    Hi gang.

    I have my switchme installed and having a blast. Running Hekate and Reinx.

    Questions

    1. How do I load SX OS, is there a way to boot this from Hekate as a payload, I've tried and it doesn't recognise file

    2. XCI and keys. I'm about to try 4nxci. But am wary I will need keys are there any tools for this?

    If you're running ReiNX why would you want to run SX OS? Also SX OS doesn't run backups without a purchased license, it only runs homebrew

    SX OS will not run backups if you don't buy the license. You probably bought the Pro bundle which already comes with a license for the OS plus the dongle and jig

    I guess you're trying to load the boot.dat from hekate? You need to load the payload.bin from the sx os website (listed as SX Loader 1.0) from hekate and it will launch the boot.dat as normal.

    Okay now i understand what you mean. Yes, Team Executer is interested in making profit of a console hack and i also dont like this that much! I bought the licence for less than 15 € and that was it worth for me at that time. But i also prefer a free solution. I did it because of the xci loader... Shame on me^^

    I don't mind paying for a licence if it works well. I just want to try It out first.

    So there is a a payload bin file. I downloaded sx 2.0 and it only had a zip file with day inside. I copied that to payloads folder.

    Yeah you can get it from the official sx os website (I can't link it here, but it was the first result when I googled "SX Loader 1.0"). Click "Download" at the top, then currently the third red button is "Download SX Loader 1.0", which is the payload.bin. You can rename it on your sd card if you want it to be more obvious which payload it is.

    Thanks mate. The best thing I can see about it is it loads xci no problems which seem to be more common. Do I still need keys for the games when running SX os?

    You can run any xci files or install any nsp files you download without having to worry about keys.

    . Once I've loaded the bin, is it easy enough to purchase the licence and upgrade from within the firmware to 2.0?
