    this is a list of all the homebrew that currently works on 5.0.x
    RULES OF THE THREAD
    1. The switch soc damage has been confirmed a false rumor
    2. dont tell me or anyone "if you dont know what your doing then dont do it" ill happily help you if you dont
    3. your an adult, you make your own decisions
    4. dont ask if it works on a lower firmware cause i dont know
    5. If the app has to do with piracy I will not link to it (You can however Google it when it exists) but it will still be added to the list when it exists
    5a. In accordance with rule 5 i accept your right to have your own opinion on if piracy is wrong but just know that I myself am a pirate of games and do not care if your opinion is against me or with me

    heres the list, i only tested on 5.0.2 because i dont own a system with any lower of a firmware
    It has come to my attention some of these have been updates with the new commit for Libnx but have not been compiled for releases.

    If you wish to compile these all you have to do is clone the git for Libnx and then put them into your devkitpro with git clone https://github.com/switchbrew/libnx; cd libnx; make; make install and then run make in the clone of the homebrew that may or may not still work

    Homebrew apps that should be tested on 5.x.x:

    Switch Pong:

    OpenTyrian:
    https://github.com/felixrg/opentyrian

    mystery of solarus

    Eventual homebrew releases that may have 4.x.x and 5.x.x support:

    OrchestrinxNX (sounds like a pretty cool app)
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/orchestrinx-play-your-favorite-zelda-tunes-now-on-the-switch.504949/



    edited for readability
    Edited to say 5.0.x Cause I was apparently still on 5.0.1 but all my homebrew still works after I updated

    credit to the people who developed these homebrew applications, we all appreciate your work

    IF ANYONE WANTS TO HAVE ME ADD THINGS THAT WORK ON OTHER FIRMWARES ILL HAPPILY DO SO AS LONG AS SOMEONE TELLS ME IF IT WORKS OR NOT

    FTPD was working fine for me, just shows 0.0.0.0 as ip but otherwise works fine if you know your ip

    I tried 3 different versions of ftpd and only 2 worked.
    The one from switchbru and the original worked.
    The one on switchbrew didn't work.

    like the start of the thread says i only own a 5.0.2 switch, if you want the list you're either going to have to make it and post it here to be added or make it and make another thread (the latter is not reccomended but like the rules say your an adult and you make your own decisions)

    There's what I believe is either a homebrew or a payload file that dumps saves on 5.0.x but it only dumps 1 games saves at a time and you have to know the titleid before compiling....and you have to compile it

    So is there a difference between 5.0.1 and 5.0.2? I thought the same apps would work for either one.

    as far as editing youd have to hex edit it

    yeah a guy on the reswitched discord made it today

    idk, I'm only adding it for precautionary purposes

    id assume at this point you can Google switch title ids
