    Is one tool better than the other?

    Other than cost, is there a real difference in usage?

    At the moment, SX OS is the only CFW to offer pure .XCI support along with .NSP support while ReiNX only supports .NSP games. However, you can convert some .XCIs into .NSP format to work with ReiNX. Oh and ReiNX supports the nogc patch which is only useful for people who update without burning fuses from a firmware below 4.0 to one above.

    Are there any known issues with converting XCI to NSP?

    Not all games are converted properly. The blame falls on the tool, not on the CFW. Originally, .XCIs converted into .NSP worked on SX OS but there were still some games that wouldn't work and those problem games carried over into ReiNX.

    Is there a list of games that aren't converted properly?

    the only adventage of SX at the moment is XCI, Rei is free and also it has moddiffy the thelemitry to no be banned but the risk will be there. I had bought Sx Pro and for me its okey but if you don´t want to pay just use Rei

    The tool's fairly new and support for ReiNX is newer still. Not to mention the list of .XCI exclusive games are abysmally small to begin with. I have not seen any such list.

    Atmosphere is still a WIP so its not available for public usage. However ReiNX is highly derived from Atmosphere so expect the two to be a little similar when it is fully released.

    If ReinX/Atmosphere obtain XCI support, are they basically the same at that point?

    Well Atmosphere has other plans such as EmuNAND support that ReiNX won't feature so eventually Atmosphere will eclipse ReiNX. The whole point of ReiNX is an easy-to-use CFW while Atmosphere's design philosophy is replacing the entire OS of the Switch to allow the user to do anything they want (with the proper support implemented).

    Ah I see. Are hacks easy to switch (pun intended)?

    If I wanted to use ReinX for now, but change to either Atmosphere or SX OS Pro (or vice versa), what would that process entail?

    Switching between CFWs basically entails moving around some files on your SD card and sending a different .bin file

    Sounds simple enough.

    Do you know if EmuNAND is planned for SX OS Pro?

    They'll probably implement EmuNAND once the community comes up with it
    That statement was made in their second FAQ way back before SX OS even launched and its up to 1.5 with no EmuNAND support yet. It is not known when TX will implement EmuNAND but I believe they might add support to it eventually.

    If we're talking about the SX Pro then the main advantages are .xci support and the dongle which makes it a portable solution. You can get around the portable aspect by using NX Loader but .xci loading is yet to be supported by anyone else.

    Are the other tools tethered? And are XCI support and portability the only main differences?

    Yes, the exploit requires tethered execution by means of injecting the payload from either a computer/phone/SX Dongle ect

    .xci is the main difference with SX Pro as it's the only way of loading them. This will no doubt change eventually.
