The Xecuter Team has released a new version 2.0.0 of SX installer. This version will allow you to install XCI  , add a  control for the required firmware version  and install Google Drive and Dropbox NSP. Furthermore, the installation program for the current 8.1.0 firmware has been stabilized and savegames can be decompressed directly during the installation. Last but not least, the  firmware with the required files can be downgraded or updated directly  . More details are available in the change log.

What it is and how it works

This complete app takes care of installations and much more! In fact, a manual is being prepared along with screenshots and detailed information on how best to use all the features we’ve included.

This manual will be available on our SX portal page   when completed, in the meantime we have opened a special ”  support forum  ” for the app and we have decided to release it now, to have it in the hands of our faithful SX Users of the operating system in so you can immediately start enjoying the many features and features it has to offer.

Basically, in its core  SX Installer  is an advanced NSP installer, which simply allows you to list, display, in a single step, automatically install all your NSPs, along with game updates and DLC packages, and these can be searched and acquired from many locations, including: FTP, HTTP, NUT Server (separate app on PC), SD, USB HDD and NAND. SX Installer  has the ability to directly launch XCI games and even launch your Classic Retro “game ROMs” for various emulators installed and, of course, your favorite homebrew apps. It even has an integrated file browser!


To start, unzip the downloaded sxinstaller.zip file   and move all the contents to the root of your SD Card. The “sx.nro” ​​file must be stored in / switch / sx /
