    I understand that at this moment we don't have 3ds like cfw, and we don't have guides like we have for the 3ds, which leaves someone like me looking at all these posts getting confused, I am wanting to do 2 things, edit save files for botw (since I have to restart I want to run through this as fast as possible) and to be able to play botw either an nsp or xci version with or without the updated files or dlc.. So is my best bet to do sxos and homebrew or to try stuff like tinfoil devmenu and reinx.. I have a jig coming but I can always do another method to enter rcm, so where do I start? Enter rcm, send reinx, backup everything (unable to use my 200gb micro sd without update?), load something like tin or dev, Install botw, play? I'm just lost on the steps and what is used rn, outdated guides or sifting through 100's of comments is giving my brain an aneurysm .

    I'm no expert so I can only offer advise on what I would do. First I would suggest backing up your NAND, but as you mentioned it's a new Switch on 4.0.1 the first thing I would do it check that your Switch isn't a new iPatched one and can accept payloads, if not then your not going to be able to do much at the moment.

    On the other stuff I'm unsure off as I use my CFW mostly to just play my own backups so haven't messed with NSP yet, however you said that you have to restart BOTW so I'm assuming like me you first played on the Wii U, if so then you could backup your save and convert it with the info on this page. though if you can't do that then this page links to a program used to edit your save on the Switch directly

    Stickied guide towards backing up the NAND? Boom: https://gbatemp.net/threads/switch-hacking-101-how-to-launch-the-homebrew-menu-on-all-fw.504012/
    Outdated guide to play backups? Boom: https://gbatemp.net/threads/guide-reinx-installation-and-use.512342/

    Note that ReiNX currently supports NSP backups while SX OS supports both NSP and XCI. As for save editing, follow the above user's recommendations. Lastly, you didn't mention that you have or don't have a USB-C cable to send payloads with but the first guide I linked you will cover that section for you.

    My restart is due to my first switch being stolen. In theory my serial says my Switch is not patched but yea I did want to test which is why I have a jig coming, I also have both USB c to c and USB a to c so I can try fuse gelee on PC to send a payload and double check if it's patched of not.

    As soon as things calm down a bit we'll have some decent guides. Too much happening to write a good guide right now.

    But yeah, as with all tutorials back up your nand FIRST

    What stopped me from starting any of the guides was trying to figure out why my micro sd would not format in my system on 4.1.0

    Hacking switch 101 is definitely the guide that teaches you the basics about launching payload (then cfw), using fusée-gelée.

    Make sure you underdand it, so when it comes to launch something cool like Reinx you'd not even need to read other tuto anymore.

    Paperclip is on my to do list, then backup, everything, is it safe rn to just update to 5.0.2, even with everyone saying wait seems alot more stuff works on 5 then on 4. And is reinx a good way to start with either tinfoil or devmenu

    Not so much safe always a risk
    But you have choices,
    You can either update stock to 5.1.0 via system
    Or
    Use hekate bootloader and choirdujourNX to boot into
    A custom 5.1.0 without burning any fuses..

    latest is 5.1.0 fyi

    But like you said .. always do a full clean backup before any modification
    And dont go online..
