    1. Its not entirely a softmod as you do you have to use a jig or something conductive to put the console into RCM but there is no point in updating the firmware beforehand
    2. No matter what guide you follow, you should use FAT32. The reasons are simple; exFAT can corrupt your SD card and the 4 GB limit can be bypassed any number of ways on FAT32 so there is absolutely no reason to use exFAT. If anyone tells you to use exFAT, do not listen to them even if they say they have never had issues because many users have experienced corruption. As for a guide, I recommend following this one

    It is possible setup Android 10, Lakka (Linux), and have CFW on one SD card but I'm not sure if you can have them all as hidden, youtube user HCGN has some examples you can check out.

    Super newbie question that doesn't pertain to me at all, just wondering:

    Is there a jig or NAND reader/Flasher for Switch that would allow someone to rip their NAND in a nonworking or nonfunctioning system?
    I mean no CFW or RCM at all. I'm talking off a Switch that has a dead board or generally won't work.

    Thanks.

    TL;DR

    Have an original Switch that is on Kosmos/AtlasNX and FW 9.2 -- I haven't touched it for awhile and now some of the games I want to play require 10.x or like Dead Cells, even 11.x firmware.

    So, a few quick questions:

    • Is there any reason NOT to go straight to 11.0.1 and be done with FW upgrades for awhile? If so, which version is recommended?
    • So many confusing answer out there on how to update to the latest Atmosphere CFW since Kosmos/Atlas is no loner updated. Looking for the easiest/quickest way for CFW/FW upgrade
    Thanks in advance!

    Just posting a huge thank you to @Draxzelex and @Lacius for all the help that you've given not just to me, but to tons of people I have seen posting here. I got everything working as I had hoped thanks to all of the help that you've given me, and instead of just another notification begging for info, I just wanted to let you know how much you rock! Great work, and thanks again for all of your help.

    And a special thanks to @Draxzelex. When I see he has responded, I know I don't have to, and he does a lot more than me these days.

    As far as I am aware, I have not heard of such a thing. A tool like that may be more custom or niche so it might not be as widespread. If you want, you can try asking outside of here to see if anyone else has heard anything.

    SX Core is compatible on all Switch units. And if the site to activate the licenses is down, then there is no alternative way to activate them. Although you already have the SX products, be aware that its possible TX may no longer update their CFW so its recommended to setup Atmosphere.

    Using a hacked console will always have a risk of getting banned. This will never change until the online services are taken down.

    Yeah i'know but like on 3ds the risk was not really high. On Switch i'would know, in 2K18 the risk of playing online with freeshop game was like 100%, how is it now ?

    Nothing is guaranteed to cause a ban. Everything has a risk but it is nearly impossible to calculate a numerical value because Nintendo are the ones who ban people. Plus not everyone gets banned for doing the same thing.

    If you use CFW, homebrew, themes, or install NSP's you are at risk of being banned, but only Nintendo can tell you the exact reason why, when, how you get banned, so you must decide yourself if it's worth it...

    If your intention is to try and play a pirated game online, then being banned is out of the question because it is actually impossible to play pirated games online. To put it simply, pirated games are installed with tickets that aren't signed by Nintendo making online play with them not possible.
