    @XorTroll has released an important update for Goldleaf, his Nintendo Switch title installer and Swiss Army knife. Goldtree, its USB companion app, has also been updated aswell.

    Version 0.5 sports a quite lenghty changelog and has been described by the developer as, quote, "the most stable update ever". Let's go through some of the highlights quickly: the user interface has been revamped and now supports touch controls, a new config file enables users to customize the UI to their liking, USB installations are more stable and reliable due to some backend changes, 7.0.X support has been added (it had been available in nightly builds already, however this is the first stable release to include it officially), NSP installation received some reliability improvements (mainly to avoid being left with corrupted data due to bad installs and there's also a new check to make the installation of newer/older versions of titles more streamlined) and a good number of quality of life improvements.

    On the other hand, NCA extraction has been removed temporarily as the developer plans to implement a completely rebuilt system to support it. The CFW menu is no longer present aswell due to redundancy and usefulness issues (NXThemes are now handled externally, meaning its only good feature would be to check if qlaunch was replaced in your CFW of choice).

    As usual, the full changelog is available below:

    I tried this program for installing nsp. Crashed a couple of times. Tinfoil just worked.

    "If the title is already installed, Goldleaf will uninstall it so that the new one can be installed. This might happen with updates (share the same application Id so are considered as the same title internally)"


    I'm sorry? Does this mean you can't install updates with Goldleaf?

    Funnily enough, I've experienced a lot of errors trying to install updates with GoldLeaf which is a shame because generally speaking it's a nice app. But if I run those same updates through SX Installer, they install with no issues.

    I mean the 3 main guides don't really change and are pretty up to date... all they need to do is point to the new recommended homebrew.

    did you submit a bug report? also did you update goldtree if you were using that?

    As of now theres no way to ignore updates that need mandatory 7.X keys or key generation 8. I just updated from 6.2 with ChoiDujourNX and now I can install the updates without errors
    But we can convert keygen 8 game/updates to lower firmware keys like 7{FW6.2) with NSC_Builder but you need to provide the tool 7.X keys.

    tinfoil & lithium couldn't install Dead or alive Xtreme 3, Mario Party, & Super Robot T-Wars game updates until I updated to 7.0.1 :) in fact it said the updates require a higher firmware even if I ignore the FW check. Thats what everyone on lower fw are experiencing b/c new game updates require 7.X keys

    You arent on the latest version or didnt read the release notes. You have to enable "standard crypto" in the install options to re-key to a lower master key.

    The update will work, make sure you have the latest version, when you install it, enable "convert standard crypto" in the install options, this lowers the master key.

    Well guess I learned something new today. Since I have the 7.X keys guess theres no reason to to use autorcm anymore going back to 6.2

    Yup I had my first crash as soon as I tried to quit the app the first time. Pressing home crashed the Switch. Not the most stable thing and this was on 0.5. But maybe it has to do with me using SX' homebrew menu instead of HBL.
    Weirdly enough I think I'll be sticking with SX Installer. They did a really good job with the GUI and I know it's just a modified Tinfoil but Tinfoil doesn't even have a GUI.

    I used to install a ton of games but these days I barely install anything. I don't check the news daily anymore. The only reason I've been using tinfoil is because you can skip firmware requirement on installation. Maybe you can do that on SX too now, then I'd just use that. I can't remember the gold leaf version I used, maybe 0.3 but I'm not sure.
