    Hacking with the jig every time is really annoying and im not sure if I have auto rcm enabled or not. Would auto-rcm hack the switch every time I restart? It's really annoying every time it dies or I power it off and I need to go about the process of putting in the jig and plugging it all in.

    Yes you will need to insert jig on every hard boot

    Just keep it in sleep mode. Atmosphere and sxos can reboot to cfw from error and normal soft reboot

    Only other alternative is an internal mod chip

    Just to clarify: with AutoRCM you don’t need the jig anymore. The dongle or some other way of pushing the payload is still needed of course.

    Haha that I meant yes to dongle/phone/pc for payload not not jig

    I presume that's what OP was on about and I just agreed instead of correcting my bad sorry

    Wait sorry if im a bit confused now. If I enable Auto-rcm and say my switch dies or powers off, how would I then re-hack it. Could I just hold a sort of button combo and plug my switch into my computer, or do I need the jig to do it?

    AutoRCM replaces the need for a jig only. If you turn it off or the battery dies when you press the power button you already be in RCM. Just a black screen on your switch. You'll still need to plug it into a PC or a dongle or phone to "hack" it.

    No button combo needed. Just regular power button will always send you to RCM

    Ah makes sense, gotcha. If incase you didnt have the dongle on you, is it still possible to boot normally?

    Nope. You'll have to boot into hekate and turn autoRCM off
