    That is impossible on your firmware. Either buy a jig or make one yourself with a paperclip or some aluminum foil.

    I tried the aluminum foil, but I could never get it to work ;-; I tried for 6 hours straight.

    What shape does the aluminum foil need to be? I'll be back later because one of my aunts is in the hospital. Draxzelex, what is your Discord if you have Discord?

    If you have a correctly sized paperclip, creating a paperclip jig that works is very easy.
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/paperclip-rcm-jig.502087/

    After you use the paperclip jig to successfully enter RCM, you can install AutoRCM so you don't need to use the paperclip ever again.

    If a paperclip jig isn't possible, you can always purchase a cheap 3D-printed jig online.

    just get tx sx pro it less of pain to use and you dont have to deal with tinfoil or goldleaf that are forced on you by using atmosphere as it required formatting sd to fat32 limits you to only freely copying pasting files onto sd that are 4gb or less everytime you wanna add a game to your sd and to add more issues to that your forced to install every game and update on emunand or sysnand that by the way is a sure ban if you ever go online by accident

    Sx pro: let you freely copy paste files on a sd formated to exfat you dont have to deal with tinfoil or goldleaf for installing games ever as they just run off the sd in xci format and they have emunand and hdd support along with everything else you could wanna have. you can run games on your switch in xci format and if you wanna go online you just delete there entry on the main menu will keeping your save file still safe with little chance of a ban with 90 dns running on your internet connection.

    there no reason to use atmosphere other than wanting to be a freeloader yet still pirate games as team xecuter does will using the i dont pirate game i just use homebrew excuse that no one belives

    You kinda missed the fact that it's free, open sourced, not a shit company, doesbt steal people's work, and has every major feature you need... Including KIP/module support.

    Seems you kinda forgot the big stuff. Just had to help you out there bud. ^___^

    What is the adventage of the SX PRO dongle over for example a better (and cheaper) dongle like rcmloader v2? And in Atmosphere you can use a exfat card but you run the risk of corrupt the SD card and in SX OS have exactly the same problem because is a faulty of the Nintendo fs service.

    The advantage is having a regret of buying a free product and acquiring a fanboyism with it.

    I want to use cheat codes for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe more than getting free games. How can I use cheat codes without doing the jig thing? ;-;

    There's a lot of misinformation here. First and foremost, Atmosphere and homebrew applications are compatible with FAT32. However, FAT32 is not recommended on Atmosphere, SX OS, OFW, etc. because the Switch's exFAT drivers are buggy and more likely to cause corruption issues. This has nothing to do with Atmosphere.

    Also, if you install 90DNS and/or Incognito onto your dirty NAND, the risk of a ban is virtually nonexistent. Atmosphere also supports emuNAND.

    I should also point out that SX OS is the one that contains code stolen from Atmosphere, not the other way around. In summary, there is no reason to pay for SX OS. Atmosphere can do pretty much everything SX OS can do, only better, XCI-loading notwithstanding. However, XCI files can be installed as if they were NSP files, so it doesn't matter.

    It's fine to have the opinion that SX OS is better, but do some research before posting blatant falsehoods.

    How do I hack my switch without doing the Jig thing? Also,Lacius do you have Discord? I'm on Discord a lot. If you have Discord, what is your Discord? The best way to message me is through Discord.

    You can't. And probably there will be no easier method as now. You need to get into RCM at least one time to get any cfw (doesn't matter if atmosphere, sx os, Kosmos etc.) onto your switch.
    There are number of ways how to, but in the end you need a jig, a paperclip, aluminium foil, etc.
    There are some hardmods, which require soldering, some more, some less. But I think that also with a hardmod installed you need to use a jig/paperclip/whatever once. Jigs are around 5$ even on Amazon with good quality, been using it since October with no problems.

    Tl.dr
    There is no way (I know of) to get a cfw onto your switch without a jig. It is essentially required to boot into RCM.

    Correct me if I'm wrong here but even a mod chip needs rcm mode once to enable autorcm.

    Cheats work on atmosphere and sx os just the same. Also, don't listen to this fan boy. He's gong to mess up your switch with all this wrong info. Follow everyone's advice.

    dude just enjoy your switch already! Gosh I have over 80 hours in on the incredible ff7 mod omnislash alone there is SO much incredible homebrew already! Why did you buy a game console for??? To resell it or something?? You don't need this perfect cold boot solution which many have pointed out you do have access to something akin to it even. Play your switch my man!

    @KingChris825

    I'm just going to take a guess that you are under 18 and you cant buy the $5 jig off Amazon. I wouldn't reccomend you doing aluminum foil because you could damage something if you do it wrong.

    Just tell them to buy you a jig.

    I'm kinda old school I'm used to using a device to enable a hack.

    Bend a damned paperclip. Sacrifice it for the grater good. I used one for a month before getting a jig for 1$ off eBay.

    Man, I can't stand the back and forth of bullshit. Everyone here has selective amnesia and is a complete retard when it comes to the other side. You will never get a constructive conversation for more than a few posts at a time on the Temp when you are talking Atmo VS SX.. You get the Atmo guys acting like victims, but they are always the ones derailing the SX threads... Then you get the SX guys Stealing code and implementing it in a complete polished and functional way! They didn't steal it all. And they were first. Once there wasn't enough Gateway articles to whine about the GateHaters found a new thing to bitch about and turned in to Atmo-rons.. And the Atmo guys always skate right past USB loading. By far the best exclusive feature and a total deal breaker if it's not there.

    Atmo is OK too.. I use both honestly. I Quad Boot But because of USB Loading, I mostly use SXOS... Mostly...

    The SX dongle is not superior to other dongles. Kind of sucks.. Except it was first.. It uses capacitors instead of batteries. Good in theory but they loose their charge. Get any other dongle IMHO. I like my Dragon Injector the best...

    Use FAT32 on your SD and ExFAT on your HDD. No issues. Ever.

    And for the Jig. No paperclip. Use a copper wire from a Ethernet cable.... Much safer for the pins.

    1. Atmosphere was first.
    2. SX OS is heavily comprised of stolen Atmosphere code.
    3. The SX dongle isn't remarkable.

    1. I ran Atmo Day 1.. It was not what it is today.. SX was fully functional. XCI always was better than NSP...
    2. I acknowledged that. More pirated code stolen from pirates that intend to pirate with it. I don't care. SX brought US a fully functional well polished product. Pirates complaining about pirating. LOL That's like me bitching at you for smoking weed.
    3. No. It sucks. But it was first, I once again prefer the Dragon Injector.
