    SXOS sucks, stolen code + selling it + w/o credits to the creators... You know what I mean... So today I'm releasing and I will be releasing their ROMMENU nros (and a nsp forwarder as well), atm only works on sxos huh, but this will change in the future (or at least I hope so)

    RECENT-UPDATE: I updated the nsp and the nros with versions 2.2(beta) 2.1(beta) and 2.0.1, now the nsp will auto load the ROMMENU.nro located at switch/ROMMENU/ROMMENU.nro

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    Pick one of the nros from the zip file attached (the one you like, 2.2_beta, 2.1_beta or 2.0.1). Place it at switch/ROMMENU/ROMMENU.nro being ROMMENU.nro the one you picked from the zip but renamed to just ROMMENU.nro, easy right?

    CHANGELOG:
    Added a README.txt with info ._.
    Updated icons in both nsp and nros, BTW, they still doesn't work on other cfw's, it will just give you a black screen, but I'm closer to manage it (thx to hexkyz for his amazing job at reversing the cfw). Also excuse the late update, I was really busy these days, more interesting things will come up soonTM ;D

    For more help or tips or whatever shoot me a DM me at discord! --> Kardch#3725

    CREDITS:
    Matt_teix for the NRO2NSP tool, credits as well to 4HNCI for the nsp builder, to switchbrew team for hacbrew tools aaand, no, no credits for TeamXecuter sorry guys. Also credits to Mike Hexkyz (and naehrwert) for his work on reversing the os!

    Credits to the original creators of half of the ROMMENU:
    yellows8, plutoo, Abduzz, jakibaki, and many many many others I left

    Anyway, enjoy it!
    BTW don't try to load two instances of the menu because it will crash the console at some point, obvious but just warning you...

    The ZIP file contains the ROMMENU nsp, the ROMMENU NROS (versions 2.2_BETA, 2.0.1 and 2.1.0_BETA) and also does contains the icon used for the nsp so you can get a quick look on how it will look like, I hope you like my releases aand, enjoy!

    Rommenu is not going to do any XCI loading, you need the TX sysmodule, that handles it.

    For mods: This is now legal, latest tools do not use the SDK.

    I know I know, the modules need to be ported to atmos or reinx to do so

    Also curious if the sxos-ftpd will work if you have the module sys-ftpd on a different cfw, I guess it will work since it's basically using it... but who knows

    Except it's TX tool so it's still illegal to share?

    Ehm no its distributed for free, this does not allow any of the "premium" features that come with a license.There is also no legal licensing on their website or elsewhere that prohibits distribution of the files contained within the boot.dat payload. In fact there is nothing that prevents the boot.dat from being available for download outside of the TX website, you can not pirate a free file.

    This is fully legal, and GBAtemp seem to be fine with allowing links to SX OS a CFW that violates several licenses itself. Do not be hypocritical with your rules.

    We have listen to devs before, so far no one (of the affected devs) have asked for SXOS links to be removed because of license violation. I very well know our rules. I haven't tried installing or look in to the file, since the last "rommenu" was a crack for SXOS, except it didn't get XCI working.

    Regardless of how you twist and turn things, even a SX OS crack is not illegal in any sense. We both know Temp avoids piracy links to prevent DMCA issues, in this case TX with a illegal product (not just due to licenses) has no way of legally requesting you take down links.

    There is no TOS or license included in SX OS that states you are not allowed to RE the software, and there is nothing that prevents further distribution.

    In fact, linking to SX OS itself is more likely to land temp in legal trouble via Nintendo.

    If you run a emulator threw the homebrew launcher of this NSP you can suspend it with home then be at the same point when you open it?

    Technically yes, it should work like the Homebrew launcher because it does have nro launching support, so basically yeah

    The rommenu nro can be extracted from the boot.dat using the hexkyz scripts, you can also extract it from this nsp like you do when extracting the romfs of a game

    I have refrained from posting previous cracked builds of SX OS to xbins, but since they have blantantly violated open source licenses I do no longer feel morally complicit in hosting this. I have put this in the /SWITCH/Switch based software/Title Management/SX OS directory, and you can access our ftp with easy-xbins if you don't want to run MIRC and connect to our channel, etc. It is totally normal for a AV to give a warning for this file since it connects to common IRC ports, which will auto-trigger antivirus warnings. It is, and has been safe, for the approx 15 years we've hosted this irc/ftp all-in-one client.

    Xecuter is making plenty of money (and has made many millions in the xbox scene) and should not be stealing open source code and selling it via licensing for their products. I would encourage everyone to just use tinfoil, atmosphere/reinx/etc for their needs instead of this release, but will provide regardless since it appears there is demand.

    Oh, yeah I forgot to mention that the app is slightly changed to be an app nro and not an applet nro, apart from other tweaks

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    So yeah here it is the "original" nro (it has icon added)
    EDIT: check the main post ;D
