    As if yesterday's emuiibo update was not enough, @XorTroll has also released a new version of his popular Nintendo Switch multi-tool and title installer! Goldleaf 0.6's biggest feature highlight is, without any doubt, a complete refactor of its USB install functionality: the old and limited one has been replaced with a fully-featured PC file browser. Instead of just sending a single NSP file over USB to your console, you will now be able to see a list of all the storage devices found on the computer running Goldtree - both internal (HDDs, SSDs, etc.) and external (microSDs, USB drives, ...). From there, you will be able to browse anywhere you like and choose whichever files you want to install!

    Speaking of browsing, the file manager has also received two noteworthy quality of life improvements: you can now set a folder's archive bit easily (useful if your console's microSD has been formatted as FAT32 to make the Switch's OS treat its contents as a single file) as well as bulk install all NSPs found in a directory. Both options work globally so, yes, thanks to the previously mentioned PC browsing feature, bulk USB installs are now available!

    Last, but not least, amiibo dumping is here too. It uses the same format introduced with emuiibo 0.3, making it a breeze to "virtualize" your real figures to use them in games without having to carry them around!

    There have also been other smaller changes, like slightly faster NSP install times, skipping a title's required FW by default unless specifically changed in the config, automatically disabling sleep mode to prevent accidental interruptions and a built-in updater. If you want to know everything included in 0.6, you can read the changelog below:
    EDIT: A bug has been found which affects USB NSP installs with a file size of 4 GB or higher. @XorTroll will work on a fix in 0.6.1 but he's unable to work on it now. As such, users with FAT32 cards are advised to keep using the old version until the fix is released.

    EDIT 2: Goldleaf 0.6.1 has been released, which fixes the aforementioned bug as well as a few other minor issues and crashes.

    I gues on earth.
    Well done. Nice improvements. All I need now is the qlaunch replacement with folders which xortroll teased some time ago. Can't wait for that.

    Goldtree is still hot garbage and for obsolete systems. I don't dislike goldleaf but ancient tinfoil 0.2.1 is still the best for usb installs.

    Xortroll is consistently working for others in this community instead of his own glory. That can't be said about everyone and I commend you for that sir

    I'm impressed that he's stuck with a project this long, without abandoning it like he did with his promising media players.

    After copying the new goldleaf.nro to my switch, the USB installation option didn't appear anymore. Am I missing anything?

    Yea dont like the usb installation option was moved.

    This decreases usability and user experience. You should add it back to the main menu so people can just click one time to usb install or connect to the pc. Dont hide it in a folder.

    "you can use this system with drives inserted in your PC in order to browse or install files from there."
    why not just say install files from your PC over FTP it would make it a lot less confusing

    seriosuly? what the fuck? you know you can FTP over wireless as well right? comms don't make a difference to applications if it's wired or wireless.. that really was a stupid and ignorant comment to make.

    the only stupid and more confusing comment is Goldleaf talking about USB installs - when most people are going to be thinking you can plug in a USB stick or HDD and install from that, just like you can with SX OS.

    Installing from a PC via a USB cable should more accurately be referred to as USB server install.

    I mean. Not really? That mangles the word server to mean something else entirely.
