    Right ladies and gents, I won't be covering as much as @realtimesave, as I am certain he has done an amazing review that I can barely add to, But here goes:

    20180623_120028.jpg

    I received my review unit on Saturday, but was away so have not had a great deal of a chance to play with it fully.

    This came in a very nicely packaged box containing the slide dongle to go in the right joy con, The USB-C payload dongle and a Micro-USB cable, I quite like the packaging logo matching the OS background logo.

    Now as to start with I inserted the USB-C payload dongle into the USB-C port at the bottom of the switch, And then sliding jig dongle into where the right joy con slides in, Obviously make sure the pins are to the bottom with the ON to the bottom on the outside. Also pulled the Samsung 256gb SD card and put the boot.dat file on from the SX OS 1.2 zip file.

    At this point I held down the volume up and the power button and was greeted by the SX logo on screen, was a nice sight to see. At this stage I just followed the process for activation. Everything worked directly from the switch itself as I kept it online (Not bothered about a ban)

    Was greeted by the pleasing screen of licence ok, So no need to activate from the SX website.

    Next up was to Download some test games, did this as was easy for me rather than dump the physical carts, I then used XCI cutter to batch process both cart 1 and 2 games, This worked wonderfully and took a lot from the file sizes from most games. Now I did put a lot games on so I had a long wait to test any before they downloaded there updates.

    Usage is very simple press the album tile on the switch and you will be taken to all the games on the SD card, select which one you want to boot and it then goes back to normal game selection main screen and will show the title you selected as a physical game cart, Select it and enjoy.

    Loading time from my SD card are pretty fast, So no complaints there.

    I did try out pfba as homebrew, but not enough to include in the review, I will update once I have had time to test out homebrew more.

    Anyway have a happy time playing with your SX OS pro's as and when they land, Trust me everyone will love it.

    Special thanks to @GaryOPA for organising for me to be a reviewer on this fine product and TX for producing SX pro. Finally to @realtimesave for being so comprehensive with his review and saving me writing one so long.

      i was very happy when mine came yesterday, only one thing i would like to see is the option to boot normally if you dont plug the dongle in.

      To do that you need to 'not install' AutoRCM, then you have to use the 'jig' and 'dongle' each time you wish to boot SX OS.

      Personally, I rather not have AutoRCM, and keep my Nintendo untouched. -- And to use another way to 'trigger' the Jig part, by modding the JoyCon to add an extra button in it, or something similar.

      Have not had a problem with battery drain with auto rcm. But always docked when not in use. I have personally turned it off as my young son uses it and I can't trust him not to play until battery dies

      Ok in this review it mentions doing something online as they're not bothered about a ban.

      What's the offline method for those of us who want to keep our switch "clean" and only use homebrew offline?

      Airplane mode and activate licence through website, Is this not a self ban anyway, Also I am not suggesting that using SX OS will get you banned, I Have had an error message for forgetting to patch my header cert, But can still access eshop.

      Don't mean to come across rude. But why try to modify a system if you are not prepared to lose online privileges. Most console manufacturers have been banning modded systems for about ten years now

      Because I'm looking to run homebrew suck as scummvm but I still want to buy games and play online.

      If I'm banned it's not the end of the world but if I can avoid it great.
