    i need to make my emunand bigger because when i put new roms on it when i close them to save it it never closes i think its because there is no space in emunand to save it. I was update with this stuff at the begin of year but forgot not messed about with it since then just sit in draw but now the holidays are here hoping to get some gaming in. Im if sorry if itz a silly ? are yea by the way i got gateway card many thanks shaun

    first things first. apparently you're from the UK so learn how to write properly in order for people to be able to understand you.

    second, emunand is always the same size. the amount you have free in your system only depends on the size of your SD card. so if you want to have more space for games, buy a bigger SD card.

    I'm curious as to how big the emuNAND is on the SD card and would there be any benefits for Flashcard makers to add a multiple emuNAND selection feature?

    there's no real benefit. it's not like people can't do that if they use two or more SD cards with one emunand in each. But there's really no point for that. Nothing really to gain.

    There are tools to extract emunand so it's also easy to check the size of emunand. It's not always the same. Mine is 954MB for example. There are some smaller.

    EmuNAND is nearly 1 G...

    Depends on how many bad sectors are on your NAND right?

    it seems there's some differences in size between regions. But always around 1GB

    I would use dd and gparted for changing my SD card. (I think I am getting a 32GB one soon.)

    i thought it was just size differences between toshiba and samsung nand. are you certain region makes a difference?

    increasing the size of the emunand partition, at least theoretically, would allow for more space for system titles and dsiware. if we ever get to make our own stuff like that, that would be cool. having all system titles from all regions would also be interesting, i suspect we could region change (when possible) and it would be seamless because the titles each region requires are already there :)

    I never tested it since I only have a EUR 3DS. But I think I read about it some time ago. But yeah, being able to do that would be interesting and allow for a whole range of new features.

    I would like to be able to select from multiple emuNAND partitions on one SD card. Then I could have a different NNID for each partition and easily be able to get around Miiverse console bans (which are only for Wii Us) and switch partitions during regular bans and perma bans.

    Then, I could easily post things that are against the Code of Conduct without it affecting my Wii U and my main accounts!

    Just imagine, hundreds of hours of hard work and knowledge, careful disassembly and tinkering, arduous testing, tenuous teamwork from a community that encompasses the whole globe. The gift of dozens of geniuses who made computing what it has become today.

    All so you can draw dicks on Miiverse and get away with it. Horrific yet poetic

    Well, I was thinking more along the lines of custom images for screenshots, screenshots of ROM hacks, posting usernames from other websites, and posting links to other websites. ;)
