Hey everyone. Ive had problems installing nsp, xci and nsz files. Im on OFW 13.0.0, Atmosphere v1.1.1, using package3, and the latest sigpatches (for use with hekate). Awoo Installer and tinwoo give the "Invalid NCA signature detected" warning. When dismissing the warning on awoo and continuing to installation, an error is shown saying "failed to open filesystem". Ive tried with DBI and while they installed, they were shown as loading icons, inaccessible from the home screen and DBI showed them installed as "???". Surprisingly I could install smaller game nsps, but haven't had success with any nintendo developed game. I have no idea if its the sigpatches or the files missing signatures. Ive tried everything, any help?

Where did you download the patches from? Not all places have the updated patches.

Update: I was able to get around with this error, steps:

1) copy fusee.bin to bootloader/payloads folder
2) Launch Hekate by 'Reboot to Payload' and the load fusee.bin from "Payloads", don't try to start CFW from "Launch".
3) Now everything works like normal, almost all the games that were corrupted now are playable.

Tried the ones listed on the sigpatches thread and ITotalJustice's ones. Both gave the same result. What ultimately solved my issue was downloading the nsp from another source, which had all the valid nca's.

Sounds like you downloaded the fusee patches instead of the hekate ones.

I did downloaded hekate ones, and this issue didn't happen to me when updating to 12.x or 11.x (I always used hekate bootloader).

Maybe something is wrong in the hekate sigpatches? I don't know.

Well OP was able to resolve the issue by trying another source so download the .NSP file from somewhere else.
