    no. unless YOU learn how to make exploits, and edit your NAND chip that is in YOUR 3ds motherboard by modifyinbg the offsets YOU need to find

    Well theoretically you could change the partitions, but that would break the TWL partition headers which are checked by bootrom, and you'd end up with a lovely brick.

    \n?
    There's no way to do this without modifying the NCSD partition table on NAND
    If you try to do this you WILL brick because it's signature is verified by bootrom.

    And the bootrom is contained in a read-only chip, so there's no way to mod it.

    Sorry for bumping, but @Apache Thunder was somehow able to use sighax to edit the NCSD and increase the TWL NAND storage size. I still don't know how though.
