    Not yet. There are going to be software based entries for lower firmwares. However, if you're on current firmware the answer is a solid no. Not unless a new exploit is discovered.

    Apparently mario and zelda work using skyrim cart as donor.

    FW: 4.1.0
    Game: The Binding of Issac: Afterbirth+
    Donor: Fast RMX
    Boot: No?
    Save: No

    For whatever reason, the switch thinks there's corrupt save data, meaning it's doing something, I just don't know if we can consider it booting cause it's not. As far as I tell it doesn't actually corrupt anything, but use checkpoint save manager just in case.

    Can I use cartridge games as the donor game? I only have Fast RMX as an owned digital game and Kirby and Pokken Demos. I have BOTW and Odyssey Cartridges though.

    Edit: I realized I wasn't changing the main.npdm file...woops XD Anyway I'm back to black screen again.

    Thank you - this worked fine.
    Looks like this had the "kernel-patched.bin" in the root of the SD CARD - where as none of the tutorials mention this!

    New
    FW: 5.1.0
    Game: Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap
    Donor: Stern Pinball
    Boot: Yes
    Save: yes

    I really do think that there need to be a clear list of what should be on the SD card, precise tools and tutorial needed as the method suggested here may or may not be working.

    So to answer my own question, I tested DK: Tropical Freeze, LA Noire and Monopoly, all with the Fortnite donor. I took the advice of someone in this thread (apologies, can't remember who it was) who suggested using FTPD to rename folders on the micro SD card to essentially 'unlock' each game as needed. For example one folder called ACE123DONKEYKONG and another with ACE123LANOIR, removing the name off the end each time I wanted to load it (so it just had the title ID).

    The good news is that after various console restarts and switching the actively used game around, it does seem to keep the saves for each game, even when all 3 used Fortnite as the donor.

    One issue I found was after loading a game I couldn't then rename it's folder, I'm assuming something to do with recently loaded games being kept in memory. I thought maybe I could bypass this by closing the gane, loading another game off the Switch (a legit one, no donors etc), then renaming the folder. However after loading the 2nd game, then trying to load HBL, I get an error then the console crashes. Happens consistently.


    Edit: Just to clarify a point for anyone doing the same, if you restart the Switch then use FTPD to change folder names before starting any games, that works fine

    Retry 4-5 more times. If it doesn't work, try with another Donor.

    That's interesting. Can you test if it crashes when you close the game and re-open it? It does that when using Octopath Traveller as a donor

    Is there another donor besides stardewvalley that works with Kirby? (I meant including saves)
