    So I've had my switch almost a year a now and I am always tempted to mod it, my only worries are that..1) I will get banned 2) I have spent alot of money on games and I am assuming I cannot use the same memory card for hacked and unhacked games? , trying to find an easy to understand guide ,seems difficult to find ., ive just modded my wii and I'm loving that so I cant imagine modding the switch is anymore difficult....apologies for coming across as a complete newbie ( just nervous , the switch isn't cheap and I just want to make sure I'm doing it right )
    Any tips or help would be amazing

    It seems that this exact question is asked by many new people so a new (same) thread pops up every day. Just search a little.

    1) Use atmosphere's EmuMMC - Search around on how to do that the easiest way is to download a copy of kosmos, boot up hekate and do it there.
    2) Download ingognito and put it in your switch folder
    3) Do what this guy says: https://gbatemp.net/threads/a-custo...phere-that-allows-writing-to-prodinfo.541609/
    4) Boot up EmuMMC, open up homebrew and setup ingognito.
    5) Now any 'hacked' game you install on EmuMMC is redirected to a seperate nintendo folder and the ingognito thing you downloaded made sure that your switch can't connect
    to nintendo's servers by, in simple terms, messing up your serial number and other shinanigans ensuring you don't get banned.
    You should be able to use the same sd card for CFW and OFW

    :D Hope i helped

    I've been doing a little bit more research, and I'm starting to understand this whole emunand more, and it seems using sx or sx pro may be best and easiest to use and get set up ..although it seems atmosphere is really popular ..I have a 128gb sd card I use in my wii which has all my roms on so i am assuming i can use that on my switch once I've installed cfw?

    How will you put a SD card inside a Switch? Those are huge.

    I wonder where you made your research (but good idea to do it), probably not here if you came to that conclusion. I’d recommend researching a bit more.

    Ditto on that, atmosphere emunand is easier, faster and open-source. Just like sx os it as an emunand creator on hekate. If ever the partition tables get messed up there is an option to repair them unlike sx os.
    Probably do more research, i want to tell you everything, from day one onwards but that would take hours! ;)

    Modding the switch is definately more difficult than modding a wii, its not rocket science, but the wii was literally insert SD card, run program lol.
