    Nothing major today from TX, but still nice to see continued support for those without dongles!
    SXTOOLS11.

    Today, we were informed that TX silently pushed out finally a minor update to their SX TOOLS app, which is designed as an easy way to launch their SX OS using just your Android Phone when its tethered via a USB cable to your Nintendo Switch console, so check out the changes in their v1.1 update released below:
    That's all for today, but please stay tuned for more exciting news! :)

    A TX-related update that isn't front paged? Its time to revolt against GBATemp and their anti-TX sentiments!

    Sadly it doesn't work for my friend neither 1.0 or 1.1 and he doesnt have anything to send the payload.

    Does anyone discovered already how to fix this on android?

    His tablet has OTG support and its on android 8 something, but after sending the payload the console just gets black but it gets out of RCM so it sends something but not the full successful payload.

    Have to press power button for a few time for the console to shutdown as its like frozen... I tested his tablet on both his 8.01 sysnand and 8.01 emunand and my switch sysnand 3.02 and 6.2 emunand with old stable SX OS release and both just get black after sending the payload with his tablet...

    With my Sonny Xperia Z2 it works fine on both consoles and loads into emunand (and the cables used were the same, its my OTG cable + my USB C cable...).

    ps: Does anyone know if its something on android 8 that can be activated on the developer options to fix or is it like something like missing the "android.hardware.usb.host.xml" file on the android system?

    Edit: I just checked his tablet and indeed doesn't have USB host mod permission, do you guys know if just adding it would fix the payload problem??? But it seems he doesn't want to root it anyway so I can't add the permission file...

    How many different payloads have you tried to send? If it's sending something just not the right thing then it's the payload file id imagine.

    Are you using the newest payload with the newest cfw

    Its the default SX OS payload... I tried sending the file to his tablet via ADB, but when using "ADB remount" it asks for root so I can't push the file into the tablet... Tried Dr.fone root which lot of ppl say its good, but it literally took many time and kinda got stucked to 96% and was already too late so I just cancelled that crap...

    I think most of those devices that have OTG support but can't inject the payload are most likely because of missing the "android.hardware.usb.host.xml" file on the android.

    Which means that the browser based payload launcher site won't work for you either. Bummer

    but then again, does everything SX related deserve a promotion? Being just a minor update to this app, pretty much that's all it. Thus this should be kept here as is.

    Homeboy was never suggesting otherwise. Re read it slowly and ponder good intentions for a moment in the language used and so on
