SX OS v1.5 Announcement

sx os v1.5

TX did a small update with some convenient new functionality for SX OS on Aug. 14th, for more details as below:
Added mass NSP install (and optional delete) functionality
Users who want to install a lot of NSP titles at once can now easily do so by pressing [Y] in the installer tab. Upon finish the NSP installer will also ask you if you want to delete the NSP source files from your microSD card, freeing up space and keeping every neat and tidy!

FTP server support
You can now enable a FTP server from the options tab in our menu that will keep running even once the menu is closed. This FTP server gives direct access to your microSD card, so you no longer have to eject the card to store/retrieve files.

More content directories
Some people complained that they didn’t like all the XCI/NSP/NRO files in the root of their SD card. We have to agree that becomes a bit messy, so the menu will now scan the following directories as well looking for game content:
/sxos/games
/sxos/xci
/sxos/nsp
/sxos
/switch/games
/switch/xci
/switch/nsp
/switch

Team Xecuter Switch SX OS v1.4 Released

txos14

After several days without any news from Team Xecuter, they came back tooking an update for SX OS with some exciting new functionality and outstanding bug fixes on July 24, 2018. For SX OS v1.4 download, please find here directly .

For new version details, please see as below:
Integrated NSP installer
With our last update we introduced the possibility of installing eShop NSP titles. However, this relied on using external tools and wasn’t very user friendly. In this release we bring our own integrated NSP installer as part of our menu system. This is the neatest and easiest way of installing NSP titles, enjoy!

Integrated homebrew launcher
Launching homebrew used to be done by launching NX HBMenu by holding R when entering the album. While we kept this possibility (mostly for developers), you can now also launch your favorite homebrew directly from our own menu!

IR / motion plus issue fixed
A few games (like 1-2-Switch and Resident Evil) were suffering from freezes when enabling the joycon IR camera or motion controls.

Allow unsigned NCA
People asked us if we could get rid of the NCA integrity checks, so we did! Custom NCA files, modified NCA files and repackaged NCA files should all work fine now.

Display SX OS version in menu
To better distinguish the different versions of SX OS we introduced a small version number display in our menu.

LayeredFS fixes for 4.1.0
There were certain issues with ‘LayeredFS’ for people on firmware 4.1.0. If you use ‘LayeredFS’ on that specific firmware there’s good news for you: these issues have been identified and fixed!

Quick Unboxing Video of Team Xecuter SX PRO Modchip Device

SXUNBOXIt’s so much closer to SX PRO launch date, Team-Xecuter showed the last announcement before  the reviewers take over!

In this announcement, Team Xecuter showed final product & packaging pictures, which is from one of the 100 review samples that will be shipped this week. Also, TX stated, the packaging dimension and weight with product and cable: Weight: 30g. Dimensions: 10*7*1.4cm
Quick Unboxing Video of our SX PRO Device, please find here.

Team Xecuter also confirmed that SX OS official launch date is June 15th, which is also the date they ship units to vendors.
As the distributor, Digimartz.com will arrange the shipment once get the device from Team-Xecuter. So, customer’s understanding for the shipping time will be much appreciated.

As usual, a few Q&A that came back regularly:
Q: Is SX affected by the dreaded “battery desync” problem?
A: As far as we are aware this battery desync problem currently only occurs when running Linux on your Switch.
While extensively testing SX OS, including booting SX OS with AutoRCM we have not ran into a single battery desync issue ourselves.
SX OS itself isn’t based on Linux. We *do* allow people to run Linux (and other payloads) through our “external payload” functionality. This is at your own risk.
If we had to give the community a hint as to where to start looking into this “battery desync” problem we’d suggest looking into how the Fuel Gauge IC (MAX17050, I2C1 addr 36) is being used by Nintendo’s OS and by Linux.

Q: If I boot in OFW mode and play my original purchased game online, am I safe?
A: Yes, you are safe to play original games online in OFW mode.

Q: Does SX OS plays the original games in CFW mode?
A: Yes, it does.

Q: If I download eShop games to an SD card, can I also run SX OS on that card?
Or do I need separate cards for Nintendo eShop games and SX OS games?
A: You can use the same SD card.
Next week, the first reviews will be online, we are sure they will be excellent as we expect!sx pic

Team-Xecuter Demos showing SX PRO and OS working fully on v5.1.0 Switch

SX510In 2nd, June, 2018, Team Xecuter updated the Team-Xecuter Demos in one of the last Team Xecuter announcement before their reviewers take over as stated!

