My situation is a little confusing. I think I can still pull off not being banned, but I think I will need help from people that know how atmosphere works regarding how it can potentially leave traces on my switch that could be detected.


My situation is as follows.

-I made a NAND backup that is on 4.1.0 (no exFAT).

-After that, I connected the switch to the internet to download the exFAT update, so the last time my switch connected to the Nintendo's servers it was 4.1.0 exFAT. I didn't make a new backup after that and my switch never saw the light of the internet again after this.

-On CFW I accidently burned my fuses up to whatever 7.1.0 fuses are. Again, it didn't connect to the internet.


So, the situation is as follows. I want to restore my NAND backup but want to minime my chance of being banned. So I was thinking of doing the following:

1) Bypass fuse check with AutoRCM and Restore 4.1.0 (no exFAT) and then update to 4.1.0 (exFAT) using ChoiDujourNX.

2) Bypass the fuse check to boot into 4.1.0 exFAT, connect to Nintendo servers and then update to the most recent system version.

3) After updating and booting up, I'd like to re-enable the fuse check to burn my fuses up to the most recent system release.


So, my questions are:
Q1) Does HorizonOS logs when an attempt to boot into the system is made with the wrong fuse check? I mean, if I update to 8.1.0 but the fuses count is still at 7.1.0's count would HorizonOS know and log? Or if I boot into 4.1.0 with fuse count 7.1.0 would it be logged somehow? Should I disable AutoRCM right before I connect to the internet to system update my switch to the latest version by using the Nintend's Servers so the my fuses are burned to the latest count as expected at the right time or won't it matter if it is burned later?

Q2) For using ChoiDujourNX I will need to use CFW to access the Homebrew from within 4.1.0, right? As atmosphere is now, if I just use Rekado to boot atmosphere to use Homebrew would any trace be left on my system or atmosphere as it is now doesn't (hopefully) any traces behind unless I do some reeeealy shade stuff from within it?
I mean, if I want to use Homebrew, what steps should I be aware of to not leave traces?

Q3) Anymore tips besides good luck?

Was getting the exFAT driver prior to CFW or it was on CFW?

Prior to CFW, but after my backup, so when I restore my backup I will be back to non-exFAT 4.1.0. I think it will be safer to use ChoiDujourNX to update 4.1.0 to the exFAT version otherwise Nintendo may check that I will be asking tto update AGAIN to the exFAT version .

You probably would get flagged as it doesn't match with what Nintendo has on their server, not 100% sure if they would ban you for this.

    @Veho the magic knob to increase was the green new deal ,and the keystone pipeline

    Did they shut down the pipeline?
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And it's no longer working?
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    75% built and it got shut down
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Was it ever operational?
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Costing a ton of jobs, environmental disaster, loss of a ton of money
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They still ship the oil, just in trucks instead of a pipe
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Okay so the pipeline (extension) was never operational, never worked, and shipping that oil was never cheaper because of it.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They do this stock investment thing Veho called futures trading
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    It's complex but yeah in spite of it not being operational (yet) they had planned on it being so
  • Veho @ Veho:
    They do this thing called "counting their chickens before they hatch".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's the same as when publishers claim piracy is costing them billions in "projected" earnings.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Well knowing where you are going is usually a good thing
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Looking before jumping is also a good thing.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    If you follow the money the truth is usually there
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    A strong hunch of mine is that a cheap oil pipe from Alaska would have hurt the middle East and lowered prices. If I was a big investor in oil, I would probably not want that at all.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah and the truth is oil companies reported record profits yet there's no room to reduce oil prices at the pump because, um, economy.

    Well Biden said he was going after the big oil companies 🥰

    Looks like he failed.

    His record seems to imply otherwise, but politicians say the opposite of what they really mean
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Like most politicians, he
    has so many corporate hands up his ass it's a wonder he could move at all.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I'm sorry, that's not bribery, that's "lobbying".

    Or when a foreign country does it, it's "investing" in your "equity firm".
