    So far I update SX OS to the latest version, got the license online. But before I start messing about with homebrew and NSPs how do I do a nand backup

    This looks long do you think SX Pro will release a band backup tool in the future

    It really doesn't take that long. Honestly, just waiting for the backup to finish creating takes longer than the entire process before and after.

    just search for hekate, download it and rename it to payload put on the root of your sd card. Boot Sx FW, in options ( right side) search for boot/launche external payload, then select (the renamed hekate).

    on hekate go to tools, nand dump and dump raw nand and boot1/boot2.

    note:i dont know why but if you dont rename the payload of hetate the console gets crashed.

    My switch is coming in the mail in the next few days but wanted to confirm I'm backing up the correct things before using AutoRCM. I read the guide and understand it but not sure on a few parts. For performing a full nand backup with hekate all I need is to backup boot 0/boot 1,raw nand and eMMC SYS? I see in the guide it says to backup Dump package1/2 under tools, is this needed also or just for good measure? It also talks about biskeys, I'm assuming this is an also for good measure thing? Sorry if this has already been answered but I've been doing research for a few hours and just want someone to confirm exactly the parts needed if I have to recover from something.

    It really doesn't take very long. Maybe an hour, and as stated. better to have a backup if you need it.

    It literally takes like 10 seconds to get the biskeys and tseckeys dumps. Not sure if they're actually used for anything at the moment, but that doesn't mean that it won't be used for something in the future.
