    I'm sorry but this is just refusing to swallow the pill. We're talking 4 months as of this post with forget a release but not even an update on the progress of their CFW. "Heat" is irrelevant when everyday another person switches to using Atmosphere because it is actually receiving constant updates and more customers feel betrayed by a company that is no longer offering support for their product. Its not like Nintendo is going to stop paying attention to the Switch scene or TX anytime soon especially with the lawsuit filed against Gary so even if that was supposedly their plan, we would be talking potentially years of waiting. Furthermore, the last update was written by different developers indicating that the arrests have done a number on the regular TX staff and seeing as how there has not been an update since then, its likely those people were temporary and the old staff may be gone.

    I don't know how familiar you are with the Gateway situation but ironically since they are the same team, the current situation mirrors it extremely well. The only other difference is that Gateway departed on an empty promise of updating their CFW which TX did not but eventually the community had to accept that Gateway was dead. A lot of the community have already accepted the same for TX. At what point do you consider them dead? A year? 10 years? The answer is actually rhetorical because it doesn't change the fact that an update has not been pushed for months and this sets bad precedent for future updates because they can potentially take as long if not longer.

    The last update was pushed months after the previous with no progress announcements in between, in fact I'm not sure that we have ever seen TX release a mid-update progress announcement for their CFW since it launched. They only give progress updates when a new release is ready, with the exception being the last update which further backs up my hypothesis that they're trying to lay low. They clearly have the ability to update their sites since they were able to stick a new update on the SX portal but neglected to announce it. I'm not saying TX isn't dead but I think it's too early to say that it definitely is. I am certain that it is a new dev that did the last update because of missing features that were in the (private) beta build of SXOS we received before the indictment but why would they go through the trouble of finding a new dev and paying them to learn the code base only to stick out one update and never touch it again?

    If Gary gets found guilty then I'd be willing to say that it is the end of TX but until the trial is over I don't think we can say. It might look overwhelmingly likely but TX is dead now but people said that before the last SXOS release too. If we go a year without a release and Gary's trial still isn't over then I'd be willing to say that I am certain that TX is dead.

    if TX cant update or isnt allowed "cough" nindy "cough" it would be great if they could share there secrets to atmosphere on usb hdd loading and other key features of SX like a atmosphere pro or something would be happy to pay for the features if needed

    People just need to let SX OS go at this point, this is literally the pattern of gateway on the 3ds with a few small differences. Once gateway was basically obsolete (Free 3DS Cfws became easier to install, and offered most of the same features, including piracy) they just left, this is basically the same plus legal heat from ninty.

    Actually they havent, unless a fw update is required to run games, sx has never done an update for measly shitendo bug fixes when the cfw runs fine and plays new titles.

    When keys change and is required, then sx do an update.

    But tbf its 50/50 as sx os updated for 11.0 after bowser got arrested.

    Since then we havent had a mandatory update needed for new games.

    But.....

    If tx cant get resellers and sales, i doubt the people behind the cfw will work for free, as theyre paid using the dongle/chip sales.

    Its a shame really as sx was a simple file, atmos isnt and dont get why atmos cant make it more easy for users.

    If sx can run off one file, why cant they.

    Not really though because until recently TX was the only group producing Mariko mod chips. Their silence has nothing to do with a lack of profit because they could still be producing SX Cores. SXOS licenses for unpatched units was also very lucrative for them.

    Edit: Also why wouldn't they just shut down their servers completely? Someone somewhere is paying to keep the SX activation servers online and I doubt that it is cheap. They have to store the fingerprints for every console which has been activated in case someone loses their liscence.dat file.

    Why are people upset about a device not receiving updates? SX OS is not an official product so you burned your money soon as you paid for the product. You should be happy for any time you get with the device. People can complain all they want but at the end of the day they are not Nintendo so don't expect guaranteed updates.

    Writing in CAPS is considered screaming in netiquette. Nobody likes a screamer. The mod was right to delete your post, (which I haven't read), if you were screaming it. No need to whisper, though. Just write normally, like everybody else. :P
