Are 64 GB microSD cards supported by 2.0b1/2 in any way?

    I (stupidly) bought a 4 GB card originally, forgetting that it doesn't actually give you a full 4 GB, so all the 32 Gbit games such as Bravely Default don't fit. I was about to go out and buy a 32 GB card but then GW released their update saying 64 GB cards will be supported in 2.0.

    I've read that the current beta only supports FAT32 and 64 GB exceeds the FAT32 specification, but is there any way at all to temporarily format a 64 GB with a FAT32 partition, even if it only gives you 32 GB of space? Don't really want to waste my money on a 32 GB card if 64 will end up being supported....

    It works fine.

    Remember that with the current system, all formatting is destroyed.

    Also, you can trim roms to get them to fit on your 4gb.

    Oh, really? I didn't think this was possible since I read 3DS games haven't been decrypted yet. How would I go about trimming it?

    Well that makes things a bit easier, thanks for the heads up!
