SX OS v2.3 BETA Announcement

SX23 Team Xecuter announced brandnew SX OS v2.3 BETA, Let’s have a look at the changelog:

1.SD emuNAND support
Since the introduction of our emuNAND feature we got a lot of comments about our initial decision to make the emuNAND data live on the actual system NAND. After lots of hard work we are happy to say we now have a workable solution for storing your emuNAND partition data on your microSD card. This has the upside of not using up any space on your Switch. In order to use the new microSD emuNAND system you will *not* have to format your microSD card. Simply enter the TX boot menu by holding Volume-+ while powering on your switch. Head into the options menu and select emuNAND on the left. Users of our existing emuNAND solution will see an option to migrate their existing emuNAND data. The migration process also cleans up the old emuNAND from the system NAND. Painless! We’re interested in hearing your feedback about this exciting new functionality.

2.The ‘Emutendo’ folder
In addition to the new microSD emuNAND system we also introduce the ‘Emutendo’ folder on your microSD card. As you’ve probably noticed, the Switch saves various data to a ‘Nintendo’ folder on your microSD card. To completely decouple this data between your Original Firmware and your EmuNAND enabled firmware we have made EmuNAND enabled systems use this differently named folder. If you want keep using your old SD card data with your emuNAND, simply copy/rename the ‘Nintendo’ folder to ‘Emutendo’.

3.Added more directories to scan for content
By popular demand we have added yet another list of subdirectories that will be scanned on your microSD card (or USB harddisk) for XCI/NSP/homebrew. The directories that have been added are:
– /sxos/updates
– /sxos/dlc
– /switch/updates
– /switch/dlc

4.Homebrew menu takeover of any title by holding R
Homebrew is usually launched from either the TX menu or the Homebrew Launcher menu. Both of these applications run as an ‘applet’ on the Switch. Applets do not have access to all of the system’s memory, and thus any homebrew apps or games launched from here are affected by this as well. The only way to allow full use of the system’s memory was to build and install homebrew NSP files. But now we have added another way to give homebrew applications full memory access! You can now hold the (R) button while launching any regular title, and this will launch the Homebrew Launcher Menu. Any homebrew launched from here will run with the same capabilities as a regular Switch game/app. Enjoy!

5.Loading homebrew from USB
More good news for homebrew lovers. You can now copy homebrew NRO files to your USB harddisk as well, and launch them directly from our SX OS menu.

6.Stability improvements
Overall stability of many components has been improved. This includes LayeredFS and USB incompatibilities. We have also fixed a bug which would prevent people from launching more than 32 titles.

7.libusbfs update
Last but not least a small update for developers. We’ve squashed a small bug in libusbfs pertaining the stat() function. If you had issues with this, grab an updated copy of libusbfs from our website!

SX OS v2.2.1 BETA Announcement

SXOS221Following previous SX OS v2.2 beta’s release, TX released the newest SX OS v2.2.1, which adding USB HDD Write Support and much more, like TX releasing a homebrew “libusbfs” library. Lets have a look at the list of changes from TX team of SX OS v2.2.1 BETA :

Support for *big* USB drives
In our last announcement we bragged that you were able to enjoy TERABYTES of content, which was technically correct.. but in practice you were still limited to USB drives with a capacity up to 2TB. This is now a limitation of the past, as you are now able to use storage devices with a capacity of up to a PETABYTE!

Fix USB disk directory scanning
Due to a small bug in 2.2 beta the subdirectories on your USB disk weren’t being properly scanned for content. This has been fixed and you can now rely on the same subfolder structure as on your microSD card.

Fix USB ethernet and keyboard support
The introduction of our USB disk support apparently broke support for existing USB peripherals that were supported by Nintendo’s firmware. Fixed!

Add USB drive write support
We have enabled write support for USB drives. In practice for SX OS this means that NSP files can now actually be deleted after installation. But this also serves a greater purpose.. keep reading!

Eject gamecard on USB eject
When you disconnect a USB disk while in the main menu the (emulated) Game Card will actually be ejected now. A small detail, but a nice addition nonetheless.

Improved LayeredFS support
LayeredFS suffered from incompatibilities with certain games, this has been addressed and fixed. If you find any more problem titles, let us know!

Add support for temporarily disabling LayeredFS by pressing X while launching game/application
If you want to skip loading your LayeredFS patches you can now hold the X key while launching a game/application. The game/app will start normally without any patches applied.

Further improvements to overall system stability..
.. and other minor adjustments to enhance the user experience. You know the drill!

Meanwhile, TX reveals, they have some cool news for homebrew devs. We are releasing a little library called libusbfs` that allows your homebrew to interface with USB disks very easily. Please find the latest library code here directly! Let’s look forward to popular homebrew apps adapting support for USB storage.

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!

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!

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!
