    By what measure would plagiarism have to be 1:1 to stand up in court? Copying someone's methods and not-so-subtly rewriting them to achieve the same results is pretty clear-cut plagiarism - the person doing the copying has still directly benefited from the original code and its author's work, while essentially claiming it as their own.

    Additionally, this has nothing to do with GPL - there are violations of other licenses, but unless you're claiming that there's something other than hactool or Tinfoil being copied from without attribution, nothing he's done has violated GPL, that I can tell (unless he also took Goldleaf code). The license violations for hactool and the JSON libraries can be resolved as simply as adding a couple text files to his repository and the SX Installer archive. That's it! No forcing him to open-source his code, no refunding his bribe from TX, just a five-minute fix. But failure to do that much ruins any credibility -snip- might have the next time he goes job-hunting anywhere in the software development field, or anywhere he might be trusted to oversee code at all.

    It doesn't really matter whether or not you care about license violations; you're happy as long as you get what you want for free, and you're certainly not paying anyone or persuading anyone to develop these tools. But what's important is that people who develop the tools he's basing his work on and the people who will decide whether or not to hire him in the future do care about those little bits of text and what they mean.

    Ideas, data structures, and (generally) headers are not copyright-able. To include those licenses would be admitting that copyrighted portions of their code were used, which is simply not true. I used non-copyright-able code from hactool (mostly nintendo structure definitions that were heavily modified).

    As far as the JSON library, its author was credited, and his repo was linked to where the MIT license could be found. Whether linking to the repo or not satisfies the license requirements is debatable, however I tell you what, in my next release i'll include the JSON parser's license buried inside of the NRO's binary :)

    @osaka35 Is it really an issue if I use names when it's listed right on their github page, or when their username is just a shortened version of it? If I wanted to dox, I'd just as soon link to his mugshot or news articles.

    It's still hactool code, even if its basis was something else, which contradicts the claim that there was no hactool code.

    And that still doesn't satisfy the license requirements, even if you have some misguided belief that it doesn't apply to you. All it takes is one message from the license holder to get Github to take down the infringing repository, and I'm betting Digable wouldn't like a black mark on their record if you got them banned from the site.

    Tools like hactool, hekate and so on are also "based on" Nintendo's code since it's mostly reverse engineered. Where do you draw the line on copyright for that?

    Anyway this thread is about SX INSTALLER. If we want to discuss copyright ethics maybe it should be in another thread

    It seems that your question got lost in the sea of bickering!
    But I would like to know the answer too!
    Can anyone confirm please???

    Hi,
    I'm trying to plug in a USB flash drive with nsp and xci files on it. SX installer is not seeing the USB at all. I try in portable mode, I try in the dock (multiple ports)…. nothing.
    What am I doing wrong?????

    Dude what the hell... ?? I was reading at first then started to notice how long it was then I started reading every other sentence. Then it just did not end so I started reading just the first sentences.... Then I just eventually skipped to the bottom.

    What's up with all of the Xecutor hate?
    They "stole" code, who cares. ._. Not like the people who are "giving" the codes are "for-profit" like you said so why should they care? They don't want profit. And unless they stole YOUR code, why would anyone else care that do not make code? If these developers really cared then they would patent their code or maybe just not release them to the public. ._. Then they could go to court about someone stealing their things. Come on guys, I think the only people here that care are the people that don't even make their own codes so why should it matter?

    As far as I'm concerned, I don't care if Jimmy gave me the product, Jack gave me the product or Jimmy told Jack to give me the product. All I care about is if I have it and it works. I don't even care if I spent money on a product that was free elsewhere. Yeah if I would have KNOWN it was free I would go get the free one. But if I had to travel across the world and I don't do that kind of thing or something, then I'd just pay a little bit of money. I don't care where it's coming from, so why should you guys? :wtf:
    If you KNOW Jack made the product but Jimmy is the one selling it and you want to "Contribute" then contribute to Jack and not Jimmy. Where does the argument come from? Where does the problem come in at? ._.

    And to top it all off, if someone gives me something to edit myself such as a WHOLE GAME... The game is free and it was given to the public to use with their own things and I USE IT WITH MY OWN THINGS... Thennnnn where is the problem? O-o If Jimmy doesn't like that Jack used his stuff then next time Jimmy won't tell people to use his stuff. And Jimmy HIMSELF will make it known he is the original developer... But again, why would Jimmy care?

    Windows Firewall is turned on by default. Make sure the app/port isn't being blocked or used.

    Hey, I couldnt find your original post. Try removing / moving all NSP's so it cant see them, then trying to boot up. There may be a bad NSP it does not like that is corrupted.

    edit: i'm assumign you are crashing upon start up.

    I am on about the switch error booting the installer up, not windows related. @SonyUSA thanks for your help I will have another go in a while but does this google drive connection actually work with the sx installer version?

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

    Yes that’s what’s happening I’m trying to use the windows Google drive connection I have set the steps up correctly put the locations. conf in switch/sx/.. but when I boot the installer app back up it errors on the switch screen I have to hard reset.

    @blawar couple of other issues as well the app doesn’t seem to find all my nsp on the route so I have to go too sdmc install that way also even though I select delete nsp after install it doesn’t do it? I was using dragon ball xenoverse dlc & update it would not work for them I’m not sure if you can replicate the nsp install your end but seems to be an issue. It also sits on the installing screen you have to go back with B?
