    Then what you need is emunand.

    People do say that if you're just using homebrew, no installed nsps (not even homebrew ones) and no piracy and no custom profile pictures and no online game cheats/mods, then you should be safe going online using atmosphere and not getting banned. I'm not vouching for it personally tho.

    Would my prodinfo.bin be in my part of a nand dump and how do you view the contents of it? My nand dump is a nand.bin.00

    Never mind, but I went to restore the prodinfo.bin from the part of a dump and it doesn’t change it back, I did the dump before I did incognito but it wasn’t completed

    Nope same effect until you restore your original prodinfo.

    Open up your nand dump with hacddiskmount. You should see prodinfo.bin and prodinfofo.bin. No idea what is the second one but just restore both and my switch booted up with the right serial

    Hell
    prodinfof contains some factory logging stuff (ex.when the system was made/tested, what tests succeeded or failed, etc) and other miscellaneous stuff (ex. that wireless E-Label thing in system settings). I don’t think it’s necessary for the system to boot, but I haven’t tested it myself

    Very weird indeed, i mis-placed my incognito backup when i start a fresh sd card. So the only way to it as far as i know was to do a nand restore or find the prodinfo and restore manually. First i did was restoring only the prodinfo.bin only from my 4.1.0 clean nand backup. Surprisingly, my switch stuck on the "switch" icon. After multiple attempts of restoring the same file, i given up and flash the other file which is prodinfofo.bin together with prodinfo. Well that worked and i have no idea why :rofl2:

    So glad that i didnt do a nand restore but at least i have a backup

    Did you put both on your sd card? and then did you go into incognito on your switch and restored it?

    Nope i didn't use incognito to restore because simply i forget that option was there ( kinda stupid i know )

    I think incognito will restore the prodinfo.bin as long as the naming was right and it was in the right folder.

    I made the yolo decision to flash it back by mounting my nand on harddiskmount (Dangerous). But had to do some trial and error since there is no guide out there to do this. Soft brick my switch a few times but get out of it after flashing both prodinfo and proinfofo

    Ok. Why would mounting the nand be dangerous? Also do you mean hacdiskmount instead of harddiskmount? Did it work, and if it did, which one did you flash to make it work?

    I only have a part of a nand dump 3gb and it still has the prodinfo.bin and prodinfof.bin. Where could I definitely get a guide for doing this? :yayswitch:

    I believe the main drive behind this were people using 90DNS, and installing a game via Tinfoil via a remote location, and getting really poor speeds due to the 90DNS servers residing in France(?).

    Does anybody know if this messes up amiibo usage? Primarily emuiibo usage?
