    Nintendo has officially responded to this with the following statement:


    I am accept no liability if your console or account is banned from following this tutorial.



    This tutorial will let you use any image you want as a custom user icon. I assume you already know how to use layeredFS and Hekate.

    You will need:
    - DevMenuApp exefs and extracted romfs (not romfs.bin)
    - LayeredFS working through Hekate
    - Donor title (Pokemon Quest confirmed working)

    Step 1: Place the exefs folder and romFS folder in Atmosphere/titles/donortitleid as you do with all other apps

    Step 2: Patch main.ndpm with the donor titleid.

    Step 4: go to \donortitleid\romfs\accounts

    upload_2018-6-21_23-11-16.

    Here the test icons are located, that DevMenuApp load in.

    Take your replacement image (needs to be 256x256) and replace one of the icons in this folder.

    Step 5: Put your sd card back into Switch and run Hekate IPL with LayeredFS patches.

    Step 6: Open your donor title, and the dev menu should open. If not try a new donor title until it works (Pokemon Quest works)

    Go to the account tab:
    upload_2018-6-21_23-8-29.

    Now click on your user and edit profile image:

    upload_2018-6-21_23-9-55.

    Now select the image you replaced and you are done!

    upload_2018-6-21_23-10-48.

    Note: I can't link to the dev menu leak here, so you will have to find it yourself.

    Don't do that. Ever.
    Nintendo will ban you for that.

    Anyone who performs this is just asking to get banned.

    This is similar to how you could mod your Xbox Avatar's skin color and it'd be on display for your friends and Microsoft to shut you down easily.

    Or why not remove yours? Why use his detailed tutorial?

    -Edit: You literally asked a second ago and already went ahead and copied his work? Da fuq?

    This is literally asking and pretty much shouting for a ban.

    What the fuck? You really copy paste his tutorial? And your precedent thread was just a copy paste from PRAGMA Twitter.
    You can not do a thread yourself?

    Yes, it is uploaded to Nintendo's servers. Also shows in games where the user icon is used.
