any news about the new version of fuse-exfat and exfat-utils for Sailfish X? I really need those packages to read the sdcard from my GoPro 5. Could you be so kindly to publish them, please?

hi guys. Just want to thank everyone involved in the applications and development for their efforts. You guys have no idea how much i appreciate everything. I almost sold my phone after aquiring it second hand. Had no idea how stuff worked om the phone. Until i came across this forum. You guys are the best. Now my brand new secondhand (lol) phone works like a dream. Still a few tweaks needed but i know i'll find the help i need here. Thanks again. You guys are a God sent. Can anyone tell me how i can deactivate the nokia account log on when i try and use maps. I would really like to use the maps but i cant gey past the log on. I read somewhere here that i must edit a file or 2 to bypass that,but i have no cooking clue as to how this should be done. Can anyone please help me. You guys are my only hope. Thanks in advance.

The MicroSD card mounts too late, which causes a problem to NOT mount at all.
For example: If you set up apps like the Call recorder, to point it to the SD card, it will make the folder automatically because the MicroSD card is not yet mounted. Then, when the system tries to mount, it can't mount anymore because the folder already exist.

So you need to remove the folder first and reinsert the micro SD card after EACH reboot :(
I hope to see an update so that the process of the mounting can be as early as possible to avoid problems like this.

Bug. When I copy by USB-cable in Phone a folder with 200 or more files (weigh 1-1,5 Gb), sometimes Jolla don't see contents, except the files (for example) ".fuse_hidden0000220800000001". Also after delete a such folder (when Jolla see contents) it's repeat: a folder don't delete, but Jolla don't see contents and create ".fuse_hidden..."-files.

Thanks for building a current version of fuse-exfat and exfat-utils! I have removed mine from openrepos (as it was older).

You may consider not including the man pages in the package (or moving them to a sub-package), a default install of SailfishOS seems to have no man binary.
