    Good evening people. I'm seeking help with the error I keep coming across.
    This is my first time posting here, so please bare with me if I posted my issue incorrectly.
    I already found similar posts concerning "The software was closed because an error occurred" error but most of them were about the start up of the game.
    My game starts up and after a few minutes of gameplay this error comes up.

    I recently updated from firmware 10.0.1 to 10.0.4 with choidujour
    Updated the the SD card files with the SDsetup site and the latest sigpatches from this thread.
    latest-fs-and-acid-patches-for-kosmos (dot) 562915
    Paper mario installed through goldleaf.
    At the attempt to start the software it prompted the cancel/start software/update.
    I had accidentally clicked update and then turned of the switch.
    My memory is vague concerning what I did afterwards because it's been going on for a week or 2 but I got to boot the game eventually.
    After a few minutes of gameplay the following error message shows up
    "The software was closed because an error occurred"
    I get this message with other games now too

    I'm running 10.0.4|AMS 0.13.0|S
    payload hekate_ctcaer_5.3.0
    SD card exFAT format

    I've tried the following to try and fix this:
    • Install the game from xci instead of NSP
    • Install the game using different methods (Goldleaf, awoo)
    • Install a different game (super smash bros)
    • Delete all the contents of the SD and put again all the Atmosphere/hekate files
    • Use Fusee primary instead of hekate
    • Format the SD card and start over
    • Try a different SD card
    • Upgrade to firmware 10.1.0
    • Using other sigpatches (2.0.0-10.1.0_for_AMS_0.13_and_0.12_and_0.11.1)
    • Restore NAND with an old back up and start over with a formatted SD card.
    • try the sigpatches user w0nd3rb0yfx posted on #333 Jul 4, 2020 in thread latest-fs-and-acid-patches-for-kosmos (dot) 562915/page-17 (uploaded with my ask)
    I tried everything that I could find / think of and I haven't seen any progress or sign of success.
    I don't know what to try anymore to fix this.....
    i would greatly appreciate any help I could get.

    Edit:
    I also read on another thread that someone had a similar problem with that this error would pop up when they reached the title screen of the game. They solved it by turning of cheats with Edizon.
    But I've never used cheats / edizon before.

    I've also tried factory reset, but the error still comes up.

    In the thread latest-fs-and-acid-patches-for-kosmos (dot) 562915/page-20 user mikifantastik98 posted instructions on how to use deepsea boot. #387
    I tried this and everything seemed fixed at first.
    the game booted and I was able to play for a good half hour. The next day I continued playing but then the game crashed again.

    Your SD card is exFAT which is well known to corrupt. Format the SD card and use FAT32 instead. Also ChoiDujour doesn't support any firmware higher than 6.1

    Dear Draxzelex, thank you for your response.I don't understand the ChoiDujour not being supported by firmware higher than 6,1. it still works for me, even-though i'm on firmware 8+.
    And if I can't use ChoiDujour to update the firmware, what do I use?

    ChoiDujourNX is a Switch homebrew app that works with any system version. ChoiDujour is a PC app that doesn't work with newer system versions. He was pointing out that you meant to say ChoiDujourNX.

    That being said, Daybreak has been released, and it's safer than ChoiDujourNX. ChoiDujourNX should no longer be used.

    Thank you for the explanation. Yes, I was using ChoiDujourNX on the switch itself.
    I restored the nand again
    I formatted the SD card to fat32.
    staarted from scratch with SD setup and the patches from gbatemp.net/threads/latest-fs-and-acid-patches-for-kosmos.562915/page-24#post-9155443 again.
    used NSPsplitty on the NSP.
    Updated firmware to 10.1 using ChoiDujourNX (before reading your reply).
    installed the NSP with goldleaf.
    Like when I installed deepsea in a previous attempt, everything seemed fixed.
    i was able to play again for a half hour.
    Put the switch in standby mode for a sec and then continued playing.
    and then I got the error again.
    (Coincidentally it was around the same point in the game as the first crash with deepsea).
    and now the error occurs again after a few minutes of gameplay
    I also just tried to play the game on another account (to see if the error still ahappenes in an early stage of the game) but it also displays the error message after a few minutes of gameplay.

    As a matter of troubleshooting, do the following:
    1. Make sure the SD card is FAT32.
    2. Remove all CFW files/folders from your SD card (that would be folders like /sept/ and /atmosphere/)
    3. Download the latest Atmosphere
    4. Download the latest fusee-primary (next to Atmosphere)
    5. Download these signature patches (for Atmosphere v0.14.1)
    6. Put Atmosphere and the signature patches onto your SD card
    7. Put the SD into your Switch
    8. Enter RCM
    9. Launch Atmosphere using fusee-primary

    Can you try a different sd card? Can't remember where I read about that error, but I get the same error with Zelda botw every so often now that I'm on the new firmware, and I read it was sd related. Maybe try a different/faster card? Something to test/rule out.

    If I were you, I would uninstall and reinstall the problematic games. Getting the NSP from a different source is also recommended.

    Installing over a USB connection is also recommended over splitting the NSP.

    If that doesn't work, my guess would be a problem with the SD reader.

    I installed the NSP with Quark but was met with the same resutl.
    Afterwards I installed the game from another source with Quark.
    It seemed fixed (like with deep sea).
    Was able to play like half an hour. But then the error message appeared again.
    The different source also had an update for the game.
    after installing that, it still crashed.
