I just received my SX OS Pro yesterday. I installed everything like it said to, I start my game and am able to play for about 5 minutes and the game crashes. I have my SD card in FAT32, my switch is 9.0.1, and I'm using 2.9.2 At first I thought it was the cheat I downloaded, so I tried a different one and same issue.

haven't heard of any crashes before
game crashing or game working today then fail to work tomorrow could be bad/fake microsd problem
you could try : don't use any cheats or try another microsd if you have any

I did shut the cheats off and no crashing. The SD card is only about a week old and in FAT32, I had bought it to try my first shot at homebrew and I'm such a noob that when I saw the SX Pro, I reformatted my SD card and started over with SX OS. I used a PC to do the install, but used my Imac to move the cheats over to the SD card. It wouldn't be that would it? Or did I add the cheats to the SD card in the wrong place? I put the SX OS file I downloaded in the main area and not in a different folder

Mac and the Switch do not like each other. The Mac adds a bit to files for archiving and Spotlight I believe. You can remove them with a terminal command, but I am not sure what it is. I would use FTP if you only have access to a Mac. You can also use SX Installer to download cheats right on the Switch and then turn them on in the Album.

I have access to a PC laptop also, that is what I used when I added the program to the SD card. It is an older one running Windows Vista with an old version of Winzip on it. I had deleted the cheat file I added with the Mac and readded them with the PC, still had same issue. I would love it if I had some one who could actually show me how to do it in case I did something incorrectly when I did the installation. Anyways when I first got the SD card, I formatted it and used the information on sdsetup.com on homebrew sd setup and had installed the Kosmos default software bundle they had (Atmosphere, Edizon, Hekate, etc) but I had no idea where to add the cheat file. So when I got the SX Pro, it had me reformat the SD card and then I installed the SX OS software with the old PC. Do I need to reformat the SD card and use a newer PC with a more current version of Windows and extracting software and start over? I have also had to have the dongle inserted to get the switch to boot.... Before I received the SX Pro, I did use PKHex to update my game file to give me 900 Master Balls, is that maybe the issue?
