    Alright so basically
    First step: Create emuEMMC with SX OS bootmenu?
    So I free up some space (32 gb) before that emuEMMC partition so Ubuntu can format it as EXT4 later?
    But the problem is (as far as I know), that if I flash the Ubuntu.img to the card with Etcher it will completely wipe it (including my emuEMMC partition which I just created before).
    Or do you know a way around this?

    You want to take out img 1 from the sd image then write that to the partition.

    Need some help. Just got a 400gb card and split it and made a 110gb partition. But now I wanna change it to 30gb instead. How do I do that? Cuz when I select format the card it says it’ll all be unallocated and i don’t want that.

    I see. I pull the files out of the img with some tool and manually put them on that EXT4 partition.
    Will try, thanks!

    Use DiskGenius or partition magic.

    Hey, short question :)
    If I...
    1. write the L4T img to another SD card with Etcher
    2. insert that SD into my Linux computer
    3. copy everything from the EXT4 partition of the SD to a temporary folder
    4. insert my 400 gb SD into my Linux computer
    5. create an EXT4 partition before my emuEMMC partition with GParted
    6. copy everything from my temporary folder to the newly created EXT4 partition
    7. resize my FAT32 partition to the max with DiskGenius
    ... would that work?
    Or would I have to make the EXT4 image bootable somehow with GParted or DiskGenius?

    Sorry to bother you like this. :P

    Ok got it working so now my question I think I figured out but need confirmation is I copied everything over from old card to new and when in system emuNAND it doesn’t see the games so I have to reinstall them?

    Also I make a backup of my cartridge can I go online with that without being banned? Can they tell the difference?

    You got what working?
    emuNAND and Ubuntu on the same sd? If yes, please share your steps. :P
    I'm creating my emuNAND right now from SX OS boot menu.

    I think you don't need to install anything again. I hope you backed up all files from your SD card before?
    If yes, just take what's inside the backed up Nintendo folder and put that into the Emutendo folder on SD (I guess that's what it was called). Should do the job.

    There are many reports of people not getting banned with it, but:
    It's risky and if you plan on installing the dump as an NSP I would highly recommend not to as NSP installations will get you banned in most cases.
    Mounting the XCI in SX OS and playing online with that might be fine, but at least you're using a CFW which can also lead to a ban anytime so I wouldn't bother with that tbh but it's up to you. :)

    Oh sad to hear that you gave up on this.

    @TariqSoftDev
    I created an emuNAND from SX OS (which I can boot into) and my card now looks like this (screenshot from Easus Partition Master):

    emuNAND.png

    Where should I create the EXT4 partition for Ubuntu? On spot 1, 2 or 3?
    And with which tool should I do that?

    Wondering if it's possible to use a custom NAND partition as emuMMC. Repo @ m4xw/emuMMC seems to suggest so. Any guides?

    This is old now but I can't get the hekate tools to work for me and I had this guide working before.

    I'm getting an error when i try to use dd, here's my command and the output


    C:\Users\aaboa\Desktop\Nintendo Backup>dd if=emummc.bin bs=512M of=\\?\Device\HardDiskVolume6 --progress
    rawwrite dd for windows version 0.4beta1.

    Run it as cmd as admin and ensure nothing is accessing the drive; e.g using file explorer and etc.

    update I restarted Explorer and launched it right as I did and it looks like that worked for a bit but got "Error writing file: 87 The parameter is incorrect"

    @TariqSoftDev

    Thank you for your guide.
    I followed an additional step before it worked for me.
    I calculated the hexidecimal value and had to enter it without 0x.
    Then I RCM'ed into Hekate and had to use Migrate emuMMC before it could detect the emuMMC partition and it automatically enabled it.

    I also have SX OS' emuNAND as first partition, in between the free SD Space (Fat32) and the last partition is emuMMC.

    Working great. Thank you!

    What I found is that you can also you this command

    dd if=emummc.bin bs=512M of=\\.\DRIVELETTERWITHCOLON --progress

    So for example (check with dd --list) your emuMMC partition is the D: drive in the Minitool Partition Wizard
    the command would be like;

    dd if=emummc.bin bs=512M of=\\.\d: --progress

    This worked for me.

    Since you're working on some 2 SD adapter, I can go ahead and setup my second SD card with Android now, right?
    And one day in the near sweet future, I'll be able to have both up running in my Switch without the need to swap them but by some kind of hardware switch (lol) before each boot, right? :)

    I'm just wondering how you will be creating and selling them ... but at least you're in London and not the US so it's a bit easier for me to order things from you. :P

    I have had my eye on this topic for quite a while, aside from the new modchip being released has there been any new developments on multibooting? Is Linux still required? Or have there been at least parts that can be done on windows?

    Linux isn't "required" at all. Many of us that use it are really only using it for the dd command anyway. Depending on what you're trying to accomplish, Multiboot works fine using Hekate or Argon-NX. If you're using a payload dongle, many of them support switching between multiple payloads. It's not too difficult to setup a combination of Atmosphere, Linux, Android, etc. on a single microSD card, but I prefer using separate cards. To me it's easier. I have a 400gb card I use with Atmosphere and I've filled it to the brim, I wouldn't want to have to make separate partitions and cram Android or Linux on it as well.
