Hello all,

I apologize if this has been answered, i searched and couldnt find anything.

I restored my nand backup successfully, but my switch had my create a new nintendo folder on the root of the SD. I tried simply using my backup, but it wouldnt let me.

So i proceeded, made a new one and moved everything from my backup to the new.

However, i dont see any of my games installed. I assume i have to fix the "link/shortcut" from the homescreen to where they are located in the nintendo folder. I just have no idea how to do this.

Does this make sense? Is it possible? I'd really like to try and avoid redownloading everything.

If you restored a NAND backup of before those games were installed, then you have to reinstall those games.

    I suppose you have to resort in buying the components for yourself, after all they cost little.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Why not they do the same with the BIOS replacement kits?
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    I'd rather wait for a kit to become a available

    I'm happily more confident to do it myself without a kit.

    And If you get a part that might be defective you'd need to wait longer and spend more

    Unless there are additions that need to be done.

    You're right.

    Why it's better to buy directly from reputable sources

    Yes, and not from some shitty Chinese store.

    They are many repetable component stores to name such as RS Components.

    But then there's added tax to the mix.

    Makes them more expensive. :(

    Rumors going around about USB4

    I'm fine with everything USB wise.

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

  • Shape @ Shape:
    It's so frustrating to have one simple cable that you can plug in upside down for everything!!!

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    USB4 can do up to 40gbps I'd welcome it

    From a Linus video it's essentially just a type c with an advanced chip

  • Shape @ Shape:
    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer
