    I'm pretty sure that's exactly what braindump was originally designed for.

    @Izaya-Orihara Do you want to dump the romfs of a title installed in emuNAND? If so you have to run the homebrew launcher from the emuNAND.
    Also you can extract the romfs of a .cia directly I think.

    That is probably because hblauncher_loader is booting to boot.3dsx, which is your boot manager.

    You need the homebrew launcher, yes, and it works on emuNAND.

    You need to run it through the HBL. It should be able to dump your RomFS and ExeFS on emuNAND, I've done it on emuNAND a few times before without any issues.

    Would please tell me how to run the homebrew launcher app on emunand, someone mentioned it reboots my 3ds because of the boot manager, can some please tell me how to change that so when i run the hb launcher app it runs, instead of rebooting

    I found a tutorial, but can someone clarify - get the main idea, I just don't want to change the wrong file

    thank you

    "Here's what you need to do:

    Rename your homebrew launcher .3dsx file to something that is 4 letters. In my case, I have bhbl.3dsx for the homebrew launcher, and boot.3dsx for CBM.

    When you open the homebrew launcher loader, from your emunand, hold Y after it starts up. This will write the payload to your SD card.

    Insert your SD card in your computer and edit the payload with a text editor (notepad++ if you're on windows). The name of the file will be "hblauncherloader_otherapp_payload_YOURFIRMWAREVERSION.bin"

    Find the string "boot.3dsx" and replace it with whatever you renamed your homebrew launcher .3dsx

    Now you will be able to open the homebrew launcher with the hblauncher_loader cia from emunand"
