    SX OS users as usual wait 3 weeks until Team Theftecuter steals and ports the code from Atmosphere.

      The SX Installer was just updated to v1.3 which includes support for Switch fw 7.0.

        nope, that’s ***. the supposed “support” for 7.0.0 is just for games, updates and dlcs made for 7.0.0, not the firmware itself, since no cfw has been updated for it yet. we all know how TX steals code and breaks licenses, but i honestly didn’t expect them to pull off such a shady marketing trick.

        Cool. Nothing to do with CFW, but cool that we can install 7.0 games/updates I guess.

        7.x changes many parts of the API. If a real 7.x SDK game was released today, you could install it but it would break when running so your point is moot. It’s like tinfoil’s “ignore firmware version” feature which is not a replacement to proper CFW.

    That’s actually funny

    Wow.. first? Good news I guess but I won’t be hacking mine until EOL

    Hey guys, just want to ask a question. Is there now a hack that lets you run game backups on a patched Switch?

    I’m wait for the release.

    will it be possible to install a 7.0 CFW (of course, when released) directly from 7.0 OFW ? or is it necessary to first be on a lower firmware from the start?

      If you have an old Switch hardware model, then you can go from 7.0.0 OFW to 7.0.0 CFW.

      If you have a new Switch hardware model, then you cannot use CFW at all (for now, at least).
