About the backups of Switch games
As you know, if you would like to play free games on your Nintendo Switch console, you should first find the rummy games that are dumped as a backup. And then, you can run the game files backups on your console. A dump is a file, maybe extensions in different formats, for example NSP, .XCI, .3DS, .CIA etc. which contains a copied game. This file can then be used as it is on a Linker (Stargate 3DS, R4, Sky3DS + …) or, perhaps converted to work on your console by installing a CFW.
Currently, the file format .XCI and .NSP are the two backups of the most popular Switch games. BigBlueBox, which is a group to hack the Nintendo games, it is different than the other groups who indulge in cracking the game console, this group prefers to look how to dump the files of the games and how to run the games dumped on the Switch. The secrets of the game cartridge protection system of the Nintendo Switch have been cracked by BigBlueBox team hackers.
4NXCI is based onhactool by SciresM hactool
However, many users would like to be able to convert* .XCI files to * .NSP format because they can only be used on the SX OS. Today the developer The4N comes to satisfy its users, bringing us a tool that will satisfy more than one: a converter Format * .XCI format * .NSP!
The tool is called 4NXCI and to use it you will need a Keyset (private key set) extracted directly from your Nintendo Switch and grouped as a file named “keys.dat” to place in the same folder than the application. Then drag the* .XCI file to the 4NXCI application and wait. You will have an * .NSP file installable only from Tinfoil.
while many developers try to trob a way to load and execute .xci backups using the latest custom scene frimware, the-4ndeveloper has just published a useful file converter from XCI format to NSP format.
You can get keys.dat (you can either extract it directly withkezplez–nx or rename it to keys.ini or keys.txt) and put it in the same folder as 4nxci.exe. Drag and drop the XCI file onto the 4nxci.exe program to complete the conversion. It’s not perfect yet. It can be installed from the install menu of tinfoil or SX OS. The converted NSP can be installed, updated, and installed on the DLC. (DLC is not installed as tinfoil, so it uses devmenu or SX OS)
This simple application could be particularly useful, many games that are present in physical format, have not yet been published on the Store in .nsp format. In order to run the application correctly you will need to get a set of private keys (keyset) extracted directly from your Switch itself and saved in a file called keys.dat. The key set must be in the same directory as the application. However, it is a very early alpha version that still needs several different corrections. The tool is based on the hactool application of the developer SciresM.
