    In my opinion, they're all equally easy so its more of a matter of preference when it comes to CFW.

    Yes, you install all .NSP files with Tinfoil.

    Fuses primarily prevent downgrading. The console's bootloader checks the fuse count with the current firmware; if there are more fuses burnt than the firmware, it refuses to turn on the console. You can check for a full list here.

    Weird thing happened today, which im unsure why it happened in the first place.

    I was playing Dark Souls Re last night; put it on charge... took out wire @ 95~% battery.. went to sleep

    this morning i woke up, pressed only the Home button ... saw the battery was like 92% something... left it as is

    Put it in my laptop bag > Drove to work > pressed Home / Power button, and its not waking up

    Since i'm at work still and use Windows to push payload, im not sure what happened or if its in RCM mode.

    Anyone ever experience that? automatically shutdown even @ almost full battery?
    (i know when i placed the switch in my bag, the power button was facing up, so it couldn't have accidentally shutdown)

    ---------- EDIT

    So it did somehow shutdown ... i held power for 10-15 seconds... connected to windows and it allowed me to push payload
    Got into Horizon and battery was 60%... so i dont know how it even shutdown... first time it happened

    TL;DR all good now

    Try holding down the power button for 15 seconds then let go then hold it for 2-3 seconds. You'll be back on OFW and have to get back to RCM.

    Super newbie who has never hacked a switch before. I intend to buy a switch from GameStop tomorrow in order to save a hackable one before Black Friday.
    Should I go for new or used ones and how likely is it I'd find a good one?

    Hello. My Switch was updated through stock, from 4.1.0 to 5.1.0, and I have a backup of 4.1.0. There´s no way for me to downgrade to 4.1.0 and be able to use a potential warmboot exploit on that fw, right? Thanks in advance.

    There's new switches out there that have been patched thus unhackable. It's by serial number. This thread will tell you which ones can/can't.

    https://team-xecuter.com/forums/threads/154355-GUIDE-How-to-know-if-a-Switch-is-currently-unhackable-(August-2018)

    That doesn't automatically mean just buying used will = hackable. But buying new probably means unhackable. It's kinda tricky. I got mine at a pawn shop yesterday and looked at the serial number before I purchased it, I was given no crap for asking. But Gamestop has a lot of douchebags that might straight up ask you why you're asking. If it ends up being unhackable you can probably exchange it though and say it was defective.

    Get a jig off Ebay they're like $2. I just got my Switch yesterday and I'm using tinfoil but I got a jig coming. I read about the possibility of the tinfoil ruining your Switch and/or joycon, not worth it for $2.

    I'm not the expert because again I haven't even gotten mine in yet but this is the one I bought https://www.ebay.com/itm/Precision-...h=item3d791a636e:g:NuoAAOSwSYdbznWl:rk:3:pf:0

    Have another ? myself is it normal that you have to detach your joycons from the main screen to play backups? I was wondering if that was normal or that was because I was using tinfoil.

    hello community !
    as soon as the n64 and ps1 and ps2 emulators come out for switch is when ill be jailbreaking.
    tell me, what is nice about jailbreaking a switch right now ?? just to be clear?
    besides the obvious im sure NES or SNES emulators, what good ones do you think we will see in near future ?? perhaps dreamcast??
    i also have seen it emulates gamecube very well so im sure it has some power.

    There's zero reason to believe PS2/Dreamcast will be emulated on Switch, none. If they are, it will have like 5% compatibility or less. If those are so important to you you could buy each system for cheap, or emulate on PC. If those are the only reason you want a Switch, maybe you don't need one at all. You could get a PC pad for about the price of the Switch or sometimes less that could emulate PS2/Dreamcast much better right now.

    that is not the only reason i want to own a switch. i have owned my switch since it came out.
    im saying that is why i would want to jailbreak my switch
    a dreamcast emulator was absolutely sought for the wiiu
    so i wish that the switch would eventually get to that point because so many people said that wiiu could never do half of what it does now.
    im just a fan of having my games on my nintendo console personally but the PC pad is a cool idea that i will keep in mind. thanks for your response.

    Hi.
    I installed nsp and the game wants me to update the fw.
    I'm on 5.1.0, as far as I know , there is no game out there that requires fw 6.
    What should I do?
    Thx.

    I have no fucking idea.
    Ill definitely take a look! Thats all I needed for my Switch, but I bought my brother a Switch for Christmas yesterday, and I want to be able to load backups and stuff because hes young and cant afford games. I assume that part is covered in the guide?
    Buying SXOS isnt an issue for me, its quite cheap.

    Sooo , I succesfully inject the payload on my switch but when I restart my switch nothing as changed and the homebrew launcher doesn't work when I go to the album

    Any ideas? the part with the 10th pin was so difficult I hope I won't have to do it again :(

    EDIT : I went to the discord of ReinX guide and they were really nice to me and help me a lot , my Nintendo switch is functionnal now ! I just have to find some good homebrews so if you guys, have any ideas feel free to tell me :) !

    Currently backing up my Switch’s NAND using Hekate and, well, it’s been 7 hours now and counting... X’D So, how normal is this, because I’ve read that it would only take 1-2 hours?

    It’s currently at rawnand.bin.05 and still writing ^^
