    Everyone who installed it did. Also Eevee doesn't brick it's only Pikachu that bricks.

    After reading about all these bricks, I think I'm long overdue to create myself a NAND backup in case it happens to me. I'm currently on FW 6.0.0 using SX-OS 2.2.1 BETA. What would be the best way for me to create my backup? Using SX-OS itself? or a different software?

    I'm pretty sure on the SX OS bootloader you can backup the NAND there.

    It's only Pikachu that bricks. Eevee is harmless.

    Nope! Cause i don't install NSPs for the most part, & if i did it would be from a trusted uploader.

    Installing it doesn't brick your system. Anyone who RAN it bricked, this includes xci conversions.

    Recoverable. You can just run the rcm exploit and restore from a nand backup.

    Thank you for letting me know - I've just finished dumping the raw NAND, although, when I clicked Advanced Options, I noticed User partition and another partition were not part of the dump by default. Do I require these ones as well? or just the BOOT files and raw nand?

    UPDATE: Legit Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu NSPs are starting to drop. You can lower you guards but please be careful of what you download and always have a NAND backup incase a fake one pops up.

    For those of you who don't know, the Let's GO Pikachu NSP was made to deliberately brick the Switch it's ran on. It's purpose was, apparently, to mess with the people on DU

    Oh..you are VERY funny asking if people got their switch bricked.
    You were spamming and trolling over at D-U for like a day and a half posting fake pokemon lets go games
    and from my understanding you were also spreading around the brick code eevee nsp.

    By the fact that I personally haven't seen any more threads from you means you prob were banned/IP banned.
