I think i've done a very stupid thing. I had about twenty games installed, all via tinfoil. Now, for some reason (aka stupidity) i thought tickets listed in tinfoil are just for reference, so i deleted them all. Now, for every game i try to run, i get the infamous "cheking if software can be played" message followed by "console must be updated". What's even worse, i can't access homebrew menu and tinfoil again to fix it, because when i start games holding R button it won't go further then "console must be updated" message, so the game is not actually run so homebrew menu is not triggered. Anything i could do to fix games and save progress?

Try reinstalling one of the games on your switch and see if it runs. Also never delete your tickets, that's like your permit to use a game or dlc on your switch.

1. Access homebrew menu holding R while entering on Album!
2. Reinstall your games without deleting them, to preserve save data.
3 PLAY!

Launch homebrew through the album app instead.
