Thank you!

There are 3 black icons on the 3DS home screen, have I done something wrong?
Black HOME Menu icons can indicate data corruption. A title with a black icon might have a missing banner or fail to launch.

To check f the SD card is fake or failing:
  1. Copy everything off the card.
  2. Reformat in FAT32 + 32 KB cluster size using Windows File Explorer or guiformat (if bigger than 32 GB).
  3. Full Write + Verify the empty card with H2testw.
Any reported error requires replacing the card and going back to step 1.

***

Another cause is improperly deleting titles directly off the SD card without using the correct methods:

Correct:
  • FBI → Titles → Example Title → Delete Title And Ticket
  • System Settings → Data Management → Nintendo 3DS → [ Software | Extra Data | Downloadable Content ] → Example Title → Delete
Wrong:
  • sdmc:/Nintendo 3DS/<ID0>/<ID1>/title/000400XX/ → delete the individual 00####00 TitleID subfolder by computer or GodMode9.
***

If nothing was determined wrong, use Cthulhu to refresh the icon cache.
  • Cthulhu:
    • Shared icon cache management. → Clear shared icon cache.
    • HOME Menu icon cache management. → Clear HOME Menu icon cache.
