TX Presents SX OS v2.9.2 Beta - With Improved Stealth Mode and More!

Another day, another SX OS update! Today, Team-Xecuter released their SX OS v2.9.2 beta.

Good news, we been informed that TX has finally released v2.9.2 and it contains some new features, and also it looks this will soon be their 'STABLE' release and they report they are hard at work on SX OS v3.0.0 so we have alot to look forward to enjoy soon! Oh'yeah, it also fully supports the latest Nintendo Switch firmware v9.0.1 of course :)
  • Local Multiplayer over the internet (LAN play) is working again.
    Somewhere down the line we introduced a regression in functionality causing local multiplayer emulation to be broken and/or out of sync with the current lan-play implementation. This has been addressed and should work correctly again.
  • Extended scope of Stealth Mode
    Recently it has come to our attention that there was claims floating around about stealth mode being broken on SX OS v2.9+. We investigated these claims and are happy to let you know this is completely wrong. Stealth Mode behaved exactly the same like it always did. Nonetheless, we took this feedback/rumour as an opportunity to further tighten down on the stealthiness. From now you cannot start the eShop application if you have stealth mode enabled. Furthermore all error reporting and telemetry has been neutered. That means errors that are generated while using SX OS that might get you "flagged" won't be queued up for delivery when you boot into OFW anymore either!
  • Improved XCI game compatibility
    In our last update we already addressed some compatibility issues with re-packed XCI images, yet some XCI files were still not playable. We investigated this issue and as it turns out there are certain tools around (older versions of 'NSC Builder' for example) that generate bogus metadata for the (encrypted) 'Gamecard Info' that is part of the XCI header. Our gamecart emulation now detects these bad images and fixes them. If you want your XCI images to be future proof; please be careful with whatever post-processing you apply to XCI files though, we can't clean up after other people's mistakes indefinitely!
  • Rebooting SX OS
    If you select "restart" now from the power options menu you will actually reboot into SX OS. There is no need to replug your SX Pro dongle or send a payload from your computer when doing so. Additionally, if an error occurs you can also reboot into SX OS by simply pressing the power button. Neat!

They report this will be their final v2.x release as they are moving forward to a big v3.0 release with it having many suggestions they have received over the last few months from their valued SX OS users, so in the meantime grab their v2.9.2 release from their website.

Solid update, this seems to have squished many bugs. Aside from the official notes it also fixes error 2168-0002 when exiting album with "B" button and/or launching homebrew while docked. Glad to hear custom XCI loading is back and that stealth mode has been improved further. Now we just need to see if this resolves the issue of GC fuse burn and also if incognito will install. People were also reporting issues using cheats while running XCIs off of an SSD/HDD. If anyone could test these bugs and report back that would be great! ^_^

Interesting, I used SX OS for a while when it had emuMMC, but I switched over to Atmosphere pretty quickly lol. I don't see anything wrong with the people that use SX OS or people that support Tx. I don't support them myself for the shady things they've done before, but it is still a useful piece of software.

you literally contradict yourself. You used SX OS for a while (so you had to have purchased it), so you have supported them already.. doesn't matter if you never use your SX OS licence again.

Off topic. You do not need a license to use sxos, just the XCI loading. A lot of people forget this.

On topic great to see they are faster with their fixes ;P

I meant more of, I don't support the actions they do now, when I bought the license, I wasn't as well informed as I am now. They do still make useful software though.

I hope this update makes the Switch boot into SXOS when you power it off and put it in the dock. I forgot the Switch powers on when you put it back in the dock, so mine booted into OFW and downloaded the 9.0 update. I have to update to 9.0 now to get rid of that dang update nag. Hopefully, most of the bugs have been worked out.

Edit: I just realized I asked if this had cold booting. Whoops. Turns out this "new" feature is just the "reboot to payload with error support" built into SXOS. Cold booting would be nice if it was implemented into SXOS 3.0.

To remedy this: On OFW, boot into maintenance mode, then reboot, and it should clear that 9.0 update notice nag. Once it's cleared, use 90dns settings for your wifi connection on the settings menu, and you shouldn't have to worry about that again if your switch happens to accidentally boot into OFW in the future.

Just to clarify, does this update fix Stealth Mode in the UK? Because people pointed out it doesn't work because of the TX website blockade in the UK.

"Our gamecart emulation now detects these bad images and fixes them."

Can't wait to learn more. Used to dump my own carts, but got lazy and just download them built-in updates. Surely need to fix some.
