    I have not done any modifications to my Switch yet, but I have been wanting to to use Retroarch on it. Is it generally safe, or am I better off getting a second console and modifying that instead?

    Or just don't go online and use as much emulation as you want

    Just use Lakka, it runs from RCM, totally outside Horizon, and should leave no traces on your NAND. It's like running a Linux LiveCD on your PC... your Windows installation (or in the Switch's case, Horizon OS) should have no clue something else ran (and Lakka is actually a Linux distro). Unlike homebrew (like RetroNX), which runs within Horizon, and can leave traces in your NAND, such as leaving custom error logs.

    The only issue is that audio only currently works via Bluetooth.

    I will consider Lakka when the audio still runs through my speakers.
