    Hello,
    My switch is currently OFW2.1, is it possible to upgrade to 6.1 with ChoixDuJour and get back online (so hack free) but eventually get back at 2.1 if a unthetered hack happen ?

    When tou take off the SD card, the switch will be restarted and you will need to put it on RCM.

    Hi guys...when I backed up my switch nand with hekate it told me free space in sd card wasn't enough so it gave me the backup in 14 parts.. is there a tool to merge these parts in one for eventual restore.
    Many thanks

    There is a script in this tutorial to combine all parts into one single .bin :)
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/backup-...-your-biskeys-tseckeys-keys-txt-guide.513386/

    Just look into the spoiler named „For Fat32 users only >>FAT32 Mini Guide“ there is a script for joining the files and also a little tutorial how to use the script.

    I have a question: I soldered the Trinket M0 to the console and it works great. Now i got a transparent case and i wanted to see some of the inside. So is it a problem to not install the Aluminum (thinks it‘s aluminum) Plate/Shield back on?
    Because as is said it would be great to see the insight but i don‘t want to kill the console because it‘s overheating.

    Question: I am about to backup a game cart but my concern is that the game cart was used by my other switch (not running cfw). In WAIN, there is an option to dump the game cart w certs or w/o certs. Which method would be ideal to backup an XCI that has been used in a previous switch that is NOT running CFW that can be safely transferred to a switch that is running CFW?

    @re2j: I would recommend you to always make backups with cert if you don‘t plan to give it to someone else because it‘s better when the console is online.
    But there is a ban risk whenever you connect to Nintendo while running CFW.

    That it was played before on another console is no problem even if it were with CFW or not.
    If that would be a problem no one would be able to sell used Games :)
    Also you are free to own one cart for multiple consoles if they din‘t play the game at the exact same time :)

    Do I have to do I NAND backup everytime I update? I am at 4.1, if I update to 5.1 or 6.1 thought Choidujuour( without autorcm,just burning fuses or whatever) the 4.1 nand backup will be useless?

    [QUOTE = "PikachuPrincess23, post: 8404402, miembro: 367317"] Acabo de recibir el R4 Dongle hasta el interruptor de Nintendo y voy a hacer jailbreaket mi Nintendo Switch con el R4 Dongle.
    Seguí las instrucciones en el sitio cuidadosamente y creo que hice todo bien. Desde que obtuve lo que muestra la imagen, pero también obtengo un error, como muestra la imagen.
    ¿Hice algo mal? [/ CITA]
    That's because of your version, or maybe because of some file that is not updated

    I have a question: I soldered the Trinket M0 to the console and it works great. Now i got a transparent case and i wanted to see some of the inside. So is it a problem to not install the Aluminum (thinks it‘s aluminum) Plate/Shield back on?

    Because as is said it would be great to see the insight but i don‘t want to kill the console because it‘s overheating.


    And a second question: I have a switch Motherboard where 2 capacitors fell of on trying to solder the chip in so the board is dead . Then i bought a used switch with cracked screen and put the Motherboard of that Switch to my first console so i have a working one.

    Is there any possibility to dump the eMMC of the first switch with dead MOTHERBOARD so i can obtain the certificate of this console and have one if the cert from the used switch will get band? I‘m not sure if it works because the eMMC from the dead board aren’t the correct one for just using the eMMC with the second console.


    What i thought about is the question if the eMMC can be dumped via hekate if it doesn’t belong to the motherboard or it doesn’t work because keys are not the correct one. Does anyone have tried that? Because i assume that RCM Mode should be possible either way only thing would be the console of cause doesn’t boot into the system but for a NAND-Backup and Biskeydump the console doesn’t have to boot into the OS.


    I know i could just solder back the capacitor but my soldering equipment isn‘t the right one for sich small solder points and i don‘t want to pay much money to get it professionally fixed just because of the cert.


    I hope my post isn‘t too confusing and you understand what i mean because can‘t describe it better because English isn‘t my native language :)

    1. I wouldn't trust it myself, but I suppose you could. Just make sure that when it restarts, you have your jig ready to enter RCM mode manually.
    2. Depends on if you want to actually go back to a previous version of the Switch firmware. It's ALWAYS best to keep your options open, in my opinion.
    I haven't heard much else from it, but I'm happily running 5.1.0 currently, and I'm actually able to run more things on it over 4.1.0 which is what I had upon my first open.
    Didn't see the thread, but seriously, why does one need 6.2.0 right now? 5.1.0 works perfectly fine WITHOUT all of the extra tracking features that 6.0.0 added to help ban hacked consoles. However, if you want to, you can look at the latest commit for Atmosphere and see that 6.2.0 is indeed supported, provided that you supply the keys if you've obtained them.
    5.1.0 is the best because it's not 6.0.0, and it's the last firmware that actually added functions that games need to be able to play properly (this includes homebrew). 6.0.0 added tracking features that help them ban consoles. You don't want that.

    Not sure about the emuNAND; I don't use it, as I have 2 Switches.
    The method I used to update to 5.1.0 from 4.1.0 didn't need the SD Card at all; not sure what you need!

    Hi,

    I've kept my Switch on 4.1.0 for a while (originally was on 3.0.0 but didn't pay attention and got ninja'ed by a cart udpate), hoping to get into CFW when it's safe since I only have single player games on my switch. It's a hackable one, my SD card is ready and I often read the tutorials, the only thing I'm missing is a paperclip/jig.
    I'm also waiting for my Smash copy, which will probably require 6.2, which I understand will deny me CFW access for the foreseable future.

    My question is (a pretty noob one), how safe it is for me to get a CFW right now ? Would a 6.2 EMuNAND setup be safe enough to play Smash online or should I just let it go and update ?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Yes that‘s possible via the Homebrew Choidujournx. You only need the Firmware Files which you can find via Google (can‘t post link here because the Firmware is Copyright Material).
    I used this method to update from 6.0.1 to 6.1

    Only thing you need is that you already installed the exFAT Update because without that you need a FAT32 formatted card. This can be a small SD, the Update is only about 300-400MB big.

    Nice ! Just to be sure, does that mean that if I update using a Smash cart I'll be on 5.1 ?
    That means I can start playing while keeping my switch CFW-capable, but still I'll have to update to play online eventually. So, I guess my question is still valid ?

    No one really knows for certain (unless you count the people that have acquired the game "early") right now. If you update using the Smash cartage that will be coming out, since it presumably works on 5.1.0, that's the version it will most likely have. Even if it does update your Switch to 6.0.0 or above, it's not like homebrew won't work on it eventually. We already have the keys for 6.2.0, it's just that nobody has released a working CFW for it right now.

    Ok, ive apparently chosen the worst time to hack my switch. I've already Hardmodded my right joycon with some solder, and can get into RCM no problem. However, I'm on 6.2.0, and getting keys and a proper NAND dump is apparently the most impossible things to do now in order to downgrade to 6.1.0 (I dont mind not having sleep mode). From what I've gathered, the keys are console-specific and the current builds of software don't support getting the correct keys in order to properly run Atmosphere.

    So currently, is it impossible to downgrade from 6.2.0 if you don't have a properly populated keys file?
