    I know nobody has a crystal ball (or a uncle working there), but...
    Do you guys think a stable release supporting 8.0.0/8.0.1 will take a while? I don't have much insight in the release history of SX OS.
    As a follow-up, are the SX OS beta releases considered generally safe?

    The one thing you missed is being able to grab game updates directly from Nintendo with XCIs. Big hassle saver.

    If SX implemented overclocking it'd indisputably be better than CFW. I'm sticking with SX for now to avoid a ban (so I can grab the aforementioned updates) but it sucks to know my games could be performing / looking much better with an overclock.

    I did not know about this difference between XCI and NSP.
    So with XCI (I suppose through the Stealth mode in SX OS) we can still install updates via Nintendo servers (if not banned of course)? Can the XCI be installed, or needs to stay as it is in the SD card?

    No we assume that when you use an XCI it behaves like a real cartridge. So when you reboot in stock firmware and it appears to be like any cartridge game you played and you can update it the same way and it will raise no flag.
    If you install it, it is then exactly like an nsp and a big flag for ban. Of course if you're already banned, one or the other doesn't matter.

    The key word here is "assume" as we don't really know for sure. I only used XCI, no homebrew, and updated my "xci" games through stock firmware and I'm still not ban but that's only me and I won't say it is safe as we really don't know.

    Perhaps I'm missing something.
    How can the OFW see the XCI in the SD card? Shouldn't this be something for which a homebrew is required?

    Autorcm it seems it's still broken. I can boot fine into 7.0.1 emunand but if I choose 8.1 sysnand it gives me blackscreen.
    Someone else with this problem?

    wdym. I’ve been playing online with atmosphere for about a year and haven’t been banned

    to this date they haven’t discovered a single exploit on Switch, I somehow don’t think that’ll change

    I doubt it has to do with AutoRCM, problem is probably your NAND.

    I have the same issue, when AutoRCM is enabled I cant boot stock firmware, when its disabled I can. SXOS works regardless though.

    What could it be? Maybe recreate the emunand? It was working fine on 7.0.1 sysnand.

    Should check the hekate_ipl if you guys are using kosmos file pack, I am loading mine through Hekate then SX_OS, and Sysnand work fine, even though my sysnand is on a much lower firmware.

    Just use the beta. They're generally pretty stable.

    i just updated OFW and CFW to 8.0.1 when i press to boot OFW throught launch menu with autorcm installed it doesnt boot. Could anyone explain me what happens?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Its caused by the diference of efuses burned, you need to run the same version of firmware, thats how i solved it in the past but now its broken i have the same problem


    You can update directly to 8.0.1 :)
