    I already have a switch lite, and I'm going to get a hackable Phat switch, I will then use the switch lite for online, and phat switch fro home-brew etc.
    But if I make my Switch lite the primary on my account and the Phat switch secondary. Wouldn't the phat switch ask to check online if I can play the OFW games that are already on there?

    I don't see why not, I've lost count how many times I've switched it, I leave it in these days to protect my efuse from burning when updating.

    I booted into sysmmc cfw to update fw then it turns out that what was updated was my emuMMC, lol don't know what happened anyway I later updated OFW. Via cfw

    OFW and CFW are just modes. You basically choose if you want to boot CFW or OFW before you turn on the console. And in order to boot CFW, you have to use the fusee gelee exploit.

    Again, OFW and CFW are just modes. You can boot CFW and OFW on both sysMMC and emuMMC since CFW and OFW are just modes.

    There is not much difference however you can now use Hekate to make the emuMMC instead of SX OS.
    An unpatched Switch on the latest firmware is still an unpatched Switch.

    This is ChoiDujour.

    Nobody has been banned yet for having a mismatched fuse count including myself.

    emuMMC and sysMMC are separate and don't affect one another.

    There's no risk in enabling and disabling AutoRCM repeatedly but there is no point in disabling it. If your console is losing battery, then its because you are not properly turning off your console. AutoRCM has and will never cause any battery drain.

    They are only supported if you install SX Core to a non-Mariko console.

    No, only the secondary has to be online to play games purchased through the account.

    Thanks for answering my question on booting Atmosphere/Hekate on SX Core.

    I see that Atmosphere's latest release notes talks about adding Mariko support. So once they have that implemented will I be able to use Atmosphere by using the SX Gear's boot.dat to load fuse off the SD Card? Also I couldn't find any references to Mariko in the latest Hekate release notes so does that mean they're not going to support it?

    It's not that I am having battery drain issues, I really am not. I'm aware that AutoRCM does not drain your battery and that some people think this is happening because they're letting their Switch on RCM instead of turning it off completely or letting it on sleep mode. I always let my console on sleep or docked, no battery issues so far thankfully.

    What I mean is when the battery drains for whatever reason (for example, if you play for a while and it gets to a low battery percentage but you forget or just can't recharge it at that given moment and it drains out completely in the meantime). In these situations, I have seen reports of people having big troubles trying to turn their Switch on again, reporting that even letting it recharging for a while they still can't inject the payload in time.

    I don't know if these reports are from people that are not proceeding right, but since it's quite a lot of reports I have read about it, it got me a bit worried.

    Maybe, maybe not. There is DRM in the modchip which makes booting other CFW currently impossible despite the lack of other CFW not being able to support Mariko consoles. And a lot of Hekate's development is done under the radar unlike Atmosphere's development which is done all publicly.

    I have heard similar reports and all of those people were using SX OS which led me to conclude that SX OS itself may be draining the console's battery faster.

    So just to be safe, if I revert back to OFW I'm safe right? It's only when I boot the CFW that I'm at risk online correct?

    Ok so I should make the Phat hacked switch the primary before hacking it. And the Lite switch secondary, as thats the only one that could go online in OFW?

    What's the easiest way of installing Incognito nowadays? And is it safe?
    I'll have to install on my sysnand, cause I don't use emunand.

    Use the RCM version, make sure to make a backup of your prod.info first.

    thx for the help. im still a bit confused (doesnt really matter because i burned all fuses already) but i could update emunand and keep autorcm, and then also boot my clean ofw and play online? i thought the fuses will burn immediately when booting the ofw, which is why it didnt make any difference.

    oh boy....:( the way i usually do is if i want to play online, just dont use the sx gear and just normally boot up the console and play. then if i want to boot cfw on emunand, i do the fusegelee and boot cfw.

    This seems quite a simple method. But someone just told me to use a Tinfoil method and that Incognito_RCM might cause issues. You know about that?

    Ok!! Thanks! And I also have seen this one here: https://github.com/Scandal-UK/Incognito_RCM
    It seems the user @scandal_uk continued to support Incognito_RCM, as it have been recently updated.
    Is the original one, created by jimzrt still the most recommended?

    Thanks, appreciated. When I run Incognito once, do I need to do it again after a system update and / or if I need to restore my system or format my sd card?

    No as traces as CFW persist after shutdown. The only way to be safe is to either never run CFW/homebrew or restore a clean NAND backup that has never run CFW/homebrew.
    Yes.

    Fuses are burnt if you use the console's bootloader when running a firmware higher than your fuse count (i.e. turning the console normally and without RCM). Enabling AutoRCM on sysMMC can prevent fuses from being burnt.

    No - only once (and not on SysNAND) per emuMMC. So if you format the partitions, then yes but not if you only format the SD space.

    Don’t run it on SysNAND if you intend to use emuMMC!
