Moto-Modder use Software with P2K-Interface to modify
everything on cell phones. The cell phones of the E-
Series and the V-Series uses a new unknown
FileSystem. Archievements showes that it's signed as
FAT16 but ordinary VFAT-Modul reject FS as NOT FAT-
System. There exist an article which tries to point
the differences between FAT16 and FATX.

As short resume about the compare of FAT16 and FATX
is, that this both FS has more common than different.
Their is a Link to a historical review of released
FileSystems.

FATX
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
FATX or XFAT is a slightly modified version of the
FAT filesystem, and is designed for Microsoft's Xbox
video game console hard disk drive, used in an effort
to reduce software piracy.

Motorola-Modders use a Software named P2K-Commander,
which enables the user to basic file-management and
to set different file attributes. These archieved
attributes determines:
- read-only
- resist reset and similar
- don't copy
- useable
- access filesystem: never,ask ever, ask once, alowed
- access network: never,ask ever, ask once, alowed
- ownership

I suggest to:
- extract FATX-FS-Package to standalone
- offer FATX in Linux-Moto-Modder-community as
package with raw support for Motorola FS on
E- and V-Series
- share experience from their efforts to archieve
further attributes from FATX
