    Hello everyone,

    I've been using SX OS for a while but I' like to move to Atmoshphere.
    I've alaways used basic function of SX :
    -Boot.dol on root SDcard.
    -Integrated NSP installer.
    -Some homebrews (ChoixdujourNX,retroarch).

    I've never used nand backup tool or anyother operation. Never created emu nand.

    If I copy Atmosphere boot file on root SD car, is it enough to use Atmosphere (instead of boot file SX).
    will my nsp installed will keep on working?

    Thk you.

    You cannot just copy boot file into the SD card. There are a few important things you need to know to get this to work:
    1-You need to install Atmosphere, not just the boot file
    2-If you're using SX dongle to boot into SXOS, and want to use the SX dongle to boot into Atmosphere, you'll need to install Hekate
    There's a guide, which I followed: http://3dsflashcarts2dsxl.blogspot.com/2019/07/guidehow-to-migrate-from-sx-os-to.html.
    It sounds like you've been using SX CFW without emuNAND. Once you get this working, I would use Hekate to create a emcNAND and run off of that. On my Switch, I left all the SXOS stuff in my SD card so that I can boot either into SX or into Hekate/Atmosphere.

    Hello WiiNinja, yes i dont use emuNAND, i'm going to read your guide.

    EDIT= Do you know if i can install NSP from USB flask-Key with Atmosphere? Information is a little bit confusing about it.

    Thank you!

    It's not my guide. I used that guide to install Atmosphere on my Switch. Good luck.

    You can use USB in supported homebrews (but no XCI loading obviously)
    I prefer to install games from my PC using USB or network rather than from an USB drive. It saves a copying step. Pretty much every title manager supports that, I use Awoo Installer with NS-usbloader.

    I also use Awoo installer/NS-USBLoader over a network connection as well. That' has worked out well; no need to remove the uSD card or "plug in" anything else.
