Before Nintendo releasing the much anticipated 6.0 firmware officially, TX did another SX OSupdate with some useful and exciting fixes and changes: Improves bulitin FTP server; Complete “V6.0 FW” support, Adds “Updates SX OS” feature. For more details, please read as below:
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.
One request TX has been getting a lot since the start of our continuous stream of SX OS updates is a method for updating SX OS from within SX OS itself; saving you the hassle of having to swap your microSD out and into the switch all the time whenever we bring something new to the table. 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. This will perform an OTA (Over-The-Air) update using the WiFi connection configured on your switch. If any new updates are found you will be prompted to install them. Enjoy!

Within 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!
