Good afternoon community!

I recently bought a Nintendo Switch.

I spent many hours modeling ds and 3ds, but I am just entering this world of the switch.

I would like to know if it is possible to have a console that can run Android on an SD and use the console to play the games that I am going to buy on the account.

I understand that to run Android, you have to unlock the console, and with it, the online is lost. Still if there is an option, I would like to know if someone could give me a small guide or links to consult.

I am not interested in installing "pirated" games. I thought it was interesting to have Android as an additional system inside the switch if there are no significant risks of banning.

Thank you in advance for the information that you can share with me!

you don't lose online capabilities just because you soft modded your console. it just highly advised to not go online while running cfw.
As long as you have an unpatched V1, you can run android on it. if its any of the other models that require the mod chip to mod it. then you cant run android as its currently not supported. but yes you can run android and still play online. i just suggest having 2 sd cards. 1 for android and 1 for regular play

To see if your device is capable of being "hacked" (unlocked) without a modchip: find your device’s Serial Number on the bottom of the switch.

Once you have the number, compare with this list:
  1. For Serial Numbers beginning in XAW1
    Serials between XAW10000000000 to XAW10074000000 are hackable.
    Serials between XAW10074000000 to XAW10120000000 are potentially hackable.
    Serials from XAW10120000000 and up are NOT hackable.
  2. For Serial Numbers beginning in XAW4
    Serials between XAW40000000000 to XAW40011000000 are hackable.
    Serials between XAW40011000000 to XAW40012000000 are potentially hackable.
    Serials from XAW40012000000 and up are NOT hackable.
  3. For Serial Numbers beginning in XAW7
    Serials between XAW70000000000 to XAW70017800000 are hackable.
    Serials between XAW70017800000 to XAW70030000000 are potentially hackable.
    Serials from XAW70030000000 and up are NOT hackable.
  4. For Serial Numbers beginning in XAJ1
    Serials between XAJ10000000000 to XAJ10020000000 are hackable.
    Serials between XAJ10020000000 to XAJ10030000000 are probably NOT hackable, but it's possible.
    Serials from XAJ10030000000 and up are NOT hackable.
  5. For Serial Numbers beginning in XAJ4
    Serials between XAJ40000000000 to XAJ40046000000 are hackable.
    Serials between XAJ40046000000 to XAJ40060000000 are probably NOT hackable, but it's possible.
    Serials from XAJ40060000000 and up are NOT hackable.
  6. For Serial Numbers beginning in XAJ7
    Serials between XAJ70000000000 to XAJ70040000000 are hackable.
    Serials between XAJ70040000000 to XAJ70050000000 are potentially hackable.
    Serials from XAJ70050000000 and up are NOT hackable.
  7. For serials beginning in XKW1, XKJ1, XJW1, and XWW1 all of the consoles released with these numbers cannot be hacked.

For that you can even use only 1 SD card if it's partition correctly, but personally use 1 big SD Card for SWITCH CFW and one smaller for Android, because I only use Android when I'm on my villa to watch Cinemapk, HBO, Netflix etc. and local paid sport TV app, so don't need to bring my laptop with me...
If you don't turn off your switch you don't even need to inject payload every time as you can go to hekate from CFW and Andoird after restart and just switch (pun not intended) the sd cards from there...

Thanks for the answers guys! I was able to install the emunando on the SD with Android, separating it from the original system.

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
