Combine multi-part xci
When dumping games to fat32, you may need to create multi-part xci files. In my experience, you can combine these files by just concatenating them together. For example:
cat *.xc[0-9] > foo.xci 4nxci -k prod.keys foo.xci
Create a Switch compatible partition from linux
Rule #1 is to avoid using exfat at all costs.
The Switch uses MBR 🙄 and has crummy exfat support... The following requires root permissions.
SD_DISK=/dev/sdZ sfdisk "$SD_DISK" <<EOF label: mbr , EOF mkfs.exfat "$SD_DISK"1

- NSP (Nintendo Submission Package): It's the official format used by Nintendo to provide installable content from their CDN servers.
- NRO (Nintendo Relocatable Object): Officially is treated as a dynamic library object, similar to DLLs on Windows. These are loaded dynamically by applications at runtime.

- NACP (Nintendo Application Control Property): This is the format used by Nintendo to store several properties of installed titles, like the title's name, version, author name and other information, like if the title supports screnshots or video captures.
