    I've Google'd it and searched on this site, but I can't find a working download link. Could someone upload it for me please?

    Thanks! Do you know where I could find a tutorial to dumping on JHexTool?

    I don't think there are any tutorials. It would be better to ask me anyway since I am the author of JHexTool.

    It's really simple, just open a file, switch to the dumper tab and click the Dump button. No need to mess with the settings in that tab. This should create a .dump file of the file you opened, which can be opened in any text editor.

    Well I know nothing about Dumping; I thought that meant shrinking a file. I know how to do that with Padding, but I thought Dumping was the more sophisticated way. Do you know a way to scrub files like on Wii ISOs? If you don't know what that is, it is removing the unwanted padding. So what is the purpose of Dumping?

    Thank you for making JHexTool. I used to use it a lot, but lost the file on my computer.

    I don't know about scrubbing ISOs, does it mean the same as 'trimming' maybe? You can trim/shrink files with JHexTool to, say, shrink a 128 KB file to 64 KB. Load up a file and enter the desired file size in the padder panel, e.g 64 KB and click Pad and a .pad file with exactly that size will be created.

    Dumping in the context of JHexTool means to print the bytes of a file to a text file so it can be viewed in a text editor. In combination with the padding, I find it extremely helpful for savegame hacking, which was the main reason for creating this tool. Glad to hear that you find it useful, too!

    I've been trying to convert an Xbox 360 save to a computer save file for a game. I opened the file in an xbox save modder and exported it as a .save, then used JHexTool to shrink the size, so it is identical to a save file I made from the game itself. My converted file still doesn't work though...
