    Just found out about this thread.
    Is this actually legit?
    Like does this allow anyone to use SX OS and crack any kind of license and use it without the paywall license?

    Also, I have a couple more questions:
    1) I read something about Hekate/Tinfoil going in this thread, someone could care to explain me what is going on?
    2) Does TinWoo allow for file browsing like Goldleaf does? Tbh, at this point I'm only using Goldleaf because of its ability to be used as a file browser as well, I don't even install NSPs nor use its browser at all, so I'm looking for a proper way to use another NSP Installer that might allow file browsing too.

    Where did that rumour come from? Also there's loads of alternatives to stealth mode, pihole/dns url blocking /incognito etc so if you're worried you can also deploy one or some of these alternative methods.

    Do a screenshot of what you mean, also if bmp/png/size etc.

    Also that previous post was just meant for a bit of a laugh, I didn't expect anyone to take it seriously.

    No one wants to answer you? Then I try (as much as I kept up with the thread).
    Yes this is legit. Meanwhile even the most recent SX OS version (3.1.0) has been "cracked".
    You can either use Python3 and patch a license by yourself (you need a legit license from someone though but someone donated his and it should be around here somewhere) or keep your life simple and look it up in the wild.
    I've tested it on a friend's Switch and it's indeed working great. Only issue we ran into was that chainloading it (through Argon or hekate or from within Atmosphère with homebrews like HekateBrew) often leads to a black screen but if you use the official SX OS payload.bin to directly boot from RCM into SX OS, it works with a 100 % success rate.
    It indeed gets you behind the paywall license and lets you mount XCI games.

    To your questions:
    1. It's not only SX OS itself that checks for a valid license.dat on your SD card (which is prevented by the solution in this thread) but also a few homebrews/apps. As you might know, Tinfoil by blawar is the most popular one among them. It does the check on its own so it won't have all features with this "hacked SX OS" that it would have for ppl with a "real" license. Don't know if this has been resolved already tbh (from what I saw, blawar even gave some hints in this thread on how to trick Tinfoil).
    2. I'm not using it but pretty sure it does like all Awoo forks since the first main menu entry on the first screenshot here is literally the SD file browser where you can look up your NSPs on your card:

    incognito doesnt properly work with mariko units with how it writes to nand.

    even the older version is hit or miss.

    atmospheres exosphere also didnt work originally because it worked exactly the same way and had to be fixed in a newer version.

    the downside of dns blocking is for other services it limits the switches network speed

    Much appreciated :)
    Didn't know all versions of SX OS were cracked by now.
    What a world lol

    As for the other two things:
    1) So there is indeed a way to avoid Tinfoil nagging about the Hekate files after all without having to run some hacky app that renames the folders/files temporarily?
    2) I ran TinWoo, but I seem to only be able to browse to look for installable files (XCI, NCZ, NSP, etc.), but doesn't seem to allow moving, copying or just seeing other files with other extensions.

    Why not just use goldleaf?

    Thanks for posting, is this the only patch that's needed now and all the others are not needed? Also is the value of "new key licence" just the fingerprint? and the sha256 hash of this fingerprint the value that goes into the end 2 lines of license.dat file?

    no, not for the moment. you can create your own license with a private key. then put the public key in the patch.

    SX OS is stuck at 11.0.0, totally irrelevant now, event the question about xci files.

    because with goldleaf you can install games, not mount/run them directly
