Question Accidentally updated switch while in EMUMMC but it DIDN’T update OFW of the system to 9.0?

    So I’m a bit confused what has happened.

    I am on 8.10 and the next update would be 9.0. I was trying to start a game in EMUMMC too quick by pressing “A” and didn’t realize it asked me to “update” and I accepted the update .

    I tried to stop it to no avail, then it rebooted and I was back in hekate menu. I had the option to run CFW (SYSNAND), CFW (EMUMMC) or Stock (SYSNAND), here’s a picture:
    E3E38F2C-60E8-44A5-B4FB-6143B36E560F.

    The only ones I could start were CFW (SYSNAND) and Stock (SYSNAND). When I tried to start CFW (EMUMMC) it just returned me to the hekate launch menu.

    So then I started CFW (SYSNAND) and I noticed my Switch firmware said 8.1.0|MS 0.9.3|S.
    3F106D88-F2D1-4530-9DD1-0759DB064921.


    When I turned of the system and went booted up the switch normally to check my firmware it stated was on 8.1.0...? I’m so confused.
    4D79D888-A2C8-4288-812D-1565E6096819.

    Am I still on on 8.1.0 OFW Technically?

    My EMUMMC shows that it’s still active and available:
    B7C014F5-A357-4041-82AF-08A19CFFBA78.

    So my question is, does anyone know what happened here? Was the EMUMCC only updated to 9.0 and since its not compatible with the hack it won’t start?

    Is my EMUMMC salvageable? My saves if I didn’t save them via EdZion/Checkpoint?

    I didn’t try putting my MicroSD card into my pc, but I’m sure I can still access my games / game saves from the partition.

    So I just download and drag/drop the newer ones into the partition and I should be able to launch my EMUMMC?

    When I try to load/launch EMUMMC, it just starts loading it and immediately goes back to Hekate launch menu.

    Can someone explain what happened with the update not updating OFW to 9.0? Was it because I was in EMUMMC and it saved my ass when the update happened?

    Yeah that should work!
    Just make sure to keep your emummc Folder and your hekate_ipl.ini from the bootloader Folder.

    emummc & bootloader should both be on the Root of your SD Card. hekate_ipl.ini is inside your bootloader folder.

    Out of curiosity, why do I need to make a copy my EmuMMC if I’m not deleting it on the MicroSD card?

    All I’m doing is dragging and dropping Atmosphere, Hekate, Atmosphere sig patches and Hekate sigpatches onto my MicroSD card. How will that affect the EmuMMC folder and the hekate_ipl.ini file?

    Sorry for so many questions.
