    I'm trying to get Pokemon Neo Y with Hans but everytime I put Romfs --> SD to Yes. I get "Romfs path (INVALID)" each time I try I keep on getting that same error. Any fixes?

    It should give you a filepath- root, then a folder named hans, then a file with a specific title code in the form of a .romfs. I'm not sure of Y\Neo Y's, but for example, Smash 4 requests the file be sd:/hans/000edf00.romfs

    Dude, i was getting the same eroor, for Neo Y too. I goofed up and forgot to cut the first 0x0FF0 (0x1000) lines in HxD.

    Same thing happened to me, https://smealum.github.io/ninjhax2/starter.zip download smea's updated starter kit. When you go into HANs it should allow you to choose the game, just update replace all files with the updated pack. Go back to HANs and it should allow you to load up "said game"

    what exactly are you doing @_@? Did you extract Pokemon Y's romfs and replace it's files w/ Pokemon Neo Y?

    Gambia, The
    Dump your game with braindump, extract it via romfs extractor (as admin). The romfs_ folder is created. Delete the '_' from the folder. Put the neo x/y romfs in the romfs folder from your dump and overwrite anything. Start the romfs builder as admin and in the end. Type the titleid on it and .romfs. (example: 0078D900.romfs) after this, start the app HxD and open the *.romfs data that you create. Press Ctrl+e and type on the end offset line "FFF" and delete it. Save it and put it on ms0:/Hans.

    On the Hans app change the JAP region to "---" and change "romfs -> SD" to OK and start it. If it doesn't work, dump your pokemon x/y game again

    I think I know what you are doing wrong. You are just putting the Neo Y romfs on your sd card. What you have to do is use braindump to dump out romfs.bin from your cartridge / eShop version, unpack it, and then combine it with the Neo Y folder you downloaded. Repack the new romfs folder and place it on your SD:/Hans folder. (with the correct name of course)

    Happy Rom Hacking!

    I got the problem fixed
    Thanks for helping :)
    I just made a mistake
    I named it the wrong thing, I forgot to add a 0 to it and also put the .bak file in that HxD makes.
