    I have installed two DLCs, every time I reboot my system, the DLCs are gone! :(
    Along side with all the DLCs I have already had before. :/

    I'm using redNAND, and WUPInstaller Mod Y.

    And surprisingly enough, I have lost about 1 GB of free space!

    So, the DLCs are gone for you too?

    Weird, I thought I did something wrong.

    I found out that the DLCs didn't disappear, they're still there but the system can't recognize them. (Hence why they don't show in game nor Data Management)

    Since I can't find the DLCs in Data Management, I'll figure out a way to delete them using iosuhax.

    Actually there is a guy who every time someone says that Rednand is unstable or not user friendly jumps in like "Guys rednand is totally unstable and user friendly"

    Hmm.. for me the DLC I installed is still there... Here's how I did it:

    Downloaded through FunKiiU
    Installed through sysConfigTool in redNAND

    I've rebooted my system several times now and it seems to stick for me. My sysNAND and redNAND are linked (Didn't format sysNAND after redNAND setup).

    Hmmm, maybe a protection like the 3DS, but this time it checks for DLCs at boot? I don't have this problem, I can play MK8 DLCs fine after a reboot!

    maybe it's a similar thing like 3ds, where if you had your own ticket, it will get removed, and if not, it will stay?
    maybe :)

    Mario Kart DLC gone for me too after reboot.

    I have "unlinked" nands and installed it with wupinstaller.

    Gonna try fresh rednand without formatting sysnand, and installing with sysconfig tool.

    Seems like un-linking the NANDs does this... :/

    weird, i would have thought unlinking would prevent it...
    so, what are the risks/downsides of not unlinking?

    Your console may not boot because of some titles not having valid signatures

    may? so only sometimes?
    this is confirmed, or just guessing?

    i doubt there is ap that kills the console if a ticket isn't legit... but i'm not sure.

    It has been recommended by devs to un-link your NANDs.

    And I spent 3-4 hour's yesterday removing rednad & formatting sysnand so that I could set it up again to unlink on a fresh sysnand/rednand setup... I may just start again & leave them linked this time around because I have had/heard of nothing but problem's after unlinking.

    I guess the best solution for stability & to get everything working (Or at least most things), Is to leave nands linked, But be EXTRA careful when messing with rednand (Not mistaking sysnand to be rednand), & everything should be "fine".
