    ok so i personally like the v7 patch logo better than the u logo for pokemon black. so i found out were the title screen graphics were, swiched the u one witrh the v7 one and packed the rom. it works fine but instead of it being the usual 256 mb, its 201 mb! the game works fine from what ive tested but im wondering why this happened. can anyone come up with an explanation?

    you sure it's trimmed? i've experienced having patched only 64mb. why? because patched the rom where i only have 64mb left space, flash drive.

    ok maby i have ta be more specific. i unpacked the u and jv7 patched roms to seperate folders. i went into data/a/0/2 than i copied the 6 file from the j rom to the u rom. (if you dont know, data/a/0/2->6 is the title logo) after finishing this i packed the rom and it was 201 mb instead of the 256 mb it started as.

    When you re-pack a rom, it automatically removes all of the blank space.
