Hi guys,

I just have received my SX CORE and now I would like to list what I have to do before and after ship installation

Before: Any backup to do? WIFI to disable, etc??
After Installation: download SX OS (boot.dat), install it on SD CARD (formated in XXX) and ...?
Thank you for your help!

Update the firmware to 10.2 if you haven't done it already (you can do this before or after installing the chip, but you might as well do it now and get it out of the way) and put SX OS 3.0.5 boot.dat on your SD card.

You should read the SX OS manual as it explains all the required steps, including how to create emuNAND and also how to generate your console's unique license.dat.

For improved compatibility, make sure you format your SD card to FAT32 - you can use GUI Format to do this.
