    Oh I forgot to add a step. It should be fixed if you download the latest atmos or kosmos and place it on your sd card.

    Unfortunately that link is dead. Got any pointers where to find it? I make a point of circumventing bullshit like this.

    @gamemasteru03 For step 2, the link leads to an empty folder.

    This is all too bad. Tinfoil was my preferred NSP-installer, but I can no longer recommend using it.

    If installing an application a.) alters button combinations without my consent, and b.) removes features from the CFW I'm using, then it's malware.

    Huh? What is going on here? I have an older version (I guess), because it was working fine until yesterday. Will it now change the button combination if I install something new?

    If you use a new version of Tinfoil and/or HBG with Atmosphere, you are required to use a modified version of Atmosphere that changes button combinations and removes the title override function for launching homebrew outside of applet mode. Forgive my bluntness, but it's incredibly stupid.

    I just noticed. I' will reupload as soon as I can. For now just use the mirror a few posts above.

    I see, so you are forced to update basically, but it wont change the input on its own. I am really new to switch homebrew and it's really confusing with all its rivalry and different groups that want to modify your CFW and stuff like that :wacko:

    You are not forced to update. You are forced to use the modified versions of Atmosphere and Homebrew Menu just because he wants it that way. There is no reason for him to do it. He just does.

    The good news is TheBigPP works just fine and bypasses the malware included with Tinfoil. You can use TheBigPP, or you can use HBG by replacing the tinfoil.nro with the one from TheBigPP.

    I legit just heard from "TheBigPP" today, checked on it, and it utilizes just the same mod as the one we talk about to bypass the DRM. Difference is it downloads from other servers (probably a HBG mirror) and also has 1st party titles.
    For the end user that should be completely irrelevant tho.

    Yeah I tried that as well, but they are slapping their "Pirate-Icon" thingy like EVERYWHERE on the apps and hekate and stuff. So yeah it's an alternative, but a weird one :)


    Sorry, how does he force you to use modded versions? Does a popup show up while using the Installer? Or do the downloaded Apps not work?

    I only use what's in the tinfoil folder and skip everything else.

    For new versions of Tinfoil to run, the modified version of Atmosphere that's included with Tinfoil must be used. Otherwise, Tinfoil refuses to run.

    It's a lot like HBG, but you don't have to use the malware included with stock Tinfoil/HBG.

    The version of Tinfoil included with TheBigPP can also be used to get HBG running without blawar's malware.

    Just so I'm clear, I like blawar and I think he has made a lot of awesome apps. He gets some criticism for things he has done in the past, but this is the first time I've seen him do something I actually think is stupid.

    to fix your problem you have to download tinfoil from the tinfoil website

    Can you not just use the tinfoil from tinfoil.io and change the locations/sources out with the ones used by HBG and theBigPp? Is that too obvious?
