    @friedkeenan is developing Tuphlos with the help of the creator of nxMTP
    he made a screenshot of his WIP work

    Just to be clear, this is very, very WIP. Right now I have my Switch telling my laptop that the SD card has 100 bytes max, has 50 bytes free, and that it has no files on it, so yeah

    EDIT: I also plan to make this into an NRO + a sysmodule, like how nxsh is so that you can either just have MTP on when you explicitly want it on, or all the time, even after your Switch has an error, which in particular MTP could be handy

    Great news. nxmtp is one of the most useful homebrews out there.

    LOVE to see it! nxMTP was awesome when it works and a #1 important app. Unfortunately it will randomly not work for me (Mac) and was never fixed.

    See my post, check for PTPCamera.

    Also check that usb 3.0 isn't forced in atmosphere's system_settings.ini, if you use atmosphere. It's not on by default any more, but it was at one point.

    YOU DA MAN!! Who'd have thought! But it makes sense. Mac may take over a media device with its picture transfer tool. Thank you.

    This is great. I've been using nxMTP almost on a daily basis and while it's working swell on small files, it crashes when copying bigger files (maybe 4gb and above?). I hope this fixes that. Also looking forward for this sysmodule. :bow:

    The 4 GB limit is imposed by MTP itself.

    bummer. Then nxMTP has no issue after all but still a bummer.

    Well, I think MTP has a way of sending >4GB files, but it's not as simple as sending <=4GB files. I haven't gotten around to reading in detail the protocol for it (I'll cross that bridge when it comes), so I might be wrong

    Good objection. After reading the MTP spec again, there seems to be way.

    So basically you would have to manage the transfer yourself. I would be curious to see how stable that would be in the end.

    I got a little burnt out. I haven't abandoned the project, but at the moment I'd rather watch Wizards of Waverly Place than work on Tuphlos
