Your keys.txt aren't from lockpick_rcm right?

Ok I figure out how to use it with an other key, it's working

Of course for games like am2r or other non official games I still can't know if they are safe but for the officials one It's cleared

On this subject, if your using emunand, your probly 99.9% safe anyway.
As for malicious homebrew/games bricking hardware , Ive yet to hear of one that bricks hardware so far. If you can reference a single one that destroys your battery/chips etc or anything on a hardware level, Id be interested to know.

No one is going to cite that for you, for obvious reasons. Just know that it is possible to hardware brick your switch via homebrew.

I dont doubt the possibility, but every malicious app ive known to be released, has been fixable by restoring your nand, or recreating emunand.
You have known/know of homebrew that constantly damages hardware??
I don’t expect you to name it. Confirmation would still be news to me. Even if you ran an program designed to overheat your switch, it has a safety net that shuts it down at a certain point.

A good option is to check its file hash (SHA1/SHA256, etc) against an already known to be good/safe one. If the file you are checking doesn't match then you can avoid it and search for one that does match.

Considering that AM2R is a homebrew and that its compilation has been done by some "indie gamers" (no offense meant), then they can provide a valid hash to check against.
