    As the title says I'm having install errors after I think I have hit the install limit, I'll explain.

    Hit the download limit I think (managed to get to page 60 in data management) only realised when I went to download a game from the eshop but said I didn't have enough space left so deleted a few games I don't play anymore to make some space but...

    Now I download something from the FreeShop or eShop it installs as normal but when I go to turn off and turn on my N3DS the last app/game I install is now wrapped up again and not where I placed it.

    Can't figure out what to do so can anyone help solve this?

    It's not a problem or glitch.

    It looks like you have installed OVER 300 titles. The HOME Menu only has 300 spaces.

    Say you have 304 titles installed.
    When you erase four titles, the other four will be revived onto the home menu in presents as they had to be removed to make room for the most recent titles you have installed.
    Save data and stuff is fine.

    Delete some more games, then the problem should be "fixed".

    Yes I realised I hit the 300 mark but I already have uninstalled a load of games (nearly half as on page 37 under software management) but the problem is there so would call it a glitch

    Okay then. That's weird. I don't know what happened.

    FYI, if you have any badges, they also take up space.

    You could also try making a home menu layout and restoring it. It may fix the problem, but if not then it's still a remedy. :/

    I have noticed that if I change my theme (from black to white) and turn my N3DS off then on again the N3DS goes back to the black theme and not the white theme I set.

    Sorry admins for this post but just keeping people informed

    The real question is why do you have 300 titles installed? I HIGHLY doubt you've played them all, and I also doubt you ever will play them all. At this point it seems to be more an issue of obsessive pirating or something, because if you honestly have 300 and can only manage to delete a few, you probably need help. Like are you pirating just to pirate, without using most of what you have installed? How do you even manage to find what you want to use?
