    TX is back with a major update to your favorite SX Installer app.
    And with the release of v2.0.0 that means a lot of very nice new features.

    SXInstaller200.

    It has been a while since SX Installer was updated, but earlier today TX released v2.0.0 which brings with it a number of nice improvements as you can see in their changelog below, and one of the amazing new features is that you can now upgrade and downgrade your Switch firmware with ease and safety, as simple as installing a NSP game on your Switch!
    That's all for today. Stay tuned!

    Thanks, all those unaware kids need to be reminded TX still exists and brings money to this lovely website! Nevermind this is essentially a proprietary not-so-tested alternative/shameless copy to a perfectly fine free software.

    So, what happens if you've updated normally, from 2.3, onward, over time and are now sitting at 8.whatever? Burnt fuses and such. Does this make downgrading impossible? And if downgrading works, can we do the coldbooting?

    Dude, stfu with this nonsense. Seriously.

    So back to my initial question. How does downgrading work for those of us who have burnt fuses? Thank you!

    Frankly i am a little concerned about this newly introduced update/downgrade feature.
    They ought to at least provide written information stating about the required fuses to run a given firmare.
    "Install any firnware with ease just like you would a NSP" That's a tad misleading and might stir up confusion among those who aren't familiar with these stuff, it would have one believe that downgrading/upgrading is a piece of cake and poses no risks which clearly does.
    They should have been more elaborate on that part.


    By the by, i like their UI!.

    That's what I was thinking! So I wonder; could it be somehow "another" way this works? They said "with ease", and I'm really a little conflicted right now due to the fact that they decided upon not placing any more information into it. That concerns me a tad.

    But you cannot, its impossible i don't want to get technical.
    The only way to bypass would be to change the whole switch.

    Hm now when you think about it.
    They could prevent fuses from getting burnt by autoRCM or something of that manner.

    Some people don't want to enable AutoRCM though...
    Maybe they replaced the switch bootloader :P

    Interesting. If this is the case, they shouldn't have put it as lackadaisical as they had. I'm curious to see peoples' results from this.
