I managed to get HBG shop working and installed a couple of games. Keep getting 'the software was closed because an error occurred" message when opening games. Any fixes? Yes Sigpatches are updated.

Hello
P00721-091004.jpg
I would like to play some backups on my switch,but i can't get goldleaf to work.
Reason im asking is because the program is totally unresponsive.
Can't go up or down in menu or press any buttons.Did i do anything wrong.I installed it as an nro file.
I am on Sx os.3.0.4- 10.1



Nevermind got it working with Tinfoil

Have you tried using reinx?.

I haven't but this was fine prior to battery depleting, I've tried that today and Fusee runs and says it ran in the terminal window, smashed but it doesn't get any further, switch is unresponsive on a blank screen. I'd say because my SD card has a combination of all the files currently it's causing issues.

I was going to try a fresh build on my SD card but what will happen with the games I've installed?

As I said before I don't want to lose 12 games as that's loads of download time to redownload them, moving forward I'm going to keep the NSP's on a external hard drive incase.

Thanks :)

would anyone know what part of my nintendo folder (its the one you make a backup of your content of your sd card to start with before you hack your switch) might have your downloaded games files at?? i got 115gb on this and cant put it on the current card with all the backup and whatnot that the new hacked stuff has. its annoying. i dont want to lose my acnh save. its honestly the one i care for the most. well that and my pokemon shield save. if anyone knows pls lmk. im going nuts.

Have you tried using ReiNX?

Nope, I am using files on SD card.
Then they are stored in the emuMMC file.

It depends on where the games are installed. Games installed on the internal memory will be unaffected but any games installed on the SD card will no longer be there if you swap SD cards.

Any risk in using amiibo cards with CFW?
If you mean risk by interfering with CFW then no.

Saves are stored in the console not on the SD card.

Important is, that you boot atmosphere through fusee primary and not via hekate payload. I only use hekate for emuMMC (sd-partition) settings and that's it. I dunno why, but using fusee payload will prevent a lot of problems (maybe someone can shed some light in that topic).

Yeah they are installed on the SD card, I'm going to try a fresh install of it all and I still have the game cartridge of Pokemon Sword to try and rip, I'll test an update then.

If I put a new build from SD Setup onto my card do I need any new sig patches for any games (Paper Mario as an example) or will this be good to go?

Unfortunately SDSetup no longer pre-bundles the patches. You will have to download them separately from here

Hi

How can i unhack my switch?
I don't have the nand back up
While technically you can just boot up the console normally to avoid booting CFW, without a clean backup, you will be unable to remove the traces of CFW/homebrew that remain on your console.

Hmm... This is so sad indeed... The only reason i want to unhack is i want to play online with a purchased game... If this can't be done then I think I'd better sell it and buy a new one...

Might be a dumb question but does that count if you exclusively booted from sd-card into cfw and never did anything with the sysNand?

Awesome, on it.

Is there a set order to do them in? Thank you

The order of placing your files on the SD card does not matter.

Sorry for the basic questions... But I've installed Paper Mario using Goldleaf and it appears in my list of games but just crashes and reverts back, So I assume I'm missing patches?

The issue I have with the link you sent is that there appears to be multiple folders in the files downloaded containing Atmosphere & Bootloader folders, If I try and add them all onto my SD card they just replace so I'm a little bit unsure what to do with them.

Sorry if that sounds stupid but I think I'm about 90% there now!

I don't know what all you've done, but the following steps work nearly 100% of the time:
  1. Make sure the SD card is FAT32.
  2. Remove all CFW files/folders from your SD card (that would be folders like /sept/ and /atmosphere/)
  3. Download the latest Atmosphere
  4. Download the latest fusee-primary (next to Atmosphere)
  5. Download these signature patches (for Atmosphere v0.13.0)
  6. Put Atmosphere and the signature patches onto your SD card
  7. Put the SD into your Switch
  8. Enter RCM
  9. Launch Atmosphere using fusee-primary

Done all of that and for the first time ever been able to install Tinfoil which is huge progress, thank you.

As for my games I copied onto the SD card before I believe 90gb of data was in a Nintendo folder, if I moved that back to the card now would the games work or are they dead and buried now and I'll need to redownload? Save data is still on the console from what I've seen.
