My old eMMC died. Luckily I was able to dump all partitions (except USER) and the prod.keys beforehand.
I got a new eMMC, but was unable to get its keys for some reason (probably wiped or something).
Now my problem is that I need a clean unencrypted USER backup, so I can restore my old eMMC backup. eMMCHaccGen generates a folder for USER that you are supposed to paste into USER after mounting it, but since I don't have the bis keys of the new eMMC I can't mount the partition.
Is there some way to generate a USER backup or do I need to get an unencrypted USER backup from someone else?

Ok making sure as people mix up eMMC with emuMMC alot
I bet. Interestingly what killed the chip was a factory reset of the switch. Initially I was not able to create a full backup because a part of the nand seemed to be broken, so I backed up everything I could and after trying a bunch of other things I did a hard reset which killed the chip completely.

Try using ChoiDujour instead.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages
    Gift
  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
