Using Finder causes issues with FAT32 and EXFAT for anything beyond dropping single files onto root. I use a Windows VM for everything Switch.

for installing things use e.g. goldleaf or tinfoil, and then usb install via NS-USBloader or Fluffy. Note that for me when I use goldleaf v0.5 works better for usb installs than the newest one (using ns-usbloader).

I cant USB install from a Mac. Goldleaf and tinfoil is installer and it works fine. The only problem is it only works With fat32. There has to be a tool that Can work around the 4gb limitation.?

Usb install using ns-usbloader works for mac, and doesn't have the 4gb limit then, as it directly installs the game. I'm using both mac and fat32...

Exfat wont work on my switch. I tryed that to begin with, but cant get it to work. Fat32 works but have the 4gb limitation.

Your OP didn't really say anything about not having the exfat update nor being able to install it. Anyway, theres no way around the 4gb limitation on fat32, you'd need something that either installs directly to the switch (I'm pretty sure most homebrew accounts for the 4gb fat32 limitation? Might not, its anyones guess) or use something like ChoiDouJour to install the exfat update...

you need to make sure the versions match I think. for me NS-USBloader-0.5.1 works with v0.5 of goldleaf. And there I just select the files press and upload on the loader, and then when you go to usb install on goldleaf it should be there... sometimes you have to try a couple of times though. Hope that works for you :) Otherwise I think there is a new update for the loader in the works (by the looks of the git anyhow) which should work on goldleaf 0.7 once it's released...

Or I just saw the goldleaf developer released a java pc client as well now - "Quark", so maybe that's easier for you...
