    Back again, I saved and copy the NAND with Hekate (eMMC Boot 0/1 and eMMC RAW GPP). I even did the Bis keys backup.

    Now I'm creating the EmuNAND.
    1) Is "Hidden Partition on microSD" the best choice? (in case Nintendo scans the sdcard)
    Seems obvious to do so but I want to be sure.

    2) I just realized that SX OS menu gives you the choice to boot in CFW or OFW.
    Should I activate auto RCM and launch OFW via SX OS?
    Or is it better to boot the Switch normally (without RCM) for OFW.

    3) Is Stealth Mode automatically activated on EmuNAND?

    Corruption doesn't always affect the entire SD card. Corruption usually affects only some of the files on the SD card.

    1. Nintendo doesn't scan the SD card. If they did, they can just check for boot.dat instead of EmuNAND. But if you're super paranoid, you can go for hidden partition. Also realize that the hidden partition is the hardest type of EmuNAND to transfer from SD card to SD card
    2. If you do not want to burn fuses, AutoRCM is pretty much mandatory unless you plan on never turning off the console and making sure it never runs out of battery. If you want to launch OFW without burning fuses, that is what the OFW option is for
    3. I believe so

    Okay Thanks, I will just use Files on microSD for EmuNAND.
    I'll also activate auto RCM and choose whether I go in CFW or OFW from there.

    Once the EmuNAND is done, can I go on OFW and set back my parameters (Wifi, legit games saves etc) and play let's say Smash online?
    I erased everything and put in on my PC before proceding Switch's hack.

    There is no need to back up my NAND when I'm done with CFW? I just reboot and launch OFW in SX OS right?
    Theoretically, It should be fine but 0% risk doesn't exist.

    You should be booting OFW in SysNAND once EmuNAND is done to play online. And the purpose of backing up your NAND is to recover from a brick. With EmuNAND, all you need is a copy of the EmuNAND itself but with SysNAND, you need a NAND dump if that ever gets bricked which includes boot0/boot1 as well as the eMMC raw GPP. If you already have a NAND dump, you don't really need to make another.

    I'm kinda lost now, I thought it was working like this :
    -EmuNAND : CFW + always offline
    -SysNAND : OFW + Online + legit cartridges
    Can you highlight me on that one please?

    Heh, I don't blame you for being confused since the wording implies you go online with EmuNAND. What I meant was once EmuNAND is done, you should be booting OFW in SysNAND to play online.

    This next point you can ignore since it does not apply to you but EmuNAND's purpose isn't to be used offline. In fact, for patched units who cannot update past firmware 7.0.1 in order to use Deja Vu so they have a way of booting CFW will have to rely on EmuNAND in order to go online. Deja Vu is a warmboot exploit chain that is firmware-dependent and once you update past the firmware versions it supports, you will not be able to use it anymore. And the thing is the firmware versions required to go online surpass Deja Vu's supported firmware versions. So in order to enjoy the benefits of being on a higher firmware and more importantly play online, you will not only need EmuNAND to be on the latest firmware but you can only go online in EmuNAND not SysNAND.

    How do I turn on my R4S dongle? Left it to charge Sunday, then pressed and held the button to turn off the blue light, then, the next morning, it wouldn't launch the payload, or turn on the blue light...

    Good day. I recently had my sd card go corrupt on me. I copied all the content to my PC. How can I restore the games in the "Nintendo" folder?

    Hey guys, I have my Switch on 5.1 (or something very very old) and I want to update because the next pokemon game will probably prompt me to do it. I have SX OS. What should I do? It's been such a long time since I've read about it that I don't know anything

    Unless you update your firmware, you're SOL. There are ways of rebuilding .NSP files to work on lower firmware revisions but they don't really seem to work.

    And I mean this in a general sense, even if it's impossible for Sword and Shield to use the latest firmware.

    Using SX OS and creating emuNAND on the 1.0.0 console, can I update to 8.0.x without burning fuses? Is this a concern since OFW would see burnt fuses even though it's never been updated? Alternatively, I could update 8.0.x on the OFW. Would I lose anything potentially interesting by updating OFW to the latest? Thanks

    The OS doesn't give a shit about the eFuses: only the bootloader does.
    8.0 users cannot use Deja Vu, but that's not really a huge blow if you can use the RCM exploit on both consoles.

    Not 100% sure the secondary console is RCM exploitable. I seem to recall it being in the "probably patched" serials and I don't have it currently in my possession to test if SX OS would boot.

    When you get the chance, test it and let us know.

    Will do. In the meantime, Deja Vu was an exploit that allowed for what? Homebrew?

    I also encounter a problem concerning the sdcard (exfat).
    When I want to launch CFW (EmuNAND enabled), I only get a black screen.

    1) Should I switch to FAT32 or boot in OFW and grab the exfat update for my sdcard?
    2) Considering I have an old switch model and it's on lastest FW, I just have to update it normally in OFW when there is a new update?

    Hi guys need a lil help. I'm unable to get the RCM for my switch going to check out if my switch can do all this homebrew business.
    I've used two jigs, and tinfoil with no luck - is there perhaps another way to boot up into RCM - preferably one that doesnt have to use the power and + button?
