What is the easiest way to update to 10.1.0 as I updated Reinx to 3.0 and now I just get a black screen when I inject the payload. Im not super worried about downgrading so I dont care if I burn fuses. I dont have a lot of time and I just want to play a few newer games since Im currently on 8.0.1

Scared to do this as I'm not using emuMMC, just sysNAND booted Atmosphere via Hekate. Won't disabling 90DNS open up my switch to a ban? I want to manually grab 10.2 so I can use the latest Atmosphere and Hekate I've already installed instead of sitting back on 10.1, where things have stopped working.

You download the firmware update from a site like d* site, load up latest atmosphere and update via daybreak.

Move all the atmosphere/REINX files to another folder in your SD card like backup\.
Extract Atmosphere to root. Extract latest sigpatches (I'm assuming since you use ReiNX). Extract update to some folder in the card. Boot into CFW. Launch daybreak and select the update folder and install.

Annoyingly, I will have to update 4 SD cards later to 10.2. Not quite excited about that.

isnt it chourdjx to update? where do you get download files from

I'd be cautious using chourdjx on anything beyond 10.0.0. I recently updated from 9.1.0 to 10.1.0 using it and it didn't install the update properly causing my Switch to boot loop. I had to backup my frankenstein 9.1.0/10.1.0 NAND, restore a previous one (was on 6.1.0) and update that back to 9.1.0 and used Daybreak to update it to 10.1.0; finally copy my USER and SYSTEM from my frankenstein NAND to the successfully updated 10.1.0 NAND.


Edit: Only copied saves from USER. Didn't copy items from SYSYEM.

SYSTEM contains the firmware so if you did that, it'd downgrade your NAND.

You're not disabling 90DNS. Daybreak and ChoiDujourNX work offline.
