    My exfat SD card always get corrupted and I loose files on it
    So I want to format it to FAT32 but what if I download 4GB+ eshop games with my FAT32 card?

    If you download them through the switch, it autosplits the files as it installs them. If you are talking about xci/nsp files, there are scripts to split them for you

    Or use Tinfoil's USB/Network install.

    True. It had me to try different cables and tinkering to make it work. Suddenly, it just works now.

    Sounds like you are using a bad sd card, a counterfeit sd card, or user error if you are using homebrew.

    Personally I just use FAT32 and USB install with Aluminium Foil, seems to work well enough with nsp's well over 4gb

    It does, but they didnt mean for it to be used with homebrew. Most people who only play backups dont seem to have any issues.

    I literally just downloaded this and it has USB install. Either you're a bad liar or you don't know what USB install looks like...

    Yeah, use Zadig to replace the libComms or whatever it's called driver to a generic one.

    Another *very* important thing: if you happen to be installing .nsp files with special or foreign characters (for example something with á in the file name, or something with Japanese characters in the file name), or with very long file names, it WILL crash the Switch when installing via Tinfoil
