    i got the skyrim.xci and used the xci2titleconverter to change the titleid to pinball so i could use it with layeredFS. The problem is when i try to move the game to the sd card the file is too big to enter the fat32 sd card. What do i need to do?

    ...just get exFAT? If you're on the latest firmware, just insert an exFAT formatted SD card into your console so it can download the exFAT update. If you're paranoid about getting banned for downloading a simple exFAT update, use ChoidujourNX to install the exFAT update offline once you procure the necessary files off this site.

    use this to split xci files into 4gb parts.

    I mean seriously the thread name is splitting xci files and you're all getting him to follow a lengthy tutorial for updating for exfat....

    roger that. I did not know as I only used layered fs on my 5.1 switch and had sx-os on my 4.1.
    at least for somebody else just looking to split xci files there will be an answer in this thread.
