    I just did my NAND backup before installing cfw, just in the last step of the backup (dumping key files using homebrew loader) my switch displays this message, and i am unable to launch the homebrew launcher.
    Right now im on airplane mode, so i dont make any mistakes. Am i doing something wrong? Should i update?

    BTW, im starting the cfw (atmosphere i think) with hetake

    Exfat requires an update or modified system firmware in order to work in an OS. Look into ChoiDujourNX.

    But it would be a good idea to format the card as FAT32 or use another card in order to do the backup before installing the driver.

    Backup your Rawnand and boot0/1 files to your pc , i personally take the backup folder from the sd card and trasnfer that for safe keeping.

    backup the other files and folders on sd card if you wish
    Format sd card to fat 32
    restore the files and folders to the sd card .. Minus the rawnand.bin

    Then get your keys, im guessing your following my guide ?? if not take a look and ask questions there .

    Yeah, but a NAND backup should be the first thing you do.
    It will be split into parts automatically.
