    I have a couple of questions regarding atmosphere 6.2.0 before updating.

    (1) Is it autoRCM only or can you use a mode similar to sx os where you have to inject the payload to start your switch in CFW? (otherwise it boots in OFW as a unhacked switch)
    (2) Can you use xci or nsp files on atmosphere 6.2.0 in any way? (e.g. using the CFW or homebrews)
    (3) Can you use sx os again efter you have installed atmosphere?

    1) Atmosphere is booted practically the same was as SX OS, through an RCM payload. If you use the SX OS dongle it will be slightly different, you will have to boot with a USB cable connected to the computer as I believe the dongle only lets you boot SX OS, I may be wrong on this however.
    2) Atmosphere is not a piracy tool. XCI and NSP files are piracy files, *NOT* homebrew, and it will not run them. There are Homebrew apps you can use with atmosphere which will install NSP files, but they do not currently work on 6.2.
    3) You don't "install" either one, unless you mean SX OS's "emunand" which will not be affected by Atmosphere. CFW is only temporarily launched until you turn your system back off

    Thx a lot for your answer! Is the same true for xci? They do not currently work on atmosphere in 6.2.0 in any way?

    You can run nsp files in atmosphere if you add sigpatches. They dont come included, but it is not very hard to download them and put them in. xci cannot be run on anything besides sxos, but you can convert xci to nsp and install them so thats not very relevant.
