I have an old patched switch, I'm looking to do a dual boot with Hekate, SysNand would continue being SX Pro for USB reasons and EmuNand would be for Atmosphere. Based on the information I found this idea is completely possible.

Q1: Can the below be done? This is a banned switch, I don't care about online. I have another switch for online etc.
SX PRO - SysNand - 11.0.0
Atmosphere - EmuNand - 12.1.0

Q2: Or is it better to swap those two around for stability with Atompshere on SysNand and vice versa?

Q3: If I keep everything on SysNand for SX Pro, can i copy back over all my sd card games/saves after I format the sd parition for EmuNand?

I just wanted to get some clarification before I further embark on this track.From everything I read this is doable if I don't care about online.

I am sorry, I haven't been on Gbatemmp in awhile and didn't realize that there were some better topics on this versus what I would on reddit/gbatemp via google search.

  1. Yes
  2. Unless you love .XCI loading and HDD support, you don't gain much by sticking with SX OS
  3. sysMMC is the console itself; the SX Pro is just a means of sending payloads
