    How does Qforegroundviewer work? I've eneabled it in the ulaunch settings, but it always says: "Unable to connect" when i try to run it.

    Is your cable only for charging or can it be used for data transfer? Connect the console to the pc, and then start the viewer.

    This looks so good especially with some of the custom themes people are putting on your Discord. Got a Majora's Mask themed one with music and everything. Awesome job and thank you!

    Can there be a feature to hide apps/remove that homebrew button in the middle? I have a kid that uses my switch and he gets curious.

    Nope, data transfer too. Doesn't work anyway, does it conflict with sysdvr?

    Why do you say SX OS works? that's not true.. well it boots.. but it doesn't really work.

    Yes. Because metacritic isn't always right. Sometimes "shit" games are still enjoyable. It is an indication at best.

    I'm not sure what I might have done wrong, but I copied the titles folder and nothing has changed. I don't have a theme active, but I'm using Kosmos 14.2 on 9.0.1.

    Doesn't kosmos give loads of sysmodules. Maybe you have to many and that's why it's not starting. I use atmosphere and have it running on 9.0

    You cannot (for now)
    From the GitHub:

    List of not (yet) implemented HOME menu features:

    • Controller managing

    • Album

    How is it better than Goldleaf if both projects have different approach?

    Not sure if this is the OFFICIAL way to install it but I'm using atmosphere too (through Kosmos).

    All I did was download the Ulaunch zip file from github, decompress it, open up the folfers until I got to a folder called "Titles". Then on my SD card, I opened the atmosphere folder and just copied the titles folder into the atmosphere folder.

    I'm really digging it.
    I have some suggestions.
    Can you show when games require game cards and if one is inserted? Similar to the official home menu.
    Can you also allow users to select other parts of the screen with the controller? I am thinking of when I am in docked mode and I want to select "homebrew" etc.
    I also can't seem to work out how to pair new controllers/change controller order, etc, like OFW.
    Also I know it's still in development, but if it ran a little faster, that would be nice too.

    Just my feedback. I am really happy someone has implemented something like this, and I love it!
