    Im not deluding myself with anything, dont get lemon with me sir..
    To be honest i dont give a fck if its stolen or not. if i can use it i will, the same with the open source..
    Your deluded to think i give a fck..
    like i have said who took what code first how do you or i know who was first...
    And yes i know you can reverse engineer the boot.dat and decompile code and match it blah blah blah..
    Im just sick of talk about this now hence why my first post replied to such a matter was prove it and or who gives a fck. ovb your one of those who really cares about opensource being copied and get upset when someone posts about it .Its open source deal with it.
    No false beliefs,, want to know what i believe.
    I believe i have the choice to use sx os if i please and open source, i think both are great... and they work for what i want them to do... I also believe that use girls need to stop getting all emotional when someone mentions sxos, and say oh they copied this and that . its boring...Im sure theres a lot of us here that dont care and dont want to see another post about they copied my homework..
    Its time to just drop it. End of.

    I really don't care whether or not you use it, I'm simply giving you the facts. It's your choice whether you find their product questionable due to these facts, or not. However, I will remind you that SX OS does not offer any real benefit over the free software alternatives, beyond XCI loading, which has met its demise thanks to conversion tools and over-the-air NSP installers. NSPs of which are easily and readily available on any website that had previously only distributed XCIs. Not to mention the countless pieces of software that are exclusive to said alternatives, like custom modules and kernel patches, due to the closed-source nature of SX OS.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    And yet tons of people did. Hell i thought about buying it myself at one point but all retailers in my country were completely sold out. Glad i didn't buy it though like i did fir the Gateway on 3ds since now i have a free alternative! And hey, paying for the dongle and the jig i wouldn't mind, especially since the jig seems to be really high quality. My qualms with TX is them charging you a software license, to me that just screams greed. But that's just me

    I already added the exfat option without burning fuses!
    No AutoRCM required. The thing with AutoRCM is that sometimes i forget to charge my switch and it turns off. So i dont want to be dealing with the charge issues lol

    Do you know If there is any risk if i disable airplane mode to use my joycons??
    Can i forget my network settings and disable airplane mode?

    The joycons connect via the bluetooth connection .So you can have airplane mode on and just turn the bluetooth connection back on to use the joycons

    Hmm...with mine, I just deleted the network connections but didn't turn on airplane mode as I can't think of how it will connect when there is no network settings...

    It won’t sitting in your house but if you travel with it don’t forget about the Nintendo Hotspots. Nothing but airplane mode will prevent connecting to those.

    Use Hekate and TomGer's SD files. The only advantage of SX Pro is it can load XCIs, but NSPs are better. Hekate and SD files are basically just finished parts of atmosphere that you can use.

    NSPs are the switch equivalent of CIAs. They can be installed to system memory, show up right on your home screen just like a normal game installed from the eshop, and eventually we will have homebrew installable as NSPs. The only advantage of .xci is they can be installed on fat32 sd cards.

    IF you use a personal dump from a physical cart XCI. it will have it's own unique header. If you use a NSP it will use a public header and cert... Hows is that not an advantage for XCIs??

    However pirated .NSP are much easier to be detected by Nintendo than a pirated .XCI so that is a CLEAR advantage of .XCI

    It's really now...they are ordered by last usage so...not messy at all

    yes last usage, imagine having 50 or more including cartridges and xci, I use 3 sd cards and nsp are a nightmare, xci is far better if you have other storage units

    That is a very good point. In my case will likely just stick to a 128GB card and rotate out games as needed. 40 games at any one time is more than enough for us. :D
