    CLEAN UP SYSNAND
    Skip this step if your Switch is a brand new one or never ever been hacked.

    + Unnecessary steps but it will let you feel safer
    Access NAND using PC

    What you will need
    - biskeydump

    - memloader
    https://files.sshnuke.net/memloaderv2.zip
    Copy *.* in [sample] folder to SD and plug it in the Switch
    Run the payload [memloader.bin]
    Unplug any USB cable
    > Choose emmc line
    > Plug USB C <> USB A cable to the Switch and PC

    - HacDiskMount
    https://files.sshnuke.net/HacDiskMount1055.zip
    Run the tool under Administrator permission
    > Open Physical Disk > Choose Linux line
    > Double click on SYSTEM and fill BisKeys2 in the small table on top

    > Delete 80000000000000D1

    > Press on [Unmount] and unplug the USB cable
    > Press on [Power] button for 15s or so to reboot the system

    + Factory Restore Settings

    Stay OFFLINE
    > Settings > System > Factory Restore Settings (or System Initializing)
    > Say NO when asking Internet connection
    > Press on on the red button after all to restore.

    UPDATE SYSNAND FIRMWARE
    Skip this step if your Switch is up to date.

    Complete the system initializing
    > Connect Wifi to the Internet
    > Optional > Create a new account and link it
    > Settings > System > System Update
    > Update your system to the latest firmware

    Optional > Factory Restore Settings while staying ONLINE to make it completely cleans up.

    DELETE ALL WIFI CONNECTION AND STAY AIRPLANE MODE.
    > After creating Emunand, it must have NO CONNECTION.

    CREATE EMUNAND
    SD card must be plugged in to the system in order to boot SX OS Bootloader Menu

    > On SX 2.3 Beta, the Emunand will be created on the SD card, the SX's Nintendo folder is renamed to Emutendo so that it won't affect to the keyblobs that can wipe out data on SD.

    > Boot to SX OS Bootloader Menu (payload.bin) by holding [Vol+] button
    > Option
    > EmuNAND
    > Advanced
    > [Copy USER partition to EmuNAND] > [YES]
    The process will take about 30 minutes if the system is now empty.

    You will get Success

    > Back to the main menu (3 big buttons)
    > Turn on Emunand (on top of the first button)

    > Turn off the system


    UPDATE EMUNAND FIRMWARE OFFLINE
    > ChoiDujourNX https://files.sshnuke.net/ChoiDujourNXv101.zip
    > Copy ChoiDujourNX.nro to \switch\ in your SD
    > Download new firmware update
    > Place all files to a folder, fwxxx for example
    > Run ChoiDujourNX form Homebrew Menu on Emunand
    > Choose fwxxx folder
    It will load all NCAs inside of the folder and will ask you
    [x.x.x] or [x.x.x-exfat]
    Choose one
    It will continually analyze the data and will ask you
    > Choose [Select Firmware]
    It will read all the data from your chosen firmware
    > Press on Prevent fuse burning (enable AutoRCM) to turn it off (we don't need AutoRCM when having Sysnand for online purpose), Press on Yes when it asks again.
    If you'd like to have AutoRCM installed just leave it be.
    > Press on [Start installation]
    > [Reboot] > [Shutdown]

    ENJOY WHILE IT LASTS

    Great guide! You answered me the question I had about the emunand and the Nintendo Folder, because all my eshop games were deleted when booted into EmuNand. Thanks, I'll give it a try later!

    The 'clean up sysnand' portion seems only to apply if you've been installing NSPs to sysnand, and don't have a nand backup from before you started doing that (if you do have a clean backup just restore it). Otherwise it's unnecessary and could itself flag you for a ban.

    Also, for unlinking the nands, it's a lot easier to do the factory reset on the emunand. Saves all the restoring boot1 and unlinking/relinking account stuff. You just boot into emunand the first time, select factory restore (offline), and you're done. This makes sense also since you can backup and restore your saves on emunand if you want (back them up before doing the factory reset on emunand), while doing so on sysnand will get you banned.

    Also (as you say) it's MASSIVELY less hassle to just use two SD cards. Moreso because you can have the sysnand SD exfat (for easy XCI swapping) and the emunand SD fat32 (to prevent corruption).

    p.s. I wish there was a way to have SXOS boot to the bootloader by default (saving you having to hold vol+ every time)

    You won't get flagged (I did it for 3 months and I'm still there) or something because maunally delete ticketblob and error logs in the first place before factory restore settings will double wipe all ticketblob/error logs out. Make the nand more clean in official way.

    Yes the clean up step is for those who messed up with NSP and didn't have a nand backup up to date (the latest firmware). My method is to keep sysnand online, so either factory restore settings in sysnand or emunand is okay to unlink the two nands but we have to do that on sysnand regardlessly because of online activity.

    Anyway do whatever you guys would like to be and believe in yourself to do so. Because by some dark magics out there in theory we're all get flagged and will be banned soon.

    I will write one more step to keep all installed game/savedata on emunand. I did install emunand to keep all data for 10+ Switches and all of them are still playing online.

    Stay tuned.

    Only SX OS because it is their implementation of EmuNAND.

    Is the unlinking part totally necessary? I've only got one sd card and it sounds like a pain in the ass to constantly plug/unplug/rename/reinsert

    I have some nsp's installed, but I have a clean nand backup 5.1 (current OFW version installed)

    What´s the best way to create emunand?

    Restore the backup, format the sd card / system and create emunand?

    If I want to go online in OFW will I have to upgrade to 6.0.1?

    Remembering that I didn´t go online with the nsp's, only xci ...

    Thank you!

    Once in SXOX emunand can it be updated to the latest firmware say 6.2 when released without going to OFW?

    Can anyone explain the 2 SD card concept for me please? Do I just copy the contents of my SD to the other and have the OFW card use the "NintendoSys" folder with no XS stuff on there? The other would have "NintendoEmu" folder with .xci's correct? Any help is appreciated

    Yes, you can update emunand's firmware offline to any version but you have to backup BOOT1. Wait for someone to confirm if BOOT1 can be used on new firmware.

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

    Yes, just copy Nintendo (no need to rename folder anymore) folder to a SD. NintendoSys, NintendoEmu are for the same SD setup.

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

    If you have clean nand backup, It's okay to restore. Make sure you're on the same fw.

    Yes you have to update ofw to the latest firmware to go online.

    Hello.

    What i'm trying to do now is using the sysnand without SD (Just for play fifa online) and plug in the SD before going into SXOS to use the Emunand.

    Might it works?
