  1. These are all the questions that team xecuter answered in various posts on their website So I copied and paste them into one topic May try to make it more organised / neater later Q: How do I re-enter TX boot menu A: Press and hold vol+ and keep holding until you see the TX splash screen Q: How do I access my albums while in SX-OS CFW mode ? A: Hold down L while opening album Q: How do I access HomeBrew ? A: Hold down R while opening album Q: How do I load my backup roms ? A: Simply enter album an select you rom file, all rom files should be placed in the root directory of the console micro SD Q: HomeBrew menu loads but none of my apps are showing, what is wrong ? A: Please try re-format the micro-SD card using a windows machine, we have encountered this issue when using OS-X ex-fat formatted cards. 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. 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. 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. Q: Will Switch data such as savegames and updates be shared between the OFW and SX OS? Or are both systems separated? A: Yes, SX OS and the original Switch OS share savegames and update data. Q: Does SX OS support trimmed XCI files or do they need to remain unaltered? A: Yes, an app like [Hidden Content] is supported. Q: Is it possible to play games from a External Harddrive? Does SX allow us to use an external disk using the docking station or USB-C port? A: This is a possibility in the future, we've added it to our to do list. (thanks to all users for making it already a few pages long Q: Can we expect cheat codes some day? A: Cheats has always been a priority for our us. And we've already started looking into it. It takes a while to make a decent and usable cheat system, your patience will be rewarded! Q: There has been a wave of bans happening lately. Does that confirm we won't be able to play online with SX OS? A: There have indeed been a number of isolated ban incidents happening lately among some homebrew developers. The exact cause of these bans is not known as of yet. We are not aware of any bans due to SX OS usage. But be cautious and use online functionality at your own risk! Q: Can SX products run homebrew software as well? A: The initial release of SX OS will have support for running homebrew software for all firmware versions. In the initial release, launching the homebrew menu can be done by starting the photoviewer application while holding the R button on the Joy-Con. A file called "hbmenu.nro" needs to be on the root of the microSD card and a folder "switch" needs to contain all the homebrew applications. We will naturally continue to improve homebrew support and easy of use in future update. Q: When you put your Switch into Sleep mode, do I need to insert dongle again upon waking up? A: No, you don't. Just resume playing where you left it Q: Is it possible to install Game Updates (and does it requires to be on the latest firmware)? A: Yes, you can install game and system updates. The game updates can be applied following Nintendo's usual rules, which sometimes requires you to be on the latest or a higher firmware than your console's current firmware. Q: If a game runs natively on an OFW x.yy and above, can SX OS run the game even if the console has a lower firmware? A: Currently no. We have added that request to our list of features to look into. Q: Does SX OS supports online gaming? A: SX OS supports playing online. However, we can't guarantee Nintendo is not able to detect you are using SX OS. So playing online is at your own risk. Q: Can I buy one SX Pro and one SX OS license separately, and use the dongle and tool with two switches? A: Yes, you can buy additional SX OS Licenses and use one dongle and tool for all your Switch consoles. Q: Which file format does SX OS support? What about split files? A: We support both FAT32 and exFAT. SX OS will also try to look for split files in the form of "filename.xc0" "filename.xc1" "filename.xc2" and so on to support ROMs larger than 4GB on FAT32. Q: Does SX OS support Emunand? A: Currently it doesn't. This is a feature we can add in the future, but it is low in the priority list because of the small interest to the general public. But because Xecuter SX is also used by advanced users, we will add Emunand support at some point. Q: Can I backup my games with SX OS and create my own game ROMs? A: Currently there's no easy way to backup games with SX OS. We will add support for this in an update. Q: Will you allow the use of different payloads? A: We will allow it. Custom payload can be put on the microsd card. Details will follow. Q: How much space is used up on microSD for SX OS? A: Only 16MB. To clarify, our OS will not alter in any way your microSD game & homebrew capacity. Q: Can I update my Nintendo Switch to the latest firmware? A: Yes, you can. We are compatible with all firmwares and all regions! Q: How are game ROMs launched? What format do they need to be in? A: Games ROMs available right now from release groups are compatible as-is. Copy the XCI files to the root of your Nintendo Switch microSD card so SX OS will be able to find them. Q: How does the tool (jig) and dongle operate? Are they needed everytime you turn on the console? A: If you don't want to make any (software) modifications to your Switch Console, both the Tool (jig) and dongle are needed every boot. SX OS has an optional "AutoRCM" feature that can be installed to your Switch