CDNSP by bob doesn't work? I'm new to the switch hacking scene and have no sources.

Google. Or search for homebrew discord. They have tinfoil with their own settings and run their own servers with games so you can download them easily.

I have that tinfoil, but some parts of the game didn't download right and I am missing the DLC/Update. I don't want to retry the download and have the entire 16gb game downloaded again.

its called HBG. ignore these white knights of nintendo piracy. Can't link it or send you links, just google the name.
Yep,Ive been using this but some files have problems. They aren't even white knights on here lol, they are just bitter individuals that don't want to share the love.

A homebrew that directly connects to Nintendo's servers doesn't exist anymore due to Nintendo fixing the bug how they handle client/server CDN requests if you don't have a valid ticket.
For now at best there's this custom version of tinfoil in the wild.
That said, it doesn't quite always work. Games corrupt or stop during installation. Moreover, word has it that it's a malicious program that might steal your cert.
Your best choice should be to look for your games/dlc/updates on the web, place them on the SD card and manually install them.

So HBG can steal my cert? Who said this? I am pretty paranoid as this is what was recommended on here. What can they do with my cert?

Like i said it's only speculation and not entirely debunked and proven true.
Use at your own risk.

Reddit says that the gbatemp mod that said that has a vendetta. GBAtemp has done some questionable things in the past like letting a guy that stole tens of thousands of 3ds stay unbanned.

Get HBGshop, look at its config. There will be links to google drive shared folders with games, dlcs and updates. Use you browser or any other software to download what you need from that google drive links.

We live in a time when saying "Men can't get pregnant" is considered transphobic. It's become meaningless along with "Nazi".

To get back on topic yes there are methods for getting DLC and patches but you're gonna have to search for them, no-one here will be allowed to link directly to them. You can either download them as .nsp files and install them via Tinfoil or Goldleaf etc, or run a version of Tinfoil which installes them directly to your Switch. That's about as much as I can help you.

There's a place I could recommend as well, but unfortunately as has been stated already it would be against the rules to give any more information here.

I checked, and hopefully it's not breaking the rules to suggest this - if you feel able to let me know a way of contacting you outside of GBAtemp then I could give you more details, but I totally understand if you'd rather not trust a level 1 lurker. I'm just, in your own words, trying to share the love :) Sadly I don't have the post count to send PMs, but perhaps you can still send me one.

    I'm fortunate to have had some managers over the years who I've straight up told to go fuck themselves, and not get in trouble for it. Help that I've been on the receiving end of that as well lmao

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I luckily haven't had a boss in over 20 years, (independent contractor) but the people I do work for, it's pretty much like they my bosses, and yea some can be assholes. But there has been many jobs I've walked off and mailed they're checks back to them.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Bosses should yell at workers for mess ups they just need to know the difference in abuse and punishment
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I don't abuse or curse at my employess, I feel like waving the gun around gets the point across just fine.

    That's how all of my last managers have been in this job and my last one. Last time I had a manager where I was being micromanaged to hell and back was over a decade ago when I worked retail

    At my last job I (as an individual contributor, not a manager or supervisor or anything) used to be the one to tell my manager when I was traveling for work "hey I'm gonna be out of office between x and y dates, I got something on the other side of the country I'm gonna go work on"
