    Hello everybody I figured out similar to the wii scene that you can easily scrub/clean a 3ds rom simply with a hex editor.
    Here we have the steps.
    1: Download HxD Hex editor http://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/
    2: open the rom in the hex editor
    3:Scroll to the bottom and highlight all of the FF Hex's up to the encrypted data
    4: press delete
    5: save as -> Name the rom something
    6: your rom is now shrunk
