    I'm tring to extract the ExeFS and RomFS, but it's soooo sloooow. Too much slow! It's been like 5 hours that I'm waiting and the progress of the RomFS is just at 217088/3111656! I also calculated that it goes up by 1025 every 2 minutes. So it will take 4 days!!! I don't know why it's soo sloow! Last time I used Braindump, it was on Rune Factory 4, and it wasn't so slow to extract. I extracted it in like 1-2 hours and it was like 1GiB or 2GiB. Is there a method to fix this?

    I wouldn't go asking for a romfs, no one can provide a link as it's against the rules. Braindump is a long process. I'm guessing you're using an old 3ds, it might be faster with a new 3ds.

    I think building a cia from the sd contents, decrypting it, and extracting it is faster. But that only works with a9lh or 9.2

    Between insane and insecure
    Do you have A9LH installed? If you do, use Decrypt9 instead

    Braindump is like RxTools, outdated and slow.
    Use decrypt9

    While i agree, if you do not have arm9 (via safehax, 9.2, or a9lh), you have no choice

    I know but I read arm9 as a9lh since most people (stupidly) call arm9loaderhax arm9

    When I closed the screen to see if it still working, it froze and when I restarted my 3ds, all my SD card data were corrupted, except the Home Menu files. I made a backup of my pictures and apps in the morning. But for the other files, the last backup I have is 4 months old.

    Oh and, I don't know how to install A9LH/arm9. Could someone link me to a tutorial please?
