Last night i was going to update my cfw when i reached around the back of my pc to pull out the USB Micro adapter and snapped my Micro SD card in half.

yes, I'm a TIT.

so ive ordered a brand new one and wanted to ask what files i would need on the sd card in order to launch CFW or my emunand.

I do have a backup of my 8.0.1 emunand on my pc and i use SXOS dongle and jig to get into my CFW

But im unsure what i need to have set on the SD card.

Cheers guys.

copy your license.dat and sx os 2.8 boot.dat to your microsd then boot with jig and dongle, hold vol+ , push power and continue to hold vol+ until the sx boot menu appears then you can create a new emunand

you should have backed up your license.dat to a pc or flashdrive?

I didnt ... cause i never hacked this console i only bought it 2 weeks ago already modded ...and was shown how to use the jig and told to backup my emunand.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

would restoring my backup be of any use?

you still need the license.dat to use emunand or play games on sx os
follow the SX PRO QUICKSTART GUIDE at the TX homepage on bow to make a license.dat

But if im using the SX OS PRo it says i dont need to make my own ?
  • SX Pro: Comes with the Dongle to inject the payload, RCM jig to get the switch in RCM mode, and a license for SX OS already loaded into the Dongle.

a license code is in the dongle, you need it to make a license.dat

kinda screwed if you didn't backup the sxos licence
Not screwed at all. If you don't have the license.dat file when you boot with the SX Pro it will generate a license-request.dat file which take off your SD card and upload to https://sx.xecuter.com/sxos-license.html to regenerate your license.dat file. So just put that and boot.dat on the SD card and everything will work again.
