I lost my jig, but now when I turn on my console only with the SX OS dock (idk how it's called) it starts up with the cfw, why?

Last time I used the jig was totally necesary because it wouldn't load the cfw but now it works without it, I HAVEN'T installed auto-RCM I'm sure of it!

Is there a way to know if I have installed auto-RCM? maybe it installed by itself? I really don't know and my Switch's battery is consumming really fast (it went from 100% to 90% in 5 minutes without using any game or application).

My SX OS is on v2.9.1.

Sorry for my bad english.

If you press the power button and the console boots normally, you don't have autoRCM. If you use the SX Pro to boot a payload without a jig, you have autoRCM.

It's called an injector or dongle.
And if you boot into CFW with SXOS, then you most likely have AutoRCM enabled (whether you knew it or not).

And as McGuyver would concur, a paperclip can save the world and boot your Switch.
But be careful though, if not used correctly a paperclip can be dangerous tool that can break your Switch.

You will find undocked soon as you hard power down you will need your jig & dongle so I suggest for the time being if you’ve lost your jig & dongle leave it in docked because sxos has implemented a reboot into cfw when you restart the switch even if you use powertoolsnx or easypower it reboots into cfw and the same while in docked soon as you go to use it the reboot feature kicks in and starts cfw.

ChoiDujourNX enables AutoRCM by default so that may be why.
