SX OS v3.0.5 Beta Announcement

Good day everyone!

We are back with another update for SX OS that contains some important compatibility fixes.

SX305

So, what is new in this release?

  • Full compatibility with Switch Firmware 10.2.0
    You can now safely enjoy firmware 10.2.0 from your emuNAND!
  • Stable Super Mario 3D All-Stars
    We got reports of crash/hang issues with the popular upcoming game `Super Mario 3D All-Stars`, we've investigated this and fixed it!
  • Improved console battery life
    Previously, when shutting down the console a tiny amount of current was still being drawn. This has been resolved, your battery won't deplete anymore when the console is turned off.
  • General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience.

SX Save Manager v1.1

First we want to thank all SX OS users who also added SX Save Manager to their SX library for the feedback they sent us. It helps us greatly improves our products.

So here is our first update, which mainly focus on correcting small bugs and make it what we think is a pretty stable version that all of you can enjoy without worries.

Changelog:

  • Fixed two simple but easy to miss bugs that caused many users to crash if they had over 30 titles or corrupt games installed. We apologize for any inconveniences caused by this.
  • Added a settings menu
  • Added option to hide device saves
  • Added support for BCAT data
  • Changed "Export or import" text to "Backup or restore" to avoid confusion
  • Added fast scrolling using the left analogue stick
  • Sort mode is now saved instead of defaulting on launch
  • The UI's game name text now also includes the save type for all types
  • SX Save Manager is now hidden in the list
  • Removed 8.8.8.8 DNS override (this app only, not system wide) to increase compatibility
  • Added option to back up all data to the SD card
  • Added option to use custom file names
  • Many small improvements to increase stability

Additionally some users were confused by the different types of saves. Here is a brief explanation.

  • A user specific save is a save file that belongs to a user. That save is loaded when the game is launched by that user.
  • A common user save (also known as a device save) is a save file that doesn't belong to a user, these saves are used by all users. An example of a common user save is Animal Crossing where all players on a single Switch share one island.
  • BCAT data is data used by Nintendo to add new content to games without releasing a full update for example Animal Crossing uses it to add events without releasing full updates.

More to come in the future as we keep on pushing further the limits of your beloved Switch console !

This time we bring you a simple app for the PC, that allows you to update 'offline' our SX OS, it works just like our Switch OTA Updater, but runs on your PC, and is useful for those having issues accessing our SX Portal website, or trouble downloading and unpacking files.

To use:

  • Insert an SDCard for your Switch Console into your PC.
  • Start the software, and select the Device Letter in the dropbox menu.
  • If you have SX OS, the update status will be checked and the Changelog displayed,
    (You can also select between Stable (or) Beta versions by checking the checkbox).
  • Otherwise, if your SDCard has no SX OS, you will instead be prompted to install SX OS.
  • Click Update (or) Install to start the process.

You can find/download this new tool HERE in our TX Community Resources section.

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!
