    (Posting this here as I read that this would be better than using the Ask! option. If this is the wrong forum pls let me know.)

    tutorial I'm using: http://wololo.net/2015/10/28/tutorial-hack-pack-3ds-rom-use-hans/

    So I'm incredibly new to this type of modding/hacking. I'm trying to perform step 2. However, Braindump just goes through all the files inside of the original and never actually gets to the part where you choose the game you want dumped. As an example, it goes-/3ds/braindump-master/, to,/3ds/braindump-master/braindump-master/, and then, /3ds/braindump-master/braindump-master/source/.

    If it helps in anyway I have a new 3ds xl running firmware 11.0, I've gotten Homebrew to run, and I'm attempting to get that incredible Gay Awakening hack to work on my digital copy.

    If there is anything else it would help for me to post please let me know.

    Where did you download brainsump from? You should only have braindump.3dsx and braindump.xml in your braindump folder of your 3ds folder.

    1) Erase everything braindump related off of your SD card.
    2) Download the latest braindump release from here.
    3) Extract it, place the braindump folder from that file into the 3ds folder of your SD card.
    4) Run it through homebrew and you should now be able to pick a game to dump.

    Actually, don't use the braindump version I linked to you earlier. Use the one attached to this post.

    Hello! I too am having a problem with this. After finishing the dump, it tells me that it is "data is incomplete," which leaves nothing on my SD card. I have a digital copy of Birthright I'm trying to dump, and someone on /r/3dshacks reccomended me to install this in order to dump digital copies, as before it was only giving me a red screen.

    The only things that I can think of that may be wrong is A) make sure the game card is all the way in the 3DS (most likely not the issue) or B) not enough space on your SD card.

    Are you using the copy in the .rar that I uploaded or a different copy?

    And believe it or not, that someone who helped you on /r/3dshacks was me!

    Ah! Well, thank you again. I don't have a card for the game; it's a digital copy. My SD card is 64 GB, so, plenty of space. I installed menuhax on 11.0, if that helps. And indeed, I used your .rar. I've tried running it about 5 times in all, now, to no avail.
