    I managed to help him out in PM's, he got it all working from what it seems, hactool.exe seemed to be having issues on his end, not really sure why, but the keys generated were different, which is a bit bizarre, but I guess a weird bug.

    Was it an easy fix for the boot0 keyblob problem?

    When I ran the same BOOT0.bin with the keys he sent me, everything worked fine, it may be a system related issue *shrug*

    I'll try using cmd instead of the python script and hopefully that fixes it

    without the help of @SocraticBliss i couldn't do it. he did the most part of it.
    i suppose it must be an issue with system+python.
    i did noticed a huge difference in keys.txt that hactool build:

    in my case using the command
    Code:
    hactool.exe -tkeygen --sbk=key --tseckey=key BOOT0.bin > keys.txt
    i get this kind of output file
    keys.txt

    checking the file SocraticBliss built:

    good keys.txt


    now i have fakenews installed but i have to fix the reboot issues (switch just reboots after typng the evalfile usefulscripts/installFakeNews.js script)

    if the keys aren't right how come SocraticBliss did the job? i meant he did the keys extraction with my dumps/keys...
    there is something wrong with our pc or we miss something in the steps to dump keys ?

    Is there anything obvious that we could be missing/not have installed that we've overlooked?

    apart from python?

    You should be fine now, the installFakeNews.js script does a reboot at the end of the script, as long as it is able to boot into the Switch OS and you don't get an immediate error when loading the Switch OS then the procedure has completed successfully :)

    Ensure the following...

    1) Latest version of Hactool.exe
    2) Python 2.7.15 (including being in the path)
    3) Using your correct BOOT0.bin and biskeydump's keys

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head...

    I'm using my 4.1.0 savegames on my 2.3.0 console just with using checkpoint. I tried the games zelda botw and mario kart and both worked. Is there any difference at 5.1.0? I guess the meaning of savedata here isn't only meant for saved things like games?

    there's a difference between using Horizon OS functions to extract FILES out of SAVEDATA, and then using those same functions to PUT THE FILES BACK INTO SAVEDATA, vs just trying to use a SAVEDATA file directly from another console.
    and this is meant for system savedata mostly (which you cant explore with homebrew such as Checkpoint), I didn't even test it with game savedata...
