    Yeah. I'd never advise following a video guide. It gets outdated very quickly and can lead to many problems. The only video I followed of his was to update your switch with ChoirDujourNX (and I've had no problems with it).

    I'm doubtful this would work since the target Switch needs the NAND to verify it belongs to that unit and SXOS needs the NAND (and maybe other unit-specific info?) to verify to the donor Switch. It sounds like a good way to get the NAND bricked.

    I find USB HDD useless now because Tinfoil can easily download games from NUT via FTP, Google drive folder or USB

    has this been confirmed? my sxos switch died and i got a replacement 4.1 out of the box but no license for sxos. i had it maybe 2 weeks and switch died. don't want to pay 30.00 for the new license. maybe if i had it for a few months and it died i wouldn't be so salty but this is crap. i could also understand if i sold the switch or gave it away but its literally a paper weight lol

    Every Switch needs their own sxos license. Yes it sucks, but its probably how they prevent ppl from sharing their product features.

    Mainly cheats and the external drive is nice. That’s about all I saw that was different and a few other small things I can’t remember off the top of my head.
    I did a bunch of cheats for ps4 and Ps3. I just want to relax with this console and mainly for kids and wife. I ended up not playing the ps4 anymore because of it. Too much time finding offsets/values ending up not wanting to play at all
    Plus all of the family saves, only backed up a few.

    If you're doing mainly cheats and you don't mind sacrificing external HDD support. Atmosphere is a good free alternative.

    wouldnt i still have to manually search values then also tittle id's and ect.?

    now another concern this new device is still on 4.1 and not trying to burn any fuses either.

    Just to be 100% clear, "switch b" still needs to be an older, exploitable version, right? I'd hate for someone trying to waste time trying this on a brand new "better" model if it has no chance of working. Or worse, waste money buying a new one thinking they could use this to get sx working on it.

    Of course the newer switch is “hackable”. Did the test and it smashed the stack. Did the manual test with no sd card. Got the QR code

    If you want to create cheats, yes. But Atmosphere works with SX OS cheats and fixes bugs that it has.
