Hi all,

So I have downloaded SX OS 2.9.1 from here:


On 2017 Switch model firmware version 9.0.0.

But when I click "Start Custom Firmware" the console boots back into the normal Switch OS anyway. Any thoughts on this? Thanks.

Thanks. I am now seeing the SX OS screen. One more question, I am attempting to use Checkpoint on my system, do I need an SX OS license to do this? I am seeing the screen that says license not found but its not letting me select the homebrew option. I already have checkpoint on my sd card, thanks.

Make sure you are using SX 2.9.2 and Choi 1.0.2. You can get to the regular HB menu by holding R when launching the Album.
