    Many file explorers have built in FTP functionality. To push XDA a bit more, MiXplorer is a commonly used file manager with FTP support


    then i just remembered, that Mixplorer isn't on the google store i think

    but to the original statement, most file managers will have ftp

    Awesome. Will try after I get RetroArch Cores (not on the Switch Build) done.

    By the way - MOGA Controller in XInput Mode works.
    Street Fighter IV - Champion Edition [Works perfectly, and it does not even heat up the Device :D ]

    I tried PUBG Mobile but I'm disappointed by the performance. Runs a *lot* worse than even my little iPhone SE. (this is with the 'quick' performance profile).

    The experience overall using Android on Switch is laggy / not smooth, which surprises me given the low resolution and seemingly solid SoC. I'm not sure if this is the Switch being slow, running off an SD card, the port being unoptimized, or just Android being laggy in general.

    This is really fun. I managed to get Moonlight running on it and tested Monster Hunter: World. Works perfectly. If there's any other games you want me to test, let me know!

    Props to @GBADWB and @phillyrider807 for the help figuring out how to Connect to the Device via FTP. Just wish there was a faster method, but this should do for now. :(

    Unfortunately, I am using EZ File Explorer, and using WinSCP. Keeps Disconnecting :(

    I get the feeling that the target res is always 1080 and its being downscaled for handheld use.

    Has anybody been able to get dolphin to work? It installs but after the first boot up it crashes on every other boot up for me.

    In other news I tried out drastic and it works perfectly.

    What I mean is the Switch is pushing few pixels relative to 'hidpi' modern tablets and smartphones, so it should have a performance advantage.

    No option to change HDMI resolution. 4K TV display too sluggish.

    Go to settings, bluetooth. Pull the joycons out of the rails, use the sync button between the bumpers. The joycon lights will continue to move up and down even when its paired, look at the bluetooth settings for when the pairing is complete. Once synced they will remain so even if you slide them back into the rails, they always communicate wirelessly.

    Will there be a 256GB image by any chance? Some of us are starting to grow weary of the limitations of only having 128GB of storage...

    Hey, can you check if Steam Link works too? I have AMD GPU and can't use Moonlight

    Transfering pretty good so far. Occasionally will have a Disconnect, but at least it is going faster than typical FTP.
