    You need to install the ExFat Update. There is a tutorial on how to do so without updating your system on this site.

    I'm assuming that someone dumped them using their console cert and that CDN downloader.

    Pokken does not maintain its save. Have you saved, closed the game completely and re-loaded it?

    Guys please help me. I'm desperate. I'm unable to make "RomFS" firmware launch, from the RCM… I followed the guide step by step but still nothing. It has been 3 hours I'm trying stuff, but still nothing. I'm on the latest firmware. I'm seeing all of you guys trying games, i'm getting really frustrated, please help T.T

    It mentions it, but the game seemed to run fine. AFAIK the update was huge because the game engine doesn't let you just patch certain things, you have to essentially rebuild huge chunks of code and overwrite the old stuff, even though it's massively redundant.

    I am in the same position.
    After RomFS is selected I had white lines appear, now using Decrypt-XCI-v2.1.bat + http://carlus.altervista.org/nx/title_id_patcher.html it goes black.
    Looks like the OP method is simply wrong and it really needs updating with new info to say what the issue is.

    That moment when the only game you want to pirate is Super Mario Oddessy and it's one of the only titles that won't boot using this method :P
    Gotta love those No Demo games

    Has anyone done any proper testing with saves?

    For example let's say I run Rayman Legends, then Bayonetta, then back to Rayman, all using the same donor, will the saves file be lost between game switching?

    I made a small tool for macOS to deal with XCI stuff (hactool is still required, compile it by yourself)
