    Won't it be possible to expand the nand size by expanding the partition?

    Why would you need to? Nintendo won't release an system update that's bigger than sysnand size...

    Oh. DSiWare is limited to 64mb... there's really no point in expanding emunand size, the games are very small, so you can just install/uninstall them very quickly...

    i have a friend that needs to for example, if i expand emunand partition, andd then fill remaining space in the twl_nand file with FFFFFFFF (empty byte, just like how it looks like when it isn't full) will it work?

    no, emunand is hardcoded to sysnand size, you can't change the size of it.

    What DSiWare could you possibly need to install that takes up more than the given TWL_NAND space?

    Why not make a second EmuNAND?

    To install what? Do you need to install every DSiWare ever made or something?

    If it's to do with installing DS ROMs as DSiWare, you won't get anywhere.
    If not, just make a second EmuNAND.

    Do you have four EmuNANDs already?

    Why not just use a different SD card?

    You'd probably have to heavily modify the firmware itself. I'm pretty sure it's hardcoded to only address so much.

    but it is an hassle to setup one emunand.... unlink it... prepare dbs folder... just expanding nand size will be faster.

    *sigh* i guess it is...
    but if it doesn't work i have to create another emunand again... wanted to know

    Well, it may not even be possible.
