cool!. Could you please link The Homebrew? The app I used to use crashes. I've been using tin foil or hekates usbtransfer functions. Sounds like this is a little bit faster. Which is good

No OTG. Plain type-c to type-c cable. No special soft on phone. Just system dialog for file copy. Speed 30-40 mb/sec depends SD card or nand.

I try everything with no internet access between switch and android tablet hotspot

The stupid switch console always shut down WiFi after around 30 seconds

It detected no Internet then disconnect from android hotspot

I can't move large file like nsp or nsz

Just some 1-20 mb nro file etc

This is for ftp situation

For switch mtp homebrew it always ask internet access



I guess my only chance is buy a $100 windows 8/10 tablet

This way I can install game from PC without internet and problem

I just can't take out my android tablets SD card then use "type-c/ micro sd /usb" three in one drive install game via switch's charging port now.


If you often take out SD card it will damage


In the end it can't be read. Hassle.

In this case you're blaming it on the Homebrew when it could just as easily be whatever you're running on your phone also these are all designed with an OTG cable in mind. That's not necessarily the same thing as USB C to USB C cable. Try tinfoil to a PC. If that works you know m t p is working. You can go ahead and work on the Android side if that's the case

Can you access sd card : /sxos/titles by use tinfoil or any other homebrew sir?

Cheat txt file needs to place on your Switch's SD Card in: /sxos/titles

Tinfoil has full MTP. Make sure it is enabled in the options. When you plug it into the PC it pops up with several folders. There is a firmware folder where you can find your current firmware if you want to pull it out of your system, there is an install folder where if you drop an NSP will automatically install it for you there is a Micro SD folder as well. It's the same thing as plugging your MicroSD into the computer. I'm not sure the transfer speeds you will experience however I am happy with the speeds I get out of it. I just use the cable that came with my Pro Controller

Hekate has a similar option. Its UMS it's pretty much the same thing as connecting your SD to the computer. I also get pretty fast transfer speeds out of it. There's also a few mpt homebrew apps....

Thanks for help


I create this thread because I want a tools / homebrew move anything around emu nand just use switch only


I don't like touch any PC and android phone/ tablet for hack switch thing


When i open Tinfoil it won't let me access "Emutendo " "sx os" folder on sd cards emu nand

Other homebrew like sx installer goldleaf they all unable to access "Emutendo " "sx os" folder on sd cards emu nand

If I upload txt / 60 fps cheat file use android ftp to switch

These file will be send on switch's sd card root

You can't send them to "sx os" folder or something else
I think it blocked

If you want cheat file work you must put them in " sx os" folder


The switch itself can't move any file from SD card root to "Emutendo " " sx os" folder too
It just blocked

So I must take out SD card from switch then plug to android tablet put everything I need to this SD card.

Sorry for bump but is there any homebrew can read cheat txt file from SD card emunand root

This way I can use android ftp upload cheat txt file to switch's SD card root

Not in "sxos" folder which is unaccessible....
Then i can enable cheat code without take out SD card from switch just for config / set this whole thing....

Sxos folder IS accessible natively using tinfoil no PC or phone
Use File browser>Sdmc/sxos
You can even copy and paste.

I just did it.

You can also access it with tinfoil on a PC or Phone in MTP with a USB cable as well.

Just did it.

MTP allows NSP installs. Just drop in the install folder.


You can access the ENTIRE SD in Hekate in UMS too using a USB cable.

You can update the cheats file using the all-in-one updater. Or a variety of other Homebrew methods.

I think you're making this a little bit harder than it needs to be.

You do not need an internet connection for MTP. Period. I'm in airplane mode

Heres a payload program that works

Choose your destiny,

As far as using your phone that will depend on your phone. There is your weakest link.

    You need a medium to take up the heat and take it away.

    And the denser the medium, with a higher specific heat capacity, the better.
