    So, I accidentally downloaded (but not installed) the new update....
    Which led me to these questions:

    1. Is it safe to install ANY firmware update while using ReiNX AutoRCM mode?

    2. Is it safe to update to 6.0 in general, for use with ReiNX?

    3. How do I turn off AutoRCM, so I can get my console into "Maintenance mode" and attempt deleting the update file?



    Thanks in advance :)

    1. It'll be removed when you update officially as well as sending possible telemetry data that you have AutoRCM installed which may lead to a ban
    2. Sleep mode is not supported on ReiNX with firmware 6.0
    3. Remove AutoRCM the same way it was installed (although you can still enter maintenance mode with AutoRCM, you just have to send a payload first)

    ReiNX isn't working 100% with OFW 6.0. From what i can tell sleep mode isn't working as of yet so i'd wait a while.
    You can turn off Auto RCM the same way you turned it on. Also know that doing a firmware update will remove AutoRCM

    The latest nightly build of ReiNX had just fixed the issue of sleep mode with firmware 6.0.

    Rei gave a link for it. It's not GitHub.

    I updated officially with AutoRCM installed. I'm not even trying to be careful anymore. No idea how I'm not banned yet. I used NXShop to download a whack ton of games before I realized it was using my cert. I update ill gotten NSPs in SX OS and I've even redownload them. Short of using a dick pic for a profile I don't know what to do to catch a ban.

    But the date and time indicates otherwise. It looks like those haven't been updated in at least a week.
    Rei literally says it hasn't been built yet...

    I guess it might not had been built yet, as surmised from Rei's statement.

    But have you actually played online with any of these games? I've done the same as you, downloaded titles from nxshop, linked a nintendo account, gone into the eshop for fortnite, updated games within reinx, but not played anything online, apart from fortnite but that was in regular horizon

    No. I'm sure that would actually get me flagged for a ban. I'm just surprised it hasn't happened already. Then again, you would think using horizon to re-download multiple illegitimate games would throw up a flag too.

    I accidenttally download the new update too. The pop-up to ask me to update firmware is annoying, so I want to delete the update file too. The question is how can I do that (I’m even dont know what is maintenance mode).

    Another question what happen when I’m get banned, can I still play game in offline mode?

    To boot into maintenance mode, without autorcm on turn off system (not sleep) then hold volume up+down and press power button.
    (Not sure how to "inject" it into maintenance mode with autorcm though)

    Also im fairly sure only your account will be banned, not your console itself.
    so basically your account will have no online privilege if i recall correctly.
