    Hello everyone, my objective is randomizing my romfs of Pokemon Alpha Sapphire with PK3DS and using it via Hans.

    My steps were:
    - Dumping my Pokemon Alpha Sapphire Data with my old Gateway
    - Decrypting the data
    (The same steps were repeated by me with a .cia after failing)
    => Result: exe and romfs folders ready for PK3DS

    - Randomizing this with PK3DS and rebuilding the romfs
    - Changing the name to "0011C500.romfs" and deleting the first 0x1000 bytes

    After that I put it in the /hans/ folder and loaded my Alpha Sapphire with the romfs file.

    The title screen works and I get into the menu. Since it was a new cartridge, I saw the introduction. When I had to play though, I just got a White Screen and then nothing happened.
    I tried to play the beginning and then use Hans, but then I just get a Black Screen.

    Does someone know, if I did something wrong and how to fix this? Any help would be appreciated :)

    Don't change Type Chart, Starters or Gift Pokemon. As the little I'm aware they're saved on the "DLLs" used by the game, and they refuse to work after modifications. I tried to use this tool to fix them before rebuilding romfs:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-cro_tool-cro-resigner-for-rom-hacks-etc.395148/
    But as the OP said they won't work with rom-fs replacement (the one used by Hans), and in fact, using it makes the game to not boot at all.

    So for now I've no idea of how to succesfully use the options under "CRO Editing Tools" in pk3DS.

    I actually changed the starter, I will try to do it without them and will give an update, when I'm done!

    Yeah I tried it several times and no luck. However ramdomizing abilities, moves, wild Pokemon, trainers, etc... works just fine.

    Do you think that would apply to XY as well? I changed the starters in my Pokemon X and everything loaded fine after the title screen.

    Yeah, now it works. Thanks! Sadly the starters aren't randomized, but I guess nothing I can do.

    I really haven't tried. I've only dumped and hacked my Saphire ROM. Would had to dump my Y cardtridge too. May give it a shot later, since a new version of braindump is out.
