So I was scouting main.bin for some free code space, since Newer DS is starting to run out, and wait, what's this?

Imagine my surprise when I found out that Nintendo graciously decided to shit allllllll this stuff into the main code file, meaning it's always loaded and always limiting your space by lovely 53KB






Those are found in a nice 48KB NARC found in the main.bin at 0x00026CE0 and ending at 0x0003267C. NSCS, NCLs included.



This, on the other hand, is found at 0x0003267C until 0x00033A84. There are also some lovely NTFRs which are just giant packs of zeroes and a nice BMG which is the same. Yay!

Enjoy!

No, it's in the main code file, and not the filesystem

Right after it is the Corrupted Save File BMG, main game font, stuff, more stuff, Download Play SDAT, etc.

Neat. Found anything unused (apart from the presumely unused empty files)? I think the font is used on the debug screen. Also, are the blank files blank in all versions?

No, that's not the debug font. That's in there too, but later.

And, dunno.
See for yourself, mister.
