If you get error 2168-0002 or similar errors when trying to use homebrew apps, or trying to install any .nro's or nsp's, this is what I did to fix it. After days of throwing everything at the damn thing, I'm up and running and back to normal. I'll list everything I did, but I'm pretty sure what fixed it is installing ReinX and removing atmosphere AND/OR upgrading my firmware.

  • First thing I did was remove Atmosphere and tried setting it up from a fresh download.
  • After that didn't work, I tried launching the homebrew app store by running the nro through goldleaf (people online were saying you have to do this because there's not enough memory in applet mode).
  • After that also didn't work and I tried to weasel my way around it 6 ways from Sunday, I nuked my sd card totally reformatted. First I formatted through the Switch's options, then I formatted to FAT32 via PC. Then I tried building a whole new SD card from the set-up. Surely it would work this time.
  • You get the idea by now it didn't work of course it didn't. So then I tried just installing ReinX and hbmenu to see if I could do that.
  • It worked! Just kidding. It didn't work either. At first. First it wouldn't let me into the menu at all. Title override was not functioning. I read that you can get around this by using hekate, so I installed all that stuff. This caused ReinX to hang after the first splash image. Something told me I should try again, but copy over the ReinX files from the sd builder with the files I had downloaded directly from ReinX's website.
Finally I was able to get into the menu, get into the app store, and tried installing something. After homebrew installs causing my Switch to crash 379 times I just knew it was going to crash again. But it didn't. What a freaking escapade just to use a different SD card.

Only problem I have now is that Goldbricks either freezes when I connect to USB, or it can't find any files. I'm using an alternative method that works fine, though.


The problem started after I tried using a new SD.

I was not able to do a title override, it just launched the app as normal no matter what. I ended up completely stripping the sd card completely, and putting vanilla atmosphere on there instead of kosmos and haven't had issues since.

Goldleaf is arguably the worst title installer because of the reasons you just mentioned.
