    SD Card

    Ok, so I am coming to the Maxx HD from the Thunderbolt which came with the 32GB micro SD card. my question is do I need to pretty much completely wipe the card clean to put it in the Maxx? My Bolt was rooted so all of those files were on there but I also have some pics/music/movies too so I guess I'm wondering if I can keep the media files on it or if I should just wipe everything off and restart from scratch basically. Any insight would be great, thanks

    Just put the new card in, it should just work. Always make a backup JUST IN CASE. You never know, but, yes, it should just work.

    So you're saying that I don't need to completely wipe the card? Even with all the HTC files & rooting files??

    Correct, they won't do anything anyways, I would most definitely clean things up if you don't stuff for sure anymore but that's just me cause I'm OCD like that lol but yeah, you can just plug that bad boy in and it'll recognize your media and stuff.

    OK thanks! I'm going thru the disk now & deleting a lot of stuff I don't need anymore. I had heard somewhere that you did not want to put a card from a rooted phone into a non rooted phone for danger of bricking the new phone, so that was what I was worried about.

    No that's all lies... the SD card is just storage. Unless you try to flash something not for that phone that's when you can potentially do damage.

    Those lying b@st@rds!! Haha, j/k....

    Thank you though that puts my mind at ease. I still want to clean it up just to make sure I have all the storage possible on it. I know we have 32gb internal with this phone but having another 32gb external can't be bad right? lol

    Yes it is not necessary but honestly I would. I would pull all the files I want to keep off of the SD card. Format the card in the MAXX HD. Then put the files back on the card so you are starting fresh with the new phone...but that is just me.

    I believe that's what I'll do, thanks! Just out of curiosity, are you rooted?
