    Does a RomFS dumper exist in CIA form?
    I want to dump some games for editing, but I'm using Luma3DS, and it's a pain in the arse to manage. Currently, I have to do all this to dump a game:
    1. Launch ftBrony.
    2. Rename boot.3dsx to luma.3dsx (so I know what it is).
    3. Rename bootmanager.3dsx (my boot manager) to boot.3dsx.
    4. Close ftBrony.
    5. Launch hblauncher_loader.
    6. Launch the Homebrew Launcher from inside the boot manager.
    7. Launch Braindump from the Homebrew Launcher.
    8. Dump my game.
    9. Return to the Homebrew Launcher.
    10. Launch 3dsx version of ftBrony from the Homebrew Launcher.
    11. Rename boot.3dsx to bootmanager.3dsx.
    12. Rename luma.3dsx to boot.3dsx.
    13. Reboot the console. (L + R + Down + B doesn't work; it gives me a yellow-screen error.)
    It would make this process much simpler to have a dumper in CIA form. Does anyone know about one?

    can't you just add luma3ds to your boot manager?

    Luma fails to boot every time with my boot manager, and I read you can't use N3DS Clocked mode with a boot manager.

    Have you used braindump? Its a homebrew to be used in homebrew menu and it dumps the romfs of your game

    You've commented yet again, without reading the OP.

    Back when I was using menuhax autoboot (have since switched to a9lh) I remember hex editing the menuhax payload so it pointed to a different 3dsx file (in my case rei.3dsx) and just had a normal hblauncher boot.3dsx to use with hblauchner-loader. You could try to find the guide I used, or just look at the menuhax payload in a hex editor, you should see a .3dsx filename you can change.

    because it is NOT CONVENIENT to remove an entire n3ds back just to rename a file to dump romfs. ISN'T IT OBVIUS!?

    it would be much faster than using FTP and doing all those steps

    I have a New 3DS, and it would be pretty frustrating to screw off the back every time. Also, I can't remove the microSD while in emuNand.

    Uhh, which one is the Menuhax payload? :unsure:

    should be "ropbinpayload_menuhax_'your region', some numbers, your 3DS model (I think you said N3DS).bin"

    On Ubuntu? I've never had that issue. Did you install from a package or a ppa?
