As you all know by now, when TX released their SX OS v2.4 earlier this week, there was a video released alongside it, and in it people quickly noticed there was a new app called 'SX Installer', well it was not fully ready then, but now is available for all to enjoy! :)
After a successful SX OS launch earlier this week (to support firmware v6.2) many of our users were asking where the SX Installer was that was teased in our new 'Features Showcase' video that was also released. :)

With great excitement we present to you SX Installer v1.0 – Now Available for download at: –> sx.xecuter.com

This full featured app takes care of installs and so much more! In fact, an overview manual is now being prepared along with screenshots and detailed information on how you can better utilize all of the features we have packed into it.

This manual will be available on our SX Portal page when it is completed, in the meantime we have opened up a dedicated 'support forum' for the app, and have decided to release it now, to get it in the hands of our loyal SX OS users so you can right away start enjoying the many functions and features it has to offer.

Basically, at its core SX Installer is an advanced NSP Installer, that allows you to simply list, view, in one easy step, automatically install all your NSPs, along with the matching Game Updates, and DLC Packages, and these can be search and grabbed from many locations, including: FTP, HTTP, NUT Server (separate app on your PC), SD, USB HDD and NAND.

But that is not all it can do, as you can see from the quick overview below of the main functions. SX Installer has the ability to directly launch XCI games, and even launch your Classic Retro 'Game ROMs' for various different emulators installed, and of course your favorite homebrew apps. It even has a built-in file browser!

PLEASE NOTE: (currently .xci launching is only supported in firmware 5.x or below – 6.x support is on it's way!)

To get started, unpack the downloaded sxinstaller.zip and move all of the contents to the root of your SD card. The "sx.nro" file should be stored in /switch/sx/

Below is just a quick overview of the main functions of our SX Installer App:
  • Ability to show titles in table view, or icon cover view.
  • Install NSP's from FTP, HTTP, NUT, SD, USB HDD, and NAND.
  • Ignores firmware requirement when installing.
  • Ability to queue multiple title installs.
  • Ability to search titles.
  • Ability to list and delete tickets.
  • Ability to export all title keys installed on the system.
  • Ability to overclock to install faster in some situations.
  • UI Translation into 12 languages.
  • Title meta-data translation into 12 languages.
  • Downloads and displays game artwork (internet connection required).
  • Ability to list, view, and delete application records (lets you uncleanly forcibly uninstall a DLC or update)
  • Ability to list installed titles, and launch them (launching is 5.x and below only)
  • Ability to list XCI's mount them, and auto-launch (launching is 5.x and below only)
  • Ability to list and install new games available, with the option to install all new games
  • Ability to automatically install the latest patch and all DLC with a game.
  • Ability to protect users from running malicious unsigned code accidentally by blocking all unsigned code installation unless explicitly enabled.
  • Ability to list and install newer updates available for your game(s), with the option to install all updates
  • Ability to list and install newer DLC available for your game(s), with the option to install all DLC
  • Ability to list all incomplete installs (like when the SD gets corrupted, or you swap SD cards without copying data), with option to reinstall all of them.
  • Ability to list and launch NES, SNES, N64, GB, GBA, SMS, SG, SCD, GG, and SG1000 RetroArch games.
  • List and launch Homebrew apps
  • File browser that lets you explore your file systems, delete files (SD only), and copy files (only SD is writable)

This could do with some updates big time. Copying to and from USB not just form USB to Sd.
Also FTP into the hard drive not just SD CARD. On the main reasons for using SX PRO is using a USB hard drive to run your XCI from.
A icon moving icon to show that a copy/transfer/delete process is happening.
Retroarch keeps crashing on me, Retroarch on its own is fine, not sure I would use roms in SX installer

:teach: Be very careful when copying files from USB HDD to your SD card, especially if you are using Ex-FAT. Exiting the app prematurely will cause corruption. Best not to use it at all. Make sure you have a recent backup of your SD card before attempting to use this function.

corruption is fun, fix it using chkdsk. My sd is corrupted all the time by purpose just for testing.

Is this the same if you use fat32 and copy from SD to SD (just to another folder) and quit early?

Fat32 should have less chance of corruption from the reports gathered here, but don't take my word for it. The problem with SX Installer is that currently it has no progress bar - the screen just freeze when copying, some people will just quit the app and caused damaged to their SD card.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

any help here?

Use the latest SXOS to install. Don't use the SX Installer.

That would happen with any homebrew app that you are copying files with. Don't press the home button at all, especially during file transfers.

Hello @ all,

can pls anyone show me the correct path of all the files, that the installer recognizes, what is what. For example,
the roms, what are the folder path to get my roms recognized as nes,snes,n64 etc. and where do I have to put
my nsp´s (updates, DLCs etc.) so that the installer recognizes them as Update or DLC in the specific sideTab. I
tried to put everything in root already, but can only install them via the fileexplorer when they are stored in root.

Sorry for qouting my own message, but can pls anyone help me out with that? I tried to copy my update/dlc nsp´s in the meaning folders
(sdmc:/sxos/dls, sdmc:/sxos/updates, sdmc:/sxos/nsp) but the updates/dlcs are not in the Updates or DLC sideTabs in the SXinstaller. In the
sxos 2.4 preview video we can saw that on the left sideTabs, there are Updates and DLC Tabs.

So when I use this installer, then install using the regular sx installer, the regular installer processes stuff that this one didn't catch, sometimes lots of things. Like I was double checking all these nsp updates I had installed and normally if something was installed, it just skips through it very quick. This time it was like it wasn't really installed.

Updates / DLC's will only show if you have the base game installed, and the Updates / DLC are newer than what you have installed.

thx for the answer buddy, but is it necessary to put the nsp´s in each folders (dlc´s,updates, or nsp´s), or can I easily put it on the root of my sdCard?

Put wherever you want but they (subfolders) have to be mounted as nsp, updates, dlc accordingly in file browser.

So when we have a base game and update it to whatever newer version the system will always remember the newer version that we updated the game to even if we completely delete the game and the update as well to reinstall it later on to play again we will always need to install the update again... Devmenu has an option to 'reset' the update data to its original state making the game playable again without the need of updating it. My question is can SX Installer do the same?
