    I gues on earth.
    That's not how it works. Updates are always NSPs and you can't update XCI the file itself. XCIs are always outdated no matter what. Same goes for bare NSPs.

    You need to download then install their respective updates in .NSP format using a title installer such as Rommenu (built into SX OS), DevMenu (copyrighted), or Tinfoil (recommended homebrew app).

    If you could also submit a ban report now that you're banned, that would be appreciated: https://gbatemp.net/threads/nintendo-switch-banning-hub-warning.508710/

    you're not supposed to download the games in NSP format. Just download the updates in NSP Format and install these. Updates still need to be installed to either SD or NAND either way.

    Updates and DLCs also don't load from SD card. They have to be installed.

    Updates and DCLs have to be installed unlike XCIs, which can be directly loaded. And you can play games without updating them (if the switch allows it).

    Question: Do you need 2TBs of games at the same time? Nope. Max like 10 games at the same time.

    have not tried it yet but I did read somewhere on this site that you can use xci builder or NUT BC to build a xci with the update in it, by first extracting the nsp update to nca's and the xci to nca's and then build a xci from them.. maybe someone can confirm this ?

    Seems like nobody cares about this... PEOPLE think about the CONVENIENCE of having a single file that you know its UP TO DATE!! Mario Kart 8 Deluxe[1.7.0].XCI would be great, no need to install NSP and get in trouble for installing NSP.

    EDIT:
    Not posible, i tried like a MILLION TIMES to do that with no luck.

    You can't load an update or DLC as an .XCI, only .NSP can do this hence why its superior. The only ways to update a .XCI without .NSP is by going online with your console.

    what he was suggesting was to bundle the NCAs for the updates into the XCI file. I think it's possible, just like how latest zelda cart already has 1.5.0 update in it, but don't know how to do that

    I was thinking that was how you can make your own version of the rev001/rev002 carts (e.g. Super Mario Odyssey rev001 carts/XCI have the v1.1 update built-in, and the rev002 carts have v1.2 built-in [I don't think XCIs for rev002 exist yet]).

    But then...

    ...unless he was doing something wrong (or there is an extra step you have to do), then I guess only Nintendo can do that (include updates in carts).

    And I really thought including the update NCAs in the rebuilt XCI would work too...

    Yeah most likely I am doing something wrong! But nobody here wants to help with that :/ I tried with layeredFS and XCI Builder but I gave up!

    But you've successfully built working a XCI from an NSP-only game, right?
    I mean, if you can do that, I'd think you aren't doing anything wrong (maybe just an extra missing step then)

    Oh really? My only source of release info is NSWDB :P
    We are talking about the same game right? (SMO, and not BotW)?
