I purchased an unpatched switch that was already jailbroken with an inject payloader and have absolutely no idea how to update it. Asked the guy who sold me the switch how to do updates on the firmware but he never replied. I'm scared of accidentally bricking the switch or whatever I feel like I'm way over my head with doing this whole thing completely blind.

here's an imgur link for the files on the sd

1) no cfw supports 13.0 yet, so the highest you can go and still use cfw is 12.1

2) find out how to update the payloads on your payload injector.

3) when updating the process goes as followed. Update cfw, update sig patches (if you're using atmosphere), update firmware.

1. What CFW are you on?
2. Do you have an emuNAND or not?
3. What payload are you using? (Hekate, fusee(-primary) etc)

The steps I usually do once (I inject Hekate and boot into Atmosphere emuNAND) once both Hekate and Atmosphere get updates that support the latest firmware:
- update Hekate
- update Atmosphere
- update sigpatches
- download latest Switch firmware on PC (you'll have to search for that on your own)
- put it on my Switch SD card
- boot into emuNAND through Hekate
- open Hbmenu, use Daybreak to update to latest firmware

After all that, I sometimes update the FW on my sysNAND through the usual Nintendo process.

3. checking the files on the sd it uses hekate and fusee (which apparently is now outdated?)

setting , last one down, it should say what firmeware and atmosphere you are running ,

personaly here what i would do ; delete every folder exept nintendo

download
https://github.com/CTCaer/hekate/releases

unzip on sd card

download
https://github.com/Atmosphere-NX/Atmosphere/releases

unzip on sd card (dont forget fuse.bin )

find Sig patches *cough* ITotalJustice/patches

boot hekate through payload (tegraRCM or other)

boot fuse.bin

profit .

I am currently trying to update my switch. can you please actually explain each step here, the "don't forget fuse" etc and the sig patches situation. I've put those things on the card in the right places and now I have literally no option to boot anything on henkaku.

On the switch menu, go to settings > System
Should be something like "12.0.1 AMS 0.19", where 12.0.1 would be the Switch's firmware version and AMS 0.19 the indication you're running atmosphere plus its version number.

Also, there might be an "M" or an "E" on that same string. Don't worry too much about the "M", but an "E" means it's running on emuNAND

LOL i psoted this in another tread thinking it was this one ;

Edit : forgot , Keeping the nintendo folder will keep your game installed ion the sd card , or else you're gonna have a little cloud and the game wont be on your card , all games files are in the "nintendo" folder , wich is the only one you want to keep to not reinstall every game .(also why i launch crash , as it was on the switch not the sd card , i didnt want to backup my 300GB+ nintendo folder just to show you lol )
