    Don’t think the 12 seconds is necessary. Have you installed the drivers? Follow this guide, it should get you through the process and backup.

    Hi, is there any work being done on a permanent CFW? Would be great if one could just start the switch and be dropped right into a homebrew launcher without having to do the jig/payload stuff. Will Atmosphere provide such a solution?

    I bought a new switch (4.1) and it has been patched.... I have a SX Pro dongle also Which I can't use as a result of the patch. Is there a place I can find out progress about getting an update on getting my SX pro working? And also an uodate on homebrew? I was so excited to get this working. Now I'll wait patiently...
    Thanks

    Hi. How do you properly make use of the network install feature of Tinfoil? I can´t help but to think I´m doing something wrong as the Python script crashes(?) if I want it to detect for example IP automatically or if I I get to the endstep manually before sending the file. This is btw the first time I´m using Python..

    Well for starters, since you are going to be using SX OS, I'd take a look at Team executers own website, https://team-xecuter.com/ to keep track of any updates. Also, here's an article stating Team Executers progress on the new "Unhackable" Switches:

    https://team-xecuter.com/team-xecuter-versus-the-unhackable-switch/

    Normally I'd also tell you to stay on 4.1 and not update it further, since there is an as of yet unreleased exploit known as Deja Vu" that will work on Switches of that Firmware. But I don't know if this is relevant since you are using SX OS.

    What you CAN do however, is to update your Switch to 5.1.0 using ChoiDujour NX. This prevents burning any fuses in your Switch and thus you will be able to downgrade at a later date to use Deja Vu: https://gbatemp.net/threads/choiduj...ller-homebrew-for-the-nintendo-switch.513416/

    I have comepletely powered off my Switch with AutoRCM on and I can't start it again at all. I think my SX OS dongle has no power in it and I assume it happened because I didn't recharge it (on powered on console) enough. I don't have any other type-c devices (tho I'm not even sure if I can even recharge the dongle with them).
    What should I do now?

    Edit: Oh, nvm. I completely forgot that there is a little cable to power the dongle.
    On a side note, is it normal that I can hear the dongle? Yes, there are capacitors, but is it really normal? Is it because I didn't turn it on for a long time or something?

    I'm afraid you can't do anything until a new exploit is released, which it could be months from now. Nobody knows. Both SX OS or any other CFW with homebrew support will need a working exploit in your console. You could sell the patched Switch and try to get a pre owned one which is vulnerable to Fusee Gelee as another option if you don't wanna wait. Your other option would be to wait without updating because Deja Vu only works in 4.1 or lower if I'm not mistaken.

    I don't think he can get into the Homebrew menu to use ChoiDujourNX if his console is patched, so I'm pretty sure he can't do anything for the moment.

    1. Yes.
    2. Until you get banned
    3. You will only get banned if you go online. You will only update if you go online. Can’t tell you if CFW will be compatible with future firmware updates, but likely.

    There is an unreleased warmboot exploit that would involve loading a webpage to get the CFW loaded. This would get rid of the jig and payload components entirely, but there is no word on a "permanent CFW". That would either involve cracking Nintendo's 2048 character key to sign the CFW or find another coldboot exploit that isn't tethered.

    A few questions, I’d really appreciate some advice.

    So I have 2 switches; 1 perfectly legit, not hacked or modded in any way. 1 hacked Switch with SX OS 1.5 with NSP’s and XCI’s from CDNSP & scene releases. I only downloaded the backups of games I own (because it was quicker & easier than making my own backups) First question is: if I install CFW on the legit Switch & only run Checkpoint once to get all my saves and make my own backup, do you think that legit Switch will be banned?

    If it was to get banned, then I buy a new 3rd Switch, will I be able to do User Profile Transfer from the banned Switch to the new Switch and continue on as normal?

    I have some really good saves on my legit Switch, such as Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze 400% and Crash Bandicoot 105% with 27 Platinum Relics which I would like to bring over to my hacked Switch and share here. But I also have 2,410 hours for Splatoon 2 and I’m very active with friends for that game, so I don’t wanna be banned (and I’m willing to buy a 3rd Switch and sell the banned one to someone who is okay with buying a banned Switch).

    Lastly, just curious about this... my hacked Switch has never ever been connected to WiFi. All firmware updates and game updates were done through ChoiDujourNX or .NSP’s through SX OS installer. If I did system restore in OFW, would that make it a clean Switch? Or will that still be banned if it was to connect to WiFi after the OFW System Restore.

    Thanks heaps in advance.

    I can't say for sure. I think the answer you will get is that it's possible that you would get banned, maybe not likely, but possible. but like you, i'd be curious if anybody has only used cfw for checkpoint and if they have been banned or not. as that is pretty much all i want to use cfw for.

    in regards to your transferring saves, you could be able to use Nintendo's cloud storage when that comes out. put your account on both switches, upload on your clean switch, download on your modded switch. yes your modded switch might then get banned, but i don't think you'd mind. granted this is all in theory at the moment.

    Unfortunately you would likely get banned. The predominate thinking is that to avoid a ban you backup your NAND before you hacked your switch. then system restore, then restore your NAND. just doing an OFW system restore on it's own isn't enough.

    Got an unhacked console. Let's say reinx is 'installed' and then nsps. From a coldboot do you have to load the cfw to play those games or can they be launched from horizon?

    Thanks for the reply. How bout if I use the user profile transfer feature that’s available now, between the legit one and hacked one and then back again...?

    As in:
    1. Transfer user profile from legit console to hacked console
    2. Make backups of all my saves on hacked console with Checkpoint
    3. Transfer user profile from hacked console back to legit console?

    I will need to finally connect to WiFi on my hacked console, surely both consoles can’t be banned for this?... only the modded one would be... but do you think being online for 15 mins would be long enough to get banned? And do you think my NNID/Nintendo Account can be banned for doing this?

    No, those NSPs will require CFW to run. Otherwise all CFW would be is an installer.

    Oh FFS....Yes of course-.- He doesn't have access to HomeBrew, so he can't use ChoiDujourNX....That totally slipped my mind...

    the ban you would most likely get would be that particular switch being banned, not your nintendo account.

    As for your other questions...Please forgive me, but i'm not knowledgable about the profile transfer feature, so hopefully somebody else will answer that.

    I also hope that perhaps somebody will get back to you about if anybody has been banned for only using Checkpoint. perhaps looking in the big sticked thread about Bans might have the answer if you search through it.

    So then the best thing will be to leave it in sleep mode when in cfw?

    Can the transfer user profile function be used locally? Because I know the console loses a lot of online functionality once its banned such as being able to un-link the Nintendo Account. If you do this before the console is banned, you are essentially transferring the Nintendo Accounts associated with that user from one console to another. And unless that console has violated the Terms of Service by being hacked, then I don't see that much reason for Nintendo to ban a console with a Nintendo Account from a hacked device. And just to reiterate, majority of bans are performed on the console itself and not the Account (some countries forbid the Account from being banned).

    As for your other concern, even connecting for one second is enough to get flagged and subsequently banned sometime in the future. However, no one has been banned for only using EdiZon. The only homebrew ban so far was due a user who used a GBA emulator as well as clearing error logs on 5.X
