    Nintendo works for my dad
    Sort of. If an .xci was available. But for eshop exclusive content this is not the case. So my question still stands: Can NSP content also be installed to USB or can it only be installed from it?

    I am pretty much exclusively using the device in handheld mode, I also wonder if we can connect a USB device directly to the switch unit, bypassing the dock (There's tons of USB thumb drives with a USB Type C connector)

    I'd like confirmation of this too. The release statement is very ambiguous.

    Another amazing update. What can they add now? I think they already covered the most important things.

    a friendly way to play online (LAN), implement retroarch optimization and I guess that's it.

    I wonder if load XCI or install NSP content from there directly is meant to be read as installed NSP content?

    But we can convert Most (if not all) nsp to XCI already, even e-shop exclusives. Is there any benefit other than maybe load times?

    Man, this just gets better and better - the best £20 I've spent! I bet all these TX haters are starting to wish they had just paid for a licence now :-)....

    I hope TX fix the bug in spilt game card 2 xci files (when using fat32) - where the icons don't display. That's my only gripe with sx os so far, but all in all it's freaking awesome.
