Issue: SD Card insufficient space for .img < How do you remove weight from .img?

I’ve purchased multiple 128GB SD cards from Amazon, a few Samsung evo plus and a few Sandisk Ultras and I have the same issue.


The 128GB .img files that are specified for 128GB SD Cards do not allow me to write them because the SD Cards, fresh out a new package, do not have enough space. The Sandisk Ultra is giving me 127.79GB  available space and the .img file I’m trying to copy is 127.87GB


To free up space on the .img, I’ve tried mounting the .img and deleting some rom packs out of the mounted drive, which does appear to save the edits I’ve done as I’ve ejected then remounted and those roms are still gone, however the core .img file weight does not seem to change???


How do I edit the .img to remove some weight?


It seems to me to be an epic fail to purchase a larger card, like a 256, to run a 128 setup. But I don’t know what else to do.


If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it!
