    XCI is good for backing up games you own. NSP is supported by Atmosphere because it's more aimed at piracy.

    The default file system that the Switch supports is FAT32

    This has nothing to do with the jig. You format your sd card on your pc with guiformat.

    Even .nsp is good for backing up games you own. There is no difference between this file formats.

    I mean, I guess yeah, they’re just a file container format supported by FS that’s used for a bunch of things.
    But the ones containing pirated titles that you’re obviously talking about are not officially supported by atmosphere.

    Sx is and atmosphere both are the same with injections, except atmosphere is free, and buying a injector can be had for cheaper. Also, you can use system modules on atmosphere. You can't really mess up your switch using atmosphere, especially if you use Kosmos. It's copy and paste. Literally. How much experience do you have with both systems? Doesn't sound like you do honestly.

    Also, if you bothered to read unbiasedly, you'd see it was an actual question as to the real world portability factor. Good try in trying to warp things to suit your inside points tho. I'll give you credit for the effort involved.

    Also, grammar.

    Thank you for actually answering my question. I was legitimately curious about the portable factor of HDD use.

    I'm more than happy to continue this conversation in a more relevant locale. Either tag me in another thread or PM me.

    Can you hack games (use cheat codes) with FAT32? How do I set up FAT32?

    Dude, you quoted me and ask me again.
    1. Can you use cheats? Yes.
    2. How to setup the sd card? Use your pc and guiformat. But thats not the point here.

    and this is why i just see this guy using Sx os as a easier alternative than atmosphere

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    this guy literaly doesnt even know what fat32 format is let alone savy enought to set up his own sd by copying files overs needed for kosmos OPs every single reply post on here tells you as much. do you honestly think hes gonna keep up with sigpatches and system modules and using quarks to install games. as some one that runs both Os i can tell you that people like Op mite as well get Sx os dispate it costing more $$ as you say. it a easier solution for people that just wanna hit the floor running with little to no effort or technical savy i only dont care for Sx vs atmosphere debates im purely giving OP the best course of action for his especific case and saving the forum from 50 post from OP at every turn cause he doesnt know wtf hes doing to begin with

    So... Are we anywhere near a dongle-less way of booting CFW? :^}
    Really though, enough of the SX OS VS. Atmosphere bs.
    Gets tiring to hear the same arguments over and over.

    Might as well stick to the actual topic at hand.

    Nope. I use atmosphere.

    Yes. But on lower firmwares.

    I've read that TX team might have a new modchip to hack Patched Switch and Mariko Switch 2019. Maybe that will be a solution to boot up to CFW without using a Jig :)

    FAT32 doesn't change how the Switch works at all. You just need to use Minitool Partition Wizard or guiformat to reformat the card to FAT32.

    Are you talking about the method to launch hacks from the News applet or something like that?
    Or the warmboot stuff from sleep?

    The reason I don't know that much about FAT32 is because I just got interested in hacking my Nintendo Switch last week. How many GB at max do I need for FAT32?

    You can use any amount of gb for fat32. You just need to use a program like guiformat or minitool to format it that way.
    Then you google kosmos nx and download the latest one. Along with the sig patches. Copy bothe extracted files to the SDCard.
    Then you use a jig or paper clip or whatever and go into rcm mode.
    Then boot is late from the pc or phone and go into tools and turn on autorcm.
    Now make an emmunand, boot into cfw, whatever you want to do.
