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

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.

    It could get banned from PSN but you can change your ID I think?
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way

    i dont have an sd card adapter but I have an usb sd card adapter

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Try Wood firmware
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    For your R4
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    It's old but it's the best firmware out for DS stuff
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    it says it only works for the original R4, R4i Gold (r4ids.cn), R4iDSN (r4idsn.com) and Acekard R.P.G.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    nvm it does support mine
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    but why choose it over ysmenu @Psionic Roshambo?
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    bc im stupid?
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    yea ik im stupid
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    good night
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Just give it a try, but honestly if you have a 3DS you can play DS games without a card just off the internal SD card
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Slightly slower loading but a bit more convenient
  • BakerMan @ BakerMan:
