Also some questions about Emunand.

Does it behave the same way SysNand behaves? In other words, to fully shut down still have to reboot into SX menu and shut down from there? Still have to use AutoRCM (unless I want to short rails every time I boot)... etc... basically everything is the same functionality wise, except I can be on latest firmware on the emunand?

Thanks!

EDIT:

For anyone looking for a guide, the process is quite easy.

1) Wipe the SD Card and format as FAT32 (32GB or larger SD)
2) Boot into SX menu (hold Vol+ on boot)
3) Create Emunand from there (hidden partition). (Will take about an hour)
4) Once back in proper OS launch SX Menu (via photo album) it should say you are in emunand (if cant boot make sure you are on SXOS 2.8 or later)
5) Download Switch update and ChoiDujourNX (look up a guide how to update, make sure you are in Emunand when you update). Process is basically just run ChoiDujourNX and pick the Firmware folder.

Thats it.

Yes. EmuNAND/EmuMMC behave exactly the same way as SysNAND.
And yes. For SX OS you have to reboot to sx payload and shutdown from there or hold power button to ferce shutdown it. Or you can use ams with proper shutdown.
With 4.1.0, you can use caffein to reboot to cfw.
But the first point still stands. EmuNAND/EmuMMC works just like SysNAND.

Thanks. Is there a guide to making the transition?

    But i have a medical prescription for the weed
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Still a criminal. Prescription from a doctor, which then had to be approved by the state, and they just legalized it here too for recreational use. But I can't even simply STORE it in my home
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Federally assisted housing. Still illegal to have it on property even though its medical and it's recreationally legal here.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    alright.. that sounds like a mess
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I hate conflicting and unclear laws
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Then the city just passed an ordinance no smoking weed or even using edibles in public. I dont smoke cigs. I hate them. But why are cig smokers free to smoke anywhere they want?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    what do you mean using edibles in public?
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    If i go to a bar and want to sit outside for a few beers. There are smokers all around me chain smoking the entire time. But now with the new ordinance, i can be fined $300 if I take even a single puff of my medication.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    okay that sounds bad, but what do you mean using edibles in public?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    are they forbidding to eat in public or what?
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Cant have it in my home, cant use it anywhere on the property even in the smoking area outside, cant go in my car because thats a DUI, and now cant even walk down a back street at 3am bothering no one or you get fined. Yet people can smoke cigs all over the place.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    No thc edibles in public is what theyre saying
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    no smoking weed, no eating weed products
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    ah
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    It so dumb. Small town mostly Trump Republicans. Like 3 city console members making decisions for everyone.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's what you meant
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    thanks for clarifying
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    yea..I'm sure
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I want to move but my mom, step dad, daughter, granddaughter, oldest brother, uncle, aunt, and several cousins are all here.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Kinda sucks to move and not know anyone. But I miss the big city.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    ok so you're in prison because family needs to stick together, gotcha..I wished my family was more like that
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    as in that they'd stick *more* together instead of less
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but yea I think either extreme isn't good
