    Is there a functioning FTP homebrew out for the Switch so that we can use a client such as SCP or FileZilla to copy files to and from the switch?

    Yes. TomGer's SD Files comes with it.

    If you are using SX OS and are on versoin 1.5 there is a built in FTP Server under options. If you click enable it will show you the IP address and the port to use.

    Don't need an ftp client if using windows
    Just open a windows explorer windows and type this in the address bar

    ftp://ipaddress:5000

    Where ipaddress is your switch IP address

    I've only bothered using FTP for transferring saves for save editing. Other than that it's just way faster and less sprisky to jus eject the SD card.

    You can either use the FTPD Homebrew or Kip file but I've found both crash the Switch when you attempt to copy files to or from the Switch. It's really annoying.
