    No autoRCM is a high risk of burning fuses in your case. If you forget to boot in RCM or press the wrong buttons once, your fuses will be burned. Thats why autoRCM is highly recommended.

    But when enable autoRMC to prevent battery drain must full/real shut it down and then again to boot the Switch is required a way to put the payload, autoRMC only stop from boot (as the need of jig) into the OFW?

    If you have autoRCM installed you won't boot in OFW with the nintendo bootloader anymore and thats the only bootloader for now which burns fuses. Of course you need to inject the payload everytime if you turn off the console but that protects you from accidentally loading the nintendo bootloader.

    need help with FTP. I've tried FTPD and sysFTPD dowloaded from the Homebrew Store. The app in the switch itself seems to be working, based on my experience with my other Switch. But filezilla can't connect to it, it just times out. Any ideas?

    Is it recommended to only back up the eMMc SYS if I already used checkpoint to backup all my save data if ever I need to restore a bricked switch? I don't have a SD card that's bigger than 32 GB and I don't want to buy one just for this one occassion. Is there anything else I need to backup other than eMMc SYS in the hekate tools? Do I need the keys and other boot files that I saw in many tutorial videos that don't seem to be included in the SYS dump? Thanks!

    Any CFW is fine as they all do the basic functions of what a CFW should do including homebrew, backups, and emulators. There are a few caveats relevant to each CFW that make them stand out from each other.
    • ReiNX is an easy and lightweight CFW that gets the user from Point A to Point B in no time flat. It has all of the essential functions of a CFW without too much work on the user. One advantage of ReiNX is that it supports .XCI files installed with ZeroTwoXCI and all .XCI to .NSP file conversions. This is due to a special patch applied to those backups which are not found in other CFW rendering them unplayable
    • Atmosphere does what ReiNX does but is more designed for developers. It has a few of its own unique features. It prevents AutoRCM from being disabled during online system updates. It also now has a way for users to reboot CFW without sending a payload. Note this does not mean you can turn off the console and not send a payload; it simply means you can send a payload without turning your console off. A quality of life feature Atmosphere has is displaying the version number of the CFW next to your current system firmware. In the future, Atmosphere will also have EmuNAND support which is a feature ReiNX does not plan to implement
    • SX OS is the most unique CFW in more ways than one. It has its own EmuNAND implementation, cheat engine, HDD support, and .XCI loading. All of this comes at the cost of it being paid. And not all of the features are entirely exclusive to SX OS. The cheat engine can be replicated with sys-net cheat. HDD support only allows for .XCI files whereas you can install .NSP files via USB with any CFW. And while SX OS is the only CFW to support drag-and-drop .XCI files, you can install .XCI files with all CFW (although for Atmosphere, you cannot use ZeroTwoXCI)

    Nothing absolutely requires firmware 6.2. There are updates that use that new key introduced in firmware 6.2 but you can patch those updates with NSC Builder to work on their real firmware requirements (the firmware they were programmed to work with, not encrypted with).

    If you want to update, I recommend updating with the homebrew application ChoiDujourNX (this is the name you were trying to recall). It allows you to update your firmware without burning fuses. This is relevant in case a better exploit is released on lower firmwares. If you are fine with booting CFW with a jig and USB cable/modchip, then you can disable AutoRCM during the installation process. If you want to preserve your fuses and/or just like using AutoRCM in general, then just install the firmware with ChoiDujourNX as it enables AutoRCM by default.

    eMMC USER also contains all of your installed content of the internal memory so if you have any games, updates, or DLC that you installed to your NAND, they will be wiped out when you restore the eMMC SYS.

    For a complete NAND backup, you should also dump boot0/boot1 since these are semi-console specific (they cannot be 100% regenerated). Keys can be dumped as long as your console has juice left in the tank but aren't necessarily bad to have on hand. Be aware that there are two types of keys; console-specific and public. The only console-specific keys are the bis keys which are only used for decrypting the NAND via hacdiskmount. The public keys are, as the name implies, keys shared across all consoles and can be dumped with various tools ranging from HACGUI, kezplez, and Lockpick.

    Hi that guide is horribly out of date at this point in time. As long as it has an exploitable serial number (check HERE or HERE) then it is exploitable by fusee gelee.

    From there there are 3 CFW's available which drax mentioned a few posts up.

    I also recommend doing a nand backup using hekate before cfw if it is hackable with fusee :)

    Additionally after it is hacked and you want to connect online for FTP or online play using xlink or lanplay then I recommend running 90DNS which blocks connection to nintendos servers.

    It is recommended that before you do use 90dns that you run the included tester included in the optional steps to make sure it isn't hijacked by your ISP.

    If you need any more help then feel free to message here again and someone will help you out :)

    You need one license for each switch. But you can use the dongle on both switches since it only inject the payload.

    A NAND backup has nothing to do with being a developer. It is something that you can use in case your console ever bricks so you don't have to waste another $300.
