Touchscreen support, an audio player, an OSK for entering names and more!

Once you have a nicely hacked (modded) Nintendo Switch console, you need a easy way to manage all your homebrew, games, and custom files on your SDCard, without using the PC all the time, and this homebrew does just that, install it, and manage away, plus this latest update adds a ton of new features, and even an 'audio player', so its well worth upgrading to and using on your Switch console.

Team-Xecuter is well known for their high quality console modification products, having especially made a name for themselves in the Xbox 360 scene.

SX Pro moves them into the current generation with a plug & play solution for Nintendo Switch. Inside the package you will find the SX Pro dongle, a small plastic “tool” and a USB cable.

The installation process itself is simple. With the unit powered on, you insert the SX Pro dongle into the charging slot on the bottom of the Switch and wait five seconds.

Then power off (fully, not sleep mode) the Switch and put in an SD cart containing the SX OS boot.dat file. Remove the right Joycon from the Switch and slide the small tool all the way down. It is conveniently labeled on and off so you can see which way it is supposed to go.

All The Keys Needed To Rule The Switch Kingdom Of Mario And Peach!

Evil Bowser is back and has stolen the keys to the Nintendo's EDEV castle, whom cares about the used up Princess when you can have all the development master keys instead, the rumor is an EDEV unit was sold recently on eBay and so of course it didn't take very long before all that good shit like TSEC+Fuses+NAND was dumped and shared.
Code:
keyblob_00 = 4C6A5CF3273BFA10166C689B8403DF55520817FFF2D84D3D5AD3C513ADFFA9C69B7EDD5B01F01D464F09DADF18D2E22EB94C067E48E83FAE2E09934574EF052C66A3576E2E86083700783EA264E14F5FA0D99A13A6EAC6C634C25308F98E50D55D10E3CCFC6D0F9146A6C64DE074689B4D77D1C7F90CC5609089450DB20E684E0F60BE8945FF612F4B07261360B27CDE

Just like the other leaked 'XCI-Dumper' but with 'source code' and hopefully will be updated with more features!

GBATemp'er @jakibaki has taken the 'leaked' WAINCartDumperNX which is closed-source, and rip it apart and added the changes to the previous GITHUB repo that clearly the leaked author had taken the code from, and as such now we have 'open-source' dumper that can be updated!

XCIDumper.jpg
Leaked from ReSwitched Discord Server, but it does work on your older (cart1)-type games on your exploitable Switch!

The piracy scene is on fire again (with a ton of usual scene drama on top to fuel the flames), after someone 'leaked' an 'Cartridge Dumper', but as @AnalogMan points out below, it does have some limits, like no support for newer (cart2)-type games, but the version attached is now updated with features to dump to FAT32 and to dump only your 'private certs', so check it out:

An Anonymous Developer Has Complied This Nice 'XCI Explorer' For Us!

Soon we going to need some good management tools for our (cough) pirated warez, ie. using those nice BBB releases for playing on our Nintendo Switch consoles via the SX Family of products, and future other open-source modchip/CFW releases, so to that end this XCI Exploder, its not perfect, but it does the job needed, extracting certs., injecting them, trimming the ROMs, splitting them, and so on.

Enjoy the ready to go package below, complete with the needed keys and other tools! :) -- Now we just need someplace, somewhere, a website to appear with unused 'certs.' to inject, and tool to dump your own private ones from original game cartridges that you own! :)

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.

CheckSaves.jpg
@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...
