    Gambia, The
    Hey fellow users. I have created a little tool which helps you using HANS (or generally romhacking).
    For now it's only able to extract exe-/romfs files dumped for example with braindump by @neobrain.
    I'll of course add some more features, just tell me what you would like and I'll try my best. Originally this was just for me because I wanted a simpler way to extract those files. But I thought why not release it? :D So maybe this could become a big tool with your help.

    ctrtool by neimod and 3DSGuy.

    Source: https://github.com/VegaRoXas/HANSHelper
    Download: https://github.com/VegaRoXas/HANSHelper/releases/download/v0.2/HANSHelper.exe
    .NET4.0 is required.



    Changelog:
    v0.1 - Extracting exe-/romfs files.
    v0.2 - Building .romfs files. (Thanks to @SciresM)

    I'd also like to know how this works. Also would it be possible to implement deleting the first 1000 bytes after building the modified romFS?

    Would a feature to make a HANS shortcut to go w/ the edited rom be feasable?

    For a notepad kind of video, it's a pretty good one. Thanks for the explanation! :)
