CDN downloader for Switch (NX)

We already have the wonderful update to HACDN v3 by @SimonMKWii, but here is another way to D/L your shit, thanks to @Reisyukaku for working more on the CDNX project and making it secure, of course no one knows for sure if anything is 100% safe, or if big 'N' might just swing the 'ban hammer' in waves at some point in the Switch land, so please understand the risks first!

DON'T UPGRADE to v4.x.x for this, really don't please. It's not worth it. Wait for proper Atmosphere which will be 100x better.

Every since @SciresM tested HBL working on 'higher' firmwares than v3.0.0, developers have been fast-paced to do the same, first earlier this week we saw a 'hekate-ipl' mod for v5.0.x firmwares, and now here is similar mod of payload for usage on v4.x.x devices.

@BernardoGiordano just released the popular savegame manager known from the 3DS for the Switch.

GBATemp'er @lordelan reports that finally scene developer @BernardoGiordano has finished the porting of the popular 'Checkpoint Savegame Manager' from the 3DS handheld over for usage of Switch'es that can run the Homebrew launcher, sadly that is currently limited to v3.0.0 and @Scarlet reports that v2.3.0 works as well, but if you been following the fast-moving Nintendo Scene you will know that will change soon, as video teasers of HBL running on v5.0.x firmwares have been released earlier this week, sadly the second downfall with this 3DS savegame manager port is that it needs the 'touch screen' to use it, which means only backing up your 'saves' via portable mode, not while in 'docked mode', but hey still a ton better then waiting until September 2018 for the 'official' cloud save feature...

@LetsPlentendo has developed a totally silly 'payload' to enjoy on your Nintendo Switch!

Now, that everyone that owns a Switch can launch their own 'frozen rockets' via an USB-C connection and shorting the pins 1&10 on the right Joycon rail, why not have some fun with it, and that is just what scene developer @LetsPlentendo has decided to do, a payload that does nothing, but display your own custom image on the Switch display screen when launched. :)
