    @Draxzelex Its been awhile not asking any questions so I'm back lol. With the latest v3.0. software update for Super smash it requires System update to play the game and since now Atmosphere supports the firmware I'm woundering from where I can download the official offline v8.0 firmware files to update my switch with ChoidujourNX

    Also what is RCM bug patched and how do I know if my switch is affected

    Hi guys I would really appreciate some help. So I just updated to the latest atmosphere and then things got weird. So I'm used to just going to the "reboot to payload" so that I can take out my sd card freely without the switch turning off. Then I would just scroll using the volume button to "launch CFW". Now I can't even get to that screen so it seems like I constantly have to plug my switch in again to inject the payload with this new update? That's more inconvenient.

    Also now when I launch Tinfoil a red screen warning comes up saying that I'm using Hektate/Kosmos and I can't see NSP files to install even though they are on my SD card. How do I work around these two issues?

    Firmware files are copyrighted but Smash's v3.0 update can be run on firmware 7.0.1. I downloaded it from Nintendo's servers while I was on that firmware.

    The console you are referring to are "ipatched" units. The current exploit, Fusee Gelee, relies on a bug in RCM which is built into the hardware of the Switch meaning they cannot fix it via a firmware update. Instead, they ship units where they apply ipatches at the factory to the bootrom where the console is loaded which patches out Fusee Gelee. Unless you are buying a recent-ish console or sent it to Nintendo for repairs, it is impossible for you to have one as just explained, the exploit is hardware-dependent not software-dependent meaning no firmware update will ever patch out Fusee Gelee for currently exploitable consoles.

    If you are using the latest version of Kosmos, they set it so Hekate autoboot CFW. If you want to enter the Hekate menu instead of autobooting, hold volume +

    Might have mixed up the buttons. Try holding volume -

    And also is the tinfoil warning serious? Or is it something that I can just ignore?

    The Tinfoil that I know of presents no warning no matter what CFW you use. However I do know of an application named DZ which can install .XCI files. However, these .XCI files are not supported with Kosmos hence the warning. They are supported with ReiNX, SX OS, and Atmosphere with the sweet patches. The reason is because they require ACID patches which are impossible to use in conjunction with Hekate.

    I am getting update nags on my Switch (6.2.0 AMS), after my kid inserted the original cart. Not sure if he connected to WiFi too. But, when I try to reset cache with Recovery Mode it automatically turns on WiFi despite it being in Airplane Mode. The game concerned is Flying Red Hat. I am getting a little frustrated here. I install v1.3 update and it crashes. I uninstalled and reinstall the game and nothing.

    (Edit)
    Same problem with Kaboom Cousins and Brick: Urban Underground. All other backups work. I have already entering Recovery Mode by long pressing both Volume +, Volume -, and Power On. Then releasing Power On. Then it loads the Recovery Mode, instead of getting 'Delete' I get 'Initialize'. Reboot. And the update nag (Cloud Icon) disappears and reappears because WiFi is still on despite being on Airplane Mode.

    So, then I erase User Save Data with both Nintendo Data Management and DevMenu. Uninstalled the game. And reinstalled without any update, system then asks for game update. I install the update and then it crashes on loading.

    Bought a colored joycon switch from amazon, it was patched. Just bought a switch with exploit at walmart few days ago. Had the guy at walmart read me serials until one hit green. There were 2 expoitable and one maybe. Seemed as the grey con ones are more likely probably because less popular. They are still out there, and plenty of them. Well the patched tablet is going to mistakenly end up in the walmart ones box when i return it lol. Good Luck

    Trying to boot into RCM mode - cant seem to get it using tinfoil and a 3d printed rcm jig, just wanted to confirm, if you short any other pin then required would the device not turn on at all?

    (turns on after i remove the jig, while holding it for a while)

    I had trouble getting into RCM with a jig. I ended up following this guide and it worked first time

    Now For My Nooby Questions:

    Hi all. I'm pretty new to the scene. I have a Switch that I bought from eBay that had been bricked. I managed to get it back and am now on 6.2 with 0.8.9 Atmosphere. When I try to play certain games I am getting an error that a software update is needed. So I wanted to ask how I can update my Switch FW without breaking my CFW.

    Adding to that, it has been banned from online services. Is there a way I can unban it at all? I saw this tutorial https://gbatemp.net/threads/any-way-to-edit-profile-and-fake-link-account.526255/ but I don't really understand it.

    Thank you

    Are you doing the bit with the tinfoil on your joycon? Spend some time getting it to the right size. I made sure to count 8 pins once I had the tinfoil in position then I taped it in place and it worked first time. Don't forget to hold the Volume + button when you power on.

    I bought my RCM Jig when they first started making them and had it sat in a draw until yesterday because my OG Switch was Patched. Was gutted that it didn't work. If you're using Hekate you will be able to enable AutoRCM which will automatically boot you into RCM Mode but you will need to have a payload injector nearby every time you power off.

    Does it just boot normally? Try removing the SD card when you are trying to get RCM

    While holding the volume + power on, it does nothing (like it should) but its not popping up on device manager. To add onto this, when i press the power button once it boots normally.

    No SD or game card either.

    Dont check the switch with the device manager. Use TegraRCM and check if it recognizes the switch in RCM.

    I presume that the switch is not in RCM mode?

    Go to settings on Tegra and click the Install Driver button. See if that helps
