Hi!
I have an (older) RCMloader and a first gen Switch, which is modded with SX OS.
Now, I'd like to keep SX for the occasional USB loading but would also like to use Atmosphere.

I've read many tutorials and they're all about fully migrating from one to the other, not really dual booting.
Is there any way to dual boot both of them using the current SX emunand?
If so, how?

Thanks!

If your emunand version is compatible with SX, then of course. It’s just MUCH easier if your emuMMC is partition-based. For file-based, you’d have to move and rename your nand dump files every time you want to switch between the two...

@Hayato213 technically, it CAN boot file-based, because an eMMC dump is an eMMC dump. They are just named differently and in a different folder. Move/rename it, and it works just fine. Not practical or portable though...

hekate-made hidden partition is indeed a problem with SX though.
