    You misunderstood his question. I would like to know as well how to completely wipe the ext2 as if it were reformatted.

    Oh sorry. I would assume
    Code (Text):
    1. adb shell rm -R /system/sd/*
    or just plug your phone in and mount the sd card from the notification menu then format using whatever program you used to create it.

    You can also use amon ra recovery if you have an htc device rooted with it, I usually do it with my old g1 or hero
