You need up to master_key 6 for FW 6.x. That's the issue with emuand and lockpick I believe. It pulls the keys for I guess the sysnand even if you're in emunand, though I do not think that FW 4.x is master_key 5 either so thats also weird.
Yes, that's what I thought. FW 4.x only goes up to master_key 4. I believe any FW LOWER than 6.2 have master_keys up to 5. You need fw 6.2 for master_keys 6.

What's funny is that when I dumped my keys as per top guide for this thread, I was able to use the NSC Builder to convert my nsp games to xci without issues. Correct dumped keys are required for NSC Bulder to work.

Can anyone confirm if new version of Lockpic pulls keys from sysnand and NOT emuNand? I'm trying to install Themes on my emuNand 6.1 with sysNand on 4.1. Currently using a 128 GB SD card formatted in exFat. Note that my emuNand is on switch partition and NOT on sdcard.

I have not tried it personally yet because I pulled keys off a friends Switch that wasn't running emunand a month or so ago, but it won't hurt anything to just dump the keys and then open the text file to see if it has master_key 6

I have copy of Switch master keys txt. Can I edit my keys txt and add missing master_key to it? If so, what would I need to add besides the master_key_06? What about package2_key_06?

I can't answer that. I am not sure what is actually different in the rest of the file other than in the beginning you would have up to master_key_6 if you are running 6.0 or higher.

Do you have up to master key 6 in your key file that you dumped? If not that is most likely the problem.

master_key_02 = ***
master_key_03 = ***

what was the name of the folder and where did you create it?
sxos folder is the name and should be on the root of you SD.

Thanks for the great tutorial,
I have an issue when dumping the TSEC keys, I get the following16265
vol up or down doesn't do anything, power button either, have to hold it to shut down.
I downloaded the latest version of the tools in the tutorial.
My sdcard is exfat. I even created a TSEC folder on it just in case, no issue with the fuse info

Anything I am missing?

Thanks for the help

How do you get things work? I have sysnand 4.1 and emunand 6.2 installed on sdcard. everything seem to be fine, but after reboot, the theme doesn't appear.

Edited :
It's working with emunand. Make sure you have SXOS folder on the root sdcard. In my case, I have atmo folder so it extracted to there.

Hi all, if you have difficulties, respect turorial page 1 and follow this:

1. download and install Nx theme installer
2. download the theme zip file
3. replace your szs files with the supplied szs in this theme, Place them in the themes>system data folder created by nx theme installer.
4. Install the Nx theme with the installer. (you need open all .nxthemes [of the theme], don't forget one!)
5. Enjoy

Does this guide works on emunand 8.0.1 with latest sxos? Are the steps the same?
I'm on 8.0.1 and analog/d-pad navigation doesn't work with themes in home menu.
Other than that, rest of menus is OK.
