    Is there an easy way to inject the string from /save/8000000000000050 (from sysnand) into the emummc?

    THIS looks like a simple easier method than on Windows, thanks!

    Wow. Just looked through. This is AWESOME! How would the second SD work? I noticed you mentioned a second NAND on twitter. Would this mean we could buy a NAND chip from a Chinese seller and install it somewhere?

    The implications would be that we could pretty much avoid EmuNAND entirely and have the stock NAND completely untouched. Leaving the second NAND as the boot drive and eliminating any r/w latency probs that an SD introduces.

    I made my own write-up, just for the purpose of learning the tutorial, and I'll post it here. I didn't include the instructions for emuMMC because I don't use it, and I didn't want to study the entire video. I tried to make it as simple as possible, although I'm unsure how clear this is and if I made any mistakes.

    EDIT: I tried it on my 128GB class 10 card, works really well for both Android and Horizon!

    How long do you leave it on the dark screen? Is there backlight? First boot can take like 5 minutes.

    Try these suggestions:
    1) Restart your Switch. Every time I flash Switchroot Android to a micro SD card, it always gets stuck on a black screen when it boots for the first time. I did a force shut down and launched Switchroot Android again, and it booted.
    2) Make sure that all the required partition names/labels are present in Gparted
    3) Use gdisk to convert hos_data to hybrid MBR again
    4) Check the speed of your card.
    I originally tried a class 3 card which took forever to boot, and Android was unbearably slow, laggy and unresponsive. I then tried a class 10 card and it booted within 5 minutes and Android ran very smoothly.
    5) Try a different micro SD card.
    6) Flash the original img file from XDA forums, as it is, without modifications. See if that makes any difference.

    Any other problems, just ask me.
