    As I didn't find the information somewhere else on GBAtemp.

    ---

    Another day, another release by your friends from Team Xecuter.

    SXOSUpdater.png

    This time we bring you a simple app for the PC, that allows you to update 'offline' our SX OS, it works just like our Switch OTA Updater, but runs on your PC, and is useful for those having issues accessing our SX Portal website, or trouble downloading and unpacking files.


    To use:

    • Insert an SDCard for your Switch Console into your PC.
    • Start the software, and select the Device Letter in the dropbox menu.
    • If you have SX OS, the update status will be checked and the Changelog displayed,
      (You can also select between Stable (or) Beta versions by checking the checkbox).
    • Otherwise, if your SDCard has no SX OS, you will instead be prompted to install SX OS.
    • Click Update (or) Install to start the process.
    You can find/download this new tool HERE in our TX Community Resources section.

    I don't expect to use it (not pulling out my SD card just for that), but I guess it's OK for what it is.

    Yes i guess it is for people who have that specific problem, but it is good they offer a solution for them (don't need it either).

    Nothing wrong with an easier way to update. Im sure it was requested for this to be made.

    I don't plan to use it either, but it is worth sharing the news for others who might want to. :)

    Easier? Seems like a lot more steps to me, compared to the in app option.

    But many people reported having some issues with the OTA update. Best is to manually download and replace the "boot.dat" on the SD card

    That's exactly what I do. I just transfer the new boot.dat with Hekate's USB transfer utility. No need to pull out the SD card.
