SX OS v2.4 Beta released and supports Switch 6.2.0

Great news. Team xecuter released a new version of SX OS CFW-v2.4 Beta for supporting Switch firmware 6.2.0. And it means we can use SX OS/SX Pro to hack Switch 6.2.0 and play the latest games such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu and Eevee. So what are the new features of SX OS v2.4 Beta? Let’s have a look

SX OS v2.4 Beta Changelog
Support for firmware 6.2.0
Nintendo threw us a small curve-ball while we were in the middle of reworking some other parts of SX OS. That being said, SX OS is now fully compatible with the latest official firmware 6.2.0.

EmuNAND functionality reworked
Our initial release of EmuNAND used a storage mechanism that wasn’t what a lot of people were looking for. In our last release we decided to switch to using the microSD for EmuNAND storage, which in turn made some users that *did* like the old method of storing EmuNAND on the system NAND unhappy. We have reintroduced the support for EmuNAND-on-system-NAND as well as introduced a third storage method for your EmuNAND partition. You can now also opt to use a separate partition (as opposed to files in the regular (ex)FAT filesystem) as a storage backend for your EmuNAND. With three flavors of EmuNAND storage supported now, all of you can rejoice!

To recap, you now have three-way of settings up EmuNAND now:
EmuNAND on system NAND: repurpose part of your Switch internal storage for EmuNAND
EmuNAND on microSD as partition: repartitions your microSD card with a separate EmuNAND partition
EmuNAND on microSD as files: EmuNAND is stored on microSD as files instead of repartitioning

WARNING: Setting up your EmuNAND as partition on your microSD card will format your microSD card. After setup nothing but the boot.dat and license.dat will remain.

Homebrew R button interfering with ingame L+R buttons fixed
In the last release we introduced a method of invoking the homebrew launcher for any title by holding down the [R] button during application/game startup, this gives homebrew additional capabilities that it wouldn’t normally have. However, this seems to have caused some interference with some games, this has been fixed.

Embedded Homebrew Menu
Previously, you had to copy a `hbmenu.nro` file to your microSD card in order to use the homebrew launcher. This has been fully integrated into the SX OS boot.dat file now. Effectively this means all you need for setup is to copy our boot.dat file, simple!
