    Hello,

    some new questions, since last time :
    1/It seems like the wifi disables itself regularly if the Switch can't detect Internet connectivity (either by fake dns or firewall blocking) : is there a way to force wifi up? Is the behavior the same using ethernet? I've bought an ethernet adpater anyway.
    2/Is there a way to monitor temps in the console?
    3/Is there a simple homebrew to see the number of fuses still on the Switch (without rebooting)?

    Although your serial number is listed as unpatched, there is a very slight possibility it is unpatched. Confirm that it is indeed unpatched by following this thread. If it shows as not patched or you want to try something else, use another USB cable and/or computer if possible.

    Well that depends, are you using stock Atmosphere or Kosmos? Although they both use Atmosphere as the CFW, you update respectively with the pack that you are using. A general rule of thumb is that for updating your CFW, you should delete everything except the Switch and Nintendo folders then paste the new folders. If you have any game mods, you should back those up beforehand. These are located in the (Name of the CFW you are using)/titles directory.

    Maybe try another CFW to see if its an SX OS related issue.

    1. Not without a wired connection, no.
    2. Not that I know of
    3. There is no homebrew application that can do so. The only tools that can display burnt fuses are payloads namely Hekate or briccmii.

    I'm confused. I just watched a video on YouTube which showed how to install an xci file to your sd card or internal on free CFM. They installed crash Bandicoot using tinfoil and were not using sx os. Now is this corect or incorrect?

    What he meant to say (I hope) is that SX OS is the only CFW that supports mounting .XCI files. All CFW, even free ones, support the installation of .XCI files. One reason I can surmise why he said you shouldn't install .XCI files is that it is nearly the same as installing a .NSP file apart from the fact that installing .XCI files don't install fake tickets which can ban you unlike installing .NSP files. But you can use both .XCI and .NSP files with all CFW. Its just that free CFW treat the .XCI files more like .NSP files.

    What CFW can I run using the tegra payload app to get something running this is so annoying I wasted a bunch of time. If theres a forum post about this already sorry but I can't Imagine such a large xci not working on sx pro or os. Grrrr same shit happened with super smash before the new update was applied

    Sorry, my answer was a bit confusing. It’s like @Draxzelex said. Only SX OS supports mounting of XCI. Other CFW also allows to install XCI but not mounting them. Also some people had issues installing XCI with Atmosphere that’s why I personally would use NSP on Atmosphere.

    You can use 4nxci to convert them to NSP files. I did it on two different games that I dumped from my cartridges yesterday and it worked perfectly

    Alright, I'm pretty sure I'm superbanned according to the Ban Hub. Because the FAQ mentioned that Ninty upgraded all bans to superbans (CDN Bans if im correct).

    But why could I update my console? I thought superbans prevented you from updating, last time I updated was from 6.0.x to 7.0. I was wondering if they did something that changed the way superbans worked.

    Also is there a new masterkey (stuff that helps Tinfoil/Goldleaf decrypt NSPs or whatever) in 8.0.x? I honestly don't mind being superbanned because there isn't much for me to do online on the Switch. But I want to make sure I can play newer games (esp. FE: Three Houses, rlly hyped for it) on my current firmware.

    Sorry what do you mean when you say mounting. What's the difference between mounting a game and installing?

    When you mount a game its like you put a real cartridge in the game card slot. For SX OS you enter the album, select the game and its mounted like a real cartridge.

    Yesterday i made a build with OFW(last version) + EmuNAND(2.6.2b SX OS with 6.0.1 FW) and all works fine, but today i cant boot into my OWF. After i press "Boot original FW" i got a black screen.

    There has been what I think another recent change. While at one point Nintendo was upgrading everyone to CDN bans (I don't really like the term superban), this was to minimize CDN downloading. However now that CDN downloading is dead to the public, there is not much reason for them to distribute CDN bans anymore which is why I believe most if not all CDN bans have been reversed.

    As for your second question, 8.X does not introduce a new masterkey compared to 7.X therefore stuff requiring 8.X will be far off into the future.

    If you are trying to boot "OFW" from the SX OS menu while you have AutoRCM active and SysNAND is on firmware 8.X, you cannot as SX OS does not support 8.X. Either disable AutoRCM or downgrade SysNAND to a firmware SX OS supports.

    Hello. So i am trying to figure if my switch is hackable or not, and my serial falls under the patched category (above XAJ7005X). I want to ask if there is any record of any switch above this serial being vulnerable to the exploit and if it is worth me trying to see if it is exploitable. Thanks

    Thank you, i am going to try it, although i doubt it will work since i bought my switch in February 2019, the let's go special edition, and the serial is outside the ranges. Ill test it later today.

    I'm having wifi issues since I switched to atmosphere (8.0).
    The little WiFi icon stays greyed out only for a second it gets white.
    In my router settings I can see its authenticating and getting its ip address every 1-2 seconds
    It seems that the switch is trying to establish the connection over and over and over again even though its already connected

    Is there a way to reset the system without losing savegames or installed games? Or anything else I can do?

    edit: in case someone has this issue
    i upgraded from 7.x(exfat) to 8.0(fat) and got wifi issues
    i just upgraded from 8.0(fat) to 8.0.1(exfat) and the wifi issues disappeared

    Can I update Atmosphere (Kosmos) simply replace the old files with the new files from v12.1.2 (AMS 0.8.9) on my microSD card?

    (Edit)
    How does ArgonNX work? I have a R4s Dongle. Can it catch errors? For example, I try to launch ReiNX or SX OS, but there is no bin file.
