    An update for SX OS is inevitable, with Team Xecuter sending out test units of their upcoming SX Core and Lite modchips. And it looks like we can get an idea of what that impending update brings to the table, as the update has seemingly leaked prior to its official release. As of right now, v3.0.0 is only useful to the limited users who have the new Core or Lite chips, but regardless, scene member Hexkyz has made note of some of the finer details for those interested. According to them, this update isn't a feature-focused one, and primarily exists to incorporate the new Mariko and Switch Lite units as part of devices that SX OS can boot on. Hexkyz explains these changes further in a chain of Twitter posts seen below.

    The file was available through the Xecuter site, but has been taken down by the team, who has edited the file download link to now say, "leakers are dumb".

    I would still not trust the bootlegs when it comes to hardware mods. I learned that the hard way with R4s

    Of course

    But there will be a free version eventually, always is - the failed attempt at drm just expedites that

    Anyone know where I could find this 3.0.0?

    If anyone has it, any new features? It's been like a year since they've added anything substantial.

    EDIT: Wait, I forget that sx has hardcoded keys and shit. Probably against the rules to ask for it.
    But if anyone knows of anything actually new, let me know :)

    That took a little longer than expected imo..

    From what I've seen and heard, only adds the chip support, dont quote me on that though

    While I would be weary of any ‘binary’ based bootleg, if we see an open source based solution it should be ok eventually.

    Compare say the original PSJailbreak and subsequent clone vs Gateway with it’s brick code.

    OpenXenium would like a word. Just because the Chinese bootleggers got their hands on the R4 name it doesn't mean the same will happen with the inevitable TX clones/open source solutions.

    Over half a year ago when we had no PoC, yeah.
    I do think it's funny though that they've pulled it apart before it even released.

    Damn alright, I know they've been teasing new features and for a while now, not suprised though. It probably does make sense for them to do a full increment though.

    EDIT:

    Just started reading through the hexkyz thread, mentions the following.

    Mmm this will make Tx to probably rush their product out before others start copying it, and thats bad overall. Thats why we cant have nice things

    Well maybe not for those who want open source versions and don't care about SXOS.

    Sounds like the new exploit works how I guessed it would, which is how Fail Overflow got code exec in the first place.

    question is.....can a opensource even be implimented without including the illegal numbers? by the sounds oof it it needs to overwrite the bootrom which raises the fact that nintendo can impliment a check that not even emuemmc can protect you from have fun with your banned Marikos with a 100% ban probability if you hack it

    So what you are saying is that someone is going to spend their own money to create a clone chip and then give it to everyone for free just to give a big middle finger to TX? I guess a trinket could be used with the right programming for a Mariko since it's form factor already fits in the Switch, but the Lite is a lot tighter on space. Would of course need to be tested and possible break a few Switches in the process either way.

    Unless you are talking about the boot.dat specifically. Then yea, I'm sure that will be out anytime now.
