    When you use the dslazy method and you unpack and repack a room:

    Why the new rom has always a smaller size than the original?

    Is there any loss of information?

    thanks

    No it's like an autotrim.
    In fact: The repack also trims the rom
    (at least I think it is so)

    I don't think it's a trim, I think it's just because it doesn't re-pack the empty bytes.
