    I'm trying to install a bunch of nsp games which i put into the /tinfoil/nsp folder on the root of my sd card.

    For some reason when i open tinfoil 0.2.1, when i go into title management/install NSP or verify NSP i get an ERROR?

    "OpwnSiewctory:133: Failed to open directory/tinfoil/nsp. Error code 0x00000702"

    Can anyone help me please?

    I think that the 'tinfoil/nsp' needs to be in the switch folder, not root

    Sorry, made a mistake. Tinfoil.nro goes in the switch folder, not inside another folder. Create a tinfoil folder in the root in the root of the sd and then a nsp folder inside it. Place nsp files there.
    Your issue is that your tinfoil.nro is inside a folder inside the switch folder. Needs to be in the root of the switch folder

    Im still getting the same error doing that :(

    So On the Root of my SD Card i have a folder called "tinfoil" in that i have "extracted, nsp and ticket" folders and i put the nsp files in "nsp" folder. In the "Switch folder" on the root of my sd card i put the "Tinfoil.nro" file on, with another Tinfoil folder there.

    Is this how it's supposed to be?

    No tinfoil folder in the switch folder, only the nro file there

    Hey what is your SD card layout?
    What firmware are you using?
    What version of tinfoil are you using?

    do you mind sending me a screenshot of your sd card and the files in the root of the sd card, the switch folder and the tinfoil folder?

    Also did an older build of tinfoil work?

    and inside the tinfoil folder is a nsp folder?

    so SD:\tinfoil\nsp\game.nsp?

    Edit: You can find the older versions of tinfoil HERE
