    I have recently dumped all my original switch games to xci. How do I install them? I have a hard modded switch with trinket installed. What do I need?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Only sxos can load xci files. So you either have to get an sxos licences or convert your xci files to nsp and use a different cfw

    Use n1dus to install those xci files to your SD card or internal memory. It will convert it into a installable nsp file, so you will need 3x the space of whatever the image is. So if the image is 10gb you will need 30gb of free space as 10gb is taken by the xci, then another ~10 when it converts to nsp, then the install files from that ~10gb nsp as it installs. It will also take 2x as long as a regular nsp install as there is a conversion process.

    n1dus requires you dump your keys first however. Be sure to read the pre-requisites.
