    As expected, one needs to be online when activating the licence.

    I thought that AutoRCM was exclusive to 1.0.0?

    Guys, get ready to reverse engineer their ROM launcher, so that we can use it on Atmosphere :P

    Yeah but I read somewhere that the RCM mode software enables was exclusive to version 1.0.0.

    only the one released. Every FW (or up to 4.1.0) can go to RCM via deja/damais vu (I think), but those are not realeased yet.

    No word about emunand.

    I guess we won't see that feature.

    I'd say this is semi-untethered, not having to boot into RCM is enough for me tbh.

    They do auto RCM by corrupting your NAND most likely. x.x

    • "Q: How will SX OS work?
      A:
      The SX OS boot file and licenses can soon be retrieved from our easy to use website that will launch shortly. Simply follow instructions and you will be set up in a few minutes."
    Does this mean the SX OS will launch before June? or did i misread it?

    At least one more question remains unanswered... What about title updates? Cartridge dumps are outdated and bugged in most cases. It would be nice if there was a way to install title updates, from Nintendo CDN (like 3ds cfw) or external sorces (like x360 rgh).

    If sleep mode is supported, then that's goos enough for me. Otherwise, that auto RCM mode sounds great!

  17. All this hype and no cold-boot solution is pretty disappointing. Does that mean it cant be done or just not figured out yet? If that's the case, might as well just stick with your jigs and tegrarcm, no homebrew at launch either. You're basically paying 40$ to not use your jig lol, not worth it.

    I wonder how long it will take for the OS to boot from rcm to get pirated.
