Hello,

While I was downloading games from Tinfoil today I noticed that there was an option after you pick the game that you want by pressing the Y button and some games would have cheats associated with the game. So I downloaded the game with the cheats (or so I thought) only to find out the these cheats are for use with SX OS. So I did a little digging and I came accross this
https://github.com/coniventia/tinfoilmod-releases/releases. I was wondering if this still works. I read the read me and I don't quite under stand it

TinfoilMod 0.12.0 for Tinfoil 5.00

A Tinfoil 5.00 mod, for advanced users.
-- Features:
- Allows unlocking of features normally exclusive to SX OS license owners
- Allows unlocking ReiNX/SX-specific features
- Tinfoil version spoofing
- Can force Applet mode

Please note: Theme whitelist bypassing and spoofing features have been removed.

Make sure you have the proper configuration and files, if using Atmosphere, as it may cause Tinfoil to crash.
Warning: If using Atmosphere, please be careful of using the Firmware tab, as that may brick your device.

Configuration is located at "sdmc:/switch/tinfoil/mod_config.ini".

-- Please note:
The Device!Tag value needs to be modified to a device-specific value for some parts of the configuration to be read. This value can be found in the Console tab, when running TinfoilMod.
This is meant to prevent malicious pre-baked configuration files.

-- Example configuration:
```
[Device]
Tag = deadbeef

[CFW]
FakeTxLicense = True
FakeRnx = False
FakeTx = True

[Telemetry]
; Disables the Tinfoil.io telemetry thread (will also disable most Tinfoil.io features). Needs Device!Tag to be set.
DisableTinfoilIo = False

[UI]
; Removes the About tab. Needs Device!Tag to be set.
NoAboutTab = False
; This value disables the Firmware tab when set to True.
NoFirmwareTab = False

[Misc]
; Spoofs the Tinfoil version sent to the locations. Remove to use actual version.
FakeSentVersion = 5.00
; Forces Applet mode under Tinfoil, even when running as application.
AppletOverride = True
; This overrides the cheat folder path to the given value. Useful when spoofing CFW.
CheatFolderPath = sdmc:/switch/titles/%016lX/cheats
```

-- Credits:
- blawar for the original DZ/Tinfoil
- Denn (German translation)
- Danonino (Spanish-es_ES translation)
- Mz. (Spanish-es_MX translation)
- tiliarou (corrections in the French translation)
- ma1phur (Korean-ko_KR translation)
- dbz (Portuguese-pt_BR translation)

-- Releases: https://github.com/coniventia/tinfoilmod-releases/releases

So I am wondering if there is anyone that can make sense out of this. Thanks

2019 lol, that's super old.
However you don't need the cheat feature of Tinfoil.
Get yourself EdiZon which can download cheats on its own now. Nonetheless I use the "Switch All in One Updater" to get all latest cheats for all my currently installed games automatically.

We just havent updated the MOTD. Ignore it for the time being.

On the topic of tinfoilmod, its long dead. The dev stopped development on it and then left the scene entirely after he was doxxed by a certain 3 letter group. You all know the one i mean.

Thanks for your expert opinion. Nice to see someone who really has insight on the situation weighing in here.

Thank you!
Dont thank me, i didnt enable it :) Anyway now i believe every feature is available on atmosphere (minus xci loading which is obviously dependent on the cfw and therefore not possible to enable) so tinfoilmod is no longer necessary.

OK, well thanks for bringing it to my attention :)

It wasn't blarwar was it?
It was indeed blawar. He told me the new version enables icons and https over nut. Havent tested it myself. Also oauth is currently enabled globally. So I believe thats everything, since cheats and mtp were already enabled in a previous version.
