Homebrew SD Setup

Homebrew SD Setup is a web application written in C# (and a little bit of JavaScript) running on Blazor. The app lets you select the homebrew applications and custom firmwares you want, and quickly create a zip archive to extract to your SD card. The Ninite for your game consoles.


The application has been verified working in Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Edge on Windows 10, as well as Chrome and Firefox on Android. Other browsers are likely to work fine as long as they support WebAssembly or asm.js, and ES6.

Internet Explorer is explicitly incompatible due to lack of ES6 support. Additionally, Firefox 61 and lower requires the user to manually navigate to the generated ZIP blob because the blob won't download programatically for whatever reason. This is fixed in Firefox 62+.



  • Generate a perfectly formatted file structure in ZIP format, ready for direct extraction to your SD card. No additional setup necessary, just drag and drop!
  • Save your setup so you can update everything later without reselecting all of the packages.

Nintendo Switch

  • Choose between a selection of common homebrew applications, tools and utilities, including:
    • Custom Firmwares (ex. SX OS, Atmosphere, ReiNX)
    • Homebrew Utilities (ex. Homebrew Menu, Checkpoint, JKSV, Tinfoil)
    • Emulators (ex. Salamander RetroNX, pSNES)
    • Games (ex. Mystery of Solarus DX, SDL Prince of Persia)
    • Fusee Payloads (ex. Hekate, BISKeyDump, BriccMii)
    • PC Utilities (ex. TegraRCMSmash)


Head over to, select your console of choice, select the packages you want, and hit download! Once finished, simply extract the contents of the sd folder in the downloaded ZIP archive to the root of your SD card! Do what you wish with any additional folders included in the zip file.

  • A package's information is incorrect
  • A package should be retrieved from a different/better source
  • A browser other than Internet Explorer is incompatible
  • Reporting a bug
  • Suggesting a feature
  • Suggesting a new package
  • Requesting a package be removed Homebrew SD setup
  • Reporting a redistribution clause license violation for a rehosted package
  • Any other issue with the site or it's packages

Included Projects

  • SD Setup Blazor: The web application itself, written in C# (and a little bit of JavaScript).
  • SD Setup Manifest Generator (No longer used): A GUI authoring tool for generating a valid manifest file with package information and where to retrieve files for download. It has some quirks, and not yet feature complete.


  • The project needs a lot of optimization. For example, converting things to components and setting up databinding on individual components to refresh only what UI needs to be refreshed rather than entire containers.
