    Based on your list, partition 6 is N3DS only update data, while partition 7 is N3DS and O3DS update data.

    But I thought XC can't be run on O3DS, so what's the deal?

    What is a couple MB when you have GBs of space? It was probably just lazynes.

    The N3DS probably uses both partitions for updates, while the O3DS just uses the 30~MB one. The smaller partition is probably just N3DS-specific patches after the O3DS update installs.

    So can I call NCCH6 EncryptedN3DSUpdate.bin and NCCH7 EncryptedUpdate.bin (or EncryptedO3DSpdate.bin)?
