    Not getting into any politics either I’ve seen enough to know there’s no concrete proof of either side of the argument which is pointless anyway.

    So thanks for the response didn’t feel like wasting time to install all my games as nsp if there weren’t great benefits. I might try out Donkey Kong installed to SD to see if it loads faster than XCI on SD since I hear it’s a problem game. Either way mostly just glad to be able to install updates and the like.

    Then they have to make that open source since they stole the original source. If they used tinfoil, then make it open source and not close it off

    Hi all,
    I have a folder called 'Celeste'. Within that folder is a 'exefs' folder and a 'romfs.bin' file.
    Will SX OS recognise and install this or do I need to convert to .nsp?
    If so, how do you create a .nsp file from what I've got? Can someone please point me in the right direction?

    Thanks in advance.

    Even if they did steal some part of the code, the dlc and updates and destination install was definitely not part of tinfoil (as tinfoil did not have these capabilities)

    So, what's the best way to get update files for Switch games?

    I'd like to update my XCI's to latest versions, but I dunno how to get the updates for them...

    Aren't using FreeShopNX pretty much guarantee a CDN ban since it's using your own cert?

    It's not using the own cert, since there's a cert packed.
    And also, in the file @Essasetic uploaded is a titlekeys list, which is pretty much illegal here.

    After some testing over 2 weeks, all versions of FTPd that I have messed with have crashed for me in sx os, except for this version by m4xw posted here:

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/ftp-application.506434/page-5#post-8095435

    Something about this ^ compilation is right and no crashes in docked or handheld mode.

    I would understand the "hate/critics" if TX was selling a "clone" product of something that was already free, and taking credits + marketing. But in the end, they're not "just" doing that. (it's their own package)
    For once, until now, i haven't seen "elsewhere" a cart emulation/xci. For that, and it was their selling point, nothing to judge.

    If this Tinfoil-Stealing thing is real, the fact that you can do a bit more (update/dlc), proves that they also worked on it. (not good ethics but not just stealing and selling)

    (I work as a programmer for 20 years now, and sure, open-source/communities are great, but, if you make something that you know, someone could take advantage of it in a commercial way and you'll not be happy about it, don't go around and share your source-code. There's no need to cry about it later.)

    And the selling key in TX product, is that they're making it all-in-one easy package. You can't judge that also.
    Even if there's "stealing" involved... you hardly know the work they have, to bundle all of it, upgrading, fixing.
    The dongle thing.. you can also do that yourself .. but will you? Big part of the things in the world, easy or hard, you can do it with your bare hands... but you end paying someone else to do it for you, and easier your life.

    That's what's happening in this TX drama.
    Just look at this way.. your paying someone else a service to get your "life" easier.
    (Why wasting money in restaurants, when you can buy the same ingredients in a local market for less?)

    (I'm not defending TX or anyone else... just my 5 cent regarding this subject)

    To use NSP files we need LayeredFS (with Pokemon Quest) and LayeredFS = BAN
    But with the "new" installer form the last SX OS 1.4, it's same or "no ban" with this method please ?

    Thanks You

    Ok i tried with many games, not all of nsp updates match the xci version of the games but most of them do work.

    If you load NSP's you don't own = Ban.

    And that's exactly the reason the homebrew channel on the Wii was never open-source until two years ago (and the installer is still closed-source). TT knew that scammers would bundle it and edit out the scam warning.
