    God damn it, full dump got the error 1 at 90%, it was roughly an hour in. When I retry will it do the entire thing again? It was dumping in 2GB parts

    That's the clever thing the partial dumping does.
    It will continue from the last part it was trying to dump.

    I'll put a guide tomorrow in OP for all these tricks.

    But you said you have to edit some file with hex editor to do this right?

    Only if you have exfat, enough space and you want to force partial dumping.

    And another time I said it, it was because there was a need for the dumping to restart from a certain point in an older version. Which now it's obsolete.

    Yeah I'm on FAT32. It looks like its restarting from 0% but its going quicker so it might just be checking the files I guess

    Strange. Did you ignore the error instead of aborting?

    I'm always getting this fatal error 1 when I'm reaching around 80 - 88%. I'm only getting 10 parts and the 11th isn't full dumped. I don't know what to do. I tried to type on the partial.idx "0B" (what stands for 11) but it starts from the beginning again

    No, I aborted. The files were still on my SD card. Currently halfway through the dump. Hopefully it completes this time.

    Edit: nope, it happened again at exactly 90%. I even did the whole chkdsk thing before attempting a second time. It's the 13th part it always errors on if that makes a difference

    And both @whyyes and @Justin20020 the dump starts from the beginning instead of the failing part when you try again? Hmm..

    Edit:
    I'll check the code when possible. Maybe I botched the logic somewhere.

    Edit2:
    OK found the problem.
    I write the idx file after the fatal error. And because the sectors there are problematic, it can't write it.
    I'll change it to write it on the start of every part. This will fix it.
    I'm away from my build machine, so it will take some hours.
    But still creating the file should force it anyway, if there's not enough space.

    Anyway, I'll change the logic and it will fix the starts from 1st part after fatal error bug.

    How about adding exfat support like here http://github.com/sweetlilmre/hekate/releases I've just tried that payload and it allows me to use exfat for nand backups even though my Switch doesn't have the exfat patch and complains about it in the OS.

    I want to remind that I'm searching for testers for the above.
    Specifically, if 1 and 2.x work and if 4.x still works.
    Use the special payload attached there.

    Hi, I did a dump of my 4.0.1 switch nand and the rawNand.bin file (after joining back all 15 spare parts together) appears to be only 30,845,304,832 bytes instead of the 31,268,536,320 bytes that it should normally be... Does that mean there is something wrong with the dump file ?
    (When dumping i got 3 errors but only with 1 try each and the dump was done completely)
    Thank's

    Part 13 is wrong. But maybe others also.
    You remember what the errors said?

    Can't have me looking at code for old versions bugs. :/
    v1.3 the way to go.
    If you still have problems, mark the error.
