    So I had a perfectly working cartridge of Xenoblade 2, with the latest update and DLC, bought from eshop without CFW. I recently set up a CFW, but I keep a seperate SD for it, and another for my OFW and purchased games, Which XC2 was installed on. I decided to get an NSP of the update and DLC, so I could play it without swapping the SD, but when the game started it said DLC was missing, and I had to redownload it to start playing. I installed the latest NSP update and DLC, so I don't know why this happened, but I gave up anyway decided to deal with swapping SDs. I put my OFW SD in and XC2 had to reinstall, strangely. I risked going online to update it and download the DLC again, but now the game simply crashes upon startup. I'm thinking this is either because maybe tickets from the NSP could have messed with something, or is just a software bug, considering this wouldn't happen under normal circumstances. What are my options? Is there a method of deleting these possibly conflicting tickets, or am I just locked out of the game now?

    Tinfoil has an option for you to delete tickets under Ticket Management.

    Thanks, I'll try that. Also, do tickets save to internal storage? That would explain why the game doesn't work on a different SD.

    Yes, they are saved to the SYS partition of the Switch which you cannot normally access without hacking the console. All other content are either installed into the USER partition or the SD card.

    Have another issue now. I managed to delete the common ticket, but there are so many personalized tickets listed that the console crashes trying to list them. Is there any other homebrew program that can delete tickets?

    Use dz to delete it
    Dz doesn't crash when you have a lot of tickets

    Thanks, the problem seems to have been fixed after deleting the tickets! Strangely, I had to delete the game data multiple times for it to eventually work.

    Sorry to bump this post again, but the game still crashes when downloading the DLC. After the update it works fine, it just won't let me continue my save because I need to install my purchased DLC, but after doing that the game just crashes again. I deleted 2 XC2 tickets, so could one have been from my actual purchase and causing this issue? I found another post with someone in the same situation (https://gbatemp.net/threads/installing-dlc-crash-on-launch.514860/) but that was with an NSP, while I'm downloading from my own purchase on the eshop.
