    well... i heard that when you are gonna setup a emunand, the app request you to do a partition on the sd to use for emunand

    so.... if i buy a 32gb sd how many gb can i use in emunand?

    it's possible to change the number of gb used in this partition????

    Emunand will only take 1-2GB, depending on 3ds model and manufacturer.

    ohh that's good, i was thinking that the partition uses the half of the sd because time ago i viewed a video, they have a 4gb sd card and the emunand used 2gb, but now it's clear, thanks.

    you need to be sure you understand what is going on before you do this stuff. Being non-technical and uniformed is a bad way to go with 3ds hacking. This stuff is for fun and learning technical stuff not for stealing.

    That said:

    1GB for o3ds 2GB for n3ds, will be created in a special partition at the front of your card. The remainder you will need to format as a FAT32 partition (depending on the size of your sd card windows may NOT want to format FAT32 for you and another tool will be required.

    When you are installing CIAs and other items on the 3ds in EMUNAND it is all stored in the FAT32 partition, only the title database is stored/modified on the emunand so that is why very little (2GB max) is needed for the emunand partition as most of the data goes on the sd card.
