    I've been playing through Pokemon Sun. Once completed I plan to play randomized Moon, in preparation for this I attempted to dump the RomFS and ExeFS via an old version of Braindump. Once completed I'd receive notification that the dump failed and the output file was incomplete. I assumed that this was due to me installing Moon over multiple wifi networks, and tried to dump Sun (both games are digital copies, not physical). Sun gave me the same issue, however, checking the SD card presented both the RomFS and ExeFS files for both games (Haven't been able to test their legitimacy yet). I have tried this with a newer version of Braindump that gives .cxi files. It gives the same error. Currently I'm trying to dump my physical copy of Pokemon Omega Ruby to see whether the issue lies on the games or braindump/the system itself.

    Console specs:
    O3DS XL Eur
    A9LH installed
    Luma 3DS V.6.6

    Edit: Physical copy of Omega Ruby dumped fine?

    Get the title IDs of Sun/Moon and use Decrypt9 to turn the games into CIAs then follow this to extract your CIA contents. You should no longer use braindump.

    Decrypt9 can also turn it into a cxi file.

    Your Not The Only One Who Got This Error I Did As Well And I Waited For About 1 Or 2 Hours!
    Maybe The App Is Outdated?
