Hi, it's time for me to release a quick tool and some Horizon patches.

XCIRepacker

This tool can convert your own XCI dumps into header patched NSPs who can be installed (with the content type patches for FS system module).

Before any explanations:

I'M NOT SUPPORT PIRACY, THIS PATCH AND THIS TOOL ARE FOR INSTALL YOUR OWN GAMECARD DUMP!
THIS PATCH AND THE TOOL ARE PROVIDED AS-IS AND I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE OF ANY DAMAGES!


  1. First you have to dump own your gamecard using nxdumptool by DarkMatterCore to get a XCI dump.
  2. Then you have to convert your XCI dump with XCIRepacker into a header patched NSP file (Usage below).
  3. Install the content type patch for Atmosphère or Hekate (Explanation below).
  4. Install the converted NSP using Goldleaf by XorTroll.
  5. Enjoy...

Tool Usage

  • Code:
    XCIRepacker.exe "PathOfFile.xci"

Content Type Patches installation
(1.0.0 - 8.1.0 | FAT - ExFat)

  • For Atmosphère:
    Put the `Patches\atmosphere` content inside `sdmc:/atmosphere` and reboot your switch.
  • For Hekate:
    Put the `Patches\bootloader` content inside `sdmc:/bootloader` and reboot your switch.

Currently 4NXCI resign all NCA files inside the XCI to change them into the Download type.

The patch remove the content type check in FS to let it install any types.
That's why you need to use my tool to convert the XCI secure partition into a NSP file.

This avoid to resign all NCA (so conversion time is reduced), avoid to use current FS patches and so there's no risk of installing malicious software.
