    @CTCaer, did you find someone with 4.x to test your beta of 1.5? I'm running 4.1.0.

    I already successfully dumped NAND with 1.3, but I recently found an older 64 GB SD card I could use to test 1.5 if you need more testers.

    Tests are always welcomed. There are so many edge cases that you can never be sure. Launching homebrew through album in 4.1.0 is confirmed to be still working as it is in 1.3.
    But additional confirmation is always welcomed.

    You can test your other sdcard tomorrow when I'll come back home and release final 1.5.

    will this automatically create multiple files if the sd card is big enough but formatted to fat32?

    it always create multiple parts in FAT32, because of the filesystem's limitations on filesize

    @CTCaer would it be possible to integrate a tool to erase error logs from nand?

    thanks, after running into google results mentioning there's multiple versions with various functions i wasn't sure if it wouldn't maybe try to make a full file and just crash at some point.
    the raw one worked and most of the other dumps did too, but one of them (and i unfortunately don't know which one it was) gave a fatal error at around 70%. should i just ignore that error / do i even need that dump with the full raw dump?


    on a different note, anyone got a suggestion for a place to upload the nand for backup purposes?

    AutoRCM works perfectly using Reisyukaku's tool.

    Do you have to dump CTCaer if you changed SD cards?

    Probably yes. But this is easier done through Atmosphere, because of existing functions.
    Yes, but I will not. It's hardcoded and I learned my lesson with v1.0 release of hekate ctcaer mod.
    I'll try to port rajkosto's way of doing it.
    First of all, I need to release 1.5 first. The code is ready since Saturday.
    If you mean to dump the nand again, depends. Your dump is a actually a backup. It's on you, how relevant (updated), you want to be.

    New version v1.5 released

    Check OP for change log and download link.


    Additionally, OP will be transformed into a guide that explains all hekate's features and tricks.

    Looking good, thanks! Second attempt got me a successful rawnand backup (first attempt got a low level disk i/o error, dunno why, but reformatted and tried again). I was surprised to see as it was starting that it said it was using partial dumping mode on both attempts (on an exfat 32gig), but it turned out that was just a stray message and it actually did the whole dump to the single rawnand.bin

    I have enough room for it to not do it in parts, but it still does (It's exfat i checked)
    EDIT: Nvm, it worked out

    Yeah it's stray message.
    Code:
    else
            gfx_printf(&gfx_con, "%kContinuing with partial dumping...%k\n\n", 0xFF00BAFF, 0xFFFFFFFF);
    Should be
    Code:
    else if (isSmallSdCard)
            gfx_printf(&gfx_con, "%kContinuing with partial dumping...%k\n\n", 0xFF00BAFF, 0xFFFFFFFF);

    EDIT:
    NVM, you saw it.
