    Now with the latest sx os update my xci files now show up in the „installer“ section and I can „install“ the XCI. What does it actually do? It’s not NSP. Those are XCIs.

    So if I were to have a patched unit with version 4.1.0 what would I do to go on from here?

    Hello,

    I'm using SXOS Pro 2.5.2 on 6,2.
    I'm really trying to figure out the way to boot/reboot/poweroff my console to avoid burning fuses with AUTOrcm enabled.

    Previously (pre-2.5.2) I was following this method:

    Completely power off: "Put in the dongle or get ready to inject -> Hold Power -> Power Options Menu -> Restart while holding Volume Up (+) -> SX OS Startup Menu -> Options (3rd icon as of SX OS) -> Power Off"

    And similarly on boot, using the Volume Up (+) and power on button with dongle and tool on the console.

    Now, I'm finding that the console can boot with just the power button and the dongle in place. Did i miss something major on the patch notes or my method is old and outdated?

    At the end of the day, all I'm asking is this:

    What's the proper way to boot and shut down the console while using the AutoRCM, to avoid burning fuses, and the dreadful battery drain on shut down.

    Cheers for any replies.

    When you create the EmuNAND partition the first time, I believe it doesn't make a copy of the Nintendo folder, it just creates a folder named "Emutendo" on your SD card. And since the Nintendo folder houses all games installed to the SD card, if you had any games installed to the SD card before you made your EmuNAND partition, they won't automatically be reinstalled for usage with EmuNAND. This next step is pointless since you already reinstalled all of your games but you could have made a copy of your Nintendo folder and rename it to Emutendo.

    Yes however it can only be used in EmuNAND since your SysNAND doesn't have the exFAT patch.

    You can choose to install the .XCI files as you would a .NSP file.

    Best to return it for an unpatched one. You will probably be able to find multiple unpatched units by the time an exploit is released for the patched consoles. If for some reason you cannot get a hold of an unpatched Switch, then do not update the patched unit's firmware.

    I wroteup a thread on all of the different ways to properly shut down a console with AutoRCM. Keep in mind I did not do any testing with any dongles such as SX Pro but all other results should be the same.

    ChoiDujourNXv101 boots into a black screen whenever I load it from the Homebrew Menu. But, I can press the Home button to exit. Is there any particular reason why it won't load?

    Switch is always pretty warm (not hot) when left in the dock being off with autoRCM turned ON. This doesn't happen when it's powered. Should I just keep it always ON in the dock? Would it not be a big burden on the battery and/or damage it? I'm used to always turning off my consoles.

    If you have AutoRCM installed, then when you turn off your console from within the switch, it automatically enters RCM; you need to inject a payload like Hekate in order to properly shut it down.

    Yes, I know about this, but I'm on 6.2 and apparently I shouldn't turn it off. I just thought that autoRCM should require less power than normal Switch idle.

    Probably home.
    When the Switch is docked, it turns on. If you want to charge your AutoRCM Switch while off with it not draining battery,

    1- Turn it off / restart it from HOS. Now it should be in RCM.
    2- Plug the charger. Docking it won't work, you can't charge it while docked unless it's on Sleep Mode (afaik).
    3- Turn it off (injecting Hekate, pressing the power button for around 12 seconds, or however).

    But is it generally fine to just leave it on the dock in a "sleep" mode (I understand, that it's powered on) for a long time?

    RCM or AutoRCM don't have anything to do with battery life (unless of course you leave your console on RCM thinking it is completely off).

    What would you do with, say, your phone? Do you turn it off every time you stop using it? It's the same. Keep the Switch on Sleep Mode and turn it off every once in a while, when it is behaving weirdly or when you're not gonna use it for a long time.

    I understand what you're saying, but I don't use my phone/tablet while contantly charging. I killed a lot of notebooks batteries that I were using while charging.

    You need to have the dock connected to the AC adapter to use TV mode, so either don't use that mode or get over your preferences. If the console is made for this, it shouldn't do as much damage as you're thinking it might do.

    What CFW are you using and what firmware are you currently on?
    Its better to use your computer to format the SD card.

    I've uninstalled a game, but still see it in Checkpoint available. I've not used it to backup this game's saves. Is it okay? If not, is there a way to fix it?

    The latter; some people wish to avoid installing anything to their system which would risk a ban so they just bundle everything into a single .XCI file. Although they're still not out of the clear with a .XCI file and people have been banned for using only .XCI files before this was an option, they feel safer with these modified .XCI games.

    Not sure but you can see if another save manager can delete/detect it like EdiZon.

    Hi everyone, 2 days ago I run kosmos(atmosphere) cfw on my switch 4.1 with help from sdsetup web.
    I decided to update software without burning fuse and all goes ok,
    but when I decided to install games with tinfoil I spotted some of them start to asking me about update, but why?
    I'm running 6.2 cfw
    How to rid of that pop up?
