    The other thread was a bit cluttered and I have some information that I wanted to post.

    Team Xecuter recently posted a couple of FAQs answering most of the questions the community had. Out of the box homebrew support, split XCI support for those that don't have the SDXC update and a fixed sleep mode.
    FAQ 1+2

    Team Xecuter created a news post about the first two products in their SX line. More details are listed below;

    Hmm. So what we need, is one guy to buy it and download the payload from it (and obviously share it). Then everyone can use it for free :D

    Unfortunately more expensive than expected.

    Edit: To all the guys laughing at me and liking that other post, remember that $26 is the amount you pay if you're a reseller! Retail is $40+, not the $29.99 price point that was rumored.

    Look at this!

    Yeah I wonder what if anything is stopping everyone from just copying it. Seems like the best option until Atmosphere catches up.

    I'm not entirely sure, but I feel like that's where the "OS software license" will come in. At least that's the feeling I got when I read over the description.
    Now yes someone could just share a license file they have, but that never works for the majority of software, so depending on how it is implemented that might not be possible. (unless cracked, but freeware is soon too anyway so doubt it matters)

    Hopefully someone figures out how to RE their payload and let us skip over all the software license mumbu jumbo.

    Piracy is lame unless you are pirating a software meant for piracy

    It probably cost pennies to manufacture a sd card but people still buy 400gb cards for 250$
