    Ive spent hours on end today trying to resolve my issue and it just won’t seem to get fixed. What happens is when I put my switch into tinfoil usb install it stays stuck in the waiting for header screen. I can’t back out of it with b, just the home button. I’ve tried reinstalling kosmos, reinstalled tinfoil and deleted it several times. Tried aluminum foil as well and it sent headers but no results appeared on the switch. I type the proper command in cmd prompt. </python usb_install_pc.py nsp> After I hit enter, my whole switch crashes. If I could receive some assistance that would be pretty keen and much appreciated.

    Just to make sure you're putting the nsp in a folder called nsp correct?

    It might help to just start from scratch and use this youtube video. It works perfectly. Just make sure you click on youtube to get the file links below the video.

    Indeed I did. The command requires the you enter the folder where the files are.

    Perhaps you have too many games inside the folder? The same thing happened to me when I had more than 16gb(?) worth of games.
    I had to transfer them over bit by bit and even then 2 of my games ended up being corrupted :/

    Yup that was exactly my problem. Thank you very much. [edit] Welp now after installing two nsps, it wont work anymore. Regardless of how many are in the folder..
