I have a Switch on 2.3, but I'm having a difficult time finding a Tinfoil that works with it. I have an old build, but it fails to install most NSP's and the Network install hasn't been implemented yet.

Recent tinfoil commits (within the past 16 days) implemented network install.
https://github.com/Adubbz/Tinfoil/commits/master

You can find usage instructions on the github page.
Network Install Instructions
  1. Download and install Python 3.6.6 from https://www.python.org/downloads/
  2. Download remote_install_pc.py from https://github.com/Adubbz/Tinfoil/blob/master/tools/remote_install_pc.py by right clicking on Raw and clicking "Save link as..."
  3. Open the Network Install menu in Tinfoil
  4. Run remote_install_pc.py on your PC on the same network as your Switch with python remote_install_pc.py <switch ip> <nsp directory>, or alternatively with no arguments for interactive mode.
  5. ???
  6. Profit

You can also find the nightly builds (updated with each commit) here:

I asked Adubbz about this and from his personal experience, he can only confirm Tinfoil officially working on 5.1. He did not test it lower firmwares and has stated he will most likely never do so due to the exploit working on all firmwares (eventually Tinfoil will work on 6.0 but not right now). That means Tinfoil most likely does not work on 2.3 and may never will in the foreseeable future unless another developer wants to work on porting it to those firmwares.

On a lighter note, ChoiDujourNX is relatively easy to use and can bring you to 5.1, provided you find the firmware files, whilst retaining your fuse count for an RCM-less 2.3 firmware.

Yeah, I know about the nightly builds, but none has seemed to work.

I asked Adubbz about this and from his personal experience, he can only confirm Tinfoil officially working on 5.1. He did not test it lower firmwares and has stated he will most likely never do so due to the exploit working on all firmwares (eventually Tinfoil will work on 6.0 but not right now).

I was hoping that someone had tried a version that works on 2.3, and could share the version :)

I'm on 2.0.0 and tinfoil-becbc97.zip is one of the very few builds that works, anything newer than that does not work.

the one in RajNXv069.zip also works.

That version is impossible to find on google :/ have you had any luck installing games which requires a higher version with that? Also if you don't mind me asking, why are you staying on 2.0? I have been thinking about upgrading for a while now.

I`m just wondering why in the world you are on 2.3? Do a non fuse-burning upgrade with ChoiDuJour

Nobody should be on that earlier firmware, as we can now downgrade and ingore the cart slot FW upgrade.

You can find RajNXv069 here. Just search for "0.6.9 (04.08.2018) RajNXv069.zip - Initial release". The "tinfoild.nfo" is only thing you need from that zip.

Yes, Pokken (even though this game requires 3.0) works. (I use 4nxci v1.10 to convert xci to nsp)

I'm staying on 2.0 because a lot of people said so a while ago, though It's really a pain having a 2.0 switch because most of the stuff that work for others does not work for me, going forward, I might give ChoiDujourNX a try.

SdFiles v8.0.1 + 4nxci v1.10 + tinfoil becbc97 (or the one in RajNXv069) is the only combination that works on my 2.0.0 switch.
