    Same method as XCI games via LayeredFS

    You can find the donor id and patch the npdm with that id

    Example:
    if you want to run Sonic Forces NSP using Pinball FX3 (0100DB7003828000) as Donor Title, then do the following;
    1. go to http://carlus.altervista.org/nx/title_id_patcher.htm
    2. copy paste Pinball FX3 title id there
    3. drag and drop your Sonic Forces main.npdm file from /exefs/ folder
    4. Download Patched file becomes available, save and overwrite in your /exefs/ folder
    5. Go to SD Card and create Pinball FX3 donor title folder
    6. //atmosphere/titles/0100DB7003828000/
    7. Copy your sonic forces romfs / exefs files/folder into the above folder
    8. Run Older LayeredFS firmware
    9. Run Pinball FX3
    it should load Sonic Forces

    if it fails to load "An error occured ..." then try another donor (by repeating steps above

    haven't seen that before, what step is that?

    i just did NSP > NCA > RomFS.bin and had no issues, see below;

    Saving main to exefs\main...
    Saving main.npdm to exefs\main.npdm...
    Saving rtld to exefs\rtld...
    Saving sdk to exefs\sdk...
    Saving subsdk0 to exefs\subsdk0...
    Saving subsdk1 to exefs\subsdk1...
    Saving subsdk2 to exefs\subsdk2...
    Saving subsdk3 to exefs\subsdk3...
    Saving subsdk4 to exefs\subsdk4...

    Saving Section 1 to romfs.bin...
    Size: 000036406c18


    Done!​

    How do you manage the save files? Dont they have now all the same ID from the donor app? Can you convert them later and use them with sx os/cfw or do you need to start s new game?

    Use the homebrew Checkpoint, name the backup after the game you are currently running over the donor.
    Stick your sd card in your computer, go to switch-Checkpoint-DonorIDDonorName and you'll see all the backed up save files for the games you ran over it.

    You can later use them again when running the game (now installed) and recover it with Checkpoint.

    Okay so I figured out how to use everything and how to pull all the titles from CDN. thank you hotshots. my final hurdle is figuring out how to install the update files and the downloadable content files. any guidance please?

    You're welcome... updates and dlcs are a hit and miss

    For Update, follow this thread;
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/manually-updating-romfs-bin-for-backups.509834/

    basically you need to run this command;
    hactool.exe -k keys.txt --titlekey=TypeKeyHere --basenca="OriginalGame.nca" --section1="romfs.bin" --exefsdir="exefs" "UpdateFile.nca"

    this will take the base "originaGame.nca" and merge it with "UpdateFile.nca" and result in 'romsfs.bin"

    They noth work normally, but doing folder is super slower to transfer to the SD card due thousands of little files!
