So I'm trying to run Braindump but whenever I open it from the Homebrew menu on my DS it says ""This homebrew exploit does not have support for launching applications under target titles. Please use another exploit." I'm currently using the Rosalina v2.0.0 homebrew launcher on cfw. I'm super new to all of this so I'm not really sure where to go from here, what exploit to use, and how to get it. Any help would be appreciated!

Other hax installers are listed in the homebrew menu but every one fails because my system is apparently too far updated

If you're on cfw, dont use braindump to dump titles. Godmode9 has a dump feature. Just find the .app file on the sd card and build a cia from it by clicking on it.

This might be a stupid question, but which .app file am I looking for? Specifically I'm trying to dump Fire Emblem Awakening, which I own a physical copy of. I'm not sure if that makes any difference.

EDIT: Oh whoops I figured it out, I forgot how to actually boot up Godmode9 on my 3ds. Okay thank you for the help! Really appreciate it!

Alright so I got a .cia file from it. The guide I was originally following said I need to get to the romfs.bin and exefs.bin files, or more specifically I have to drag a file into the same location on my computer as Fire Emblems romfs folder, but I really dont know where that folder is(or if its something I have to make, how I go about making it).

Download Asia81's 3ds hacking toolkit to unpack and repack the cia: https://github.com/Asia81/HackingToolkit9DS/releases. It'll give you the romfs.bin and exefs.bin files you need, but will also automatically unpack them for you.

Alright I'm using the HackingToolkit but I'm still not sure how to use it to get what I need? How do I use it to get a romfs folder I can replace with the Fire Emblem hackpack?

Just install the setup.exe and then run the program. Type in CE to extract your cia. Then just give it the name of the file.

Okay cool that worked. I've got the DecryptedRomFS.bin and DecryptedExeFS.bin files(among other things) in the toolkit folder now, what do I do next to install this fire emblem hack pack?

I have no clue how the romhack is structured. However, im assuming it's just new files for the game it wants you to click and drag into it. If that's the case, just extract the romhack into the extracted romfs folder and make sure everything overlaps. Then, you should be able to use the toolkit to repack the cia. If you want an easier method of doing this, luma layerdfs patching should also be able to run the romhack without rebuilding a cia. You just put the romhack on the sd card and it'll run it when you boot up the game.

When I extracted the romfs it didnt make a new folder, should I just be extracting the romhack into the folder with the toolkit and all the bin files it just extracted?

Also I tried just putting the rom hack into the SD card and it didnt seem to do anything so I;ll just do it the longer way

When I extracted from the cia it just made a few .bin files in the toolkits folder. Is there something else I should be doing to get an actual romfs folder? Or do I just make one and put the files in it

Odd. It should make an extracted romfs folder. Anyway, the more I think about it, I highly suggest you use luma patching since it is alot simpler. Also, i think the toolkit does come with a separate romfs extractor if that's anywhere in the toolkit menu.

At the risk of sounding more clueless than I already am, how uh...do I go about using the luma patching method? So far dropping the files into the root of the SD card didnt affect it and dropping them into the luma folder did nothing as well

It's not the root. I should've specified. Go into the luma folder and go into the titles folder. Create a folder named the title Id of fire emblem, them create a folder called romfs. Try extracting it there.

  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    @BigOnYa Godreborn sadly went crazy. I didn't spoke a lot with him, but on Discord he messaged me for some weeks before he left. Not sure if I may share his personal situation, but honestly it's nothing he didn't made clear over here. I'll try to be brief: He was having a bad time due to bipolarity. And he was messaging me that he wasn't feeling good emotionally speaking.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    Then something happened between Chary and him, again, nothing he didn't made publicly already, but if curious you should check his last threads.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    Then, after that last thread, sone users began to mock him. I tried to mock him because he was giving me over 80 notifications per day about his "jokes", but I just stopped replying. I think he took personal the whole situation of me not replying to his same jokes repeated over and over and his personal thingy with Chary was the drop that spilled the glass or whatever. So he got banned fir his behavior towards Chary or something.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    Really can't tell much as the last thing he wrote me via Discord was: "you hurt me really bad with your last joke" (He joked I sucked hus BaNaNa all day and I told him that Chary wouldn't even touch him with her bat whilst his mom sucked my BaNaNa every night) and I think he took it really personal. Mind you, that was my first response after 3 months of constant "Juan sucks my BaNaNa" jokes every day.
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Oh yeah forgot about the entire Chary thing lol
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    And then he went even crazier and began blaming everyone for his situation (be aware that he's bipolar and I personally live with a bipolar person and I know how bipolars behave and excuses their behavior against others) so I immediately knew something was gonna get awfully wrong, even Flame and I talked a bit about that, and I warned Flame something like this would happen soon.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    But yeah, basically that... Godreborn couldn't take a joke when he was the one that started it all. Again... not justifying my one joke... but it kinda got me tired. Hehe. So... there...
  • HiradeGirl @ HiradeGirl:
    that was such a rabbit hole
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    The only time I answered to his constant jokes left him with a bigger rabbit hole. He basically asked for the tip and I gave him the whole BaNaNa. I'm kind, gave him more than he could take.
  • JuanMena @ JuanMena:
    No but seriously... heh... he kinda asked for it... for 3months or so. I'm kind.
