    Sorry, just wanted to ask:

    What format should the external HDD be?
    And what files in what folders? (XCI / NSP for tinfoil)

    You should format them to exFat cluster 512K
    /sxos/games
    /sxos/xci
    /sxos/nsp
    /sxos
    /switch/games
    /switch/xci
    /switch/nsp
    /switch

    Woot! I can confirm 2.2.1 correctly scans the subfolders on the USB hard disk so you don't have to put them all on the root folder.

    Would still be nice if there was an explicit 'updates' folder but I put updates in hd:\switch\nsp and all xci in hd:\sxos\xci and all installable nsp games in hd:\sxos\nsp.

    Adding additional scrolling commands down stick jumps a page at a time, up stick jumps back a page would make it easier going through large collections but this is a wonderfup update.

    Kudos to TX!

    Really laid it on think with the Halloween jargon wtf was that about.

    I found this part pretty funny:
    "We can't thank the community enough for continuously identifying small issues and notifying us about them."

    so like my 4tb drive works now and all i gotta test is if it works in portable mode (my 2tb did. ironically my 2tb is heavier so yeah im switching to the 4tbif it does). But as soon as my xci loaded up I started singing to myself. "My baby does the hanky panky..."

    Can I confirm, this is just for .XCI files correct? You still cannot install eShop games to a hard drive?

    No range of thumbnail views for ROM menu?

    Cycling one game at a time is annoying.

    How is stealth different than disabling reports and using 90DNS? Will you still get banned for loading ofw after using only xci loading in stealth? But I assume I'd get banned for installing nsp updates or dlc? What you are saying is compelling me to try sx os.

    I think xci to nsp conversion and xci installer are clever ways getting around the restriction. I still wonder why nobody else made an xci loader.

    I wish their emunand implementation was better.

    Ugh.. having problems with 2.2.1. Mario Kary 8 won't load along with a bunch of others that were working under 2.2.0.

    Have to get to work but will check if there's a pattern.
