SX OS Updated to 1.3

There has been a flurry of people on both sides of the aisle with opinions of the SX OS recently. To date, we’ve been covering the information from both sides. Word on the street is that there is a new update to the SX OS. And we have all of said new information for you if you’re on the side of the aisle that bought the SX OS or SX Pro.


  • Added LayeredFS Support

‘Are you excited about any upcoming Game Mods for switch games? Well, we are! To
  accommodate this we have added what is commonly referred to as “LayeredFS” support.
  In short what this allows you to do is override specific files from a game with
  modified copies that are loaded from your microSD’s (ex)FAT partition.
  Place your custom game files under the following locations on the microSD root:
  – /sxos/titles/<titleid>/exefs/
  – /sxos/titles/<titleid>/romfs/
  We can’t wait to see what cool mods the community will come up with!’

  • Added eShop NSP Support

‘This adds support for installing and launching installed eShop NSP files. This
  is still rough around the edges and for advanced users only. To install NSP
  files you need a legitimate copy of the DevMenu, which can be launched
  currently via LayeredFS. We are still working on adding a custom and easy to
  use NSP installer to our own menu system. Stay tuned!
  WARNING: We do not recommend playing online with installed eShop NSP games
  without a valid ticket, as this WILL lead to a console ban without a doubt.’

  • Added Low Battery Reconfiguration on Boot Up

 ‘Some users were having battery issues after playing around with Switch Linux
  custom payload. This fixes the “battery desync” issue every time you boot your
  switch. If you weren’t use Switch Linux there’s nothing to worry, otherwise;
  enjoy your penguins AND enjoy your horizon OS! ;-)’

  • OSX Temp Files are Now Hidden in Game Selection Menu

‘If you were pestered by bogus entries in the game selection menu chances are
  high this is because you are using OSX (and Finder). We simply hide those files
  from the menu now. All cleaned up!’

  • Removed eMMC Password Lock

‘It seems a perfectly safe and easily reversible hacker challenge we put in place for aspiring hackers has been
  blown out of proportion. We are sad to see so many false claims on the internet
  and to avoid any further false accusations and ‘fake news’ we decided to get rid
  of it. Namaste.’   


  1. Download the latest SX OS boot.dat file from xecuter
  2. Insert your Switch’s microSD card into your computer.
  3. Drag and drop boot.dat file to the microSD card. If you have an old boot.dat file, let this overwrite it. If you’re a new SX OS user, this just sits on the root.
  4. Return your microSD card to your Switch and use it how you always have.
  5. Boot the system using the SX Pro dongle or the payload injection method as you always have.
