    All my nsp's work on 8.0.1. I stopped using sx installer and went either goldleaf or tinfoil for nsp installs. Sx installer has been known to have corrupted data installs since last year and that's one the reason why I stopped using it.

    That’s not true. I’m on 6.2 and got corruption message with the built in tool. However the games still work. So this is not a clear indicator that the games don’t work on the new sxos

    That's what TX said, "the games will work even with corruption message" - that's why they ignored it in the past. Now if you update to FW8.01 and use SXOS 2.71, they won't work anymore.

    But does the album installer work now? Meaning, if you re-install them via the new firmware the SXOS update through album, they wont read as corrupt anymore?

    Why you use NSP having SX OS, the whole point of SX OS is XCI for me is forwing great.

    Many XCI's take a long time to display. When you have a 400gb sd card willed with XCI's the album takes like 3 min to cache it

    The new SXOS native installer works fine now, no more corruption message. Look on the bright side, you have to reinstall all those corrupted games again, but at least now they are all installed properly without problems in the future.

    Yeah I am thinking about it that way as well haha :)

    Just debating if I want to update now.... I don't use emunand at all (on a launch unpatched switch) and not sure if I lose anything by updating the sysnand to 8.x.x or if I am in the clear if I have an unpatched switch.

    I ony use xci, mostly custom xcis with built in updates and dlc. Not a single issue. And I know I may miss out on some future update or dlc this way, but it doesn't bother me at all.

    Using 2.7.1 on 8.0.1 btw

    But it's still good to have information here too. I'm still on 6.20 CFW using Atmosphere.

    I'm still interested on what's going on....and any issues I might run into if I "pull that trigger" so to speak right now.

    Do you make the XCIs or find them already compiled? When I upgraded to a 512gb card I went from pure xci and exfat to emunand on fat32 and I'm thinking of switching back.
