    I ran some updates for Smash Ultimate and now I'm getting an error saying the DLC is unplayable. It does let me start the game afterwards, though. Any idea how to uninstall the problem DLC or get rid of the nag message?

    2 things:
    1. An unpatched unit relies on Fusee Gelee which is a hardware exploit aka not software aka firmware has no effect on your ability to hack the console. CFW is a different story as these are firmware-dependent as they are designed to either replace or patch certain aspects of every available firmware at the time. So for future reference, even if Nintendo releases firmware 20.0, you can still use CFW on your unpatched Switch as long as CFW supports that firmware
    2. Even though you are presently on firmware 8.0, you can still use Deja Vu if you downgrade your firmware to 7.X or below. 8.0 shares the same fuse count as 7.X so even if your fuse count matches that of firmware 7.X, you can still downgrade although a lower fuse count would be more ideal as lower firmwares will be getting Deja Vu sooner.

    Firmware? Also what updates for Smash did you install? And did you install all or some of the DLC? Lastly, CFW?

    Hello,

    sorry it's my first venturing here since been offered a Switch that happens to be in v3.0 and hackable, so I'll ask lots of questions!

    1/ Can I upgrade directly from 3 to 7 the OS?
    a/Using "choixdujournx" I can basically do that without burning any fuse, meaning that I can rollback (up to v3) if I want later, right?
    b/Is any version able to launch homebrews? Or is it locked to specific versions only?
    2/ If I understand well, emunand is copying the OS to an sdcard (or elsewhere) in order to launch the copy ?
    a/Can I play online games on emunand? If so, is there a ban risk?
    b/Are emunand tweaks and parameters saved or is it read only?
    c/Can I have an emunand version different from the system? (ex : sys at 3.0 and emunand at 6.2)
    d/What is recommended, using emunand as a separate partition in sdcard, or a file in the sdcard?​

    3/ I don't want to use the jig every time to boot on CFW (SXOS probably), so I want to use the auto-crm feature : is that a known modification that makes the switch banned online or is it safe to keep it?

    4/ What are the recommended precaution before doing anything? Saving/backuping stuff from untouched switch?

    5/Is it still recommended to only use FAT32 sdcard instead of exFAT?
    a/Is there any possibility of supporting ntfs or ext2 in the future by CFW?​

    First off, thank you for using numbering :D Makes it a whole lot easier for me to answer! Anyways...
    1. Yes although one thing you should be aware of is when you update from a firmware below 4.0 to a firmware above 4.0, your cartridge slot will become irreversibly updated. The impact of this is that you won't be able to use cartridges on firmwares below 4.0 as well as utilize any exploits involving the cartridge slot on those same firmware versions. There are ways of blocking it which will depend on what you use but regardless of whether or not you want to prevent your slot from being updated or not, updating without burning fuses ensures you will be able to downgrade back to 3.0 in case a better exploit is released for lower firmwares. And all firmwares support homebrew since the exploit being used is hardware-based, not software-based meaning firmware is irrelevant
    2. Yes, EmuNAND is a copy of your OS (or eMMC to be super specific) and launching it from another location. Generally, people use SysNAND for playing online as that is less risky in comparison to EmuNAND since SysNAND is unmodified while EmuNAND is technically a slightly modified SysNAND. Not sure what you mean by tweaks or parameters but the whole purpose to EmuNAND is to have a separate firmware from SysNAND. If an exploit works on a certain firmware, such as Gateway, then the only way to update without losing the exploit is by utilizing EmuNAND as SysNAND will need to remain on that certain firmware in order to launch the exploit. EmuNAND as a separate partition is the least detectable form but it is the hardest to migrate to another SD card while the file on the SD card is easier to move from card to card but is logically more detectable than the partition method.
    3. No one has been banned for only using AutoRCM ever since it has been released. It is reasonable to assume this modification is safe from a banning perspective
    4. Made a backup of your boot0/boot1 as well as your eMMC raw GPP aka your NAND. Since the eMMC raw GPP is around 29 GB due to pre-allocated empty space, you can dump eMMC SYS instead if you want a smaller but just as effective NAND backup. Be aware though that eMMC SYS does not contain your save data or installed content; that is all saved in the eMMC USER portion. Also in case it wasn't clear, the eMMC raw GPP is comprised of the eMMC SYS and eMMC USER
    5. There is no reason to use exFAT on the Switch anymore as there are workarounds for every type of >4 GB file that you would use on the Switch (USB install, split files, etc.) There is also no one working on adding support for other file systems for the Switch although from a hypothetical standpoint, it is technically possible to add

    Thanks for answering me, I'm kinda lost with all the acronyms as I'm new to all of this :)


    1/Alright, is there any consequence of not updating the cartdridge like known malfunction or corruption with later system version?

    2/So technically I can keep my sysNAND to v3 and have my emuNAND set to v7? Also I suppose that using emuNAND in the Internet is risky then?

    3/Alright, good.

    4/Alright, so basically if I do that in case of any problem I can restore that to make my system as good as freshly installed?

    5/Do you have a link explaining all these workarounds?

    Backing up my 7.0.1 switch, although I don’t think it makes too much of a difference but I’m backing up while I have autorcm on, if my switch ever gets bricked, will there be a issue when I need to restore my backup.

    Hi! I've had a patched switch for a while now and I just got a AMS ver 0.8.4 switch (got it jailbroken, i only know the basics) and I'm wondering how to transfer my save files from the legit switch to the cfw one. Do i just connect the jailbroken switch to the internet, make a linked account with the same email, and just transfer the save files over? Thanks!

    Now I’m a bit confused, so I already backed up and now I need to know if there’s a point in backing up package 1/2, I went back to this tutorial I used back when I first backed up my switch and noticed that this was added as step 1,was that just put there to make sure sept was on my sd card.

    I just updated my switch from 4.1 to 7.0.1 and installed the latest AMS (0.8.7). But now everytime I install an NSP and run it, the console shows a popup asking for an internet connection and wont let me start the game. How can I fix this internet popup?

    I need to link account in order to play specific games wich require it obligatory. I got a copy of SYSTEM/SAVE/8000000000000010 file with linked acc but it hangs the console probably because was taken from 6 fw and my console is on 7.0.1. So the question is where I can get a 8000000000000010 file for 7.0.1 fw?

    Alright it worked like a charm! You sir are a wizard.
    Just a few more questions please.
    It looks like Gold Leaf has a browser now. My switch is unbanned and never went online. If I use the 90s DNS, am I able to go to youtube or twitch or just browse the web? How safe am I from being detected and banned?

    Is there an easy way to install games on to a switch whilst its powered on? IE sending them over from a laptop via usb? If so, thats the best or easiest method / program to do so?

    90DNS blocks Nintendo servers. YouTube and twitch should work but I can’t say 100% because I never tried. If you care about not getting banned I wouldn’t recommend to go online. In the end YouTube and twitch also work on smartphones and that’s why I don’t need it.

    Hi everyone,
    I’m looking for some help I have a noob question , I’ve just bought a SX Pro and booted into the sx menu on my switch I enabled Auto Rcm and then done a Nand backup , Should I have done a backup before enabling Auto Rcm mode or does it make any difference in regard to having a clean Nand backup ? And if so can I just disable Auto Rcm and do another Nand backup to give me a clean Nand , Also what does the repair gpt option do , I haven’t ran the cfw or done anything else yet except the Auto Rcm and Nand backup so far,
    Thanks
