I'm switching to Kosmos in order to install emuMMC, I've read (in reddit) that you need sigpatches to use NSP's as Atmosphère doesn't support them, where do I get the sigpatches for Kosmos? Do all of them work for every firmware version of switch? I've been using Godleaf 0.4X until now and I want to use another NSP installer which one do you recommend me? Which is better/easier to install games through USB? I'm thinking to keep my sysNAND in 4.1.0 with a clean backup and my emuNAND in 8.1, so If I'm right I will need to install my NSP's through USB because my Switch will only read FAT 32 SD's if my sysNAND is in 4.1.0

Thanks for the replies

For the sig patches extract this to root of sd card: https://gbatemp.net/threads/kosmos-patches-es-fs.542455/
For the usb installer use this: https://github.com/developersu/ns-usbloader with this version of tinfoil: https://github.com/satelliteseeker/Tinfoil/releases

:)
Thank you so much! Another question, for using wifi on my emuMMC to update homebrew or my games, what's the best way of avoiding that my switch coonnects to Nintendo servers? I know about 90DNS but I've also read about "incognito", it's the same, how I install it?

Just use incognito, but because atmosphere doesn't allow writing to cal0 you have to do what this guy says:
https://gbatemp.net/threads/a-custo...phere-that-allows-writing-to-prodinfo.541609/

That is of course if you are not using sx os at the same time (i was :)), if you are then just use ingognito there and switch back to atmosphere.
Another thing, incognito isn't the same, it actually muddles your prodinfo, or something, so then your switch can't connect to atmosphere.
That's why it is better, you don't need to tunnel your traffic through 90dns's servers! ;)

I assume if you are updating games using wifi, i assume you meang using HBG. For this you definitely need the above patches for Kosmos! :D

On the page with Kosmos releases you can customize https://www.sdsetup.com what you want to download. You can select to have sigpatches and homebrew apps as part of the package, all properly configured and in the correct path.

Wow, really user-friendly tool, I didn't remeber that this existed, and when I used it a long time ago wasn't as complete as it is now

Thanks, now I have Kosmos with the patches working, now I only need to install emuNAND, then restore my clean backup and install incognito in my emuNAND to prevent my switch connecting to Ninty servers, thank you so much

As I've read, Incognito edit's my switch prodinfo and my switch serial to XAW000000, that way my switch won't never connect to Nintendo servers, right? Because if it connects and Nintendo sees that my serial is not the original one wouldn't ban my switch? I don't know why this works at all, but if people say it does...
Yes, I want to use hbg with the latest tinfoil (v1.63), I have to put something else on my SD, or I only have to download tinfoil from tinfoil.io?

:)

Best title installer is https://tinfoil.io/Download/ , and the best USB and network installer is this: https://github.com/blawar/nut

Funny you would recommend inferior software to newbs because of politics :)

Sorry... politics? In the switch scene? Very funny :D.
Anyway, I find the best success with the software i found but your newer (politic-free?) is probably better (Haven't tried it yet)???

How would they ban your switch though, the online unique identifier is the stuff in your prodinfo! :) Nintendo will want to ban you but can't. :D
