    Hi all!

    Question:
    Could you delete the inaccesible partition after creating emuMMC once its done its job.

    I was recently told that the reason for partitioning the sd was to allow the 'process' of creating emuMMC.

    After creating emuMMC, could you make the inaccessible partition usable again? dunno if anyone has done it before, but wouldnt doing this save you ~30GB of storage.

    Thanks.

    No, you can't delete it. It's necessary for emuMMC.

    Not "allow". ffs, why You are interpreting my words in weird way?
    It's necessary for emuMMC to work. Deleting it = deleting emummc. Period. Stop trying to overthinking it.

    You can delete the partition from the partition table. As long as the raw data still exists, the emuMMC will still work. If you start using that area of the SD card for other things, the raw data will be overwritten, and then it won't work. It's advisable to partition off the area reserved to be used by emuMMC to keep the area of the disk reserved; safe. Also, the hekate's auto setup of emummc requires it to start the initial creation of emuMMC.

    lel. emuMMC is 30 gigs large.
