Hello guys, I've got a question.

I've tried to execute a dump of a personal game and when I press Start NSP dump process a red error appears in the screen:
readFileFromSecureHfs0PartitionByName: unable to find "/31e1...nca" in Secure HFS0 partition!
readNcaDataByContentId: failed to read 3072 bytes block at offset...
dumpNintendoSubmissionPackage: failed to read header from NCA "3e1..."

Someone else faced that problem?

Trying to dump Xenoblade Chronicles 2's RomFS, with "Split files bigger than 4 GiB (FAT32 support)" - Yes; "Save data to CFW directory (LayeredFS)" - Yes; and "Use update/DLC" - v983040 (0.0.15.0) (UPD) (SD card).
However, I get an error, as seen in the second photo.
What do I do?

Redownload the NRO from the GitHub repository. There was a silent update last month.

This is kind of a noobish question. I collect physical games and just bought a second switch (unpatched) to run cfw on. I would like to dump all of my physical games to my nas for archive purposes. Is there a good guide to making proper dumps using this tool? I would like to get these dumps right the first time and not have to go through re-dumping because I did something wrong.

Follow the guides from No-Intro:

Awesome. Thank you. I understand all of this except the need to use a modified version to dump the initial area. Can you possibly help me understand what the output file card_key_area.bin is for and what to do with it? Thanks again!!!
You can safely skip that part. It's a game-specific area from the gamecard that can't be dumped through common means - folks from No-Intro only started to dat it some months ago.

It's not required at all by any XCI tools.

Is there a tutorial on making dumps that can pass NCA signature verification? https://wiki.no-intro.org/index.php?title=Nintendo_Switch_Dumping_Guide doesn't include this part, I think. I tried to make some installed eMMC NSP dumps but they can't pass Tinfoil check. Should I turn some options ON/OFF (remove console-specific data; ticket-less; change NPDM RSA key/sig)? I enabled/disabled the RSA key/sig option but neither output can pass Tinfoil. Thanks!

Both ticket-less and NPDM RSA key/sig options must be disabled. Remove console-specific data is optional.

By the way, you're looking for this tutorial.

Thank you for the suggestion! I tried with both disabled but Tinfoil still gives me the error. Is there anything else I should do? The dump is about 120MB so there's no split.

Did you legally acquire these games? Sounds like you installed XCI to NSP conversions, which would explain why even though the options that tinker with NCAs are disabled, the signatures still don't match.
