    So yeah, I'm trying to install arm9loaderhax and my SD card is 280 MB too small, I noticed the Nintendo 3DS folder takes a lot of space but I need to know what I can delete and what I can't delete.

    Delete some games or dlc content which you can download later and on new 3ds it will take around 2.3 gb to install cfw

    Dude, just get a bigger SD card. Even if you bare bones it enough to install K9LH, you're not going to get much use out of it with a 2GB SD card.

    At least get a 4GB card, 2GB might do some bad things

    Between insane and insecure
    Buy a bigger SD card. That SD card is way too small for this process and you are running a huge risk of corruption and lacking proper means of backing up your NAND.
    Do not continue the guide until you get a bigger SD card.
