The Sandisk microsdxc 64Gb card was confirmed as working with the Galaxy S2:

Unfortunately, I tested it with MIUI and it didn't work. Specifically, I tested it with MIUI 2.3.9 (based on Gingerbread, not ICS) downaloaded from this site. When I tried to format the sd card with the phone, the phone ended up formatting the internal storage! I also tried formatting the card as FAT32 from the computer, but to no avail.

I then installed this version of the stock (rooted) ICS rom:

and the 64gb card worked perfectly. I also managed to reformat it from the phone without affecting the internal storage.

Does anyone know:
* if this is a Cyanogen problem or only a MIUI problem?
* if MIUI on other phones supports 64 GB cards
* if the new MIUI 2.3.16, based on ICS, supports 64gb cards?

RIGHT you have to get a 3rd party program and reformat the sd card into fat 32 not exfat! Currently got mine working on miui

Edit: heres the beautiful software that will do it!
