    Hi All,

    I'm getting an older unpatched switch today. I've done a fair bit of reading and can't decide if i go with Atmosphere or SX OS. I'm swinging towards Atmosphere because i don't want to be carrying around a HDD all the time, and i assume we can just get a huge Micro SD card to install the games on that? How big is a standard game installed anyway?

    I'm wanting to play games online with legit discs and then play pirated games with Emunand, am i right in guessing that, since the exploit is tethered, that if i just turn off my switch and turn it back on to boot into sysnand that i can play online without ANY chance of being banned? Or are there things that need to be done to mitigate the risk?

    Any other suggestions/recommendations?

    Thanks in advance :)

    In a perfect world that would be ideal. But my wife was not too happy with me getting one switch, a second will not be an option :(

    Emunand is 100% safe to date - I should know with over 500 mods done. Bans come down to user error if dual boot not handled right.

    2 switches in one or have 2 switches physically.
