    I was wondering how trimming games worked. Do you trim the game then delete the trim or delete the original or do you have to keep both? Please include as much details as possible about trimming pls im sort of a noob.

    There's a handful of rom trimming tools (check the Downloads section). Just trim the rom and put the trimmed one on your card, you should be able to delete the older one. And it works by getting rid of unnecessary files (don't ask the specifics, I'm not really into the whole ROM hacking or decrypting). Also, this should go in the Help or ROM Hacking section. Hope I helped

    So does that mean you HAVE to trim them or is it just to save space
