SX GEAR is now shipping

SX GearWhat is SX Gear?
SX Gear is the perfect solution for SX OS owners who want an easy and safe way to boot up Team Xecuter firmware.
It can also be use to inject any other payload with a high quality tool kit.
SX Gear combines dongle and jig, strong, sturdy, with its unique super-capacitors. Made to last and keep your Switch safe.

Since Team Xecuter’ s last update for SX Gear on Aug 17, 2018. SX OS owners all waiting for the day SX Gear really releasing. SX GEAR is now shipping.

Who will need SX Gear?
1. Users who only ordered SX OS.
SX OS users who couldn’t wait for SX Pro to start shipping but were quickly missing the convenience, ease of use and safety of the SX Pro Dongle and jig. SX Gear is fully compatible with SX OS. You can purchase a license separately, or use an existing SX OS license that you have and use the regular SX OS boot.dat file. You now own a SX Pro, in red color.

2. Users who wants to use other (opensource) payloads.
Also, many Switch owners asked for an official Team Xecuter product that will allow them to use other (opensource) payloads. Team Xecuter provides the best quality product and users know it is best to stick to the brand they trust to make sure they have a device they won’t have to replace after 50 boots. Or worse, one that would damage their precious Switch.
SX Gear is Team Xecuter’s solution for the opensource community. To use it with your favorite payload, simply download the SX Gear boot.dat file. Place this boot.dat file in the root of your microSD card together with the payload.bin file of your choice and the payload will run as soon as you power on your switch!

SX Gear users will need to copy the boot.dat file to their microSD card. Find the file here directly.
Any third party payload can then be put on the microSD card as payload.bin to use it!

Meanwhile, TX mentioned the upcoming SX OS v2.0. We will update in blog as well once released.

SX OS v1.8 releasing had an issue for the early adopters of firmware 6.0 where the web applet would crash. This has now been resolved!

TX also improved the stability and speed of the FTP functionality for built-in FTP server.

Good news! This will be the last time that procedure is needed!

With SX OS v1.9, TX announced the brand new “Update SX OS” functionality. This can be invoked from the menu by selecting “Update SX OS” in the “OPTIONS” tab.

SX OS v1.6 Announcement- Stealth Mode, support for 32GB XCI files

SX1.6Within two weeks after last SX OS version update, TX announced the new version 1.6 of SX OS on Aug. 26, 2018. This update addresses two important things pertaining compatibility and safety.
Lets have a look at what’s new!

Add support for 32GB XCI files (Dragon Quest Heroes 1 and 2)
It came to our attention that 32GB XCI files were not working with SX OS. Since game compatibility is high up there on the priority list of Team Xecuter, we investigated this issue and are happy to report this has been resolved. You can now enjoy these content-packed bigger games like Dragon Quest Heroes!

Introducing Stealth Mode
Stealth Mode is our solution to prevent console bans. In SX OS v1.6 and onwards this feature will be enabled by default.
*You can still disable Stealth Mode from the TX menu if you really wish to do so, however we do not recommend this (unless your Switch is already banned).
*With Stealth Mode enabled your Switch system is not able to send any Switch personal information to Nintendo’s servers while still allowing basic Internet functionality (for eg homebrew). Things like local WiFi play is also still possible!
*Keep in mind Stealth Mode is only active when you are running SX OS! If you occasionally boot back into original Switch firmware you may expose yourself to a ban risk if you have modified your Switch system by installing NSP titles for example, so we do not recommend this!
*Playing XCI titles in SX OS with Stealth Mode enabled should NOT get you banned when booting/using your original Switch firmware online. This is why we personally prefer our Game Cartridge emulation solution, and so should you!

SX TOOLS- The easy way to install SX OS with an Android Phone

Team Xecuter announced a free app for Android owners to easy launch their SX OS on Aug 20, 2018.

Quick instructions:
Install the apk to an OTG capable android phone.
Connect the Switch to the phone.
On the first use, the app will ask for permission to “use USB device” when the Switch is connected. Check the “Use by default…” and press “OK”
SX OS will boot now.

That’s it. You don’t even need to open the app to use it. Just install it and connect the Switch. Even when the phone is locked, it will work.

SX OS v1.5 Announcement

sx os v1.5

TX announced SX OS v1.5, which 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
