Nintendo Switch Stuck At 'JoyCon' Logo With SX Core

It turns out most users exhibiting these symptoms have used METAL (or) SHARP (or) LARGE tools to remove the CPU shield, and in doing so, they have damaged either or both the two small caps located just outside of the shield area. (see pic below)

The shield needs to be removed carefully using plastic or small tools and the installer needs to start on the other side where there are no nearby components which could be easily damaged.

The capacitors in question should look solid and untouched like this picture below:

SX_Stuck_JoyCon

These two caps are located in the same spot on both the (v1) 'erista' and (v2) 'mariko' motherboards.

Resoldering these two caps back in place, or replacing them with a similar SMD 0.1uf 10v 0201 part will solve all your issues from getting stuck at the 'JoyCon' logo. It is recommended to get a professional installer to do the job for you, if you don't have the correct tools to complete your SX Core installation successfully.

That's all today, and remember if you have any technical support issues with our products, please contact our tech staff at tech @ xecuter . com or reach out to our very helpful TX Community of fellow users on our TX Chat Server. 🙂

SX OS v3.0.3 Beta and SX Core/Lite Flasher Application Announcement

We are back with a minor (yet important!) update for SX OS, as well as an PC utility for updating your SX Core/Lite firmware over USB. The latter is required for people who ran tools that were not designed for their Switch console. One example is the popular `Choi Du Jour NX`, which people use to upgrade/downgrade their firmware. This tool was designed for classic erista/rcm consoles, and as such is dangerous to use on mariko consoles.

SXCore

That said, lets have a look at the official changelog:

  • SX Core/Lite firmware v1.3
    SX Core/Lite users will be prompted to install a firmware update upon first launch of SX OS 3.0.3. This is a mandatory update that improves the stability of SX Core/Lite. It also adds hardening against accidental bricks that were caused by running tools designed for Erista/RCM consoles on. People who are unable to run SX OS v3.0.3 because they bricked their consoles are advised to run the standalone USB updater application.
  • New functionality added to SX Core menu
    The SX Core menu in the SX OS boot menu has been enriched with some new functionality for advanced users:

    • Cleanup:
      Will remove any trace of SX Core/Lite on your NAND.
    • Genuine Boot:
      Boot straight into original firmware without going through the typical SX OS bootchain. This is *different* from using the regular boot original firmware functionality, for example you won't be protected from getting your fuses burnt. Only use when you know what you are doing!
  • Minor stability improvements
    You know the drill! Under the hood we're always changing things, to increase both stability and performance of your beloved SX OS.

Both SX OS 3.0.3 as well as the `SX Flasher` application (Currently only for Windows, if there is enough demand we will consider releasing ports for OSX and Linux) are available in the downloads section on our website. Of course you can also use the over-the-air update functionality from within SX OS!

That's it for today. Stay tuned for more news!

SX OS v3.0.2 Beta Announcement

Another day, another update.

Following the release of SX OS 3.0.0 beta we got a lot of feedback from the community again. Today we are releasing SX OS 3.0.2 Beta to address some important issues.

  • Fixed error 2162-0002 game crashes (v3.0.2 only, v3.0.1 been purged)
    We introduced a regression in SX OS 2.9.5 which made some games crash with error code 2162-0002 (when accessing in game manuals and such). This has been addressed and resolved.
  • Fixed savedata bug
    In some instances game progress would not be saved correctly. This behavior could be observed in "castle crashers" (for example). This has been tracked down and resolved!
  • Reworked "GPT Repair" functionality for big-NAND users
    Some people with bigger NAND chips reported not being able to boot into SX OS with our latest update. Affected users should use the "GPT repair" option in the SX OS boot menu (Under options -> NAND) which has been revised to fix the partition table for people with bigger capacity NAND chips.
  • Popular extensions working again
    Popular extensions to SX OS like SX Autoloader, Tesla Overlays and sys-clk overlay are fully working again!
  • Reboot to payload functionality restored
    You can now reboot to any payload again. (Only for Erista consoles)
  • EmuNAND on eMMC working again
    We got reports of EmuNANDs stored on eMMC no longer working, this has been addressed and fixed.
  • Many other minor stability improvements
    General system stability improvements to enhance the user’s experience.

That's all for today. We are working hard to bring more innovative and exciting things to your Switch, stay tuned!

SX OS v3.0.0 BETA Announcement

Good day people!
With all the tragedy in the world going on right now, a little update from your favorite crew might spark a bit of joy.

SXOS300BETA

The testing phase for our new SX Core and Lite products is well under way. We have gotten a lot of feedback and are actively working on incorperating these suggestions and details to bring you the best end-user experience.

It has come to our attention some people didn't take the Non Disclosure Agreement we (did not ;-)) make them sign too seriously. Thus, we are releasing SX OS v3.0.0 beta to the public today.

We would (again) strongly suggest *not* to use any builds of SX OS that were not distributed by us (This includes private links that do point to our servers, for what it's worth). It could pose a risk to your hardware and data and creates a potential support nightmare for us. Thank you for your understanding.

