Utilising @moosehunter's fantastic libhac library, I present to you, SwitchExplorer!

Features:
  • Makes datamining extremely easy.
  • BFSTM playback.
  • Extract individual folders, files, the ExeFS or the entire thing.
  • Automatically finds the main nca within an XCI or NSP and opens it.
  • Update support.
  • You can open XCIs, NSPs and NCAs directly from explorer and load it into the program.
Usage:
  • Ensure you have your prod.keys file and title.keys file in <Home Folder>/.switch/*
  • Open an NCA, XCI or NSP...
  • ???
  • Profit!
Tips:
  • Organise the title.keys file like so: <Rights ID> = <Titlekey>
  • Organise the prod.keys file like so: <Formal name> = <Key>

This is a great app. The only issue I see is the dependency on having an accurate and updated title.keys file. Since we lost access to CDN I'm not sure how well that list is being maintained (if it is at all). It would be great to have an option in this program that reached out to a snip.li (or other) repository that was keeping this up to date.

Updated it to version 1.1 now.

Improvements:
  • Better NSP/XCI reading, done pseudo-accurately this time via its CNMT.
  • Control NCA parsing, gets title info and icon from Control when applicable.
  • Meta exporting, can export the list of files, icon or NACP either raw or as a JSON.
  • Now tells you the rights ID of the key required to extract a title when it's missing from title.keys.
  • General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience.
Oh yeah, and it's a whole lot faster now too!

Thanks for the update Simon. Any idea why it seems to have broken DLC viewing? Everything else is massively better though :)

I'm getting a "Error reading NCA are you sure you have the correct keys". I am using the prod.keys and title.keys I dumped when I modded my switch
