As far as I know splitted XCIs files for XCIs bgger than 4GB are supposed to work on SX OS. But I cannot get any to work. They show up on the SX Rom Menu, but crash on mounting. I used XCI Cutter for splitting them.

Got a splitted game to work that I splitted with that Java based tool. However the game icon isn't shown on the rom menu. It's just white. Is that normal?

sd corruption? what do you mean? i just switched from fat32 to exfat

It's a commonly reported problem, everyone says "I've had no issues with exfat, right up until they do". Any dev involved with homebrew will tell you avoid exfat, best to take their advice. Besides there are plenty of ways to overcome the 4GB limit for both XCIs and NSPs

I see, I'll probably switch back to fat32. How do i overcome the 4GB limit though?

For XCI's use an XCI cutter. I use this one, but I think there are others.

For NSP's, either install over network via Tinfoil/DZ, or use the recently released NSP Divider