Let's not waste any more time and have a look at the changelog for SX OS v3.0.0:

  • Full support for Mariko and Switch Lite consoles.
    That's right, SX OS now supports 100% of all consoles manufactured to date.
  • Support for SX Core and SX Lite boot methods.
    With SX Core and SX Lite arriving to the mainstream audience soon, we want to make sure you can actually use your product when it arrives to your doorstep. We would like to remind you every SX Core and SX Lite comes with a *free* license for SX OS. No need to pick up a license key separately. Just activate your product like you normally would. (Through our website or using the SX OS menu)
  • Support for systems with a larger NAND
    Die hard Switch modders who have installed a larger NAND storage in their switches are now actually able to use it with SX OS. (Previously it would hang during boot)
  • Fixed error 2162-0002 game crashes
    We introduced a regression in SX OS 2.9.5 which made some games crash with error code 2162-0002 (when accessing in game manuals and such). This has been addressed and resolved.
  • Fix bug with displaying MAIN memory addresses in cheat finder
    We had a little regression in the cheatfinder a while ago that slipped past our QA somehow. All you cheat hunters can rejoice, this has been fixed!

There's many under the hood changes we won't bore you with, if you encounter any issues do not hesitate to let us know!

That's all we have in store for you today. We are happy to see our new products are being embraced by a wild variety of entities worldwide. We promised a solution for the unliberated Switch consoles, and we are the first to deliver one. Keep this in mind when you vouch for any derivative works, and have a good night!

SX Core and SX Lite Installation Manuals Released

Good day people!
With all the tragedy in the world going on right now, a little update from your favorite crew might spark a bit of joy.

SXCore     SXLite

The testing phase for our new SX Core and Lite products is well under way. We have gotten a lot of feedback and are actively working on in-cooperating these suggestions and details to bring you the best end-user experience. In the meantime we have now updated our SX Portal Site with our Installation Manuals for our SX Core and SX Lite products.

That's all for now!

SX Core & SX Lite Review and Test Samples are Underway!

Finally, after a long and unexpected delay due to Coronavirus we shipped today all samples of both SX Core & SX Lite!

  • SX Core is compatible with all Switch regular models, whether they are Mariko, patched or unpatched.
  • SX Lite is for all Switch Lite.
  • All firmwares are supported for both regular and lite versions.
  • SX OS license is included with both models.

SXCL

If you are one of the approved reviewers, you will receive your tracking number tomorrow so you can follow your parcel. Expect delivery end of this week or early next.

As we indicated before, both products require soldering. With the help of that large panel of reviewers, we will finetune installation diagrams, correct any bug they might encounter so you have a great experience with our product from day 1.

We are proud of the hard work behind these products and we also can't wait to ship to retailers so all Team Xecuter supporters can enjoy a fully unlocked Switch regardless of the model they have.

If you can solder, we recommend placing your preorder now as demand will be massive (but don't worry, just for May we have already large stocks ready to ship).

If you are not comfortable with soldering, please wait for a installer near you to receive stocks so he can install it for you. Installers will also offer pre-installed consoles so you have all ready at once if you do not own a Switch yet.

Expect lots of reviews and feedback in the coming days from the test team.
Until then, stay safe and get ready to enjoy!

SX Autoloader Updated For v10.0.x Firmwares

Team [WAIN] is back with another update to their SX Autoloader release!

When v10.0.x firmwares was released, it was soon discovered that it had issues with the older SX Autoloader v1.30, but now it has been fixed and updated to v1.40 by Team [WAIN] and you can now go back to enjoying how easy it is to mount your XCI (dumped cartridges) on your Switch console (including now the Chinese cartridge dumps), when running on the latest Nintendo firmware on your Switch, and the recently released v2.9.5 SX OS Beta.

Changelog v1.40

  • Support for v10.0.x Switch Firmwares
  • Compatibly with v2.9.5 SX OS Beta

As usual, you can find the latest version of WAIN's SX Autoloader in our TX Community Resources section, just unpack the new version overwriting the previous files on your Micro SD Card. For more info and support, please also join our Official TX Chat Server. 🙂

SX OS v2.9.5 Beta Announcement

Another day, another SX OS release! Today we are proud to bring you SX OS 2.9.5 beta.

SX295

This SX OS update addresses the following things:

  • Full support for firmware 10.0(.1)
    The latest and greatest firmware is fully supported now. This includes compatibility with the minor update released this week (10.0.1)!
  • Local Multiplayer over the internet (LAN play) updated.
    Local Multiplayer over the internet (LAN play) has gotten some stability improvements. This should help with newer games like Animal Crossing. Please keep in mind to use appropriate MTU/PMTU settings, as some games are very picky about the introduced latency when playing over the internet.
  • Support for chinese gamecart images.
    We have added support for playing backups of chinese gamecart (XCI) images. The switch released in Mainland China only has very few cartridges available at the moment, but this groundwork has also been made so we can support playing western games on chinese switches that soon will be able to run SX OS using our new SX Core/Lite product family!

That's all we have for today! SX OS v2.9.5 beta is now available on our website or through the online updater built into SX OS.

Stay tuned for more SX OS and SX Core news!
