    So I DL something from homebrew browser, I choose to use my USB drive not my SD. I know it detects my USB drive because it specifies the free space on the bottom, but right after DLing an app, it immediately says failed to extract files. My USB drive has the folder apps in root, so that's not a solution. Any ideas?

    oh, also it says on the loading screen of homebrew browser that it "mounts" the usb drive...

    I registered just to reply to you. Its because you disabled SD and then immediately attempted to download to USB. You have to restart the Homebrew Browser... it will ask you if it can install again. Say yes, and let it reinstall to your USB drive. Then, the extractions will work.

    Good luck!

    No problem. Your post was the first thing I came across searching online for the exact same problem. I just happened to restart it and that fixed it. So, I am sure there will be others coming here from a Google search. Hope to save them, and yourself some trouble.
