    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.

      • bandithedoge says:

        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.

      • Unknown Stranger Alien says:

        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.

    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?

    • The Zett says:

      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).

    […] it often happens, firmware updates break CFW compatibility and FW 7.0.0 is no exception even though its keys was cracked within hours. Fast forwarding about 3 weeks and a half, FW 7.0.0’s days of not having a CFW ended as […]
