    Hello ! Everything is in the title, I already tried to change the sd card reader but nothing. I sent it to a shop that can be able to repair it but they tell me that is a motherboard issue :(

    I'm not aware of a way without the sd card which uses a homebrew app to copy the saves to the sd card. There's just not a lot you can do without an sd card in a hacked switch.

    if you have an online membership and cloud saving, you can download them to the new switch. I had my original switch die without cloud saving, and I lost everything. I'm going legit though, so this might not be an option for you.

    Please take my suggestion as uninformed as you can, but with 8.0 Nintendo cooked in the ability to send our saves to a new switch, I imagine (my emunand not updated yet so haven't used it) that you could use that to send the saves to a new switch, I also imagine there's some safe guards about being same account or what not but you could easily backup, setup, transfer, dump then restore to get them that way, long way around but a option?

    that might be the best option. I've read that sending them this way doesn't require you to be online.

    I installed custom nsp so If I update I will be banned before sending my save
    Isn't it ?

    He might be able to send memloader over and use hacdiskmount But he must have his unique keys for it to work.

    Matty told me in another thread that Nintendo connectors are very fragile. So it might be a broken pin that needs to be soldered back to place.

    You can send me the board. I can reattach the reader using TinySoldering™ technology.
