Nintendo Switch SX OS 2.0, what is it and when will it be released for modding Switch firmware 6.0.0?

Today, Nintendo Switch released the new version 6.0.0, the related news about SX Pro/SX OS and SX Gear, When will the SX 2.0 will be released? If you have hacked your switch with these SX Products, Can SX OS 2.0 crack Nintendo Switch firmware 6.0 to play games and homebrews? On the below, you can find the solution.

What’s SX OS 2.0?

SX OS is a Custom Firmware for Nintendo Switch. Advanced users can purchase this software separately. It works with every Nintendo Switch console. On every firmware version! If in doubt, please check here if your switch is compatible.

With SX OS you can play all your favorite games straight off of the microSD card inserted into your Nintendo Switch. Using SX OS homebrew menu launcher you can enjoy all the quality games and software by independent developers. Using the SX OS Launcher you can easily boot into the normal Nintendo Switch firmware to enjoy your original games.

Comparing with r4 3ds Firmware, they have the same function, You can think of it as the bootloader or menu system for your ds card. In fact, one of the biggest reasons why many have issues using their cards when they first receive them is because they have not yet installed/copied over the firmware files to their micro SD Card. The biggest difference is that SX OS software can be isolated and used to hack Nintendo Switch without the SX Pro, Although the steps will more difficult than SX Pro. 

How to install SX OS on your switch?

Before activating SX OS you may see the screen below:

  1. A license-request.dat file will be generated and placed on your microSD Card.
  2. Simply insert your microSD card into your computer and upload your license-request.dat file on the official SX OS activation website.
  3. A license.dat will be generated. Download this file and place it on your microSD card

Online Activation Method

  1. Make sure your Switch is connected to the internet
  2. Enter the “album viewer” from the Nintendo Switch main menu and click on “license”
  3. Your license should activate online and a license.dat file will be placed on the microSD card

After you set up this steps, you can now enjoy Switch homebrew and game backups!

You can leave the Nintendo Switch console in CFW mode to be able to play backups/homebrew. If the console goes into Sleep Mode, SX OS CFW will still work after the console wakes up.

If you turn off or reboot your Switch you will need the SX Pro dongle and jig tool to boot into RCM Mode and start SX OS again. You’ll have to hold the Volume Up and Power button with the jig tool and SX Pro dongle inserted.

SX Gear is also compatible with the third-party payloads, if you want to run other Switch firmware like the Atmosphere on your console, the SX Gear can support it too. But currently only on the TX SX OS CFW, we can play retail game card backups and eshop games. SX Gear is made of the SX Gear USB dongle and RCM jig as well as the SX Pro. However, it’s an empty SX Gear dongle, so it’s much cheaper and can be used on different Nintendo Switch consoles.

Can SX OS 2.0 crack Nintendo Switch firmware 6.0 to play games and homebrews?

Yes, this new has been confirmed when SX OS 1.8 released, we can get the official news from Team Xecuter:

Our v1.8 release had an issue for the early adopters of firmware 6.0 where the web applet would crash. This has now been resolved!

We also have some good news for the users of the built-in FTP server: stability and speed of the FTP functionality has been improved.

One request we’ve been getting a lot since the start of our continuous stream of SX OS updates is a method for updating SX OS from within SX OS itself; saving you the hassle of having to swap your microSD out and into the switch all the time whenever we bring something new to the table. Good news! This will be the last time that procedure is needed!

With SX OS v1.9 we introduce our brand new “Update SX OS” functionality. This can be invoked from the menu by selecting “Update SX OS” in the “OPTIONS” tab. This will perform an OTA (Over-The-Air) update using the WiFi connection configured on your switch. If any new updates are found you will be prompted to install them. Enjoy!

And it’s safe to hack Nintendo Switch with SX OS 1.9 even SX OS 2.0, but it has the risk of playing online, Team Xecuter give players a solution, Stealth Mode, It’s activated by default, but it can be deactivated in case we want. It is not advisable, they point out because then we will be at risk of being banned. With it active, the information that is sent from the system is limited. A Switch, with Stealth Mode, does not send personal information to the Nintendo servers even though the basic functions of the Internet are maintained, for example, so that the homebrew works correctly. And the local game on Wi-Fi can also continue to be used, for example, but online multiplayer functions can not.

Stealth Mode is active only in SX OS, so that a boot in the original firmware, with NSP games, can also result in a ban. What can be done, according to Team Xecuter, is to ‘boot’ on the original firmware to use original online games. And for now, yes, it seems to work. But we will have to see how long it takes for Nintendo to respond to this new way of dodging its system against piracy and modification of its video game consoles.

SX OS 2.0 Preview and when will SX OS 2.0 be released for hacking Switch?

 SX OS can still run after updating to 6.0 which is good, and sleep mode is working. For users running ReiNX free cfw, sleep mode is currently broken on 6.0 which is bad
but game backups and homebrew are still working on 6.0 for the most part, only layered filesystem (which is used for modding games) is broken on 6.0
