    Everytime I try and play my texture edited Pokemon AS .romfs file with Hans I get a black screen. I've tried waiting a few minutes, but nothing appears. Here is what I did.
    • I am using a homebrewed o3DS with hax 2.5.
    • I dumped my Pokemon AS files onto my SD card using BrainDump.
    • I ran RomFS Extractor as administrator and extracted my rom.
    • I used GARC UnPacker to decompress the file I was editing. (In this case I was editing a pokemon texture and model located in 0/0/8 in the .romfs folder)
    • Once I finished editing I used GARCTool to compress my decompressed file, and I renamed the newly compressed file to the name of the old one and deleted the old one.
    • I ran RomFS Builder as administrator and compressed the folder back into a .romfs file.
    • I used HxD to delete all lines of hex code from FFO and up and saved. (Note: I used control+e for this)
    • I placed the edited .romfs file into the hans file located at the root of my SD card, and I renamed it according to the last 8 digits of the braindump file (0011C500.romfs).
    • I ran homebrew via themehax and opened up Hans.
    • These are my settings in Hans:
    Region: ---
    Language: --
    FW Qersion Spoof: NO
    N3DS CPU clock: 268Mhz
    Code -> SD: NO
    Romfs -> SD: YES
    Save Configuration: NO
    • Hans recognizes my 0011C500.romfs file, but when I click ok it gives me a black screen.
    Like I've said I have tried waiting several minutes, but nothing appears. No music. Nothing.
    If you know anything about this please let me know. I've tried redumping and starting over completely multiple times, but still no luck. My SD card is 8GB too, so space isn't a problem.

    Any help would be appreciated. If you have no idea what's going on this could also serve as a tutorial.
    Note: I was also freshly installed hax 2.5 on the sd card before doing this.
