Team Xecuter claims that the latest SX OS V1.8 should support the next Nintendo Switch firmware v6.0.0. Yes, though the Switch V6.0 firmware isn’t officially released, the company has released the announcement that SX OS V1.8 will be compatible to Nintendo Switch v6.0 update. So SX OS users and any other
Nintendo Switch firmware V6.0.0
It’s not available, but recently many update details about the new firmware v6.0.0 has been leaked by several hackers. Because they found that the Nintendo uploaded the 6.0.0 firmware to their servers before it is really going out. Nintendo Switch firmware v6.0 should be released before the launching of its paid online service in the second half of the month, and it is likely to support the following new features.
- Nintendo Switch Online subscription support (Slogan: “More Games. More Features. More Fun.”)
- Save data backup
- New avatars:Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker icons: 2x Captain Toad, 2x Toadette, 1x Wingo, 1x Draggadon
- New banners of controller icons: Famicom, NES, SNES/SFC
- Mitigations against an unreleased Switch exploit called ‘deja vu’
- Enhanced telemetry to detect exploit utilities
SX OS 1.7
SX OS 1.8 is the latest version of a commercial Switch custom firmware. The Switch CFW can run on Nintendo Switch v5.1.0 and the lower firmware consoles before the V1.8. Once it’s launched on the Nintendo Switch console, users can download and play free games, free homebrews. Unlike the other Switch cfws, the SX OS is the only custom firmware supports .XCI Switch game, which is the downloaded version of retail Switch cartridge. In short, with the SX OS 1.8 compatibility to the future Switch V6.0, all the users will be able to play free games and install homebrews on the new Nintendo Switch firmware again!
We received some feedback from some expert users who are early adopters of the upcoming 6.0 firmware update. It appears we had overlooked something which made SXOS not boot firmware 6.0 for users with an exFAT formatted microSD card.
Oops. Suffice to say, we wasted no time to track down the root cause of this issue and fixed it up for you, still ahead of the official 6.0 release schedule!
Another thing which has been addressed is the incompatibility of the current “layeredFS” implementation with firmware 6.0. SX OS will now automatically disable “layeredFS” support when running on firmware 6.0, preventing any crashes/hangs.
That’s it for now. We’re running out of (reasonable) minor version numbers for SX OS 1… which means we are revving up for the big SX OS 2.0 release! At this point we can’t spoil yet what the next iteration of SX OS has in store for you, but rest assured it will be exciting.
Again, sorry for this minor bug-fix release.
Enjoy the upcoming 6.0 firmware with SX OS!
