Can you walk me through what steps you took? And at what point it gives you that error? also:
-what firmware are you on
-do you have patches?
-what version of tinfoil are you using, and have you attempted to use any other installer (awoo, etc)?

You have another thread with this post (I'm going to remove the other thread, as it appears to be the same issue):

how do I install tinfoil through the applet version
"I have the applet version but it says I need to enable more storage space to it. I have plenty of space (54 gigabites) on my sd card. so what should I do"[\QUOTE]

Use TinWoo or Awoo instead. They provide support for more formats and solid USB support to install from PC and I haven't had problems at all with failed installs or the app not running like with Tinfoil.

Awoo and TinWoo are other installers that can install nsp, nsz, xci, xcz that are single files or split. They both offer installation from USB flash/hdd or PC and both methods work much better than any other installer I've used. TinWoo has more support for filesystem formats so it is like Awoo+.

I prefer install the NSP file (works 100%)

TINFOIL LINK APPLET MODE
https://tinfoil.media/repo/Tinfoil Applet Mode [12.10][v12].zip
https://tinfoil.media/repo/Tinfoil [050000BADDAD0000][12.10][v12].nsp

SIGPATCHES LINK

Hi I have same experience with you, this is step what I did from above solution:

1. For SIGNPATCHES LINK ==> I used fusee.zip
2. RCM mode I use fusee-primary.bin with TegraRcmGUI
3. Install Tinfoil with .nsp file
