    Switch backup loading is here:

    1) Get a title id of any game you have installed from http://switchbrew.org/index.php?title=Title_list/Games (this is your target titleid)
    2) Create a directory on SD : sd:/atmosphere/titles/*target_titleid*
    3) use hactool to extract the romfs.bin and exefs files from your main nca from the game you want to run instead of your target (its in secure from XCI - the biggest one)
    4) put romfs.bin in sd:/atmosphere/titles/*target_titleid*/romfs.bin, exefs files into sd:/atmosphere/titles/*target_titleid*/exefs/
    5) Edit titleid in main.npdm (in exefs) to contain target title id (http://carlus.altervista.org/nx/title_id_patcher.html)
    6) run a fs_mitm containing CFW release, run your target app (Cannot share the CFW files here, grab them from https://discordapp.com/invite/NbfhykM)

    Note that saves don't work for me atm, you should wait for mememenu/similar.
    Minecraft works, others not tested.

    Any game you are able to run on the switch, so demos will work, full eshop games or even cart games if you have the cart in.

    Yes.
    Extract the secure partition from the XCI and the biggest nca there is the one you want to use with my tutorial.

    Can we dump the Title ID? I got a new Mario Kart 8 Cardridge, so no clue which one I have sadly.

    Hmm, not sure. Some games probably don't react well to being run under a different titleid. But I will try to look into it.

    i feel like this invalidates staying on 3.0.0. i also ordered a TX device, so honestly with Homebrew and backups on 5.1.0, why bother with 3.0.0 anymore???

    By doing this you're running one game with it's cert on another game's TitleID. Doesn't sound like it would be hard at all for Nintendo to detect and ban for this.
