    yes this is a questing thread, but i think this question is kinda special, and deserves it's own thread, if not please answer and lock/delete this thread.

    I know there's two types of 3ds Nand, a toshiba nand, and a samsung nand. i know that one of them is a couple megabytes bigger than the other, but what exactly is the difference? i'm sure there is someone who knows this, and please explain deeply. Btw i personaly have a toshiba nand 10.0 eu old 3ds

    I think there's no difference, unlike dumping the contents of a musical CD you're dumping the full image of the NAND (it's full size). So you're basically dumping also stuff that's empty / unused, the other NAND is probably smaller in size but it contains the same stuff.
    That being said I'm no expert and could be very wrong, please correct me if so.

    Yeah the dumping process copies unused space as well as data. That's also another reason that restoring one system's nand to another isn't possible, as they might have conflicting nand types.
