    Do you guys just use the account it creates or do you create your own next to it? Do you rename the account/etc without breaking?

    this is a similar aio package of cfw like kosmos and if u install it or check for udates will install the aio package. i just go to the add nintendo account and never use it again and it only does this

    That's user error for not reading what options you were using.

    Does this work on FW 9.0.1 and SXOS 2.9.2 BETA?

    I just ran across this: https://switch-xci.com/link-switch-console-account-to-a-nintendo-account

    They mention a way to do it manually -- essentially just replacing the one part of the user savedata that is necessary for this. I believe it would actually be 100% possible for a homebrew program to do that automatically without the unwanted extra stuff, but for the meantime, this is generally a lot less complicated than it seems.

    I'm trying to do this now, but I'm delayed by the fact that I need to get it to an emuMMC instead of system and my current system doesn't even have enough room for a dump. GoldLeaf supposedly supports writing to the SYSTEM partition, but it didn't seem to actually do it. (Probably the current version has something you have to do first, but there's no mention of anything like that in the documentation. All I can say for sure is I try to copy the file, it says successful and then nothing actually happens. It's probably supposed to show a warning and it doesn't, so my bet is they've set it up to require you to edit the settings to put something in for this.)

    This app used that info, which was from another thread here. It replaces 2 files. Either way you end up orphaning your saves.

    The point is a way to do it that doesn't use a closed source app that replaces boot files/etc and could potentially be sending other stuff from your system (PRODINFO?) along the way for all anyone knows.

    Go read the thread and do it manually. The app isn't sending anything out, just grabbing the account files. A quick RE or wireshark capture can confirm that.

    i ran the update option, which i don't recommend, because it downloads extra apps and changes the splash screen with some other unwanted things. i had to delete my atmosphere, bootloader, and sept folder and restore old/stock ones to revert. it keeps the linked profile though, even after you change the name and icon. i would just use the add linked profile option which should only do that. hope this answers your question.
