    We prove here the Martino-Priddy conjecture at the prime \(2\): the \(2\)-completions of the classifying spaces of two finite groups \(G\) and \(G'\) are homotopy equivalent if and only if there is an isomorphism between their Sylow \(2\)-subgroups which preserves fusion. This is a consequence of a technical algebraic result, which says that for a finite group \(G\), the second higher derived functor of the inverse limit vanishes for a certain functor \(\mathcal{Z}_G\) on the \(2\)-subgroup orbit category of \(G\). The proof of this result uses the classification theorem for finite simple groups.
