You should now see 'system updates' if your Switch is running on older firmware than current released Nintendo firmware, from this new menu item you can go and upgrade your firmware.

If you wish to downgrade, scroll down to 'file browser', open the new location you added 'repo.xecuter.rocks' and from there you can copy an older install firmware package to your sdcard or open it direct (not recommended as its slower).

New The zip on 'sx portal' website been silently updated, only tiny minor bug fix, it now contains an 'empty' cache folder/directory.

If you had issues with running sx installer, mainly the listing of homebrew store being 'blank', then make sure on your sdcard you have an 'switch/sx/cache' folder as currently sx installer still writes a few files there.
Developer thought the usage of 'cache' folder was removed, but it seems it still needed at least for the 'homebrew store'.
