I just updated my emuMMC to 13.2.1, got atmosphere 1.2.6 and Hekate 5.7.0.
If I try to open a game, it gives me a "Checking if you can play this game" message.

I just tried to update sigpatches via all-in-one updater, Totaljustices sigpatch updater, and manually. No luck.

What could be amiss?

is there a guide updated for android to run on switch? i want to run xbox game pass ultimately and is it worth doing?
i have a 2nd sd card which is sitting going to waste, so i may aswell try if it doesnt affect my atmosphere?
Android supports Xbox game pass? At any rate, you can try following this guide to setup Android.
Now that I've purchased a v1 Switch and my 400GB SD Card has landed, this week I fully intend on getting everything up and running. With that, I've got a couple questions that I'm hoping someone here can help me with.

Firstly, out of these 2 guides HERE and HERE, which do you recommend I use for getting started?

Secondly, since I use Pihole to block all PS4 Related Websites since I own a Jailbroken PS4, is there something similar for the Nintendo Switch?

What apps do most people use that are highly recommended?

From my brief research, I keep hearing advice to update to the latest Sig Patches. Where can I find more information on this?

Thanks for all the help. I'm really looking forward to getting up and running.
  • Second guide is better
  • Here is a link to a post of what another user blocks via their PiHole
  • That depends on what you plan to do with your console as there are a wide variety of homebrew apps
  • The main and only CFW remaining, Atmosphere, does not support piracy. Instead, users create patches to load with Atmosphere that enable piracy. These patches are not "sigpatches" (this is a made-up term to make it easier for 'noobs') but instead ES, FS, & Loader patches. ES patches enable pirating digital content while FS patches allow users to pirate games dumped as cartridges or install homebrew apps as titles. Loader patches are needed alongside FS patches after a certain firmware. You can find a link to these patches in this thread
Made a post couple pages back about my sd card being corrupted I don’t think anyone responded to. I went ahead and reformatted and started from scratch. Clean atmosphere install. Trying to install my old games via hdd on tinfoil, it won’t read my hdd. If I plug it into my pc and try with usbfs it doesn’t read anything.

Before my sd card corrupted I never had an issue with it. I’ve tried awoo and tinwoo as well and nothing

What could it possible be ?

You can check if you're using sysMMC or emuMMC by going into the System Settings and checking if there is an "E" or "S" at the end of the current firmware version. "E" means its emuMMC and "S" indicates sysMMC. You also do not need to use both exosphere and dns.mitm because you don't get any extra benefit from using both. Either one is fine but you absolutely do not need to use both of them together.

Try launching Atmosphere via fusee instead of Hekate.
Hello :D ,Can someone tell me what is the system memory in tinfoil?Can I install games on it?
System memory is your console.

Sorry, I meant to ask how was your HDD formatted?
Oh I’m not sure but I haven’t changed it from how it was when tinfoil was recognising it till after I had to format my sd card if that makes sense. Like it’s the same hdd all that changed between it working and not working is formatting my sd card.

Hello. I successfully got homebrew running but i am unable to get Tinfoil installed / running. Images attached. I tried the NSP and self installer with no success.

Do i just need to update my Switch firmware? Is it enough to remove the SD card and update without getting banned? I blocked the DNS before using firmware.

As long as i do everything in the emucc and remove the SD card before going online, i should be fine right ? Ty

Well if it was formatted to exFAT, that would explain the corruption since the Switch tends to corrupt anything formatted as exFAT.

I highly recommend just using TinWoo Installer instead as it is what I always personally use & recommend because I've never ever had any issues while using it.

No my SD card thwt I play games on has always been fat32 before it corrrupted and after. My hdd that I use to install games into my sd card used to read fine on tinfoil and now since my sd card got corrupt and I started fresh won’t read anymore. I haven’t done anything different to the hdd itself.

I wasn't talking about your SD card. The problems you listed were related to your HDD if its not being read. Your SD card won't have any affect on your HDD. And even if you didn't do anything differently to the HDD, if it was formatted to exFAT as I suggested earlier, it could eventually corrupt.

Ok I think I understand. But what can I do to install games bigger than 4.7 especially on atmosphere I can’t run xci on an external hard drive. That’s why I used my hdd (external if there’s any confusion) to put large games on and installed them via tinfoil. If I format the hdd to fat32 as well I’m stuck ?
