SX Tools FAQ
- Is it original or copying NXloader?: It’s a A modified version of NXLoader.
- Why use this over a web-based launcher?: No internet required, and can auto-launch even if your phone is locked. Simple to use.
- Can it work for SX Gear or SX Pro user?: No, it is only for SX OS license code users who want to boot SX OS via the Android device. SX Pro or future SX Gear are really Plug and Play for installing SX OS.
- Does it need root?: Nope!
- Help! I’m having SUBMITURB Failed issue: Although your mobile phone do have OTG capability, it has an EHCI controller which, unfortunately, isn’t supported. You could either find another phone with XHCI controller, or find a custom kernel for your phone which patches the controller. I would suggest the former.
