    In case this helps anyone else, I plowed forward!

    Some of this might have been overkill but I didn't want to take any chances: (starting point was a Switch on 5.1 OFW, SX OS 1.?)

    1) Grabbed the latest SDFiles
    2) Put the latest hbmenu.nro in the root of my exFat formatted SD card
    3) Updated SX OS to 2.2.1 Beta

    4) I heard that Nintendo might have started to let people (even super banned folks like me) update to 6.1.0 officially. So, I unblocked my Switch in my router and tried to update officially and.......... no luck. I'm super ultra mega banned I guess?! :)

    5) Booted in SX OS CFW and went into the Album and started the HBMenu and then launched ChoiDujourNX from there.
    6) Navigated to the folder that had the 6.1.0 firmware and selected it
    7) I picked the "6.1.0 (exFat)" option and DID NOT enable AutoRCM. I don't care about burning fuses.
    8) After the update was finished, I ignored the warning about doing something to block the controller firmware update and let the system reboot into OFW.
    9) My Switched booted into 6.1.0 and updated the left and right joycon firmware. (I have a 2nd set of joycon controllers so I'm guessing if I ever hook them in there, they'll get updated too? Who cares.)
    10) Once 6.1.0 was all done and completed, I rebooted into SX OS 2.2.1 Beta and tried some games I purchased from eShop and some NSP installed games. Everything worked perfectly! No need to 'phone home' or anything!

    Does it depend how we roll back? Say using the tool to roll back to an older firmware vs restoring a nand? I assume the latter wipes all saves. Also, if we roll back to a version that matches our fuse count, can autorcm be disabled?

    Yes, it will depend on how you downgrade. ChoiDujoruNX does not touch the USER partition but restoring the rawnand will because the rawnand also contains the USER partition. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but you can downgrade by just restoring the SYS partition. And if you downgrade to a firmware that matches your fuse count, AutoRCM becomes optional because you will no longer risk burning additional fuses.

    Not sure if I am doing something wrong or not, but I am having a weird issue with ChoiDujourNX.

    Whenever I load the homebrew, I cannot do anything other than exit the app through + or through the home button. As in, it doesn't respond to any other input than those two buttons. It doesn't freeze or anything though; I can exit the app just fine and I can also see that one of the folder names "moves" so that I can see the whole folder name. Just can't actually do anything:/

    I'm having a problem with ChoiDujourNX. There are always files missing, no matter what. I've tried multiple SD cards, different sources, and different updates. Does anybody have any advice? Thanks!

    Running on 5.1.0 (that was installed via ChoiDujourNX), would like to update to 6.1. Are there any XCI's that have 6.1 in them at the moment? Otherwise, where does one find 6.1.0 files to be used with ChoiDujourNX?

    Thanks!

    Who are you replying to? Maybe quote the message to indicate that?

    If it is my post (I will assume it is because you point out an OLDER firmware update thread), thanks for pointing out a thread that only goes up to v 5.0.2 in the 1st post. The last time that thread was updated by the OP was in September!

    And the 1st post in this thread only goes to 5.1.0, I am asking about 6.1.0.

    I was replying to you. :) The first posting indicates a source for firmware updates (with a conveniently placed *cough*), that cant be directly linked here - because that stuff is copyright Nintendo.

    I just visited this source prior to replying to you, and it also has the most current 6.1.0 as a zip.

    You not very good at following clues, but more clues you wont get. ;)

    OK glad I got that right then and your replying to me. Not sure why you can't be more direct and just say xbins. It is listed in the thread by name, I already knew about xbins. They link directly to Nintendo on their release web page. Which is just instructions on how to update your switch. So I thought that was not it. I did find it now though, because I tried the other source for xbins other than their website. So thanks :)

    You could have been more direct without breaking any rules.

    Because its in the first post. I dont know if you've noticed, but your entire enquiry could have been supplemented with reading. Which is the first goal of action here.

    As another insight, your question has been answered in this thread probably more than ten times.

    You change the way you operate, not tell us to give you answers more personalized and quicker. Because decency. Until then, we toy around until you've gotten the hint. ;)

    I was in your situation once. I got it on my own.

    I fixed my problem! I downloaded the update 3 times and extracted them all to unique folders in one big folder on my sd card. The program looked through the first folder, was missing some files, looked through the second, and found some more, and found the rest in the last one!

    This tool has absolutely nothing to do with anything you just said...

    I really need a solution to my problem, so I'll repost it with some more info:

    Whenever I load up ChoiDujourNX, I cannot do anything other than exit the app through + or through the home button. As in, it doesn't respond to any other input than those two buttons. It doesn't freeze or anything though; I can exit the app just fine. Just can't actually do anything else:/

    This happens with both loading the app through the HomeBrew Menu nsp, aswell as through the album. I've also tried 2 different SD Cards, one formatted as exfat, the other as fat32. And I've tried with both ReiNX 1.7 and Atmosphere 0.7.

    I thought that maybe I wasn't using the newest version, but I am and I've also tried redownloading the App, just in case. IT'S THE SAME DAMN THING NO MATTER WHAT I TRY:blink:

    You can disable it afterwards, sure, but then you'd just end up burning the fuses upon the next boot. There is little point in just enabling it for the update itself, because the fuses will be at risk of being burned each and every time you boot up the switch without autoRCM enabled.

    In other words, you can technically enable autoRCM for the update itself, remove it afterwards, and then just manually enter RCM each time you boot up the Switch, but there is no point in that XD.

    TL:DR: If you know you don't to use AutoRCM in the long run, don't use it in the first place. Just remember that if you don't, you have to manually enter RCM mode upon each boot.

    I have a switch with internal trinket I am on legit 4.1.0, are there any draw backs going to 6.1.0? Will I be losing anything? I have been away from the scene for awhile and I am now seeing this (choidujourNX) as well as games that require higher firmware, but since I have been out I don't know the answers to these questions.
    Also I have my sisters switch on 4.1.0 using the old choidujour PC method. I am hoping to get this answered before I see her this weekend so I can get her updated as well. Thanks.

    DevMenu doesn't work on firmwares 6.X so that's about the only drawback but since you're using ChoiDujourNX to update your firmware without burning fuses, you can just downgrade at any time so there's really no drawbacks at all when you think about it.
