BrowseNX v0.4.0 Released

BrowseNX v0.4.0 Released

crc-32 has released a new version of his BrowseNX homebrew application for the Nintendo Switch hybrid video gaming console. BrowseNX allows you to enable web browsing using the built in hidden web browser. BrowseNX now comes as a NRO (with limited functionality) and an installable NSP file.

Firmware 9.0.0 Warning
Due to changes in the way firmware 9.0.0 handles user input homebrew will have to be recompiled to function correctly using this firmware. Read the changelog to make sure the homebrew you're using has been updated to work on 9.0.0 if you're using firmware 9.0.0 or newer.


BrowseNX is a small installable homebrew application (nsp) for the Nintendo Switch that allows you to use the "hidden" web browser contained within the firmware. The web browser is fully functional and supports the onscreen touchscreen keyboard for browsing websites and defaults to a web portable of sorts, but the launch URL can be configured to anything you like.


*   XorTroll - Working out the browser applet arguments and for the nsp structure/build method.
*   The-4n - Making legal NSP packing easy.
*   Switchbrew - NPDMTool



*   Added support for 9.0.0 officially via building for latest libnx
*   Now using libnx implementation of web applet
*   Launching from an applet never worked and no longer needs to, so now errors and informs you how you can launch from a title
*   Updated [switch-sys-tweak] sysmodule to latest master build (still only used to remove supernag)


NOTE: The title ID of switch-sys-tweaks (supernag patcher) has changed, before manually installing this release, please remove the folder `(sdcard)/atmosphere/titles/01FF415446660000` to ensure future compatibility and avoid unnecessary crashes. Appstore release should do this automatically.

*   Since the detection for supernag seems to override the sysmodule, now checking if the sysmodule is running and if it is, ignoring the supernag state


*   Added initial NRO support
    *   'Initial' because it only works when hbloader is overriding a game or app, not gallery
    *   Doesn't support html5 video playback
*   Added supernag contingency
    *   App will now show an error telling you that the supernag is active and suggest how to remove it, stops accidental fw update via Nintendo error message and confusion
*   Added supernag fix
    *   Each release will now come with a sysmodule pre-packaged which hides the supernag while CFW is active, atmosphere/fs_mitm CFW's only


*   Fixed icon for all CFWs
*   Added a 'Default URL' option which can be set to change the automatically launched URL, stored at `sdmc:/defUrl.txt` (if there's no file it still goes to Fortheusers dash)
*   Improved error catching so a fatal error doesn't require you to reboot nearly as often, using the error applet you can get specific errors as well as often useful error codes, helps contributors for debugging
*   URL entry now checks for common issues with the URL before opening browser (which would fatally crash)
