    Hello guys. I am having trouble with the latest version of Tinfoil... I am getting the "The install environment is corrupt" error when starting it. I copied all the contents from the zipped file into my sd card, but no good.

    Switching to Tinfoil as I am tired of Goldleaf getting stuck at 99% with CTR's game update install through USB with Goldtree.

    I have the latest atmosphere (0.9.3) with latest sigpatches on 7.0.1 Firmware.

    Thank you for your attention.

    (Edit) I just tested Lithium and it works perfectly, but can't get Tinfoil to work (or am I just wasting my time as Lithuim should be enough?)... My only concern is that at the time of installing NSPs from X or Y site, it pops up a warning of possibly modified NSPs, but also have read it sometimes is because it may be a conversion from XCI to NSP... Should I avoid installing anyway and find something else that Lithium identifies as safe? (I feel it's not too clear how to identify for yourself that an NSP is truly safe... should I better start targeting XCI instead of NSP? And yep, I have my NAND Backup in any case)

    (Update) According to the conversation in Goldleaf's repository issue 347 (XorTroll/Goldleaf/issues/347) I found out that unplugging USB, then closing the usb server (goldtree or quark), and then reconnecting and reopening the usb server allows to finish the install

    install environment corrupted means the entire zip file was not extracted.

    The only thing I didn't extract was their fork of Atmosphere ... which isn't happening.

    To use the latest version of Tinfoil (5.1.0), you must use the dumbed-down fork of Atmosphere that's included. There's currently no way around that, since @blawar isn't the brightest bulb in the box. Alternatively, you could use Tinfoil 5.0.0 instead, which doesn't have that requirement.

    Yes, but support for tinfoilmod has ended. It will not be getting anymore updates, and it only supports 5.0.0, which doesn't have the enforcement problem to begin with.
