    Does this work without soft-modding?

    there is a lot of misinformation and speculation going around. This is exactly the same as installing an NSP convert, no more no less. It is just more convuenient.

    ISO is an image or master/gold copy of something now you can create your own of course but ISO is still an image that needs to be burned or pressed on to a medium to be able to be used

    XCI is a container as it can open and be read by a player and is ready to use. Like MKV/MP4 are containers that you can place different types of video codecs that can be played by any player that can read these codecs

    Might be a dumb question but does it work on a vanilla console without CFW ?

    Tell me about it! I’m fully aware of the confusion surrounding xci and injected certificates, sharing etc.. that’s why I had that thread shut all about donor certificate sharing many got confused with the method getting it completely wrong and receiving a ban, it got very messy I still get a lot of private messages today about how to do it. I wasn’t sure whether this might of been a different method than a basic nsp conversion, seems not.

    Yeah, you're right i guess.
    I forgot that you can convert NSP's to Xci.
    Thanks for correcting me.

    So when this installs, how does it appear? Like a tile on the homescreen? and you just boot and play like normal?

    Veyr handy and simple tool if so.

    this app just install directly to sd or nand instead of dumping it to xci file

    but interest a game card adapter that has store backup games that you could change with a sd card

    No, you can also mount an ISO in a virtual drive. Like you can with XCI on SXOS.

    There are also programs that can read from XCI, as there are programs that can read from ISO.

    https://switchbrew.org/wiki/Gamecard_Format

    Known internally as "XCI" (NX Card Image), this is the format used for storing the contents of a Nintendo Switch Gamecard.

    Yes it will appear like a normal title on the homescreen.
    It does not sorry, it will require cfw, and if it’s atmosphere that you’re using, it’ll also require fs patches (sigpatches).

    Nice release! Probably a stupid question, but could this be used as a way of bypassing the update to the game card reader that's on firmware 4.0.0 and higher, if your system NAND is on 3.0.2 or lower? Would it be possible to install, for example, a game card of Super Smash Brothers Ultimate to an SD card or emulated NAND, and then run it on the emulated NAND (with the required firmware version) while keeping the "no gamecard" patch on, or is this not possible? Thanks in advance, and thanks again for the release!

    Pet peeve: it's not a NAND chip on the Switch, it's an eMMC. Either refer to it as such or call it the USER partition.

    Complaints aside, awesome tool. It saves me the round trip of nxdumptool -> goldleaf, which is an improvement in my book.

    I considered it, however I kept it as Nand because i feel as though most users see internal memory as Nand. I didn't want to confuse anyone with the correct naming.

    Though i am most likely going to change the name to System memory as this is what is displayed in the data management section in the settings, which I also follow when displaying the free storage space in-app.

    The way it works is that it writes to a “placeholder” file, after writing to that file is successful, that placeholder is registered. My app automatically deletes all placeholders on startup, so if there were any temporary files left over from a unsuccessful install (from my app or other title installers), they’re removed.

    So it only writes the exact data it needs to when installing, and cleans up should anything fail.
