    Hi, just transferred my emunand to sysnand with the latest decrypt9 (a9hl transfer worked great!)

    I now would like to delete my emunand partition, is there a way to do this thru decrypt9?

    I deleted mine a while back, if your using a windows based system follow this quick 4 minute video, I always do it this way, then use GUI Format to fat32 my card

    What's the easiest way to do this on a Mac without formatting?

    fyi Emunand9 can remove it (make a backup of the fat partition first, of course...)

    The best way to "delete" an emuNAND is by doing a format.
    emuNAND9 can format an SD card without emuNAND straight from the 3DS.

    If you can't access that, you can use Disk Utility on Mac OS X to format your SD card.
    I had to use an OS X virtual machine to format my SD card to FAT32 since Windows wasn't letting me (and it ended with me formatting my hard drive by accident. whoops)
    Formatting it on OS X worked fine on my o3DS.

    (Be sure to back up your SD card contents first!)

    at times, i also think of getting rid of mine, the idea of having no emuNAND partition kind of makes me thing that the mSD will be cleaner.
    and maybe loading times would slightly improve etc.

    plus , the swapping of emuNAND into sysNAND makes sysNAND work just like emuNAND when you have the option to choose 'boot into updated sysNAND" from Aurei, yeah?

    one note : i have done the swapping with my og3dsxl,but i have not yet deleted the emuNAND partition.

    i will give that a try now, and i shall see what happens then, if my mSD content does not get wiped, i might go ahead and remove emuNAND from my n3dsxl mSD!

    (and also the CMD option is abit too long, i will use Easus Partition Master program.)

    i will report back.
