    That is the older format of emunand. Nowadays people use rednand.

    If you prefer having a 1.8gig NAND rather than a rednand, is there any reason to use redNAND?

    Legacy = 1GB on 943/954MB chips, 2GB on 1.21/1.82/1.84GB chips

    This option is set for compatible with GW MT EmuNAND.
    If you don't have these flashcarts, don't use this option.
