Another very useful homebrew updates one year after its last release, we are talking about JKSV from the developer JDK. Born as a small project / port to test some things and become familiar with libnx, it is now the multipurpose tool / homebrew able to perform several functions quite useful as:
- Dump and restore save data.
- Includes the ability to dump and restore to / from any location on SD by pressing less and using Advanced Mode.
- The dump system saves the data
- Pressing all four shoulder buttons simultaneously will re-scan and include system saves not previously listed.
- Dumping of this data is allowed.
- Open and explore your storage partitions via the Extras menu
- BIS archiving opens in a basic file browser. The partition list is on the left. Your SD is on the right.
- Only SD copying and file properties work on BIS partitions. Writing and deleting are disabled for now.
- NAND dump
- Ability to remove firmware updates downloaded from NAND.
- Closing processes by ID . Allow to download normally unopened system archives.
- Install by system save ID . Normally used when the terminated process makes JKSV unable to repeat the title scan without the Switch freezing.
- Mounting and opening RomFS of the process takes over the homebrew menu (if started as NRO)
- Hold R while opening a game or applet with Atmosphere to load the homebrew menu. Open JKSV and press less and select Mount RomFS process . The app’s roms should appear in the browser along with your SD on the right.
Emergency release due to HID changes. Bug reports are appreciated. Changes compared to last year:
- Everything is enabled. It is no longer necessary to keep a combo to enable:
- System Save
- Save device
- Generic icons are generated for things without icons instead of using a large ‘?’.
- Updated for the latest version of libnx
- The ROMFS opening code was removed until I have time to redo it.
- Hopefully the upload in text mode is correct