As promised in last update, Team Xecuter shows a new video demo of their latest SX OS running games and homebrew under 5.1.0(SX PRO and OS works fully on v5.1.0 Switch) . This is pretty close to what you will have in the V1.0 of SX OS. Also, TX is still working…

As latest tested by TX, they has 10 (instead of original 5) successive boots without the opportunity to auto recharge. Standby time remains the same (approximately 1 week) and battery drainage has been dropped from 25mA to 13mA while console is awake and dongle plugged in.

Simply F&Q shows as below:
Q: Can I play my Switch running SX OS while being docked?
A: Absolutely. You just need to have it undocked when you power up your Switch to load SX OS. Once done, dock it and play for as long as you don’t completely power it off again.

Q: I know I’m asking too much and it’s early, (sorry) would it be possible to get Bluetooth audio (or even Bluetooth controller) support within the CFW.
I know a lot of people would dig that on other forums (including a clean internet browser that has YouTube unblocked) if this is possible?
A: If it is doable, we will try. Please read text below about such requests, you are fully entitled to request anything, we will do our best in order of user’s most wanted features.

TX welcomes questions/ suggestions from their SX fans, always showing the most common FAQ timely as they did recently.

First Real SX Pro Pictures in Production Line Seeing and Usual Q&A Sharing from Team Xecuter

SX-LINEXecuter SX line launch date is getting closer and closer to us, here to satisfied SX fans’ curiosity, Team Xecuter showed the SX Pro Pictures in Production Line as picture.
More pictures or video will be shared from they later.
SX pro pic
Here is another usual Q&A for SX Pro and SX OS to most popular questions.
Q: Is SX OS compatible with firmware 5.1.0
A: Of course. And as we stated before, it will be compatible with the next updates as well. We are offering a future proof solution.

Q: Will the SX OS for people who bought it ‘stand alone’ be delivered before the SX OS for people who bought SX Pro?
A: Not necessarily. SX Pro will be shipped in the days to come to distributors. SX OS will be unlocked a bit after the reviewers get their units (all reviewers receive SX Pro).
So depending on the speed of delivery to your distributor and then to you, SX Pro could come before SX OS stand alone. It probably will be very close.

Q: Why is there – and + symbols engraved in the SX Pro dongle?
Since USB-C devices can be plugged in either way, people are worried if dongle plugged in upside down, the + on left and – on right, and SX label facing down, that the Switch will blew up or get bricked, etc.
A: They are here just for cosmetic reasons. The – symbol is also the LED window.

Q: Yikes, those are two huge caps in render picture? Is that going to taser my Switch, damage my system, or zap me!
A: Super Cap’s actually (super-capacitor), 0.35F 2.7V, given the transport issues with Lithium based batteries SuperCap’s are fast becoming the go to temporary power source.
No zapping ( very low voltage ) and we limit the charge current to ~400mA peak for either USB port.

Q: Huh, two caps, how do they get ‘charged’? Do I have now and then plug my dongle into micro-USB cable to charge it, what happens when it runs out of power? — Why not battery instead? — Does it instead drain my Switch battery, what happens if I leave it plugged in.
A: The SuperCap’s are charged from either usb port ( USB-C or Micro USB ). The caps offer approximately 1 week standby time with enough energy left for one boot, or at least 5 successive boots without the opportunity to auto-charge. Charge to 80% is achieved (automatically) within 1-2 seconds of entry into the Nintendo start menu. We are working reducing that considerably … (see above for why not battery). Because we are powered by s-cap’s we have a very power conscious design.
Leaving the dongle in the console for more than a minute is pointless but will do no harm in any way to the dongle and drain very little battery ( currently we draw ~25mA but will work on reducing that considerably after ~1-2 minutes charge mode).

Q: Can I charge my Switch via dongle?
Using just micro-usb cable, removing the need of needing a proper usb-c cable.
A: Sadly no, our intent for the micro USB port was for charging the dongle and firmware updates, but might be something we will consider for future hardware revisions, thanks.

Q: There been reports of cables, and docks without that bricked the battery charging circuit, are we at risk with SX Pro solution?
A: No, simply because we do not support charging. The dongle uses both USB ports only for receiving charge.

Q: Is TX coming up with solution for those that leave their Switch always ‘docked’?
Its nice, that is portable, but some users never go ‘portable’, they are DOCK only fans, what about them?
A: If the demand is there, it is something we can develop.
