    I can't confirm it because i'm not SX user but I doubt it, they need to change the keys on their code to make it working again.

    Nothing, they can waste sciresm/hexkyz time as much as they want.

    There are other changes that need reverse engineering, so it's not over yet. SciresM will probably be busy for a week

    Took the risk and it's indeed working! :)
    Sysnand 8.1.0
    Emunand 8.0.1

    Sysnand only boots without autorcm.

    I didn't read fine, I think that you wanna update your emunand, don't do this of you can't run SX OS before the next version.

    Uh, no? Just did it with SX OS and stock 8.1.0 firmware no longer boots. Let me guess, no autorcm

    Yeah, no autorcm. Choosing the boot stock firmware from the sx bootloader won't work.

    That's a big leap from working, to won't work my dude. You might want to lead with that / clarify in your original post. Yes you can boot it, but it definitely breaks AutoRCM.

    My original post was this
    And I was referring to exactly that when I say it works. I was not talking about autorcm/booting sysnand using sx bootloader.

    Not trying to put you down man, I'm just stating AutoRCM is a big part of dual booting firmware. Some of us boot with our phones in quick succession. You might just want to include that disclaimer because not everyone likes to carry a Jig around with them everytime they wish to dual boot, you know what I mean? It's partially working, meaning emunand / sysnand switching now requires a jig if you wish to dual boot.

    I get what you mean but I was talking about if emunand was working after updating sysnand to 8.1. And it is. I did not state everything else was working. I'll still put the disclaimer. Don't want anyone misunderstanding what I was talking about.

    Can someone explain what people mean with them "burning fuses" ? Do they literally brick their system every time they update stuff more and more ?
    I dont have a hacked switch obviously i sadly never was able to to begin with but im following stuff :)

    Thanks

    Hell
    The Tegra X1 has many tiny “fuses” which can be programmed and used for a variety of things. The Switch uses them for storing hardware information, ipatches, and anti downgrade, and some other stuff.

    The anti downgrade (which people usually are referring to when they say “burning fuses)works by when booting the system, pk1ldr (initial bootloader) checks the ODM7 fuses to make sure the correct amount are burnt, if too few are burnt it’ll burn some, if too many are burnt it’ll immediately panic and go to a black screen

    I have a sincere question (Please go easy on me as I am very new to Switch modding)

    I bought a Switch yesterday evening. I have a modded NN3DS with CFW/NTR, so I have at least basic understanding of setting up some of the software.
    My ORIGINAL plan was to look through some of the beginner/support stuff to find out where to start.
    My son was attempting to format the SD card and said that the system required an update before using the card so he updated to 8.1. (It's actually my fault for not specifying NOT to update)
    I'm not even sure what firmware it was on because I only had a chance to setup the initial connections.
    From what I am reading, I seem to be screwed until 8.1 is patched for CFW.
    But in the meantime, can any of you direct me to some decent links here so I can look into efficient steps and programs starting off for CFW/Homebrew?
    That way I'll at least have what I need and know what steps to take once 8.1 is cracked.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    1. Not nice to call your 7 year old stupid :P
    2. Boot into your payload / bootloader and uninstall autoRCM
    3. Wait for updated patches. Your switch isn't broke, just not able to use modified functions until new firmware patches are released, or you downgrade using Choidujour / use EmuNAND.

    EDIT: Now that I think of it the update should have automatically disabled autoRCM unless you re-installed it. Should just boot normal without Jig. O.o

    If all else fails,
