    Aren't xci byte for byte dumps of game cards? Or is the missing info stuff that can't be dumped because lotus doesn't allow the rest of the system to access it?

    Lotus is bypassed to load the XCI via hacks. There is not enough information in the XCI to boot it using OFW, hence why XCI's are literally only for SX mounting (with their hacks) or installing with a title installer. XCI's will never be used with OFW, so byte perfect never matters.

    Is it possible to dump enough information to boot them on ofw if we were to replicate the gc hardware and write it to the flash or would we need a lotus exploit to get the information that's missing in xci files? I guess what I'm trying to ask is is a xci a full disk image and we just can't get keys for the lotus handshake to verify the card or is there data in the card's flash that just isn't included in the xci format?

    OK. In this case 4nxci way is better than tinfoil. Both can not revert to perfect xci, but resigned can be run on FW without ACID patch.

    I missed exactly what your issue was. Awoo Installer distributes the Hekate and AMS patches in one package, meaning either one you use will work. However, Hekate users must enable the nosigcheck flag in their boot configuration before the patches work properly. These patches should also work on most all previous versions of HOS.

    No, that is not what I said. byte for byte perfect means it includes the firmware updates and other stuff you dont need and it a perfect binary match to the original XCI file. Note that this is not possible with 4nxci to nsp either. You can produce a 100% signed XCI with Tinfoil (but not 4nxci) but you cannot produce the exact XCI file.

    (It just checks for the latest version on Github so it's showing 1.2.2 as an update lol)

    I've been trying to install an NSP file dumped straight from my cartridge, output from NXDumptool, but Goldleaf just installs it in a corrupted state, and I'm getting this error from Awoo. Any obvious error here?

    Has the block comprssed nsz files been supported yet? (NSZ release 2.1.1)

    The solid compressed nsz files are installed and run fine.
    But with Awoo 1.2.2, solid compressed nsz files installed fine but can not be started. Tinfoil 7 also reported 'unknow frame descriptor' during installation for
    the same nsz file.

    So I'm wondering if this is supporting issue or nsz's own problem.

    Goldleaf didn't touch the distribution bit. Delete the bad file and try again with Awoo Installer.
    @SdCardContent means /Nintendo/Content/registered/...

    Currently we don't try to cleanup left behind garbage.

    Hi! We're looking for translators! If you happen to know English and another language, hit me up on my IRC and help us out! We'd love to include as many languages as possible for the 1.3.0 release!

    I don't think the format has changed in any way that would cause it to stop working in Awoo Installer. I would make sure you have a proper dump if multiple installers are giving you the same issue.

    I'll keep this in mind, however I don't plan on translating most of the debug and error messages, and pretty much all of the interface stuff from Tinfoil is gone now.

    It would be best if you joined my IRC so I can get one-on-one and help you if you have any questions. We're also adding some small features occasionally that will need more translated inclusions before 1.3.0.

    Judging from the documentation this is primarily a XCZ feature. I'll put it on my list of todos, but for now just compress your nsz files in the default format.

    Doesn't seem to be that, I've had those applied myself and also did it through Awoo and it says it's up to date.

    I'm trying to understand what you mean here. What's the bad file? The whole NSP, or a part (the distribution bit?) within it? I tried to explore the registered folder of the SD card but didn't see anything. I tried clearing out the Nintendo folder of all contents, dumping a fresh NSP that wasn't touched by Goldleaf, and still had the same error.

    I thought maybe it's because if you have a cart in your system while you try to install, it might see that as something already partially installed, and so I removed the cart and deleted the data in System Settings (like the error seems to say?), but this didn't make a difference either.

    Some thoughts about USB code:
    1. 0x1000000 buffer - bad idea. According to switchbrew.org due to some issues postBufferAsync on switch side silently hangs on such buffer size in some cases.
    2. No checks for alloc fail.
    3. Why to memalign alloc? usbCommsRead handles all that align issues.
    4. awoo_usbCommsInitializeEx do stuff only if hosversion >= 5, so all that Init1x is useless.
