    A mysterious app with no title, no banner, and just a black square for the icon has mysteriously appeared on my emunand right after I -didn't- install anything. Quite the mystery. I need to isolate it and destroy it. HNI_0001.JPG

    I used to get (Several) of those when i installed CIA's, you can go to Data management to remove them (i think)

    Don't know much about emunands, but does the title show up in the title menu on the homebrew launcher? If so, launch it with the grid launcher, check bootlog.txt on the SD card, and get the title ID.

    i never... because i was experimenting with emunands etc.

    but if you go in data management you might see them there to delete..... maybe?

    Amloast everywhere i see people installing games to NAND instead of SD with FBI. Please use BigBlueMenu instead or try to remember that Destination NAND is just for NAND files just like agb_firm or the patched one. SD destination is for everything else.

    It may happen because of other things, but amloast every case it's because of people installing games with FBI to destination NAND.

    You can try install them to a formatted emuNAND destination SD so you can see the titleIDs, memorize them and remove them from destination nand on your emunand. (make a backup first)

    OMG that's an annoying problem :/ , i hope you find a way..... but don't take the risk and destroy your sysnand for a mere unknown black icon...... it doesn't deserve it .

    There have been previous threads on this topic, try searching the forum for "black square" to see if there was a solution found.

    They are extra data. They range from 1 KB to 1 MB. I know they are annoying. I cannot remove them, so I made a special 3ds folder just for them.

    I had some on both emunand and sysnand, and as has been mentioned earlier they were always from accidental installs to nand rather than sd.
    I was able to get rid of all of mine from both emu and sys nands by carefully searching titles with bigblue/devmenu (double checking titles on 3dsdb) and deleting them.

    still sounds risky for systemnand (as im like s a special needs kid when it comes to 3ds stuff) i think i will just leave them in a folder and continue to ignore them until the day having them is a real problem
    thanks anyway :mthr:
