    Hi, since the app store is becoming more and more filled with apps, it's revealed a race condition in my asynchronous icon fetching code. This was harder to see when there were fewer apps, and more apparent the further you are from the main server in the UK.

    I don't know. It's an annoying bug and I've been trying to get to the root of it since it started popping up more frequently. If anyone wants to help me with this matter, populateIconCache is the troublemaker function (currently it's commented out on master).

    I only recently started using this great piece of homebrew, however I noticed that (for me anyway) it tends to freeze quite a lot and lock up, when I load it the music plays etc.. but if I try scrolling up or down to see more apps it just sits there playing music and not scrolling

    I updated to the latest version to see if this made a difference but sadly not

    I haven't experienced any problem with any other homebrew and wanted to see if it is just me, if others suffer with this issue or if there is a known fix

    Thanks

    Yikes, well, I'll definitely avoid that shady app and stick with the ones I trust.

    You tried data recovery software? I'd only need the first chunk of the file.

    Wait, "almost" bricked? It either did or it didn't...

    EVERYONE POSTING ABOUT THE BRICKING .ELF FILE - ITS FAKE AND THE ORIGINAL THREAD WAS CLOSED BY A MOD. FILO97 HAS NO EVIDENCE AND IS CLEARLY LYING TO COVER UP MORE LIES.

    So he recognized a malicious app (which would do all it could to prevent this), deleted his evidence, and made an all-caps GBATemp post about it.

    @Filo97, don't forget the recycle bin!

    At least on windows 10 deleting a file off an sd card makes it gone for good. No Recycle bin.

    A quick google search for "IOSU Title Deleter" didn't find anything at all. The closest thing I can find is AnyTitleDeleter, which is an original Wii homebrew app.

    What exactly are you talking about?

    It's so obviously fake. There is no title deleter, there never was a malicious app, filo97 just wants attention.

    if you let it load ,, it should have a more stability... wait till all icons are displayed and see if your success increases.
