    Wow so 99% of my games are XCI what a screw up >.> I thought I could update with NSP even if I had an XCI since OS SX could use both. This really sucks, took me several days to gather them well but anyways thanks for all the help

    You are able to install/convert your XCI games on ReiNX with a few tools

    Installer: ZeroTwoXCI
    Converter: dedbae XCI2NSP

    !!! I didn't think you could go from XCI to NSP! That's amazing! so NSP is always reccomended over XCI? I guess NSP is like CIA and XCI are like ROMs?
    The reason I liked XCI is because I heard that they simulate a game cartridge so I thought they would be safer from banning. I even heard about some people going online with them.

    People have been for using .XCI files, both offline and online. They are not safer than .NSP files

    yep, have been able to for a while now.
    We don't know what exactly causes banning yet *shrug* @Draxzelex has a thread on banning HERE

    I don't mind staying Offline, I only played Splatoon and the Switch Online "service" basically screwed us over. No dedicated servers, No voice chat, No anti-cheat, No cloud saves. It's like Nintendo abandoned us when they got Smash and Pokemon on the horizon :(

    Well I'll try installing ReiNX and then convert ALL my XCI to NSP. Is this thread the only way to go exFat? because It didn't work for me. Patching the games with my 5.1 firmware kept giving me errors. I tried using Undertale and Senjo no Valkyria 4

    Adran_Mari, is there a way to link to my Nintendo account on the Nintendo Switch without having to update current firmware. I've researched everywhere but cannot find a resolve.

    I apologize for the misspelling my friend. You were gracious enough to answer and reply to my post. There must be a way to make a new account/ use an existing account without the firmware update..

    Download THIS
    Then run it when you are in RCM

    Save the file to sd card and write it down as well. That information is needed if you want a chance of fixing the brick