Console such that the jig tool is not needed anymore on boot. Q: How does the AutoRCM feature work? A: The AutoRCM feature makes a tiny modification to your system's on-board storage via software, and from there on you will ONLY need the dongle (and won't have to press the volume key) when booting your console. Please note: With the AutoRCM feature installed, your Switch will only boot up with the SX Pro Dongle inserted or by any other USB-C launching method currently available. Once booted, you can always uninstall AutoRCM through SX OS. Q: Is the license for life and updates included? A: Yes, it is! All updates are free and for the lifetime of your console. Q: Is SX OS tied to my console/dongle? A: Yes. In case of SX Pro the license is tied to your dongle and console. In case of SX Lite the license is tied to your license code and console. Q: Can we play eshop games? A: The current version of SX OS only allows to play cartridge based games. But we're working hard to bring game titles that originate from different distribution media to SX OS as well! It is on our list of features to add in upcoming updates. Q: How will SX OS work? A: The SX OS boot file and licenses can soon be retrieved from our easy to use website that will launch shortly. Simply follow instructions and you will be set up in a few minutes. Q: What do I need if I only buy SX OS? A: We strongly recommend buying SX Pro for the ease of use and safely streamlined procedure. That being said, SX OS standalone can be launched from Windows using TegraRcmGUI (TegraRcmSmash) or from NXLoader on android (with a USB-otg adapter). We offer support & warranty on your devices, please note any issues you face by errors/misuse of other methods will not be covered by our warranty. Q: Will SX Pro work with Switch Linux? A: We will release a method of (chain)loading Linux using your SX Pro dongle soon. Q: Do we need to use the L/R buttons on the Joy-Con to switch game ROMs? A: We are working on a more user-friendly menu that can be launched from the home menu. We already have a working menu prototype that is fully functional but we are still improving it for our audiences. Q: Can SX products run homebrew software as well? A: The initial release of SX OS will not have support yet for running homebrew software for all firmware versions. Currently only the standard method for installing homebrew is supported, which means limited to the specific firmware version 3.0.0. We are in the final stages on adding support for running homebrew software regardless of firmware version and we expect to have this included with one of the first SX OS updates.
  2. Source: team-xecuter The day has come! TX are delighted to announce the release of their SX OS, which is now available! They are available from resellers worldwide. A list of trusted distributors can be found: [hide][Hidden Content]] SX OS is a custom firmware that can be used with the SX Pro tool kit (strongly recommended for ease of use and safety) or for advanced users as a stand alone OS. Once you download SX OS from our website, please follow the basic tutorial also available on the same page to install it on your Nintendo Switch. A complete tutorial and advanced manual will be available in the days to come. If you did not purchase a SX Pro or a SX OS license, Team Xecuter still provides FREE homebrew support and loading from a non activated SX OS install. This is a small gift to all 'sceners' who are only interested in homebrew. After all, Team Xecuter also comes from the homebrew scene and after all these years, we are still glad to contribute now and then to this scene who brought us where we are now. To unlock ROMs loading and more advanced functions, you need to purchase a SX Pro – our top selling product – or SX OS license. They are available from resellers worldwide. If you did purchase a SX Pro, then your license is included in your dongle. Simply follow the instructions from our quick tutorial. If you purchased a SX OS license, then once your vendor email it to you, please use it and follow instructions from our quick guide to activate it. OK, we know you are eager to test it out, so we will stop here. SX Pro and SX OS are a year in the making. It required massive team work from all of Team-Xecuter members to reach this V1.0 we believe will be your best purchase on Nintendo Switch. As usual here is a few Q&A for the early SX OS users that have already downloaded our SX OS: Q: How do I re-enter TX boot menu A: Press and hold vol+ and keep holding until you see the TX splash screen Q: How do I access my albums while in SX-OS CFW mode ? A: Hold down L while opening album Q: How do I access HomeBrew ? A: Hold down R while opening album Q: How do I load my backup roms ? A: Simply enter album an select you rom file, all rom files should be placed in the root directory of the console micro SD Q: HomeBrew menu loads but none of my apps are showing, what is wrong ? A: Please try re-format the micro-SD card using a windows machine, we have encountered this issue when using OS-X ex-fat formatted cards. But as usual, it is a work in progress. We received a lot of requests for new features to be added in future updates, and our skilled developers are already working on it even as V1.0 is only being rolled out. We really value your purchase, and we will do our best to bring you the best new updates and features in the years to come. Team Xecuter, Rocking the Switch in 2018 and beyond!

