    I trimmed pokemon x and y and they both booted black screen other games work fine, so can they not be trimmed or what? Yes the update data is still there in the rom file i only removed the ccl which cuts the file in half

    Pokemon X/y and Animal Crossing. I think eshop roms might count too.

    I think you will find it is the roms m8ty that don't work, be careful which Pokemon X/Y dumps you use I have found out there are some dodgy dumps going around that don't work, mainly the zipped up versions! Every zipped up version I tested did not work, then I tested the ones that where just on there own, .3ds files and they both worked first time and also Animal Crossing, only use the re-pack versions ;)

    You can't supertrim Pokemon or Animal Crossing because the save is stored in the actual rom on your micro sd card, not the SD card like other 3DS games.

    I've CCI trimmed every USA rom and they all work if you CCI trim only. There is no gamble. Don't trim Pokemon,don't trim animal crossing, CCI trim everything else.

    It's huge space savings. Sure some you only save a couple hundred mb, but I've seen a 4GB rom turn into a 2.1 GB trimmed rom, so totally worth doing.
