    I have a Switch without a working sd card reader. I've ordered a new one but it wont arrive before August. Is there any way to access the nand like a sd or something? Maybe in rcm?

    edit
    There seems to be quite a bit of confusion about whats exactly broken. It's the part inside the switch, not the sd card nor a reader for my pc.

    For homebrew and CFW you need a working micro sd card reader. Otherwise you won't be able to load files which are necessary for hacks.

    The fusee exploit doesn't need SD, and you can use memloader to access the nand.

    Pretty sure both Atmosphere and Hekate are hard-coded to use the sd card. You'd have to compile your own versions.

    August? You got to be kidding me. Don't buy anything from eBay. Try buying one off of Amazon

    I'm not gonna do it for you. I doubt anyone will. At least try to fix it yourself and then ask if you run into issues.

    Ok. Why did you present yourself as someone I could ask for help if you have not intention to do it? I obviously can't fix it for myself.

    Yeah, there seems to be quite some confusion. I should have used "sd card reader" in the title.

    Buy a cheap sdcard reader or if your phone is capable of that, use your phone as a sd reader.
