Nx-USB allows you to transfer files between your Nintendo Switch and computer, no WiFi or rebooting required!
Nx-USB is composed of 2 parts: a "server" component that runs on the switch, called
nxusb_server.nro, and a "client" component that runs each command on the computer.
Grab a copy of
nxusb_server.nro. This can either be done by building it yourself, or just by downloading it from the Releases page.
Make sure that you have gotten
nxusb_server.nro on to your Switch somewhere where it can be ran from.
Find a valid client, which at this point is only possible by downloading Rust and building it yourself via
cargo build -p client. At the moment, the client executable is just called
client, so that is what we will be using to refer to it here, but this may change in the future.
Connect the Switch to the computer via USB.
nxusb_server.nro on the Switch.
Use the client to transfer files between the computer and the switch:
To "push" a file TO the Switch FROM the computer, use
./client --push [NEW PATH ON SWITCH] [EXISTING FILE ON COMPUTER].
To "pull" a file FROM the Switch TO the computer, use
./client --pull [EXISTING FILE ON SWITCH] [NEW PATH ON COMPUTER]`
This project was built in Rust with libnx-rs. Docker is currently the prefered build evironment, but it is perfectly possible to build an
nro without it as long as you have
xargo, and nightly Rust installed. No matter which environment is being used, you can build an
nro by calling
./makew; this builds the correct crate via
xargo and then converts the
