    Didn't the data transfer also allow save transfers?

    in front of a screen...
    Yeah but this is on a per game basis.
    Still requires internet and a non banned cert is seems though.

    I see a "transfer save data to another switch" option. does that just copy your saved games between two switches wirelessly? ..no usb or micro sd card support?

    It moves your savegame to the other console and deletes it on your old console.

    MicroSD is already built in? Or what do you mean?

    oh, I meant saving to the micro sd card instead of the flash. my first switch died, and I lost everything since I hadn't subscribed to nintendo's online service, so I had no cloud saving. it would be nice to back up saves in case that happens again.

    they haven't blocked RCM mode from been accessed.... also the stuff about bricking was only if you have an ipatched switch

    I hope I can update without bricking my console. I can go without home brew for a while, and considering Joker comes out tomorrow, I wanna try him out!

    DO NOT update your EmuNand to 8.0 maunally using ChoiDujourNX, your EmuNand will boot to BLACK screen.

    Like the previous 7.0.1 FW update, if you updated your SysNand to 7.0.1, EmuNand will fail to boot, TX released a SX OS update to fix this and I assume they will need to do the same for 8.0.

    There is no reason to update your EmuNand on 7.0.1 to 8.0, but the game sorting feature would be nice.

    Updating SysNand to 8.0 is fine as long as your EmuNand is on 7.0.1, with every FW update drops, SX CFW is broken, until TX releases a new TX OS update.
    Like with every FW update, it is advised NOT to update, I'm doing this for research and education purposes.

    If your currently using SX OS CFW, then don't update to 8.0.

    If you use EmuNand correctly, you have a high chance of NOT being banned, the purpose of EmuNand, for me anyways, is to use if OFFLINE, here is where I play all my XCI's, installed NSP's and homebrew. If I want to go online, which is often, I just boot into OFW and do all my legit stuff. OFW and EmuNand are separate.

    Yes it is, I'm using a 400GB SD Card, half is XCI's and the other half is installed NSP's.

    EmuNAND is a clone of your SysNand, they don't talk to each other so just use EmuNand as if it's your official SysNand but in OFFLINE mode. When you create a EmuNand it's about 30GB is size, this is not wasted space, just like official SysNand, in EmuNand you have about 28GB of free space you can use to install NSP's as well as your SD.

    So my switch updated without me realizing it was doing it and now I can't turn it on in hack mode. I use Atmosphere. is it possible to downgrade my switch while it's off or do I just have to not play my switch till someone finds a way to update Atmosphere to this update?
