    Honest questions.
    Why would you want / need XCI loading? othern than NSP loading?

    There are two reasons people usually say:
    1. Drag and drop convenience, even though installing NSP files over USB is essentially the same thing.
    2. Mitigating ban risk, even though XCI files also carry ban risk.

    Only real reason is if you have a small SD card and can only fit a few games on there and want to drag and drop to change them

    not having to install or uninstall it, just copy and paste, the whole game is in 1 file not a directory. easy to se whats you've got stored on your SD card, then again I'm just a average user :D

    One can install NSP files to the SD storage using a USB connection. It can work similarly to what you're describing.

    Managed to get @Escobar69xxx on Atmosphere with no problems. Converted the Hekate payload to boot.dat to use with a SX Pro. Will likely make a thread soon enough showing people how to convert (if they wish to do so).

    I've learnt quite a bit from this. Thanks for giving me something productive to do. :)

    I have no problem with 7.01 and emunand on 6.02 using SX OS. Play Fortnite on 7.01 and no problem with XCI or NSP loading on 6.02. No AutoRCM, SX OS pro dongle with 2.5.3

    no its not the same, i don't want a game installed in a sub directory, i'd rather have a image file i can easily copy and paste, and also delete easily without using a util

    If a game i want to download is in XCi and NSP format, i still go for the XCI version

    Drag and drop , everything in a single XCI. Less risk for ban.

    with SX OS you can have the big titles aka 12GB+ as XCi on external usb stick & leave the internal sd card no matter how big it is for the most played titles. i was ignorant just like you until i decided to go for SX OS in 2019 & then i knew why people recommend it.

    Again, if anybody wants help converting from SX OS to Atmosphere don't hesitate to contact me (whilst I get a friendly tutorial cooked up).

    If you want to install/reinstall a game, install the NSP file over USB. If you don't want the game, delete it using the Switch's system settings. If that's too hard, SX OS might have been the right choice for you.

    USB installations of NSP files are analogous to "drag and drop," and XCI files still carry a ban risk.

    If docked USB support was worth the price tag for you, great. It's a good thing you bought SX OS. For the average user, that's probably not worth the price tag, especially given the anchored nature of it.

    When you waste 30 dollars on a piece of useless software and try to justify it.

    we're average users, 250,000+ of us , if we are not, what are we?

    and yes SX was the right choice for me and the other 250,000+

    well i take it you never have tired using a XCI file, not having to install and then un-install a game saves me time and is easier. sure I install NSP's when i have to , but I would rather not use them at all.

    Not quite 250,000. Used to be one of those users and I learnt it wasn't the right choice for me.

    I can’t believe how pathetic the bickering on both sides has become on this thread.
    So much for our nice community.
    Some wasting hours of their days on these forums defending A or TX like they’ve got shares in them or something, unbelievable.

    without sxos i dont think TX have anything profitable, so i would like to think they would have there heads down working to get a 7.0+ cfw out there, reality is if they dont continue to support it then they will not have a business or income at all. what are they going to do? sell me Jtag chips for xbox 360.

    personally i run kosmos and would find it funny if tx did drop away but reality is too many people invested into it and well just look at this thread, in 12 months time if theres no updates from tx then the fanbois will still be telling us how awesome xci and usb loading is, oh not to mention there emunand still sitting at 6.2

    surely tx cant just stop supporting there product. there business would be a gonner

    the 250,000 figure was a couple of months ago, so it's still 250,000+ :wink:
