SX OS v1.1 Update Released

We've had an tremendous amount of positive feedback following the release of SX OS!
So today we bring you a small update to SX OS.

Simply replace boot.dat on your microSD card with the one from the SX OS v1.1 zip file to complete the update.

File can be downloaded from: SX.xecuter.COM

What's new in this release?

  • Improved homebrew compatibility
    We've had reports of some homebrew not running at full speed or not working at all, these issues have been resolved. As you're probably aware, you can enjoy homebrew with SX OS for FREE! (without a license)
  • Added fuse burn protection
    Some people are worried about burning their consoles' fuses, preventing downgrades and possibly hindering upcoming emuNAND support. To put these minds at ease we now prevent these fuses from burning.
  • Support user cert in XCI
    To play online your game (XCI) files need to have a unique certificate embedded. We now properly emulate these certificates, so dumps that have them embedded will be able to play online! Beware though, it is *not* advised to share a certificate with multiple people. Your best option is to make a backup of your own cartridges for the games that you want to play online. A way to do this currently is using WAIN v0.0.3, which can be found here.

In the future we will add our own user friendly cartridge backup functionality to SX OS.

That's it for now. We have much more coming for our userbase (CARD2 anyone?) and we hope you're all enjoying SX OS.

Finally, we want to apologize to the people who are currently anticipating the arrival of their SX Pro… It will be worth the wait though!
