    ive been reading that AutoRCM can be troublesome with battery draining and all. Is it a different result wether hetake or sx os are used to install AutoRCM? I mean, do they install AutoRCM the same way? Are they different?

    Briccmii V2 has multiple advantages over TX's AutoRCM. It can display the number of fuses burnt as well as being able to load Hekate after a system update which subsequently lets you repair briccmii so it can be used to load SX OS without a risk of burning fuses. Outside of that, the two appear identical. Battery drain issues may or may not be more common with SX OS over Atmosphere, but its a no-brainer that briccmii is better than TX's AutoRCM. The only possible disadvantage I can see is that TX's can be uninstalled with SX OS and not a separate payload whereas briccmii needs to be run separately but that's as simple as swapping files on your computer.

    I think the battery drain would be if you spend quite some time in AutoRCM which is pretty logical considering it's just a temporary gateway to launch your firmware.

    It's even easier than that, you just put the briccmii payload on your sd card and run it through sx loader.

    If I restore the back up of boot0/1, would AutoRCM still be uninstalled? Uninstalling through briccmi would probably faster, now that I think about.

    Also, the battery drain, seems like if you power off, then dock the switch, the switch will power back on. For the fact that it’s hard to tell when the switch is off, I may stay away from AutoRCM. I’ll porbably stay in sleep mode anyway, so it won’t matter if use my jig upon initial boot.

    BOOT0 contains the RCM change.
    So restoring that will remove autorcm
