SX252

TX just back with a small bug fix release for SX OS. Importantly, they announced, SX OS v2.5.2 is an officially supported stable release! This means that both the stable and beta channels are fully in sync now; feature- and functionality-wise.

This release addresses two small bugs:

Fixed issue with installing split XCI / NSP
Some split content file sizes were causing issues for some people, this is no longer the case!

Fixed issue with deleting files after XCI / NSP installation
Deleting the original XCI/NSP files after installation was introducing some crashes and side effects for certain users. We investigated this issue and are happy to let you know its now a thing of the past!

SX OS v2.5.1 Beta Announcement

SX OS 2.5.1Just entered new year 2019, TX announced SX OS v2.5.1 Beta with normal function fixing and improving. Lets waste no time and see what’s new in 2.5.1:

LayeredFS compatibility fixes
It appears we introduced a regression in “LayeredFS” support in 2.5.0. This affected certain game mods like fan translations. This has been tracked down and fixed!

Improved Internet Local Wireless Play
Numerous stability fixes and improvements have been made to the Internet Local Wireless Play functionality.

Fixed false positive ‘corrupted’ message for installer
The Switch software management menu has an option for verifying the integrity of installed titles. When using this functionality with titles that have been installed through our NSP installer you would always get a message saying the title data is corrupt. This was mostly a false positive as the installed titles worked fine.. but we’ve hunted down the root cause of this and fixed this cosmetic shortcoming for all new installs!

Add support for installing XCI
You read it right, as of now you can also *install* titles that come in XCI format, just as you would be able to do for any content that comes in NSP format. This is useful for people who would like to access all of their games from the home menu screen instead of going through our menu. Of course you can still play XCI titles without installing as well!

SX OS v2.4 Beta Announcement- Fully support for firmware 6.2.0

SX24After about two weeks’ efforts, Team Xecuter released SX OS v2.4 Beta which could fully support switch firmware 6.2.0 finally! Nintendo switch owners could feel free to update to switch firmware 6.2.0.

Now, lets have a look at what v2.4 brings to the table:

Support for firmware 6.2.0
Nintendo threw us a small curve-ball while we were in the middle of reworking some other parts of SX OS. That being said, SX OS is now fully compatible with the latest official firmware 6.2.0.

EmuNAND functionality reworked
Our initial release of EmuNAND used a storage mechanism that wasn’t what a lot of people were looking for. In our last release we decided to switch to using the microSD for EmuNAND storage, which in turn made some users that *did* like the old method of storing EmuNAND on the system NAND unhappy. We have reintroduced the support for EmuNAND-on-system-NAND as well as introduced a third storage method for your EmuNAND partition. You can now also opt to use a separate partition (as opposed to files in the regular (ex)FAT filesystem) as a storage backend for your EmuNAND. With three flavors of EmuNAND storage supported now, all of you can rejoice!
To recap, you now have three way of settings up EmuNAND now:
*EmuNAND on system NAND: repurpose part of your Switch internal storage for EmuNAND
*EmuNAND on microSD as partition: repartitions your microSD card with a separate EmuNAND partition
*EmuNAND on microSD as files: EmuNAND is stored on microSD as files instead of repartitioning
WARNING: Setting up your EmuNAND as partition on your microSD card will format your microSD card. After setup nothing but the boot.dat and license.dat will remain.

Homebrew R button interfering with ingame L+R buttons fixed
In the last release we introduced a method of invoking the homebrew launcher for any title by holding down the [R] button during application/game startup, this gives homebrew additional capabilities that it wouldn’t normally have. However, this seems to have caused some interference with some games, this has been fixed.

Embedded Homebrew Menu
Previously, you had to copy a `hbmenu.nro` file to your microSD card in order to use the homebrew launcher. This has been fully integrated into the SX OS boot.dat file now. Effectively this means all you need for setup is to copy our boot.dat file, simple!

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!
