    Hi !
    I would like to by Animal Crossing (and a Switch by the way) but we can't saving on external support or on the cloud :(
    Is there, as on 3DS, a system for backing up saves of games using a homebrew + tool, and if so, which ones ?
    I'm looking for something "simple" to use
    Do we have to use a particular Switch model or can we install "homebrew" on any console ?
    Thank for your help !

    I see you don't actually own a switch and the person above didn't understand you but here's the thing:
    the new (patched) Switch models don't have a publicly available exploit (yet), which means you can't use homebrew, but keep an eye on GBATemp because TX has announced their new SX Core and SX Lite modchips for the new (patched) Switches and the Switch Lite and they're currently in the beta testing phase, it should be available to the public in a few months. Alternatively, you can buy a used (unpatched) Switch which is exploitable and you can use homebrew on it to backup your saves with Checkpoint.
    Hope this answers your question :)

    Yes, that answers my question perfectly. How can I know if a "second hand" switch model can be use ?
    Otherwise I'll keep an eye on the forum and as soon as there's a possibility to "modify" the new Switche I'll buy one.
    Thanks for the very clear answer

    Check the serialnumber on the switch on https://ismyswitchpatched.com/
    Chances are you get a "may be patched" answer, then you'll need to get a jig and try to push a payload.
    You could visit https://switch.homebrew.guide/ This also covers most questions.

    If you buy a second hand one: check if it's got access to the eshop, it might be banned...

    I suggest use the serial checker as posted above and look on eBay for a “tablet only” there are some unpatched tablets still available all you then need is a set off joy cons then your ready to go!

    And just a heads up, the new exploit for the newer models are more than just software, you have to open up your console and install a modchip in it. Not sure if it will require soldering or not but I don't really see how they could do it without solder unless they made it clamp on perfectly so the correct points have a connection. Plus unpatched units can run Linux and Android and can run some GameCube and Wii games. Plus, we don't know how much the chip will cost, so I think unpatched will always be the best option, so I would go on eBay and just make sure its unpatched 100% (just search for unpatched switch)
