    Well, this makes me think that I misread about this feature, not paying attention to the part that this support is only for XCI files. Oh well, all that I can do now is wait for a similar feature to be officially implemented by Nintendo in a future update.

    Bullshit. They don't support piracy but they are not not allowing USB drives. There are legitimate use cases hence why that pull request on the Atmosphere repo exists. The only reason it's not working is because there is no stable implementation yet.

    Nope, which is why SX OS is still the king of cfw. There's nothing better than running xcis off of a 2tb hdd instead of clogging up my sd card.

    @Draxzelex is just mad that I called him out because he tries to bully people into posting every Switch related thread in the thread for n00bs, so he tried to bully me here. That's all that was about him trying to bully people. While on one hand he may help some people with switch related problems that doesn't make him a good person.

    Regardless I'm right that only SX OS can play games from usb hard drive, period.

    If pointing out blatant lies is bullying, then I guess that makes me the biggest bully. I don't get what your issue is but spreading misinformation helps no one. Multiple people outside of me have already pointed out what you said was incorrect and even OP agrees with me. Restoring to victim blaming isn't going to earn you any brownie points. There is nothing bad about admitting that you were wrong :)

    Playing movies from external hdd should be perfectly fine, no piracy related.
