    Hi all! I'm following this (https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki) guide to acieve a CFW, however, my Certified-Compatible Lexar 8GB SD runs out of memory from all of the NAND dumps. Even if I delete a file, the SD card's size remains the same. How can I fix this? Thanks!

    (The SD card was a Lexar 8GB Platinum 2)

    you are suposed to copy the nand backups to the pc and delete them from the sd card...
    are you sure your sd card is not going bad? make a check disk...

    Are you sure they're not in the recycle bin?

    I dump each NAND backup to my Mac and then delete them from the SD. I've had no problems with the SD in the past, either

    @9fiftyfive : I did it with the 4GB SD that comes with the device, so there shouldn't be a problem with 8gigs

    Exactly my point. I've done with 4GB before, but that was just for HBL.

    On OS X, and other UNIX like systems, deleting a file actually moves the file to a hidden folder on the device named ".trash" (or something similar). You have to empty the trash bin each time, otherwise the files will still be there.

    *facepalm* Thanks! I totally forgot about that! I'll try when I get a chance. That would also explain why it worked last time - I was on Windows

    Windows is different. Media stored on external flash devices is immediately deleted rather than moved to the Recycle Bin. It's how its filesystem works.
