SX OS and SX Pro from Team Xecuter Released!

We’ve all seen the build up from Team Xecuter about their SX OS and their SX Pro products that would be released. The SX OS is their custom firmware that works on Switches of all firmwares using your favorite method of payload execution. The SX Pro is a device that can flash their custom firmware using their proprietary dongle. Well, they finally have been released, so let’s go over all of the details together so you can decide which is right for you.

Trailer for SX:

Differences between the two options:

  • SX Pro:
  1. Easier to use, for beginners and/or hobbyists.
  2. Inexpensive if you want a full-fledged backup loading option that is out now. Retails at ~$50 (it depends on the reseller).
  3. It can load secondary homebrew as you normally would on Atmosphere, Hekate, or any other free CFW.
  4. It is portable, and this is the biggest draw for anyone who does not have an Android device. Or if you have a Mac, this is also useful as there is no payload enabler for Mac.
  5. It can be fully charged in roughly 10 seconds. It can last dozens upon dozens of uses before needing to be charged again. Can be charged from Switch if it’s plugged into Switch while it’s in any mode other than RCM.
  6. Works on any Switch on any firmware.
  7. Doesn’t void your Switch’s warranty as it doesn’t need to be soldered inside the system. Just plug and play!
  8. It comes with one free license for use.
  9. It’s future proof, this means it’s completely updateable.
  10. Can automatically load CFW on boot.
  11. Or, you can choose between loading CFW and OFW each time you boot.
  12. There is continued support. The TX team is actively working to bring more exciting functionality to SX OS. Customers are eligible for free lifetime support and updates.

  • SX OS:
  1. Advanced, for more experienced users.
  2. Less cost, the OS is free to use, if you don’t want to do any backup loading.
  3. If you want the full OS that has backup loading, it’s still inexpensive. The license is ~$35 (it depends on the reseller).
  4. It can load secondary homebrew as you normally would on Atmosphere, Hekate, or any other free CFW.
  5. Works with TegraRCMSmash for Windows, NXLoader for Android, and Fusee Launcher for Linux. No Mac support.
  6. Works on any Switch on any firmware.
  7. Can automatically load CFW on boot.
  8. Or, you can choose between loading CFW and OFW each time you boot.
  9. There is continued support. The TX team is actively working to bring more exciting functionality to SX OS. Customers are eligible for free lifetime support and updates.

Overall Thoughts:

It seems to me that the only logical choice here if you don’t mind waiting, is the SX Pro. The thing can go with you, you can update it, it barely costs anything more, it’s updateable. I mean, the thing is extremely versatile. However, if you’re tight on cash, or are extremely impatient, the SX OS with the license is the next best thing. You can have it right now if you want to! If you don’t have any money, the free version of the SX OS isn’t really of much use to anyone. It appears to be about the same as any regular CFW.

The only positive that it brings to the table that the other CFW’s don’t have yet is AutoRCM, which is what you use to always boot into RCM mode without needing the plastic jig or modified Joy-Con. If that’s something you desperately need, go for it, the instructions are below. If you don’t need it, stick with your tried and true CFW’s that you’re already using. Now, we will have an article reviewing the SX Pro if you need further in-depth detail before you buy. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed for that.

If you want to purchase the SX Pro or the SX OS license, click here.
If you just want the free version of their SX OS (or if you have paid for a license), click here to download the payload. Then, click here for the boot.dat.
(Put the boot.dat on the root of your microSD card and flash the payload as you would any other Switch CFW.)
