    A quick reminder that linking to SX OS, vanilla or modified, is prohibited on our site. The patching scripts are permissible, however you will have to obtain your own copies of SX OS elsewhere. Any uploaded or linked copies of the software will be removed.

    that link is no longer valid says the original post was removed by subreddit addmin. Sure wish I could get that mod script to work but I can't seem to be able to do that.

    Thanks to the guys who made this happen, from the start Reacher17 seemed to have no doubt that he could achieve this. I was rooting for him after reading all the negative comments :D

    Cheers!

    Edit: I've found answers to my questions, I had to downgrade Sysnand from 11.01 to 9.2 using restore (Hakate), then upgraded the firmware to 11.00 via choidujournx within SXOS.

    Running XCI's from HDD is a pretty handy feature. Now I just need to work out how to run SXOS from EmuNAND, so I can restore my SysNAND back to 11.01 for legit online gaming.

    I hope this can be fixed somehow.

    I'm not saying it is the case here, but there are something called timeboms so just because something is working now doesn't mean it can't harm your system in the future, this to say that everyone should be careful and make a full nand backup of their system before doing anything.

    Well done, glad to know that if I ever get another switch I can just transfer my license.

    Excelsior!

    Please correct me if i am wrong.
    If a user already has an sxos licence then this is no good for them yes?

    nope its no good for you at all right now since there is so much that don't work with this like a hand full of apps i bet you use, now give it time and it will be fixed but even then it is no good to you, now if some one cracks there Source code then makes a new ver or some kind of cross between atmos and sxos then yes it would be good to you then.

    Script updated - added fingerprint.txt

    If you want to use your own fingerprint - put it in a text file called fingerprint.txt and use your own licence.dat.

    If the fingerprint.txt file is missing the script will use it's own embedded fingerprint and make a licence.dat file for you automatically.


    This means you don't need to edit the python file now, when using this script.

    (put only the fingerprint shown from the switch that contains the valid licence in the text file - no other data)

    shit, I hate it when websites do that silently. Thank you for warning me. Anyone looking for the pack can look for patched310pluslic.

    EDIT: I also edited the main post on that subreddit and added the info to point to the site. So it should be visible now.

    To do a quick test I used Inaki prepathced boot and licence and I renamed both the Atmosphere and sept folders on my sd card and tinfoil works without problems.
    As soon as I have more time I will do more detailed tests.

    Ciao!

    Probably tinfoil nro can be modded to ignore these folders then, I dual boot so have these folders present - as I say, with the original untouched boot.dat I don't get any issues with these folders/files present, using the modded boot.dat tinfoil and some other sx based apps give errors (probably due to license checks).

    yeah, those apps check license.dat. You can even use atmosphere and put license.dat on the sd card so that tinfoil detects it and enables icon view, not present without a valid license.dat.

    For @Reacher17, I am doing tests with another switch lite and a vanilla boot.dat works but the patched boot.dat does not ( the boot.dat ? missing sadface logo appears; I tried with a 512gb sandisk and a 64gb samsung, both fail with patched and both succeed with vanilla, several times )... are you sure there is no checks in boot stage ? I am creating an emunand using the vanilla boot.dat now and I will test with the patched boot.dat again after that...

    If that's the case - maybe we can mod boot.dat to look for example bincence.dat instead of licence.dat - then see if it affects tinfoil? I'll maybe try that later if I get time.

    Yes, this method cannot be applied to SX CORE and SX LITE.
    Will prompt "boot.dat?"
    I just tested it.

    I will have a look into tinfoil.nro ( or the elf file ) and see if there is some easy way. The thing is the license.dat seems not enough, right ? first I need to see wether that is actually the case and then see how it accesses console fingerprint.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    yeah, it seems those check it, somehow, or the boot.dat itself does it, probably reading the firmware serial ID if boot.dat is doing the check...