    Xecuter SX OS For The Nintendo Switch Review

    Before I begin my review I would like to thank Team Xecuter for giving me a review copy of their SX OS. Hence this review is specifically for the SX OS which is meant for people who already has a jig / tool and a usb cable etc.... If you don't have those then I recommend you getting the SX PRO instead. Enjoy my review! Honestly I had my doubts about the SX OS but after spending less than 10 minutes with this my doubts were gone. What took me by surprise was that how easy it was to set up and how quick and well it operates. To set it up it was just a matter of going onto the Team Xecuter SX official website then downloading the required files they even have an easy to follow manual which I followed to a T and had no issues what so ever. Once I had everything set up and clicked Inject Payload in a few seconds my switch was into the TX Boot Menu First time using the SX OS you will be greeted with a message telling you it has generated a request license file and that you will need to get a license if you want to play backups (but you can still use homebrew without having it which is a nice touch from the team.) Generating the license was a piece of cake took out my micro sd then into my laptop back onto their website on the top right "ACTIVATE SX OS" then browse select the request license it will then ask for your license key which i copied and pasted then in a few seconds the license automatically downloaded copied that onto the micro sd The next time I injected the payload it booted automatically into the switch home screen To access your backups (in .xci format) they have to be on the root of the micro sd card (I would rather have them in a folder like "games" for example but it only a minor thing and not even a real issue) then go to into album shortcut from the home screen without holding anything and you will see your backups. Again looks good, you see the row of games with their icon images. Alright so click on the icon of a game to load it up and it does that almost instantly then to start playing the game select it from the switch home menu screen and enjoy! All the games which I tried works great like Super Mario Odyssey, Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Arms & Xenoblade 2. Also trimmed games work by using Destiny1984’s XCI-Cutter which will save a good bit of space here and there which is important considering the prices of micro sd cards especially above 128gb. Team Xecuter so far has been providing fantastic support with regular updates and as of v1.2 cart2 games now work which includes games like mario tennis aces! The unknown is to see how Nintendo will respond there are some people saying they have gotten bans, personally I never go online with any of my consoles that I have modded I rather be safe than sorry. If I do ever go online I would only do so without going into the SX OS and just use my legally bought games. Some things I have not tried yet like homebrew (which you can access by going into the album via the home menu while holding the R button) although it has been mentioned that not all homebrew works yet in the SX OS but they are adding more support with each update. You can always use an external payload in the SX OS then use homebrew via that way instead. Also there is auto rcm which basically bricks your system andkeeps it in rcm so therefore it will eliminate the need of a jig / tool but you will still need something to load your payload with to turn on the system. Personally I have not tried it out yet as right now I do not really feel the need to but I may consider it in the future as 3d printed jigs bought off ebay are not necessarily the best. Overall I am very pleased SX OS, it looks clean performs well and everything feels like top quality which I think it needed to be. SX OS is a great option for those who already have a jig, a usb cable and dont mind using a phone or a laptop etc... to load the payload. I never felt like that I was held back or that it awkward for having the SX OS only and not the SX Pro. I hope that Team Xecuter will keep rocking the switch scene! They certainly have made a great start! Pros + Backups (Yeah! :D) + Professional looking design (everything from the boot menu to the backups menu to their website.) + Ease of use / Easy to set up + Works well (quick and had no crashes so far) + All games that I tried works even including cart 2 type games + Trimmed games work fine + Price (for the first of its kind and something that works well its cheaper than other mods for different systems) cons - no eshop games support at moment - all games (xci) must be on the root of the micro sd card (only a very minor issue though) - possible risk of getting banned ? (but its normal that there's usually or always a risk with a modded console) - must load the payload with an external device every time to use the sx os "For what it is at the important it's perfect but just needs a few more things" If your interested in playing backups then I definitely 100% recommend you getting SX OS if you already have a jig and usb cable but if you dont liked mentioned at the start then get the SX PRO instead Tutorial Video: Review Video:
