    Same here, nothing at all has worked. I was hoping they would be applied before booting to avoid the slowdown issue that occurs after going into the album the standard way.

    Yup you nailed it even HBG has cheats support so its nothing really new if you had been using it. But atleast that gives us more apps with cheats.

    Uuuuu
    I compressed a lot: Bytes before: 1.512.723.338.034, bytes after 1.130.554.058.783
    Saving something like 25%.

    Open the app, highlight a game and select info, and then there is a button command at the bottom for cheats. You turn them on / off as you please.

    I have done that but they don't work in game. No such problem doing it through the sxos cheats menu.

    Does it detect split .xci??

    Installer is great for mounting ROMs as album is slow but installer doesn't recognise split xci

    The new SXOS supports normal horizon split XCI's. SX Installer will auto split the files if you try to copy+paste a 4gb+ file to your SD card.

    I pop my sdcard into my pc and copy and paste ROMs. What method are you meaning to have TXOS auto detect and split? FTP?

    I think it's the same homebrew but biased according to what it is compiled for

    it auto splits files above 0xFFFF0000 size when pasting to SD in the file browser. Works on any source tinfoil can read in the file browser. USB HDD has an issue where it does not like to list files, however if you mess with it it will list then you can copy from there.

    But what about XCZ (which seem to be compressed XCIs I guess?) that I store on an HDD to mount and play them in SX OS? They would need longer loading times I assume?

    Cheats activation on sx os is not perfect (yet)
    But here is a set of steps you can follow to get them working.

    Start your game then press the Home button
    go into sx installer
    find your game
    press Y
    press Y again
    activate your cheat
    exit sx installer and enter sx os menu
    go to cheats
    enable your cheat(s)
    return to game

    As this is the first iteration of the feature, these extra steps are necessary currently. But it works. This may be improved in the future. :)

    How do you use the cheats function?
    is it different for the one in the main menu? or it download the cheats automatically?
