I have an hack switch firmware 9.2.0 and I also have my clean nand backup
It is probably basics questions but I will appreciate the help:

1. form my understanding the first step is to clean the nand (I will backup my save first) can't I just restore my clean nand?
2. Do I need to disable auto RCM?
3. By using the save files that I save, how much risk is to play them in the clean nand?

First, are you planning on using online play? That is the only real reason to use a clean sysNAND and a dirty emuNAND.

1. Restoring a clean NAND backup to your sysNAND is the best way to clean the sysNAND.
2. You do not need to disable AutoRCM, but if your clean NAND backup was created before you installed AutoRCM, then AutoRCM will be overwritten/removed.
3. If your save files have been modified, you risk being banned if you play with those save files online. It depends on which save files we are talking about and what you did to them.

Yes my goal is using online play
I didn't do anything to my save file I play regularly but on hack switch, but I want to buy the games and continue them.
Does there something else impotent that I need to do before I do this?

The problem is you cannot keep your save files without hacks so you have to choose between your progress and chances of being banned.

You can do this safely without getting banned. You will need to restore your clean sysnand and make a cfw emunand if you don't already have 1. Then follow the guide "tranafer saves from emunand to sysnand". Search it here on gbatemp or YouTube. The guide is by reclaimershawn

    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.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

  • 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
