    In the clean sysnand guide it says to factory restore the switch. Is there any way around having to do that?

    Factory resetting the console doesn't completely clean the console anyways so its more of a placebo effect than anything.

    Question: I was looking around what seems like everywhere to find a XCI to NSP Convertor for Mac OS. Is there such a thing because I would love to see if I dumped my MK8 cartridge correctly.

    I just got my SSBU code for the Piranha plant and out of curiosity I searched to see If a cartridge has multiple use for getting the code. Nintendo says a game cartridge can only be used for rewards once.

    So do cartridges have fuses too?

    No, they have an unique certificate that Nintendo can keep track of.

    Hi folks not sure if this is the right place to be asking so if it’s not would appreciate being directed to the right place!

    Anyways, I’m trying to install an NSP on my switch, but I’m on Fat32 so the game is too large for it. I’ve used SplitNSP to split the file and now have a folder ending in .NSP, with the archive bit enabled. However, after moving the folder onto the switch, it doesnt show up anywhere (in the homebrew menu or in NSShell or whatever it’s called.)

    Any advice for this? It’s kind of prohibiting me at the moment.

    Thanks in advance.

    Never used split .NSP files but for ones larger than 4 GB with a FAT32 SD card, I always used USB install with Tinfoil.

    That’s fair enough, I’m using GoldLeaf as it’s supposed to be the new tinfoil equivalent, but I’m having trouble getting the USB installer to work.

    Also tried using Tinfoil but it crashes Atmosphere on load so need to figure that out.

    Thanks though :)

    For me, I use the 883e build of Tinfoil from the bot and Aluminum Foil on my PC. I should also mention that I'm on firmware 5.1.

    Is there a homebrew app that I can use to capture gameplay footage? Would like to record on retroarch if possible.

    I'm on 5.1 I've been on this for awhile now should I update? Is there any advantages for staying for 5.1?

    Firmware is irrelevant since we can update our firmware freely without burning fuses.

    Yes depending on your fuse count.

    Fuses can be checked with either briccmii or Hekate (under Fuse info). For information regarding fuses and firmware, they can be found here.
