    I’m curious: Nintendo will be releasing a new System Update soon, and I was wondering what I should do? Should I update? Cause that might get in the way of Homebrew. So...I’m at a loss on what to do.

    nothing will happen to your homebrew, unless you're waiting for a solution without jig.

    Hey guys, i hope im right here.

    So im new to switch hacking, online do things like homebrew and cfw on Wii & Wii U before.

    Maybe you can help me, what is the safest way to install homebrew for playing GBA saves?
    I dont wanna hack online services, actual switch titles, savegames or whatever, just give my switch the ability to play old gba games (like on "virtual console")

    What is the safest way to do that, because i wish to continuously play my regular owned switch titles (hard disks and also 2 eshop titles)

    P.S. sry for my english skills, im from germany ^^

    First, get yourself 2 Switches. Make one of them hackable, homebrewable, and always offline only. The 2nd one always updated to the latest firmware without doubt, and never make that homebrewable.

    Second, just go to the Switch Tutorials and read everything there.

    I haven't updated my switch since about February (no idea what firmware its on). I have SXOS on my system ad haven't updated that since installing it about a month ago-is it worth doing either?

    Just going to post here. Feel free to repost it as a new thread.

    Related to overclocking the Switch, in order to get it to play N64 emulation without dynarec support.

    Code:
    [14:30] <M4xw> 1530000000 hz is the hightest it goes without dying after switch logo btw
    [15:29] <wedr> So, that's +40% from the base clock of 1.08Ghz
    [15:29] <wedr> And 20% more than 1.224Ghz
    [15:31] <M4xw> Some n64 games are playable now :P
    [15:31] <wedr> >Some
    [15:31] <wedr> >Implying there's a hardware limitation
    [15:31] <M4xw> Needss moar OC :P
    [15:31] <M4xw> actually its way better now
    [15:31] <M4xw> majoras has clean audio
    [15:31] <wedr> >mfw n64 games too powerful
    [15:31] <M4xw> 16-20 fps
    [15:32] <M4xw> if audio is clean, the fps is fine
    [15:32] <M4xw> but fb emulation is still too much for it to handle
    [15:32] <M4xw> so many games dont work
    [15:32] <M4xw> black boxes everywhere
    [15:32] <wedr> Then I guess that throws a wrench into n64 emulation on the Switch
    [15:32] <M4xw> We just need that sweet dynarec
    [15:32] <M4xw> ^^
    [15:36] <M4xw> smash is nearly 60 fps wow
    [15:36] <M4xw> didnt expect that

    Havent updated my switch in months (at least 5) and I have SXOS on my system since about a month ago, which haven't updated or done anything with since. I cant get any HB apps on it for some reason.

    Was wondering if its worth updating either the SXOS or the Switch,and what do I do when it comes to playing new games?

    Excuse me. I was wondering, how can you prevent your Nintendo Switch from reverting back to its original settings? Like, say it’s Homebrew-ed, but then what do you have to avoid to prevent it from going back to normal? I heard something about restarting/turning the power off, but I’m not sure...

    A little help?

    Quick question.
    I don't have my dongle and jig under the hand at the moment, so I want avoid rebooting my switch.
    That said, I can't poweroff to put nsp on the micro sd, and I can't ftp since I'm in air plane mode.

    Could I put some nsp to an usb khey, dock the switch, and instal these nsp from usb to the micro sd ?
    Without have to reboot the switch?
    I already have the latest tinfoil whic, iirc, can install nsp from usb.

    Just turned on my Switch for the first time in 4/5 weeks. It was in the dock and plugged in, but its not coming on at all:/

    Has SXOS on but hasn't been updated

    When put in dock, the green light comes on but then turns off within 1 second

    IIRC, I read something about stopping the switch to send information to Nintendo.
    Can you remember that?
    A DNS, a kip file?

    Still won’t turn on....

    Should I insert the jig and dongle again? No battery charge icon appears when in dock or cable charging
