Title pretty much self explanatory. HB Shop is going to be no longer with us as of the beginning of October and that was my only way to update my games on SXOS. Is there a replacement or any other way of updating my games other than downloading them elsewhere?

There are loads of shops available in the wild. They are keeping the hbg drive so it shouldn’t be a problem for any other shops. Most of them have fully backed the drive up anyway..

I believe it's okay to say the names of other Tinfoil shops. Somebody remove this post if it's not. Off the top of my head, there are:
  1. JITS
  2. Party Shop
  3. Under Shop
  4. Chaos Shop
And probably others.

Thanks, this basically answers my question.

Couldn't you just make your own Google Drive? That's what the shops are in the end, right?

Are there steps on how to set this up?

Thanks

Does this mean tinfoil is shutting down too or does HBG Shop just act as an interface/front end?
Neither. Hbg is only a game source that you can add to tinfoil. It is not part of tinfoil, it does not come included in tinfoil, is not a frontend etc.

Ive heard partyshop is dead but i havent tried it to confirm. Funny how many dead shops ive heard people recommend in the last few days, everything from nxshop to carrotshop to milkinthebox, never thought id hear that one again. Undershop and the little spinoff are gonna be at quota 24/7 with their new traffic.
