    TX is back with a major update to your favorite SX Installer app!
    And with the release of v2.0.0 that means a lot of very nice new features.

    It has been a while since SX Installer was updated, but earlier today TX released v2.0.0 which brings with it a number of nice improvements as you can see in their changelog below, and one of the amazing new features is that you can now upgrade and downgrade your Switch firmware with ease and safety, as simple as installing a NSP game on your Switch!
    That's all for today. Stay tuned!

    To find their latest SX Installer, please visit the SX Portal page and for recent Switch firmwares check out this handy listing of firmware packs, and remember for support please visit their TX Commmunity for help from fellow SX users.

      dropbox sounds interesting feature if its to download/install your own games.

      if so, would be nice to be able to customise this to your own private domain so your files dont get deleted by google

      Ok, not present in the main 'news posting' is how you can easy enable the 'firmware install' features, by default its turned off, but here is how as 'advanced user' you can direct enable it if you so wish:
      1. Start up your SX Installer v2.0.0 app
      2. Scroll down to 'file browser' on left-hand menu.
      3. Press A to enter.
      4. Press X to add 'NEW' location.
      5. Select HTTPS under Protocol (A, then stick down few times, then A again)
      6. On same screen under HOST enter 'repo.xecuter.rocks' (A, enter text, OK)
      7. Finally press 'X' to SAVE your new location.
      8. Once save, quit your SX Installer app.
      9. Restart your SX Installer app
      That's it! :) You should now see 'system updates' if your Switch is running on older firmware than current released Nintendo firmware, from this new menu item you can go and upgrade your firmware.

      If you wish to downgrade, scroll down to 'file browser', open the new location you added 'repo.xecuter.rocks' and from there you can copy an older install firmware package to your sdcard or open it direct (not recommended as its slower).

      See the attached screenshots for more info.

      New The zip on 'sx portal' website been silently updated, only tiny minor bug fix, it now contains an 'empty' cache folder/directory.

      If you had issues with running sx installer, mainly the listing of homebrew store being 'blank', then make sure on your sdcard you have an 'switch/sx/cache' folder as currently sx installer still writes a few files there.
      Developer thought the usage of 'cache' folder was removed, but it seems it still needed at least for the 'homebrew store'.

      Our many thanks to @madasahat for pointing out this tiny minor mistake!
