Switch News: First SX Core and SX Lite units start arriving to approved testers – Team Xecuter to release installation instructions & SX OS boot.dat soon!
As more time goes by, the wait for hacking unhackable Switch console is getting shorter as Team Xecuter’s SX Core and SX Lite move closer to a retail release. In this article, we’re going to look at the latest development on this front which has approved testers receiving their SX Core and SX Lite units which they’ll be able to install and test soon!
Approved testers receive their SX Core and SX Lite testing units with installation guide and software coming soon
Last week, Team Xecuter announced that they had shipped SX Core and SX Lite units to approved testers which consist of trusted scene members with soldering experience.
Approved testers are tasked with installing the SX Core and SX Lite modchips sent to them in order to provide feedback on the installation process and any other issues they may encountered with them so that the hacking solutions released to the public have their rough edges smoothened out.
Now, some of the aforementioned approved testers have received their mod chips as reported by MaxConsole (link below) with them sharing various images of how the mod chips looks like. However, it is currently not possible for those testers who already received their testing unit to actually install it and try it out as Team Xecuter will be publishing installation instructions and sharing the SX OS ‘boot.dat’ that works with these modchips when more approved testers receive their units.
What’s next? When can I hack my unhackable Switch console?
As things currently stand, Team Xecuter will share the information and software necessary to install and use SX Core and SX Lite testing units in the near future. With this in mind, MaxConsole is speculating that testers will be able to install the mod chips they received as early as mid-next week provided that a good deal of approved testers receive their mod chip.
For now, no concrete ETA has been given as to when SX Core and SX Lite will be made available to the public despite pre-orders having been open for over a month. However, unless any major hiccups pop up, Team Xecuter’s hacking solutions may be mere weeks away from being released to the general public as Team Xecuter apparently has a good deal of SX Core/Lite mod chips ready to be shipped in the immediate future after input from approved testers is received.
In other scenes, Cemu 1.19.0 has been publicly released and this release brings about asynchronous shader compilation which aims to nuke all shader compilation-related stutter from the emulator; make sure to check out its change log before using this new feature as it requires one to install beta GPU drivers for both Nvidia and AMD GPUs. The PlayStation Vita received TimeMachine by BalisticksMain which is a homebrew utility allowing one to modify the console’s RTC thus allowing for test kit reactivation and much more.
