    Cool. But SX payload already has a payloader and people who bought the pro are probably gona use sx os 99% of the time, so kinda pointless (in my opinion).

    If for any reason you would like to skip sx OS it s a really good tool. If one day sx is becomes abandonware (like gateway) and becomes very detectable or unable to boot newer payloads you could give a good use to that tool.

    I am pretty sure that when that time comes, every FW would have coldboot by that.

    SX OS doesn't offer options like Hekate though - NAND backup, Log Clearing, ect. I was waiting for something just like this since SX OS doesn't have these options built in yet.

    But being able to run any payload from SD (payloader in SX payload) is much better than replacing the file each time you want different payload.

    True, I forgot you need to replace the boot.dat with this method. I haven't looked into launching a different payload through the SX launcher. Is it easy or is there any tutorial available on their site or here for it?

    just hold vol+ -> options -> launch external -> pick the one you want -> done. So really easy.

    I should mention I have SX Pro. Do the files need to be present on SD card or is it only available while plugged into a PC?

    On SD. Just put the .bin on SD and you can launch it from there.

    But SX does allow this, right now, for free. Why wait?

    Outside your windows ᕙ(◔ᗜ◔)ᕗ
    So this allows the SX PRO dongle to boot up other payloads than SX OS?

    This isn't true for me at all though. I bought SX Pro specifically for the dongle and only the dongle. I have SX OS. Haven't booted it once. Haven't even activated it.

    Maybe I'm in the minority though, I don't know.

    definitely a minority. because you can buy like $5 router which can be turned into a dongle.
