    Hi i have a unpatch switch, been tempted to mod it for a while now. Just wondering how easy it is to do and keep it updated? Not got much of a background in this type of thing. Thanks for your time :)

    Just take your time, read everything and make sure you understand. Do not rush anything.

    And make backups before doing updates! It's usually easy, but you do need to understand what you are doing.

    System and CFW updates are probably the most difficult, but still easy. Updating homebrew apps are very easy (copy/paste).

    Read, read, and then read some more. Don't watch! (I mean youtube vids) If you're really not tech savvy, and all this stuff is above your head, try to get someone around you who is more into this stuff to help you. The most important thing to do first, make a backup of your NAND/BOOT0/BOOT1 with Hekate, and also your biskeys. That way, if you screw something up, you can fix it easily.

    CFW is commitment. If you are not familiar with tech/homebrew stuff/have no somewhat decent pc knowledge then just don't bother and use your switch without any CFW (like you are supposed to lol). If you want CFW, you'll have to read and understand a lot + eventually solve problems by yourself.

    I'll basically tell you what others have already written even though I am a newbie like you lol, read read and read again before actually going through the process, and if you're not familiar with tech stuff in general or you are scared of doing something wrong then use it without CFW. Best of luck!

    Updating files is as simple as putting the new ones on the SD card. Being tech savvy however is on you as there are a lot of terms that you have to become acquainted that majority of hacking tutorials won't cover. Lastly, Switch hacking being "easy" is relative to the person doing the task. To someone who knows what they are doing might argue its easier than hacking the 3DS while someone else may say its impossible. Read the information and decide for yourself if its easy or not.
