    Ok so todays the day I can play my switch I had to wait till my birthday and I had a few questions.
    I won a SXOS and dongle from that giveaway earlier this year and I was able to mod my switch with it however I have not played around with SXOS 2.0 and have not updated my switch to 6.0, its still on 5.1.

    So few things I want to do emunand does it easily walk me through it?
    Should I update my switch to 6.0 first then do emunand or wait?
    What is the best software for SXOS to install nsp and xci for the switch?
    Have people been testing out emunand and seeing if its safe to go online in normal mode and just leaving emunand in airplane mode?
    How do I go about updating emunand in the future will there be a file I need to download to update emunand separare from nand?

    I might have more questions but I just want to do this safe as possible, I am getting smash bros for the switch and want to play online without getting banned but still want to use SXOS in emunand in airplane mode to play some xci nsp files.

    I gues on earth.
    Please, wait for real, proper EmuNAND. But if you (for some unknown reason need to do it), yes, it should walk you thru it. Just never go online again once you have "EmuNAND".
    Nothing need 6.0.0 yet, so you don't have to update. You can update if you want though.
    Everything works on any CFW. So tinfoil is the best (and DZ also isn't bad).
    It might be safe going online in OFW, but you still have 4 (or more) .bin files on your NAND, which Ninty can easily detect (if they want to).
    Don't know how to update EmuNAND.

    P.S.: Do a backup before messing with that """EmuNAND""" (cause it already caused some bricks).

    1. SX OS does NOT have emunand, it resizes the user partion, and is not entirely seperate from your system like real emunand would be. Do not use it.

    2. If you plan to pirate games, there is no way to guarantee that you will not get banned, it does not matter if you use airplane mode, DNS etc. Especially on 6.0.0, there is a lot more telemetry.

    Do not go online at all with a system that has run CFW containing error reports or any data linked to piracy. If you want to be safe, make a clean rawNAND backup and restore it every time u want to go online in stock.

    3. If you want to minimise the chance of bans, use XCI only, and never go online in SX OS, and if you absolutely need to install a NSP use ones that have standardcrypto (mkey) to avoid fake tickets in your ticketDB. Avoid tkey crypto nsps like the plague.

    As for installing files, i find DevMenu works the best, but Tinfoil (SX OS uses tinfoil in rommenu) works just as well for most stuff.

    Where is the guide to back it up? Can I back it up within SXOS?
    "have standardcrypto (mkey) to avoid fake tickets in your ticketDB. Avoid tkey crypto nsps like the plague."
    how do I know which one of the nsps have this?

    I doubt you've ever used sx's emunand as you said it resizes USER partition.

    If you want to try this kind of shadow nand, stay on 5.1 ,set up "emunand" and stay on this fmw, all new games still run with it. I said to stay on 5.1 cause everybody has issues with Sx os 2.00 and fmw 6.00. a couple of users said that experienced no trouble with Sx "emunand" and 5.10. unfortunately real emunand has still no ETA.

    should I have it where my emunand stays 5.1 but update the sysnand to 6.0? Wanted to try fortnite and pokemon quest and possibly smash bros when that comes out.

    Unfortunately according to the people using it, Sx os 2.00 and fmw 6.00 don't go well together causing freezes and frequently games crashes. You could wait for emunand fix with Sx 2.1 and meanwhile stick it to 1.9 that is more stable
