    You can delete all the of theme folder, however it will just default to the standard theme.

    I forgot the exactly folder, but you can delete the 'moonshell' folder.

    personal opinion - keep the moonshell. its tiny, and you can at least show off or something with it. there's no way a game would fit in its place anyway, not even tetris...

    Use a ROM Trimmer with 'Safe Mode' on it to save space also.

    I know this is somewhat, irrelevent, but what Rom Trimmer do you guys use for the R4?

    The R4/M3 trimmer included on the software cd, as well as [earlier?] versions of DSlazy can cause trimming issues.

    edit: forgot to put cd >_>

    I use a drag and drop .exe trimmer that came with one of the Neo MK menu releases. Never had a problem with it... ever.

    Yea, its like 4 megs, probably do what you said.
    To update the kernal in the future, i just delete everything of the previous one and put in the new one right?
