    I'm probably posting this in the worng section, but eh. So I'm trying to clear some space up on my 3ds. On the CFW guide, it says I can delete anything as long as it isn't the "3ds" folder, "files9" folder, "hblauncherloader" folder, "luma" folder, "Nintendo 3DS" folder, arm9loaderhax.bin, or boot.3dsx. So am I free to delete: arm9.bin, arm11.bin, and SafeA9LHInstaller.dat?

    Hate to be "that guy" but your answer is contained within your question.

    The end of the arm9loaderhax installer shows what to keep at the end and delete of installing CFW on your 3DS.

    So, just making sure, I CAN delete arm9.bin and arm11.bin? Just making sure, because I do things wrong very easily.

    If I were to transfer all my files to a new sd card, would I need to have arm9.bin, arm11.bin and safea9lhinstaller.dat on the sd card to keep CFW.? Just wondering, cause I'm planning on getting a new sd card and want to keep CFW.

    If you change your SD the only file needed for CFW is arm9loaderhax.bin ;)
    (and Nintendo 3DS, 3DS, luma and optional boot.3dx) :)

    Ok, good. Because I need a LOT more space on my microsd, so later today I'm buying a 32gb. So, I guess I'll be fine. Hopefully...

    I have a 32Gb SD in my old and I think is enought. Just remember to format it as FAT32 and 32kb to make it work at max speed :)
