  • Integrated NSP installer

    With our last update we introduced the possibility of installing eShop NSP titles. However, this relied on using external tools and wasn’t very user friendly. In this release we bring our own integrated NSP installer as part of our menu system. This is the neatest and easiest way of installing NSP titles, enjoy!

  • Integrated homebrew launcher

    Launching homebrew used to be done by launching NX HBMenu by holding R when entering the album. While we kept this possibility (mostly for developers), you can now also launch your favorite homebrew directly from our own menu!

  • IR / motion plus issue fixed

    A few games (like 1-2-Switch and Resident Evil) were suffering from freezes when enabling the joycon IR camera or motion controls.

  • Allow unsigned NCA

    People asked us if we could get rid of the NCA integrity checks, so we did! Custom NCA files, modified NCA files and repackaged NCA files should all work fine now.

  • Display SX OS version in menu

    To better distinguish the different versions of SX OS we introduced a small version number display in our menu.

  • LayeredFS fixes for 4.1.0

    There were certain issues with ‘LayeredFS’ for people on firmware 4.1.0. If you use ‘LayeredFS’ on that specific firmware there’s good news for you: these issues have been identified and fixed!

Is SX OS V1.4 safe to use for hacking Nintendo Switch?

First of all, the SX OS CFW is NOT having the brick code any more!!! Plus, That “brick code” wasn’t something that a regular user under any circumstance would ever trigger. It was ONLY triggered because a few jackass “hackers” started trying to crack their shit and caused it to cause a brick. It’s also removed and disabled fully now, so it’s currently IMPOSSIBLE to trigger any brick code whatsoever, and that started a few weeks ago with 1.3.

Then, when your Switch is on CFW SX OS V1.4, as long as you don’t play games online, you are 100% safe, no ban, no brick and no patch, the SX OS CFW can work on Nintendo Switch with any firmware version!
