    About half a year ago I bought a preowned modded switch that has a lot of stuff installed. (I don't know much about modding). with the system I got a 256gb micro sd card, 2tb harddrive all original nintendo switch parts and a sx pro.
    As i tried to play pokemon Shield the game is just loading and wont boot it says it couldn't boot the software, Do i have to update my System version too play and do I lose all the things on the switch if I do so? my current system version is 5.1.0 and the switch is pretty old. I can play almost all other older games that I've tried

    Update the SX OS file and update, won't lose anything.

    Thanks for the reply, when updating to a newer NX do I have to boot into emuNAND or can I just install the newer NX? can't seem to find the side adapter to go into this bootup

    Ok thanks for the reply, Do I have to boot into emuNAND to update or is systemNAND okay? (I mean will all the mods stop working and lose stuff)
