    They're selling us the payload? or they're making a CFW that only works on our personal Nintendo Switch so nobody can leak it?

    Their OS has DRM so you can only use it once. That's why they're selling it separately so you can have one USB payload with 2 Switches and only have to buy an extra OS

    From the other thread it didn't sound like you were going to regardless and to answer your question we're not sure 100% yet. We have preorder pages with broken English trying to relay how the product works to us.

    I'd say wait for more information like I have been in the other thread but you're probably set in your decision.

    here is something to think on. If it has DRM how would they check if you typed in the key to another switch/or hacked there softwere if your offline with it? seems like they did not think everything though or they must have online working with out a problem.

    Theyre gonna have a site that asks for your switches serial number then they will have a site bot that builds the cfw for that system. If there's a mismatch the cfw install will fail

    At least that's what I think...

    That's what I would do

    I believe I heard something about it requiring you to be online during initial setup.

    Most likely the CFW/OS will require activation and be linked to the specific Switch it is installed on. It could be the build-bot or an online activation like Windows does. I think it will be an online activation.

    Stupid sexy Flanders, your only upset since the jig goes on the right side and everything you sell is left handed.

    As far as i see if you want piracy this is cheaper then a game.

    Why would they let you activate it offline? Pretty much all DRM in 2018 is online activations

    your right but still I would think you would run the risk of getting a ban from Nintendo from being online the 1st time to activate it. Will that is if they are banning this time around for cfw because they did not with cfw on the 3ds so long as you was not playing games early or cheating online and I was online all the time with my 3ds.

    Most likely a PC with internet is needed, not the Switch itself.

    You buy the key, go to their website or maybe their app. Then that will ask you for the key plus let's say the Switch Serial number or something unique from your Switch and that in turns generates your encrypted payload for your system only.

    That is my theory

    I think he means you'd have to be online using a Tool compatible with either Linux/Windows/Mac that'll likely work as a first time set-up compiler for the OS payload which could check your Unique Switch ID then write, and encrypt it into a payload, and when loading the payload up on your Switch likely through a mandatory push program (likely the same compiler program to make it an all in one proccess) it only allows you to use it as long as your Unique Switch ID matches that of the payloads encrypted ID Key...

    basically a one Switch per Payload use, or if they get crafty any certain amount can be used, so in theory they could create a bundle system for let's say a "family plan" if they absolutely wanted to using this method, capping it at let's say 2/8/whatever per payload.

    EDIT

    Darn you beat me to the punch. xD

    From sky-3ds it says that you get a key code when you buy the sx os. Also says its perfect for when you already bought the pro version. I think we wont be able to download the os at all. You will only be able to use the key once with the dongle to activate the cfw

    "
    Xecuter SX OS software is used for hacking Nintendo Switch, it also works on any Switch firmware and region console to install TX CFW. Xecuter SX OS is the software of Xecuter SX Pro, with it, you still need to prepare another tool with similar function of “Xecuter SX dongle”, then you can use it and that tool to jailbreak the Nintendo Switch to play free games.

    Xecuter SX OS Description
    Xecuter SX OS is included in Xecuter SX PRO, but if you can make you own tools, you just need to buy this Xecuter SX OS with a cheaper price. You only need this license in case you already have the Xecuter SX dongle and want to install the software on more than one Nintendo Switch™. Xecuter SX OS software license is needed for each console.

    Features
    1. Xecuter SX OS software license
    2. Tools to be installed on your Nintendo Switch
    3. Compatible with all regions.
    4. Compatible with all firmwares.
    5. Real time game switching.
    6. More features to be announced soon.
    Buying Tips
    • The Xecuter SX OS is a service not a product, after its formal releasing(around 16th, June), you can get the SX OS software license code in your email.
    • For using the Xecuter SX OS, you need to prepare your own "Xecuter SX USB dongle".
    • No need to buy it again if you already order the Xecuter SX Pro."
