    Hey all,

    Been reading up on this because I want to backup my saves but I've been completely out of the game. Never modded my Switch or anything.

    I have a serial number that starts with XAW10001, so it looks like I'd be able to get Atmosphere 8.0 even though I'm on the latest version of 8.0.

    If I'm getting this right, all I need to do is get a jig, follow the guides to put all the right things on my SD card, and I'd be set?

    As long as your serial number is unpatched, you can setup CFW by using a jig to boot into RCM, sending a payload with a USB-C cable from your computer or phone, and putting some files on your SD card. If you need a guide, I recommend following this one: https://guide.sdsetup.com/

    Are banned cartridges still a problem? Should people be concerned with buying second hand games for unmodded systems?

    Oh... It was never a problem then? I recall a tweet from SciresM saying cart certificates being banned...

    When SX OS initially came out, several people did report having their legitimate cartridges get banned with the error code you are mentioning but as of recently, those reports have decreased. You also may not know if your cartridge is banned or not if your system is banned as I'm unsure which error code would appear first, the console or cartridge ban. But I would say its still a potential issue. Heck, even if the used cartridge isn't banned, someone could have easily bought the game, dumped the certificate/header, and returned the game which means you risk getting banned if you play that game online.

    Guys I have some questions.
    So what happens if my switch gets CDN banned?
    I cant download my eshop games anymore? Can i even buy games?? What happens with cartige games like Doom which needs download to even start the game?
    Does anybody has this problem from experience?

    This thread has a full explanation on what a CN ban entails although you're very unlikely to not incur one as the main reason they were imposed was due to people abusing CDN downloading which is no longer an issue since CDN downloading is dead to the public.

    After updating to the latest hekate/Atmosphere releases is it safe to update via System Settings, or should I use ChoiDojourNX?

    If I'm downgrading from 8.0.0 to 7.0.1, I can turn off AutoRCM since they have the same fuses right?

    Havent been on this site in years after being able to put homebrew on my 3ds but...Got a switch either beginning january or last christmas. Wanted to know if it was possible to mod it. Think I read somewhere that if a Switch was bought after july 2018 it cannot be modded. But just wanted to make sure. Thanks again

    Check for sig Patches first, if you have latest patches, then reinstall the game.

    You can use devmenu or hbgshop, probably corruption if your other games work.
