I've heard there is a new format of NSP files in eshop. That's why lost in random is still not dumped yet, and why no more heroes 3 is only available because it had cart release.

No word about it on GBAtemp... is it true? Is there a hint of somebody is working on it?

I saw the following quote on the internet. "Last Stop, Lost in Random and No More Heroes 3 (eShop) has been fixed! If you update your Tinfoil over WiFi or get the latest release (R12) from their website (HERE), you will be able to install those games when they get uploaded"

Please don't link to piracy sites.
So I just removed links from your post. I understand you might just copypasted.

EDIT: @blawar nice work!

Yes there is new NSP (in reality just new NCA) format out there.
I can confirm that some titles (Last Stop is what i have analyzed) have the program NCA that fail in hactool and probably in any other pc tools.

The offset supplied by Fs Entries were all far over the size of file.

i suspect (must be confirmed) that an unused field in Fs Headers at offset 0x148 called SparseInfo inform of some math (probably) to found out the right offsets of partitions

This field before was always a 0x30 array of 0 but in those are set.

Probably (also this must be confirmed) use a similar approch as the RomFS patching using virtual and phisical address in some way.

Title installers relying on HOS calls works without too heavy modification (as far as i know tinfoil and DBI installer support this nsp) but pc software gives errors
(hactool fail, my NSP Indexer also)
