    Get the Hack Toolkit: http://pastebin.com/A1s8cmsD
    Zippyshare: http://www91.zippyshare.com/v/ygsHTZ5d/file.html

    First you should have dumped with braindump to get your RomFS.bin!

    Then open the Pack Hack folder, and use RomFS Extractor and choose the romfs.bin

    And it should have created a folder named romfs_

    Put the files you need in from the romhack, then use RomFS Builder to save it as gameID.romfs (So like 00402000.romfs) (Get the info in HANS by choosing the game, highlighting the RomFS function, and looking on the bottom screen)
    Like Neo Y/X, you would put the files from the Full package over the romfs_ files.
    Or in CTGP-7, just go over the files again.

    And now put it in the hans folder at the root of your SD card.

    Download HxD. (Google it.)

    Now you need to open HxD on the (gameID).romfs file, highlight from the beginning to FF0 (include the FF0 line as well, and make sure it says 1000 on the bottom.)
    Press backspace to delete it.
    Save it as that.

    Open HANS and use the RomFS function.(Check the bottom to see if you have the files correctly placed.)

    Launch your game and enjoy!

    Why even bother to include the links that aren't zippyshare? They lead you through a bunch of ad-infested websites.

    Thanks though.

    Not sure if these are affiliate download sites or whatever, but is there really something wrong with Mega, Mediafire, or sites that are very simple to navigate and fairly secure? Vs megazipload54192.wibbersomthing.com

    When I got it, I copied the zippyshare link.
    So just use the zippyshare link I put in the first post.

    This tool pretty much dumped everything perfectly! Now I want to know how I can even edit the files... :mellow: The majority file extension is *.arc

    In the coming months, .arc files will become as easy to extract as bctsm files.
    It's just everything we're looking at is new to us.

    I actually found a tool last night that supposedly extracts them, though meant for Gamecube games, they just leave empty folders rather than actual files. I'll be keeping my rips on my PC though. :P

    Have you used HxD to remove the 1000 bytes in the gameID.romfs?
    (Highlight from the beginning to the end of the FF0 line, making sure it says 1000 on the bottom, and saved it?)

    I fixed it! Turned out my .romfs file was corrupted... I rebuilt the romfs and used Pablo's tool and it worked.
