    Don't think I will install the xci. If I'm not mistaken the nsp have the problem that if you remove them you will also remove the dlc and updates of the game, but instead with the xci you can remove the xci only. Sometimes I switch games and I want the dlc/updates to remain there.

    And with their SX tool can't you delete NSP games while leaving the updates\DLC?

    No, the tool disables the installed updates/dlcs. The junk files will remain on SD.

    So is XCI to main menu copying another version on the SD card or does it copy to the sysnand(or emunand)?

    Is there anyone out there who updated from 2.0.1 to this? I heard that on earlier versions your NSP installs would not work - is it the same with this one? Any help shall be greatly appreciated!

    Wait, are you two saying that XCI can be installed free without an SXOS license? Is the only reason to get the SX OS license for XCI mounting?

    It wouldn't matter to opensource users b/c its essentially the same as nsp installing.

    Well I am wondering for SXOS if it can be used for free as well, was wondering if XCI install is free built in feature now or are they locking it down as a licensed feature? Doesn't make sense that they would lock it down if they can freely install an NSP. Just wanted to confirm.

    When you buy a license for the sxos you gain access to the features in future updates as well. You don't need to pay for everything they release. Yes its built in aslong you are on the latest updates

    Yes but you can use SXOS without a license. Without a license you should have access to everything except for XCI Loading / Mounting. Now with this new version did they lock down XCI installing or is it available for users without a license?

    I'm sure its license locked since the sxos is the only way to utilize xci content, but even so its the same thing as nsp installing with or without a license. This is just a convenient update for xci users that are tired of using the sx loader screen. It wouldn't benefit free users b/c they already have nsp installation. What free users really want is xci loading/HDD support well those that want to broaden their options.

    I haven't done anything with my switch yet, what do peoplerecommend: buying sxos, using using free version for homebrew nsps, or using atmosphere or reinx instead?

    Sounds like main advantage of sx os is xci mounting and using an external hard drive for xci correct?

    Being watching from the sidelines since I bought my switch in June to see how things played out.

    Unless you want XCI support and booting from an external drive, atmosphere. If you want those two things SX OS. It's that simple.

    Okami HD was released physically in Japan and has English language, I'm pretty sure there is a genuine XCI. Also there's this.
