    Is there any way to improve this ?

    Yes, it is faster with usb 3. I am getting about 20+ with 3.0.

    You can get around 35mbps with goldleaf 0.3, as goldleaf 0.5 has slower speed.

    get it from goldleaf github, as far as I know you won't be able to archive usb 3 speed, as I have seen it only hit around 30 ish mb/s roughly 35/36 mbps etc.

    It is not downgrading , you can have both 0.3 and 0.5 on the same switch, the system allow it, for me 0.3 have faster transferring speed for me, but it is still capped around that 35 mpbs.

    I have not tested it, but I believe that your micro SD speed will influence the transfer speed as well, there's no way you can install at 35 Mbps if you have a class 10 micro SD card with 10-15 Mbps writing speeds.

    You are correct sir! you need to also have a fast micro sd card capable at writing at a high speed - also what spec does the switch have for writing to those cards? - bus speeds are also important in that the data received from the usb-c port needs to then flow via the switch firmware and then to data on the micro sd card and probably gets converted along the way at some point - all these things matter as well.

    Ideally a class 10 u3 card

    As I said before, have not tested it. I have sxos to install directly from an external USB 3.0 drive and a 15 gb game installs in about 5 minutes. I have a Samsung 128 gb u3 card.

    I assume you all are actually using the B unit (capitals, meaning bytes), not b (bits). With current GoldLeaf I get up to 15MB/s so 120mbps.
