Is it possible to access the Switch's file system via PegaSwitch command line or would a file browsing program have to be written first? I ask because the place where saves are stored on the Switch is documented but I don't know how to read from it or write to it. Anybody have any ideas?

I take it I asked a stupid question. Regardless that is no reason to be rude.

Good on you dude, agreed 100%

Take a look at the some of the example javascript files, you will have to get used to/understand return based programming, but the SetRtc example is a good start as it is documented pretty well.

I was looking at the dumpArchives.js Friday and tried creating a modified version of it in order to pull the applets, but unfortunately it isn't as simple as changing the title ID's :)

The Title ID's for applets are in the 1000's, which throws an error if you incorporate titles that are NOT 8XX based...

I also tried doing something like IDirectory.DirList(), but that isn't a valid command it seems... maybe I am calling it wrong, how do you use the methods in those files? Anybody have any ideas? I tried looking into other scripts but they don't have any good indications.

If I understod it correctly it should be possible to access many files using smhax.
I tried getting a handle for the service which manages the fs permissions(fsp-pr) and use it to give the browser applet full file system access, but after sending the command, one part of the system always seams be crashing.
I think it didn't work because of wrong params, but I'm not completely sure.

That's a good point, I haven't tried using any other service besides the fsp-srv, maybe I could try messing with the permissions for those system applets... I tried to list the directories but I don't think I have the correct command syntax, do you (or anyone else) know how to use the IFile/IFileSystem/IDirectory methods?

Especially the GetDir method...

The ReSwitched team that built pegaswitch have privately accessed the file system and can transfer saves from one console to another. This ability is not public yet, as it relies on more exploits beyond sm:h that they don't want Nintendo to be aware of yet.

A prefix of "I" before any object or class denotes that it's an interface, which means you have to create a class that defines its implementation yourself (or wait until an implementation is available)

Thanks for that, I didn't want to make any assumptions about the implementation, this makes a lot more sense now.
