    I've looked around, and from what I could find, Axiogame seems to be the cheapest place for a license - $24.95

    Does anyone know if there are any other sites cheaper than this one?

    I've never bought anything from that site, but looking at past threads state that they have a problem with sending codes to people in a timely fashion.

    if you happen to have a spare unused license that you'd like to sell, send me a PM!

    I could not get Axiogame to accept my Visa card so I bought from the next cheapest site, ModchipsDirect. http://www.modchipsdirect.com/
    I paid $28.49.
    But at this point you are just as well off using Atmosphere which is free. I only bought SX OS for the emuNAND since Atmosphere didn't have one yet and I still wanted to be able to use online for legit games.

    Not an SX user myself but i've heard multiple times sxflashcard is the fastest/cheapest one and you can use paypal and use sx2019 to get 2 dollars off

    Avoid axiogame my card info got stolen there. It's a good thing I used a prepaid credit card on that already shady website.

    Thanks guys, and everyone else for the suggestions. I was close to buying from Axiogame, but I decided not to due to the addition of your experiences with that company. It really is a shame, because they're still the cheapest.

    I would try sxflashcard, but something about that site just doesn't feel right. Not to say that I know without a doubt there is something shady. I'm happy for everyone else that has had a great experience with them. it's just a gut feeling I can't shake.

    Modchipsdirect, I've purchased an sx pro from them in the past for a switch I later sold last year. Great transaction. Looking at their site now, MCD wants almost $3 to $4 more than competing resellers for a license and there's still an advertised wait of around 24hrs. In my opinion, the license should cost more than the others, just because they are a US reseller.

    I think I will give Atmos/Kosmos a real try this time around. I've loaded it before, made an emunand, etc. But when it came down to actually using it, I just thought about the extra steps I have to take in order to continue using atmosphere compared to sxos (sigpatches, lockpick, incognito rcm, etc.), and I just didn't think I'd want to continue the upkeep or the possible troubleshooting after each update.
    But now, I think I will give Atmos a real shot this time.

    You should use Incognito_RCM regardless of which CFW you are on but Lockpick is optional. You may never need those keys for anything but there are a bunch of tools that make use of them so they are good to have.
    Atmosphere takes some effort to set up the first time but once you have it set up updating is simple enough and only takes a few minutes. Sure, it's not as easy as SX but in return you get updates much faster.

    As far as incognito goes, I was referring to having to incognito rcm compared to being able to just use the nro with sxos. Atmosphere still blocks the access needed for the incognito nro to write to prodinfo, right?

    Yes and no, there is a sysmodule that makes it work, but I would just say use Incognito_RCM anyway since it's not made by blawar. Incognito is open source so it's probably fine, but I just can't support that dude anymore.

    But you are supporting me by supporting my ideas. The incognito app I released was a bare bones proof of concept, I just wanted to plant the seed for another developer to mature the idea as Jim has done.

    You're going to be in for a bad time if you try to avoid anything that has my fingerprints on it :rofl2:

    I'm just taking the piss out of you :grog:

    Yeah well, I'm sure something better will come along eventually :P
    I do like most of your ideas, just not your execution.

    I bought the license and not sure why this process has to take 24 hours.
