Hi everyone, I'm install games with 2 microUSB (64gb, 256gb) by Tinfoil and USB Tinfoil (ver 8.00), SXinstaller (ver 3.0.2) and by album insaller, format I tried istall (nsp-xci-nsz), When I select the user account I just get a black screen with the error "The Software was closed because an error occurred".
Every other game I have works fine on my Switch, and I'm using exFAT, and don't use any cheats/mods.

I've already read through a bunch of posts from people with the same problem, and I've already followed in their step by step trying different files, install methods, deleting tickets, etc. It seems like a lot of those posts were never resolved .

Using SXOS 3.0.5 beta | system version 10.2.0

the games that no longer work for me are:
- cat quest with update (1.0.1)
- rime with update (1.0.3)
- captain toad with dlcs & update (1.3.0)
- little nightmare with dlcs & update (1.0.2)

Things I've tried also:
• Deleted my save data
• Using another account to boot the game
• Formatting my SD card and starting a new
• Unstalling games by Tinfoil/Goldleaf

EDIT: its worked to me with all my games had same issue like this "The software was closed because an error occurred" by maintenance mode method It is as follows : enter sx menu first with power + plus and then pressing plus and minus button then enter CFW for exit just press power botton again and power up My switch again and issue is resolved

Any advice?
Format the SD card to FAT32.

This problem plagued me for a while. Can't make either Doom Eternal or Diablo 3 work. Did firmware updates, switched between 10.2.0, 11.0, 10.0.2 and between sxos 3.1.0 and 3.0.5. Reformatted my sdcard, reinstalled, downloaded from different sources.
And holy... maintenance mode fixed it. Thanks a bunch! Now everything works on my V2 with sxos 3.1.0, firmware 10.2.0.
Games tested with latest dlc/update:
Doom Eternal
Fenyx
MH Rise Demo
Diablo 3
Hyrule Warriors AoC
Pokemon Sword
Bloodstained
Hades
... basically everything now. :D
