    So I have been on SX OS and I ordered a 512 gb card and plan to switch to Atmosphere. I have a shitton of XCIs though that were on my external, I seem to recall hearing peeps that you could install from external hard drive to sd card with Tinfoil, but I had my switch docked with the external hard drive plugged in and no games were found. How do I install XCIs from external or am I mistaken is that not possible on Atmosphere?

    You can't install from USB hdd, but you can install from PC using USB cable... And plugging that HDD to your PC will grant your Tinfoil/Lithium access to it.

    Download NUT, open it, open Tinfoil and plug the USB cable.

    You have to add a protocol, called USBFS to Tinfoil. Easy and self explanatory.

    Thanks worked like a charm. How do you queue a bunch of games to install at once? Or do you have to do it one at a time?

    I'd like to know the same thing.
    I guess for now it's one at a time.
