    Are there instructions on how to run it? I plugged cable to my windows 10, went to sxos homebrew, ran nxmtp and nothing happened. Did I miss a step or its just not working?

    Thanks, I'll take a look.

    I plan to examine any possible issues with Windows 7 soon.

    Try running nxmtp before you plug in. Are you looking under "This PC" in File Explorer?

    Check in Activity Monitor, see if something called PTPCamera starts when you connect nxmtp. It was for me, and that was blocking mtp clients from detecting the Switch. You can kill PTPCamera from Activity Monitor, then start the mtp client (eg Android File Transfer is working great for me now). Disabling PTPCamera permanently is less straightforward tho.

    Worked well for me, on OSX 10.11.6 (El Capitan), Switch FW 6.1.0 Atmo 0.8.2.
    Only thing I noticed is it took a while for any transfer to start (once it did, it was fast!).

    This only allows transfer of files less than 4gb right?

    Normally I would agree, but honestly, with TX team stealing everyone's shit, this might be for the better.
    I mean everyone kept saying, "If you don't want them to steal your code, then don't make it open-source."

    Working great, thanks for your hard work.

    Only request I have is to keep the screen on until you exit the app.

    Great application! This makes hacdiscmount obsolete for live nand mounting! I also have been taking the time to make icons for NROs without them. I took the time and made one for nxmtp, if anyone would like to use it, feel free! To modify/add an icon to an NRO, google search NRO Asset Editor, top link is GBATemp. Link: i.imgur.com/yW7inFx.jpg

    If anyone wants a link to download it, just PM me and I'll upload them. Use NRO Asset Editor to add icons to NROs without any! It's the top link on google when searched, it's on here!

    Yes. You can even transfer files without closing a game.

    Exactly, this is the same thing as removing the MicroSD, and putting it into your PC. EXCEPT you can now also browse the entire NAND live by using this!

    It seems like there's a way to do that, at least a couple of homebrews have it implemented now but I'm not sure if it's documented for everybody. But in the meantime, you can turn off auto-sleep in system settings.
