Ext4 Filesystem Hits Android, No Need to fear Data Loss

“Google’s new Nexus S smartphone is the first Android device to use the Ext4 filesystem. The company published a statement on the official Android developer blog earlier this month to discuss how adoption of Ext4 on Android will impact third-party application developers. In a follow-up post last week, Ext4 developer Ted T’so commented on the transition and offered some further clarification regarding concerns about fsync data loss issues, which he says pose minimal risk on Android due to the higher level of quality assurance testing.”
