    Hey Guys
    I'm new to switch hacking, I have one that my friend gift me with Atmosphere but I want to know how can I update it (I think it's and old version of it) and I also want to know how to know how many hours I played in a game.

    If you want clean installation, just keep the Nintento folder then delete and replace other files/folder but I'm not %100 sure. You should need to research or compare your sd card and downloaded atmosphere/sd files pack.

    Yea, that’s probably because you don’t have a Nintendo account linked :/

    It's safe to connect my switch online and create an account ?

    If you haven’t done anything super suspicious (ex. installing NSPs), you’ll probably be fine if you go on for a short time to make one

    Tought it's Atmosphere because when I turn on my switch it says ATMOSPHERE or when I check the album it's marked NS-ATMOSPHERE.

    Hmmm? Do you have a folder called “atmosphere” or a folder called “ReiNX” on your SD card?

    You have ReiNX then

    I’m guessing you have the NS Atmosphere dongle, I don’t know very much about that, but I’m guessing that you can change the payload on it with that programmer thing. The best payload to change it to would probably be Hekate since it can chainload other payloads

    Yup I have the NS Atmosophere dongle but I have no idea how to change to Hekate or what a chainload mean.

    I did a bunch of random things. Now when I turn on the switch it says atmosphere. Now in the set ups it says 6.0.0(AMS 0.8.2) I did the right thing ?

    yeah you're running Atmosphere CFW now. NS-atmosphere isn't affiliated in any way with Atmosphere CFW, they just named it that to capitalize on a familiar brand
