I'm currently in the process of downgrading my Switch from 8.1.0 to 6.0.0.

Following the steps to downgrade using PC: https://switch.homebrew.guide/usingcfw/manualchoiupgrade


I'm at the step for BisKey deriving by using this website: https://www.sdsetup.com/biskeygen

When i load my fuses or Tsec files nothing happens after running the pressing Derive.

I see that shchmue says the fuse file format was changed.

I ran a lockpick_rcm and got bis_keys.

Is bis_key_00 the crypto and bis_key_source the tweak key?


----

Got answers to my questions! Thank so much everyone. Please close this thread!

If I'm not mistaken the first half of the key is the crypto, and the second half is the tweak. At least, that is how hacmount handles it

is it possible to generate bis keys from tsec and sbk? I have a raw nand dump as well as fuse and key backups from a broken switch and would love to retrieve save data from it.

lockpick dump doesnt separate crypto and tweak. u need to manually split them.
first 32 digits is crypto, and rest is tweak
