    The method used in this tutorial is outdated! Use this one instead until i make a new one( and probably even then )

    Old Post if you still wanna use that

    Great work man. Looks kind of fuzzy for a guy like me, but it`s a great option. I love Nintendo, but certainly I hated how much they limited the Switch, that is really a low blow.

    yes, with a plugin. You just download the plugin put it to the plugins folder and you can then export and edit images as .dds.

    Also if mod could fix my typo in the title (costum to custom) that would be very nice

    I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I'm trying to use a community made theme (To be specific it's the blue-purple from Tomoko Kuroki on the QCEAN Discord server) but it just won't work. I've placed the 0100000000001000 folder (which contains fsmitm.flag and a folder named lyt with common.szs inside it) in my titles folder which is in my ReiNX folder but when I boot my Switch up it's just the default background.

    Who really knows where ?
    The makeszs.bat i downloaded with a "qlaunch_background" pack wasn't correct, it didn't has the "-little" option, so it generated a big endian file, if you have that pack i recommend you check.

    yeah some people pointed that out, but for me it always worked with the one i uploaded on gdrive and that should be the same as in the qlaunch_background.7zip

    double-check if you have fs_mitm.kip in the sysmodules folder of the according cfw, that you have fsmitm.flag in the 010000000001000 folder and that if youre using reinx fs_mitm.kip is activated in the reinx-toolkit

    I tried using a community made theme and am also just seeing the basic white applied. I followed directions and placed the files where they need to be but no luck.
