    I am thinking about going from the free KOSMOS I use to SX OX

    if I understand right I can hook a USB hard drve to my dock... correct ? the switch is mostly used docked anyway with a 256GB SD in the system.

    Kinda the only reason I want SXOS.


    Also should be no reason my NS-Atmos injector would not work right ? I asked a certain online seller this and hey had no damn clue LOL

    Uuuuu
    You should be able to install from a USB HDD, but I never tried it. No XCI support, and your NS-Atmos should work with the correct payload.

    yup im using my 8TB external for hacked switch which I also use to for my K-Exploited PS4
    Despite the hate against sxos it does grant us a bigger library of games at home.

    Yes but only XCI games. So if you have/download any NSP game you'll need to get into a habit converting them to XCI with NSCBuilder.

    You'll have to use the sxos loader menu to use your xci games or its built in ftp/cheats. xci's are treated like game carts they will show on horizon & game album, but you need to go through the sxos loader to launch them. Thats probably the biggest con with the sxos b/c the bigger your game collection the longer the scrolling it takes to get to the said game lol. The games on the SD card are loaded last. https://gbatemp.net/threads/nsc_bui...lder-game-updates-dlc-in-a-single-xci.522486/

    you can install xci's but not on an external hdd, which you are pretty much better off just using nsp's at that point. But yeah xci's can be mounted on external hdds

    No problem external hdd loading is what opensource users want, but b/c it requires illegal dealings to function it may never get touched on.

    You need to insert them like a game cart from the SX OS album.

    Thats exactly what I mentioned. You'll only need to convert nsp's to xci if the game was only released digitally [Eshop]. Put the xci's on the ex hdd like you would on an SD card and just load them up through the sxos album loader its not complicated at all. The sxos was designed to be simple to use
