I have trouble installing other regions like Europe V-Rally 4 or Dead by Daylight will not install on USA Switch im on 1.3.3 Awoo using NS-USBLoader v4.5 but I'm surprise that goldleaf did install V-Rally 4 with Quark. Maybe Im doing wrong with Awoo setting?:unsure:

what tool do i need to use to split xci files for FAT32?
i used XCI-Cutter but the installer does not recognize the files at all.

Well there's easier methods, (awoo currently doesn't do this) like you can install directly from and external hdd/flash drive, also installing via usb or ftp. The downside bout installing from the sd card is you need double the space of the game file (for example, ZBoTW is 10gb, so you would need 20gb, 10gb for the xci files and 10gb for the game installed.)

The only other program I personally know of for splitting is ns-usbloader.

after putting the split files in a folder with .xci or .nsp ending and setting archive bits, i get the error:
Failed to install game.xci
std:bad_alloc

i have testet splittting with splitNSP.py aswell, but same issue.

I wanted to ask, does this installer allow users to delete/copy/paste/move files that are not NSPs?
I actually used Goldleaf a lot due to this sole reason, not much as an NSP installer, so I wanted to know if Awoo allows for such a thing as well, since I'd like to use the very same installer for SD file browsing as well, to avoid using several apps for this.

I'm having trouble installing anything since I last updated atmosphere & firmware (firmware 11.0.1 AMS M.18.1 awoo 1.3.4). I've got the latest sigpatches from TJ (am booting fusee-primary). I don't think this is an awoo problem, goldleaf choked too, but maybe someone can help me figure it out. The first time I try to install an nsp awoo says "Failed to install", "OpenFileSystemWithId:124: Failed to open file system with id: :SdCardContent://registered/000000FB/<longnumber>.nca. Error code: 0x00000202". If I try the same nsp again, it throws a fatal error, 2162-0002 program: 0100000000000012. Any ideas? Cheers!

Awoo haven't updated in a while, I think it's better to go with TinWoo for now.
Thanks for the suggestion, but the newest TinWoo on its github is only 15 days newer than the newest Awoo (both from December), and it does the same as I described above. I just tried DBI as well, and it gave the same error code, but described it as FatFS Corruption, so maybe I'll try some disk repair shit just in case.

E: yup, doing a scandisk or whatever fixed it, everything installing as normal now. Hope that doesn't happen again, I'm careful to unmount before ejecting and all that, but hopefully now I'm done with the whole Android 10 install I can get back to just leaving the card in the Switch to avoid problems.
