    Now that the official update has been released and it brings support for SD cards with the exFAT format, is there a way to extract the driver from the OS and apply it to 10.3.0.296?

    It's probably already integrated, since the build date of te 10.3 leak is newer

    There are exFAT drivers in 10.2.1xxx and higher too. Are you sure it wasn't already there?

    That's what I'm thinking but I'm a newbie when it comes to poking around in the OS and finding out stuff. So hopefully it's not integrated and someone with a bit more know how than me can find out for those running the leak and want support for 64GB cards and up without having to format

    Sorry, but there is no bar file. It is baked into the OS. If your PC, MAC or Linux machine has the appropriate drivers that is what you need to worry about. Sadly, fat32 or ntsf are still more universal due to microsofts licensing restrictions for exFat.

    I have to wonder if the drivers just weren't ready yet, or possibly the Web service that would allow the OS to download them dynamically upon insertion of an exFAT card.

    Has anyone on 10.3 checked to see if the download just works now?

    Did you format the card to fat32 before the update? Or did you put it into a device with the official 10.2.1 release from today then put it into the 10.3 device?

    For the record, 64gb sd cards have been supported since the inception of BB10 - at least fat32 (didn't try ntsf) Popped my 64 in when I first got my z10 in March 2013, formatted and no probs.

    It is a bar file (Sachesi says sys.data.exfat), but I can't seem to find the download URL anywhere in the OS.

    Good question I believe I formatted it on a mac before I put it in the phone however I think I have formatted if again in the phone itself when I was on 10.2.1

    I checked if the download worked on 10.3 and it didn't.

    Interesting - I didn't see it in the grab links when I went to the Rogers site via Sachesi for z10 100-3. Is it a hidden file (bar) baked in then? I haven't tried a hex editor on the debrick, but maybe you have.

    Downloading the exFAT driver from Settings > Storage installs the bar after grabbing it from somewhere on BlackBerry's servers. The question is where?

    It's likely Blackberry has to pay a licence fee per user, which is why they have added this 'download' procedure.
    The actual exFAT driver that recognises exFAT filesystems is baked in since very early 10.2 but likely just not functional without the download.
    The download link/procedure is either in that filesystem driver or in settings app I would guess.

    Did that driver install (update) when you went to format your card today? And could it have something to do with msft licensing requirements? This is mysterious.

    They do have to pay licensing, the mystery is how it is pushed now and from where.

    I took out my SD card, put it into my computer, formatted to exFAT and put it back into my Z30. The driver prompt kicked in then.

    That makes sense now. I though you somehow were able to format exFAT On the device, rather than the device simply recognizing the format. Thanks for the reply. Now if we can only get some EB or PB cards LOL (but I would settle for a TB card)
