    Ok, I'm looking for something like HBG, but for roms. I recently hacked a friend's Switch and I want to set up Retroarch for him. Problem is..he doesnt have a PC. I set up Tinfoil and HBG for him so he can direct download games, but they don't do emulation on there. Is there an alternative or is the only way for me to download and transfer them for him?

    your not going to find anything that allows you to download ROMZ on the switch especially nintendo roms since it will get DMCA'D quick. there's a reason why all emus don't come with roms in the first place. tell your friend to buy cheap laptop so he can transfer them from there.

    I feel like the DMCA thing is irrelevant since we already have exactly what I'm asking about for Switch games. First party included. It doesnt seem that unlikely to me. But if it doesnt exist, it doesnt exist. Thanks for the info.

    you can do all that with a cheap phone ,downlaod files on phone , install ftp client on phone , create hotspot , connect switch , create ftp connection on switch , connect on android and transfer. take about 5 min to setup

    Theres nXDownload which allows you direct download any file to your switch
