This is a pretty important release. If you're updating this from an older version, it is recommended to delete your /switch/NX-Shell/ folder before you install this update. This is the last version where you'll have to do this. Future updates will automatically handle this.


  • Make use of the GPU hardware acceleration.
  • Switch to internal FS functions to display directory list.
  • Added config version to config files - If a new version is found where the config file needs to be changed, it will automatically be deleted and regenerated.
  • Replaced the executable icon with something more dark theme friendly.
  • Local time is now supported.
  • Displays file permissions in properties.
  • Display storage bar for current mounted device. (some devices/mount points don't have this)
  • Allow user to browse other user partitions from menu bar. (Very little can be done at this time, since it seems FS functions are locked out of using them).
  • Lock applet during write/cut/copy/delete processes.
  • Added a "More..." button in file options.
    • Added a "Refresh" button refresh directory list.
    • Added a "New file" button to create an empty file.
    • Added a button to set archive bit on checked directories or currently highlighted/selected directories. - This
      feature is a work in progress. Don't use this with any important directories unless you know what you're
      doing. This feature can only be accessed if "Developer options" is enabled.
  • Added a new options in Settings called "Developer options". If this toggle is set, any FS function that fails to execute properly will be logged in a file called debug.log, which can be found in /switch/NX-Shell/debug.log.
  • Wrap CWD display if it gets too long.
  • Improve book reader controls in landscape mode (Right stick right/left should zoom in/out in landscape mode)


  • Fix last saved directories not properly being read due to having spaces in their names.
  • Fix automatic scroll when selecting a checkbox.
  • Fix exit key (PLUS) in music player, image viewer and settings.
  • Book reader no longer displays status bar after every page. Only displayed during zooming or if screen is touched in the middle or outside touch area depending on the orientation.
  • Many under the hood changes.
