    I also see people complaining about sleep mode with AutoRCM. Will my Switch not charge in sleep mode if plugged into the dock like it does on OFW?

    My guess is corruption on your sd card. Did you format it to EXFAT or FAT32? EXFAT has corruption issues.

    Kosmos is the nickname for tomGER's pre-compiled SD files or more accurately Version 11.0. Sparkle is Version 11.1.

    No new exploits have been released so you still need to send payloads to use CFW/homebrew.

    Not sure what this question is referring to but you can just turn off the Switch by holding the Power button for 3 seconds and pressing "Power Off"

    If you want to follow the guide again, that is up to you but not much has changed since October.

    I don't understand this last question. If you're already on 6.0.1, how can you update to 6.0.1 again?
    What people mean is that you can use Hekate to load ReiNX rather than just use ReiNX all by itself. Technically, you can load Hekate via ReiNX but that is done automatically by ReiNX because it chainloads whatever payload.bin is on the SD card.

    The reason people prefer Hekate is because it can load other CFW as well as has multiple useful features such as removing the archive flag on folders, a battery de-sync fix, and toggling AutoRCM.
    I'm going to assume you're following this guide which I do not recommend using because it spoonfeeds you pre-compiled files without explaining where to obtain them. Redownload kezplez-nx from shchmue's GitHub page as well as ReiNX from the ReiNX guide.
    There are no issues with using sleep mode in conjunction with AutoRCM. Any issues you may have seen are false and probably fear mongering.
    You can connect to the Internet but you may get banned for doing so. However even if you are banned, you can still use the Internet; you will just be limited from using any online services that go through Nintendo's servers.

    can somebody please tell me te difference of NSP and XCI files?
    As far as I know they are of course the rom files for the switch but what is exactly the difference.

    Im planning to use a ReinX payload injector wich I bought from aliexpress and im pretty new to the switch hacking scene.
    Also can ReinX play XCI files?
    with the research I have done so far I think it cannot play those XCI files but is there any way to convert the to NSP files maybe because most of the roms I see are in XCI file format correct me if im wrong.

    Thanks in advance.

    i was usingexfat for sometime with both the old and new nsp and the old stopped working but the new still works. i formatted it to fat32 after and the old one still does not work and the new does

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    nsp is nintendo eshop versions and xci is cartridge. There are xci to nsp converters there and you use tinfoil to install nsps. there is a mod for tinfoil which allows nsps but I have not used it so i can't be sure if it works

    I don't know what you're talking about when you say old and new one. Do you mean a new sdcard or new nsp? The nsp could have gotten corrupted and putting it on a new sd card might not fix it. Redownload the game.

    while having my 64gb sd card on exfat i usb installed a few games . A week later, i installed another game and at that time the other games still worked. The next week the old ones (meaning the games i installed first) stopped working and the newer ones still worked. It says something (not word-for-word) "cannot open software go to the home menu". I tried reinstalling but they dont work. i formatted the sd to fat32 after that but still no difference. The game i installed after all of the games still works.

    Sorry for this long explanation

    Try redownloading the games that don't work from the internet. They probably got corrupted. If that doesn't help then I have no idea.

    Hi all. Noob here looking for some questions answered if possible.

    1. I purchased the SX Pro thingy first release, so I got the first ever made I assume, is that still good or are there better versions out?

    2. I am currently hacking a Wii U to play N64 and GC games. Sadly I see it is not that easy, please the best way according to what I have found is via vWii and I honestly didn't want to touch that since I don't want another HDD to play the games (I don't want injects as I don't understand the controller thingy). Is it easier and better to hack and play N64 and GC games on the Switch?

    3. Is the SX Pro thingy I purchased easy to use to hack the Switch?

    All for now. Thanks.

    Can you usb install your games? I don't mean using a usb external hdd because I'm not using SXOS but can you use a usb cable and install them from your computer to your Switch? If so how?

    Edit: figured out how to do this, it's faster and you don't have to delete the nsp off your sd card. Saves a lot of trouble.

    So... after a while, is SX "EmuNAND" safe to use? Like if i go offline everytime i go to the EmuNAND and then play legit online games on OFW.

    It is safe until the first person gets banned for using their EmuNAND which hasn't happened just quite yet.

    Thanks for the reply. Seems like AutoRCM can also be done through the ReiNX Toolkit according to reinx.guide. is this an inferior solution to using Hekate? Can you explain the archive flag on folders and the battery de-sync though? Are these both problems in ReiNX?

    So my Switch will still charge in sleep mode when docked? I assume that's what it's doing since my Switch (still on stock) is always at 100% charge when I wake it from sleep mode while it's docked.

    All forms of AutoRCM function the same meaning they all "brick" the Switch so it "automatically" enters RCM. This makes it such none of them are inferior or superior to one another because they all accomplish the same job. The only real difference between them is the way they are removed. Typically, you uninstall AutoRCM using the same tool used to install it. So if you enable AutoRCM with Hekate, it stands to reason you would use Hekate to get rid of it.

    The archive flag is an issue that happens when using MacOS and certain builds of Windows 10. When transferring files using one of those operating systems, they have a tendency to set the archive flag on any folders transferred causing them to be unable to be read by Horizon. One workaround is by using a third-party program to transfer files instead such as Total Commander for Windows. And the battery de-sync fix is what it says on the box; a fix for battery de-syncs. The primary cause of battery de-synx was running Linux on the Switch. However, Linux has now been updated to prevent this from happening. There are also many other uses for Hekate but you can read up on those on either the GBATemp thread or its GitHub page.

    Unless the console is actually bricked, nothing should stop it from charging while in sleep mode, docked or otherwise.

    Do u still need a unpatched switch by checking the serial number on the thread to run CFW capable of running back up switch games?
