    Does anybody have a save for Radiation Island? I need one for after the tutorial because every time I try to skip the tutorial or collect the pineapple the game crashes.

    I put CFW on my 5.1.0 Switch and backed up my saves so that went well! I have questions about the save dumps provided. Do we just put them in a folder in the Switch/Checkpoint directory and then use checkpoint to "restore" them on our Switch? I was trying to do it with Sonic Mania 100% but I got an error when opening Sonic Mania with the new save file. I was able to restore my original save just fine, but any help would be appreciated.

    Also is there a way to flag the Master Trials in BoTW as complete? I'm so sick of that part of the game, and just want to play around with the Master Sword.

    Does any one have a save file that has all the green coins for the messenger??I have 44 out of 45 coins and can't get the last one as they made it nearly impossible!!! Tried for hours and I just would like to get a nearly completed save if someone has one or even a finished one thanks.

    Hello,

    Is there any method to transfer my hacked switch save files to an OFW switch? I decided to backup my console to original because i want to play with multiplayer games ( super smash bro's) . I see the checkpoint, but if i use that i need to cfw my switch which cause ban. I have so many hours in my hacked switch games. I buy thats games if it will work and continue my save file.

    Thanks for your help!

    If you go on airplane mode as soon as you access CFW and only use it to use Checkpoint you shouldn't be banned

    not a big thing - just add checkpoint.nro to your sd card and launch it via homebrew launcher.

    the only big thing are the title ids - you can search for it via internet or you just start a game, quit game, start checkpoint - create a new save file (backup) and you have the folder with the correct title id. now add the downloaded files to this folder and restore that backup via checkpoint.

    you can find checkpoint at this forum:

    Is anyone known to have been banned by merely using CFW (offline that is) to modify savegames and then return back online without the CFW running ? (i.e. clean logs in hekate and regular boot)
    I'm tempted to go down this route since I lost an important savegame(Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate) but am somewhat cautious about being flagged since I do play online occasionally. I assume that Nintendo has no way of knowing whether a save was meddled with or not. I'm more concerned with them somehow finding out that one has run CFW on a particular system.

    Hi guys, I would like to know if it's possible to dump a save file ( zelda botw in my case) from my legit switch on 8.0.1 without hacking it in order to transfer the save game to my modded switch

    I don't think it's possible to dump a save from a legit switch. Unless Nintendo has an official save dumping tool available.
