NS-Usbloader which I posted a few posts above this has the driver included with it.
Sir I try use many homebrew or installer move something like cheat.txt file from USB via charging port to switch 's SD card(emu nand). but the system just won't let me do that

So I must take out sd card from switch everytime use a laptop or android phone place all the file to this SD card then push back to switch....

Install game can be done when use USB via charging port ... You put nsp nsz on USB root.
Then install them to SD card emu nand.

But you can't copy any other file like cheat.txt or mp4/mp3 etc from USB to switch's SD card?

This is hassle.

Just use any ftp software to do that, SXOS and Atmosphere have the ability to both send and receive this way.

This is great! Installing from USB HDD is way better than doing it over the network or SD card. I have my stuff backed up to an external drive anyway, so it's touch and go.

Sorry for bump ... Sir

now I understand I can set android ftp server




But do this work when use Android hotspot? I got many android tablet

They do not need a Sim card for create hotspot .... so there's no internet access at all


This way you won't get banned.

This way I don't need take out SD card from switch console everytime


I mean you set switch console connect to your android hotspot

Then install game via hotspot from your android tablet's 512 gb SD card root nsp nsz?

I put nsz nsp on android phone SD card root


Is it going to work well?

Sx os 10-11.0



One thing that bother me when we use ftp on switch install game


First it will copy entire nsp nsz to switch's sd card or not?


I want directly install game via hotspot ... not ftp copy nsp nsz to switch first...


Thanks you again...

OK if I enable android tablet mtp and use otg cable connect this tablet to switch (also use mtp homebrew)

Can switch read everything on my tablet ' s SD card?!

This is magic if it do work

I mean android tablet connect with switch via "type-c micro sd etc" all in one otg cable...

I use this https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33039671929.html

Probably not, since that would require the Switch to read the contents of your tablet which is in MTP mode, and AFAIK the MTP-related homebrew out there is intended to put the Switch itself in MTP mode to be read/written to by a PC.


I wouldn't use that if I were you. At that low price and coming from China, it's more likely to fry your SD cards and USB devices than it is to read them correctly.

I try everything with no internet access between switch and android tablet hotspot


The stupid switch console always shut down WiFi after around 30 seconds


It detected no Internet then disconnect from android hotspot


I can't move large file like nsp or nsz


Just some 1-20 mb nro file etc


This is for ftp situation


For switch mtp homebrew it always ask internet access




I guess my only chance is buy a $100 windows 8/10 tablet


This way I can install game from PC without internet and problem


I just can't take out my android tablets SD card then use "type-c/ micro sd /usb" three in one drive install game via switch's charging port now.


If you often take out SD card it will damage


In the end it can't be read. Hassle.

Not if you're careful. I've never damaged an SD or microSD card from inserting or removing it from slots, card readers, etc.

Instead of flash drives, do you have an external hard drive or external SSD? I use TinWoo with a Seagate Backup Plus drive for installing games and ftpd to manage smaller files, which you said you can do as well. It's not an all-in-one solution, but it works.

The good thing about these drives is that I can just plug them into one of the dock's USB ports and I don't need a separate cable to power it from a socket like some external drives. It has to be the dock, though. I could never get it to work plugging it straight into the Switch's USB-C port.

Weird some android system can access switch via ns-usbloader-mobie

Like samsung tab s4 s6 s7
Other are not


Anyway I give up

Take out SD card from tablet use "type-c/ micro sd /usb" three in one drive install everything via charging port...


I still can not place cheat file txt and 60 fps patch to switch's SD card emu nand

I can't access sd card's switch folder via any homebrew

So I must take out switch's SD card like I did on my tablet too

Plug Switch ' s SD card to android tablet for place cheat / 60 fps file....

Repeat and repeat

Suck...

This might not be the fastest solution, but if it works it works. How often are you installing new games, anyway?

I can't access sd card's switch folder via any homebrew

Have you tried ftpd for copying the files through an FTP client and NX-Shell for accessing the /switch folder on your SD card? They both work fine for me.

You're a real Debbie Downer, did you know that?

Anyway, it seems I can't help you any further. Good luck with the tedious, awful pit of suffering that is having a modern games console hacked to do a million awesome things and a whole library of games for free.

Thanks for help


I create this post because I want a tools / homebrew move anything around emu nand just use switch only


I don't like touch any PC and android phone/ tablet for hack switch thing


When i open Tinfoil it won't let me access "Emutendo " "sx os" folder on sd cards emu nand

Other homebrew like sx installer goldleaf they all unable to access "Emutendo " "sx os" folder on sd cards emu nand

If I upload txt / 60 fps cheat file use android ftp to switch

These file will be send on switch's sd card root

You can't send them to "sx os" folder or something else
I think it blocked

If you want cheat file work you must put them in " sx os" folder


The switch itself can't move any file from SD card root to "Emutendo " " sx os" folder too
It just blocked

So I must take out SD card from switch then plug to android tablet put everything I need to this SD card.


is there any homebrew can read cheat txt file from SD card emunand root?

This way I can use android ftp upload cheat txt file to switch's SD card root

Not in "sxos" folder which is unaccessible....
Then i can enable cheat code without take out SD card from switch just for config / set this whole thing....

Cheats go in root/sxos/titles.
There's no need to go into emutendo.
All that folder is for is storing the installed game files and your nand files.

So you can only access the sxos folder from your PC, right? Have you tried changing the /sxos folder permissions in Windows? It might be set to read-only for some reason. I don't remember how user permissions work in FAT32 but honestly that's all I can think of at this time.

Oh yes

Team sx blocked user use switch access their system folder

If your emunand set under sx os you can't browse this " sx os " folder by any homebrew

I still not yet try rename the "sx os" under sx os cfw

I bet it blocked or when you rename the folder it will cause cfw system crash.

That's why you can use other cfw like ams browse sx os folder

Sucks. Anyway I can work around all the issues by take out SD card from switch.

Yes install game via charging port

Remember put all the nsz nsp on root

Type-c /micro sd / tf card / usb all in one drive

Get one from amazon or aliexpress

Then use TinWoo USB HDD installer

You can use TinWoo with a flash drive or external hard drive. Or you can connect the Switch to your PC and use ns-usbloader with Goldleaf or Nut with Tinfoil. There's others, too. I prefer the TinWoo method, personally. I was gonna back stuff up anyways.

Yes, its called USB installation. But you will need a program on your computer to install the .NSP file. I recommend using NS-USBLoader.
