So my Switch is collecting dust in its original package and I thought maybe its time to put it to use.
Is there a way to run ReiNX or any other CFW without having the FW at all? Or my only option is to update to something like 4.x.x without burning any fuses?
Or should I just let it be and wait for an emunand option?

I ve been wanting to play a few backups but don't if its worth it ruining a FW 1.0.0 console(as I understand they are really precious) instead of just waiting for a more appropriate solution that takes advantage of the 1.0.0 situation.

Thoughs?

You can update without burning fuses using a program, but the real issue (I did it) might be about the game cart slot getting updated, we don't know exactly how cold boot will work, but if your gc slot gets updated by using a payload that doesn't support nogc then it might mess up your coldboot chances, I will say tho that I do NOT regret having my gc slot upgraded, having backup support is really cool and coldboot/emunand still have no release date. So what I'd do is backup your nand, update without burn to 5.1, then use ReiNX with the file that doesn't update your gc slot, that means either adding a blank file named nogc to your ReiNX folder or not adding the file, I forget sorry. Oh also you can install fakenews using a copy of puyo puyo Tetris Japan version then do a backup of that then you will have a restorable version to backup to. Sorry on my phone and kinda in a hurry so this is probably unreadable.

Thanks mate, you ve been really informative. How did your gc slot get updated? Accidentally?