  4. sorry just felt like getting my recent ebay experience off my mind so heres what i suppose is like a mini rant a fault with sending stuff on ebay standard non tracked and faults with their case system and customer support so i sold a photo card a few weeks which went to usa then one day out of the blue i had a case against me, i thought what the? i thought it was not too long ago and i never got any message from the buyer prior to the case so it was 3 weeks which to me it should've probably had arrived by now but opening a case is a bit early in my opinion because even though the post aim / delivery estimation date would have been within a week or two but its not guaranteed and officially i saw that it can take up to max 25 working days for it to be delivered but yet when i spoke to ebay customer support they completely ignored that and were actually quite rude to me and only cared about the delivery aim / time estimation what happens if there bad weather delays for customs delay or whatever else? also i contacted the royal mail (post in the uk) [Hidden Content] and there they pretty much said its still a bit early to consider it lost also what i would like to add maybe the buyer is for real that it hadnt arrived. not saying he is lying BUT i responded to case nicely and also sent a message to the user and never responded more than 2 days so I'm pretty much forced to refund him tomorrow because after tomorrow he can turn it into a claim and its already an automatic win where he did not have to wait the full time or delivery or respond to me in the case or messages that to me seems completely broken ebay support said its buyers choice and dont recommend buyers contacting sellers via messages and just open a request.... yeah the customer support contradicted their own official support pages..... also customer support was nowhere on the ball or paying attention said my response was less than 24 hours ago but that was my second message first one was over 48 hours and again was very rude and obnoxious again im not saying hes lying but his actions by 1 opening a case without ever sending me a message and 2 not responding to the case or messages then afterwards for me that stinks to high heavens strange because the user had good amount positive feedback and seems experienced on ebay enough not to do this unless if the buyer knows what hes doing thing is if i had sold the photocard outside of ebay via paypal i wouldve won the paypal dispute but ebay its a different matter i know its important to protect buyers but you need to protect sellers too i sent it non tracked because it was under £10 so it would be near double the price to send it to usa tracked and i had done before with no issues personally for me its not about the money its more the sense of being scammed because if the buyer had responded after opening the case and was nice i wouldve probably refunded and didnt think about it

    SX OS v1.5 Announcement

    SX OS v1.4 Announcement

    From their website: Good day, loyal users! While we chip away at many different features for SX OS and additions to our SX hardware family we took a break to prepare an update for SX OS with some exciting new functionality and outstanding bug fixes. Let's have a look at what's new and fixed in this release: 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! And that's that for this release. We have quite the backlog of feature requests and todo's on our plate, but trust we'll get there! [hide][Hidden Content]]

    Games not working in library

    Its probably due to imac people have issues with this and even with homebrew etc... But regardless of anything I would always double check the micro sd card with H2testw or anything else can you try formatting the micro sd with windows instead? then transfer games afterwards as usual from imac I would like to try and help more but i dont have a mac so its difficult to offer advise doubt the following below would work but try running this in a terminal (its what fixes homebrew for mac users it probably doesnt affect games but try it just incase) sudo chflags -R arch /Volumes/<SDCARD> I deleted the earlier comments here and I am going to ignore them let it pass but if it happens again warnings will be given
