    Thank you so much for the files.

    About the ban, imho, the first wave of banning hasn't happened yet. People got banned because of connecting online when playing backup, some games will ban players straight away or after a couple of days such as Fifa, Doom, Vesperia, Arms etc.

    The bad error logs when running the first compiled versions of Layeredfs and before Stealth Mode/ creport/ Emunand could be considered as the first banning wave.

    In my experiences, if the N bans people because of unmatched error logs, there are a lot of innocent people out there will be got banned all together. Factory restore settings while being offline actually deletes the logs (compare to the save files in SYSTEM partition on the first booting up). On the other hand, I've been cleaning error logs myself all the time even rebuilding a nand from the scratch, updating firmware online then playing injected cert (1 cert) into xcis and play online. I haven't got banned yet since SX 1.1.

    If the banning waves are for real, the next waves are really fun to see.

    just my 2 cents based on my experiences of 100+ Switches.

    I have SX emuNAND but I never cleaned it, should I reset it? or it's good to go as it?

    If you don't plan to go online with emuMMC you can use the current (skipping the first two sectors that they use as signature), the clean nand thing are for Sysnand if you plan go online and let the emuMMC offline for homebrew stuff.

    What is the different if i create a seperate partition through linux on a existing sd card with like 50gb of spare storage compared to using sx os payload and it creates a partition?

    What is different between using partition based method vs loose file method to redirect ?

    From what i understand is that there should be no significant difference other than i lose my game right?

    I plan on using a spare sd card to create a partition for emummc.bin 31,276,924,928 bytes (29.1GB) then dd on to it. Look for the start or end sector ( not too sure which one ) then config my ini.
    Then again dd takes really long for me, should have done it last night but have the thought of by the time i am done writing hekate will be release LOL

    You can create and hide the partition manually, just put the correct first sector number of the emuMMC partition on the ini file.

    Currently the file method are broken and should be fixed on next version of atmosphére, so for now, only the partition based method are working, anyways on performance things the partition method are better because don't need mount files, are alreally mounted on the partition.

    Let me play with it on spare sd card before writing on my 128gb sd since my games are inside. Thanks!

    NO if you're keeping the fuse count
    YES if you'd like to go online on OFW.
    > You can go online with stock profile via bootloader if you'd like to take a risk (unlikely to get ban)

    Atmosphere currently doesn't support "files on SD card". Please wait for 0.9.1 in the next 6 days.

    Oh, that's interesting. Is Atmosphere somehow reading the hidden partition that SX OS creates, but can't read the files on the SD card yet?

    Mainly, this tutorial serves for the both emunand to work together.

    I don't get your second question. Could you please make it clear a little bit?

    Cheers.

    After we create the emunand ("emummc")
    can't we just use that tool which wipes prodinfo (or whatever) called "Incognito" on the emunand just to be sure?
    Also is it possible to downgrade the emunand using choidujourNX or even choodujour for PC? So to downgrade from 8.x.x emunand to let's say 3.x or whatever
    Cheers
