    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

    I'm sorry I am all out of ideas. Fairly new to this myself. I'm having an issue where some games I install via NSP are getting corrupted

    Hi ! I'm finnaly setting up on cracking my Switch and I have a few questions :

    - Should I use NSP files over XCI, or the other way around ? Does it even matter ?
    - Should I worry about installing releases that match my region (EUR), or can I install USA/J games as well ?

    If you have SX OS you can also use XCI. All other CFW only support NSP. XCI mustn‘t be installed and are copies of cartridge games. NSP must be installed and are copies of eShop games. NSP are region free afaik, XCI not.

    7.0.0-8.0.0 has 9 burnt fuses. If you go back to 7.0.1, your switch will never know that you have upgraded before and downgraded back. So yes, you won't have to boot with custom payload.

    If they are saying a software update is needed, that is referring to game updates (game=software) not the system (a system update refers to updating your firmware). Anyway if you need to update your Switch firmware, you can do so with the homebrew application ChoiDujourNX.

    That thread you linked involves linking a Nintendo Account without connecting the console to the Internet. It has nothing to do with bans. There is also no practical way to unban a console. There are proof-of-concepts where people inject another Switch's certificate via tools such as Charles but this isn't practical because you would need a second unbanned console certificate and no one is willing to share theirs meaning you would have to buy a second unbanned console at which point you could simply use online rather than to unban the first console.

    i cannot seem to get the mortal kombat xci to install - in all honesty its appearing white just like the SSBU did prior to the new update you had to have etc.

    i havent read anything saying 8.x was required but if im running what 7.0.1 now i believe then why is this showing up whit as if its corrupted. Im actually attempting to put the xci and its update file which is an nsp onto an sd with no other games to determine if space was possibly the issue trouble shooting althought i have never seen such a thing - the games update is very large so for that reason I figure might as well try the last option i have while i ask for input.

    I'm running into issues jailbreaking my switch for the first time.
    In short I am able to see the switch in RCM mode on my machine and attempt to inject the payload (hekate). TegraRCM tells me it was injected successfully but my switch remains black and no menu pops up to proceed...

    Troubleshooting I've already tried from searching forums:
    - Both USB ports
    - USB 2.0 and 3.0
    - Using Zadig as possible driver solution

    Excited to get this working and have sunk a bunch of time troubleshooting, rebooting etc... on my own so any help would be appreciated. Would be happy to try other methods if you think they would work (ie web install, SX OS Pro dongle etc...)

    My Setup:
    Switch Serial XAW70015XXXX (unpatched and safe to use per sheets and Serial Checker Tool)
    Switch Firmware 7.0.1

    Windows Edge 10 running on a MacBook via Virtual Box *Note have used this same setup to hack SNES Mini w/ Hakchi2

    Tools/Versions:
    TegraRCMGUI Portable 2.5
    Kosmos v12.1.2 w/ Atmosphere 0.8.9
    Payload: Hekate_ctcaer_4.10.1.bin

    Is there a way I can find a step-by step Guide to modify my Switch. There is only three things I want to do

    -Extract saves of Pokemon games(Both Let's Go and later on Sword/Shield), put them onto a PC, modify them with PKhex, then put them back onto the system.
    -Update Firmware without blowing fuses(The firmware for the switch in question is 4.1.0)
    -Being able to still go online with it(even if it means having to constantly clear the Micro SD). I could care less about multiplayer features or buying digital games(I have a unmodified Switch for both of those things), I just want to update firmware of my physical games

    I do not care about anything else, like fancy homebrew programs or fan mods

    Guide for hacking your switch: https://guide.sdsetup.com
    1) Use Checkpoint.
    2) Use ChoiDujourNX.
    3) You don't need to take your switch online for game updates. Simply download the update as .nsp file and install it.
