Hi,
I'm wondering if it is possible to swap the SD card before booting in "Genuine boot" mode.
I'll be more specific: I want to play with my original games online and I want to minimize the possibility that the big N can detect the SX Core installation.
So what I want to do is:
  1. Boot my switch with volume up button pressed
  2. tap on Options button
  3. tap on SX Core button
At this point the switch shows three buttons, one of these is "Genuine boot". Well, now I want to swap the microSD card, plugging in a clean one with only the data written by the switch before the SC Core installation (so no boot.dat, no emunand, no homebrows, etc.) and then tap the "Genuine boot".

So my question is: it is safe to swap the microSD at this point?
Thanks,
Stefano

Thank you Xandroz for your reply.
Ninja style card swap is exactly what I mean :D:D:D
The idea is to have a very clean microSD without any file that can suppose an installed SX core mod.
Anyway, if this "extra protection" is "too extra" (in other words, all the people simply do what you suggested and play online just fine), I'll do the same ;)
Cheers
Stefano
