SX OS v2.2 BETA with Docked USB Drive Support and Many More Improvements

SXOS22Again, TX team announced SX OS v2.2 BETA with a much anticipated new feature as well as various improvements to existing functionality for SX OS. For the changes, please find as below:

1.Docked USB drive support!
Yes. You read it right. You can now plug a USB mass storage device into your switch’ dock and load XCI or install NSP content from there directly. No longer are you limited by the size of your microSD card when playing the switch from the comfort of your couch, but you can now enjoy TERABYTES of content by using external harddisks and such! The filesystem on the drive needs to be either FAT32 or exFAT, and the directories that are being scanned for content are equal to the ones you’d use on the microSD card.

2.Updates to the cheat system
More accurate progress indication during cheat search
People were reporting “freezes” during cheat searches, often times these were just due to impatience and a suboptimal UI from our end. The progress bars are more honest and update more frequently now!

Cheat search for exact value requires no initial dump anymore
For ‘exact value’ searches a big initial dump file on your microSD is not needed, and since this is often the way people start a cheat search we decided to streamline the cheat finder process a bit. You are now prompted with a question whether you want to start an exact value search or arbitrary value search, in case of the former the process will be much faster.

Automatically apply/disable cheats upon toggle
The interface for “applying” the cheats was a bit counterintuitive, you now no longer have to press the plus (+) button in order to apply cheats. They are automatically applied/disabled once you toggle them. Disabling cheats now properly works as well, so there’s no need for having a dummy cheat any more to work around that limitation.

Ability to add cheats using the UI
Identifying memory locations for cheats using just the console is nice, but previously there was no way of adding an actual cheat-code for a location you found to the cheat code library. This has been addressed, and there is now an interface for doing this directly from our menu.

3.Show homebrew NSP icons in TX menu
Some homebrew NSP titles were not displaying their icons properly. This has been investigated and fixed.

4.Fix error 2345-0021 when in docked mode opening TX menu
People who play/cheat in docked mode will like this fix. The frequent crashes that happened when opening the TX menu in docked mode are now a thing of the past!

Switch SX OS v2.0.1 and SX OS v2.1 BETA Announcement

SXOS21TX Team announced *two* new versions of SX OS: One is the “stable” release which has been extensively stress-tested and the other is the optional “beta” version of SX OS which comes with new functionality that needs to go through a thorough acceptation phase before it will be rebranded as the current stable version.

Stability improvements
Introduction of optional beta updates available through OTA updater

— What’s new in SX OS v2.1 BETA?
SX OS v2.1 beta introduces our brand new cheat engine and cheat finder. Many people requested a way to cheat in games or aid in finding cheats for games, so it has been high up on the priority list for a while. We’re curious to hear your feedback about this initial version of our game cheat addition to SX OS.
As of now we don’t have a big library of game cheats available yet, but we hope the community will come up with some cool ones that they will share publicly. Finding cheats and making (reliable) cheat codes for Switch games can be a laborious task and is in certain aspects a bit more involved than finding cheats for, say, a classic gameboy game!
For that reason we have written a small reference guide [HERE] for the aspiring cheat hackers out there detailing the format of our cheat codes, caveats that need to be accounted for, and small tips to bring you up to speed.

— Closing words
Go update your SX OS to v2.0.1 now by downloading the latest version from TX website or using the online updater in SX OS itself. If you’re feeling adventurous, give the v2.1 beta a shot, which is also available to you through the online updater in SX OS.
