    Recently got Atmosphere 0.8.8 running on my Switch 8.0.0.

    Noticed that my power button stopped working when I'm trying to put it to sleep or to power down the Switch. Does anybody know how to fix this? Or at least some hb app that allows me to power down the Switch.

    Just sending a payload in of itself since its done before the system boots i.e. coldboot. Everything after that is what can lead to ban such as CFW or homebrew.
    Deja Vu can be made to work up to firmware 7.0.1

    No, I’m not talking about anything from a banning perspective.

    Besides, isn’t the reason behind hiding the Homebrew Channel in the gallery app is that it records it and any homebrew launched from within it as gallery usage?

    I’m pretty sure that’s how it worked when launching the HBC from within a game on the 3DS.

    Besides that Atmosphere has patches to block telemetry and reporting to Nintendo. SciresM has a long history within the Nintendo homebrew community, so I have complete faith in him and his abilities.

    I’m not pirating anything, I pay for all my games, and right now the only homebrew I use besides ChoiDujourNX is Checkpoint.

    All I want to know is if I can install an already downloaded update via the system settings. So I don’t have to go through the hassle of having to disable AutoRCM, boot into maintenance mode to delete the update, then renable AutoRCM.

    Well if you don't mean from a banning perspective, updating via system settings with AutoRCM enabled or ChoiDujourNX is just 2 different paths that lead to the same result. The ChoiDujourNX route is a lot more steps since you would to download the firmware files, put them on your SD card, launch CFW then ChoiDujourNX, and do the whole process from there while the system update is just one click. An official system update without AutoRCM enabled will burn your fuses as well as performing a system update either without CFW or on a version of Atmosphere less than 0.8.4 which you can easily check in system settings (before a system update is downloaded).

    Hi- currently on SX and looking to update to play newer games. System on 6.0.1, have a clean nand backup of 5.1. Not using emunand or autoRCM but I'm open to it if necessary.

    Wanting choudijour info: should I create an emunand on SD and then update FW on emunand? And sysnand would remain on 6.x?

    If you create EmuNAND and update EmuNAND, SysNAND will stay on 6.0.1. Normaly people use EmuNAND for offline CFW and clean SysNAND for online.

    Thanks- wish I would have done more research before moving forward. Wondering what went wrong here. Just went from 6.2 to 7.1 with Choidujour and am getting black screen after attempting to launch CFW (and OFW) from SX menu screen. No Nintendo splash and no switch splash screens. I know I'm not totally screwed (yet) but I'll need help fixing this! Suppose I need to do a nand restore which will take me back to 5.1 with no exfat support. So then I would reformat SD to Fat 32, split the nand to work on that format, then attempt choudijour update again?

    Using RCM for first time.. what are the risks?

    Sleep mode issues in SX? or was this resolved a while ago?

    Battery issues? drains, overheating? Problems recharging or rebooting if battery is run down during either idleness or play?

    I really don't mind taking an extra 4 seconds using the jig to avoid any potential issues. If I could just disable through SX menu I will. But that leads me to this:

    I can no longer boot into OFW due to fuse check? Via either the SX options menu or just from powering on with no SD? Currently on 7.0 from 6.0.1 via choidujoir. Does having RCM enabled help with this fuse issue in some way?

    And not really related, but

    What about the emunand feature in SX? A few months ago folks here convinced me that the feature (on release) did not perform as advertised. But I think it may have been addressed by TX a while ago. Is it worth adding the hidden partition and using emunand? Now that my systems on 7.0 via choudijour what would I do at this point? Keep sysnand on 7.0 and update (eventually!) emunand to 8.0? I never backed up my 6.0.1 nand since it was pretty 'dirty' but my pre CFW nand backup (5.1) is intact. So if I have this, anything I mess up in the future can likely be fixed via a nand restore? Within reason of course :)

    Thanks all! Been saving up some questions over here lol

    1) Just make sure to power the console off from sx os menu when you have enabled autoRCM.
    2) If you have enabled autoRCM you can't simply boot in OFW because as soon as you boot your console, it directly enters RCM. You have to boot to OFW from the sx os menu. AutoRCM prevents that you boot to OFW with Nintendo boot loader in order to prevent fuses burning.
    3) EmuNAND allows you to keep SysNAND clean and play online while you run CFW in offline EmuNAND. Also you don't have to mess with SysNAND anymore. If EmuNAND bricks, just create a new one. But if you don't have created a backup of your clean SysNAND you should NOT use it for online.

    Fatal error NXBoot... I have a hackable switch and I managed to downgrade my Switch but I can't run atomosphere anymore. I restrored my NAND to downgrade so what is wrong and what do I have to do to run CFW again?

    My brother accidentally downgraded from 7.0.1 to 4.0.1 for some reason it wont load past nintendo logo. Did i brick my console? Or is there hopefully a fix for this? I had 9 fuses burned.

    Goldleaf is too buggy for my tastes. My personal recommendation is using USB install with Tinfoil and Aluminum Foil as the Windows client. That link also has a build of Tinfoil for you to download in case you don't have a working one already.

    Reformat your SD card to FAT32.

    When you say you restored your NAND, what exactly did you restore? What is your console's fuse count? You can check this by booting Hekate -> Tools -> Fuse Info. And what firmware was your NAND backup?

    You have to load Hekate directly to dump those keys.

    How did he downgrade? And did he perform a system initialization when downgrading? If not, try holding both volume + and - after sending a payload that boots CFW/OFW
