    Sooooo....... I see all these members with multiple medals all pinned to their member links like General Patton :-)
    Then I ask what has to be a simple question *I get a lock screen after a "Game Update" on Sys 6.2.0 with Atmosphere 0.8.5 for NSP - Super Mario Odyssey UPD v1.3 - Never hear anything???? I figured with all those medals we'd have some help (?). Nothing. I didn't want to try for a Firmware update to 8.0 -8.1 because so new and issues as always with new CFW. So I waited. Well tonight I bumped into a mention of using TINFOIL to remove the update "and" RESET the required version (on Super Mario Odyssey of all things at YouTube) - BINGO!!! So I install the additional Tinfoil files (use Tinfoil only for hbg myself) needed to reset to FIX this problem, but now doesn't work because I'm on a lower firmware did not have the "push Y button for reset" option to fix it.

    STUCK again....but reasoned that this TINFOIL was a Update of an older DevMenu - I went searching.....found on Youtube a link for DevMenu install for 6.x - Longest story made sorta short.......that worked. I used Goldleaf - My prefered NSP installer for the DevMenu install instead of the Tinfoil YouTuber mentioned since it was an old video anyway, I figured Goldleaf would work now

    *I' really don't know what happened. NOOB section not much help for me on this. I will try to update to v1.2 and if screen freezes....I have a save option now in DevMenu.

    Did we forget guys - or just to much trouble ;-)

    This DevMenu or the "Tinfoil" option of removing this REQUIRED Update (NAG) after a failed or not wanted update is to HELPFULL to forget about "Ever".

    There is NO WAY to play the game again if you run into trouble or don't want those updates again.

    *I got the SMO v1.3 update at HBG and don't know why it allowed the download to begin with - all other updates will not install or initialize if my firmware it to low.
    Should look into getting that fixed or a warning about it's Firmware or Payload needs - it WILL block out a Noob or misinformed "player".

    I'm assuming it works somewhere above 6.2.0 or Above 0.8.5 CFW AMS

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Update v1.2 for Super Mario Odyssey WORKS for my Firmware and CFW setup. Sys 6.2.0 - Atmosphere 0.8.5

    Deja Vu is basically what patched Switches have to use to run RCM payloads.
    You can install AutoRCM once you get into RCM at least once. You still have to tear your hair out getting into RCM with the pin shorting first.

    Did you search for serial number information to be sure it could be hacked? https://gbatemp.net/threads/switch-...he-first-post-before-asking-questions.481215/ that will give you a "Definite / Maybe / NO" answer. If you have a Definite or Maybe - You MUST get the Black Screen Using an RCM Jig (no other way) and follow TEST payload or booting CFW with Atmosphere or ReiNX or XS OS (your choice) "cough"....Atmosphere :-)

    Some of those RCM Jigs require you to put a piece of paper clip (stiff copper wire easier on your switch connections) into the plastic and then slide down onto the right rail guide - many times this paper clip will slip up a little out of the jig and not make contact. This is what my 2nd Jig did all the time. I would gently push the protruding clip down a little and it would connect for me, then push the power + volume. After awhile I just super glued it into place when I knew paper clip would always work (push clip down solid and glue) *Away from your Switch until it dries. I would suggest filing down the front side of the clip "tips" with a slight angle and put back in jig before securing. That way it has an easier glide into the rail contacts because rough tips are fixed. You will need to always use the power + button. But after you get CFW going you have an option to use AutoRCM that no longer needs an RCM Jig to be used but you will need to push the power button. You will also need either a "Payload Injector" (cheap and recommended) or data cable and use TegraRcmGUI software (and a payload) on PC to boot the payloader. Payloader is ONLY needed if you turn Switch totally off (sleep mode not needed-okay) or if you have complete battery discharge OR if your Switch falls on it's face with a bad or incompatible custom firmware boot attempt causing a freeze screen (hold power button down for 8+ seconds to hard reboot). *Will need to use payloader again. So if all is good you can put Jig away (don't lose your key) and not worry about funny button pushes unless those troubles happen.

    Thanks for reply, its in the maybe section hence the difficulty!
    RCM jig that I have already has the copper so won't be able to take your suggestion and yes still need to get the first RCM boot before I can autoRCM :(

    Sounds like you have a patched Switch most likely if it wont go into RCM Mode. If is new enough then take it back. I know Best Buy in my area still has hackable serial numbered consoles on their shelves, mixed in with the patched units. Copy serial number list to phone and find one. Have to go to different Best Buy stores to find them maybe. In my area they have most up high on a stock shelf, with only a few 6 or 7 down below for customer access. Just tell them your looking for a low serial number console and they "will" look through some quickly to help make a sale. Craigslist is good for a nice used machine. But dang - they want New Prices nearly for the ones around here (and not knowing about hack serial numbers). Nearly ALL your used ones will be hackable.

    Hey thanks for your concern, i've been told that all switches are able to enter RCM mode irrespective of it being patched or not. Only difference is that you might not be able to inject the payload. I've tried hitting up all my second hand stores and nothing proved fruitful :(

    Yeah, also patched switch consoles can enter RCM but you can’t inject a payload.

    I have a question. I am very new to this. I plan on using nx loader to inject the payload for xs os. Does the phone need to be connected the whole time or just when the payload is injected ????

    Only when you inject the payload.

    Reinstall them.

    I personally recommend just switching to FAT32 because it won't corrupt your SD card and you don't have to worry about updating to the exFAT version of your firmware. There are ways around the 4 GB limitation on FAT32 which involve splitting your files and installing via USB/network. If you don't want to do those and don't mind the risk of corruption, you can install the exFAT version of your firmware either offline with tools like ChoiDujourNX or online via Nintendo.

    Hi , is there a way to play Backups on a newer already patched Switch?
    Or do I really need an old switch?

    Probably home.
    Currently, you need an unpatched Switch. But later on there'll be software exploits released for 7.0.1=>, so if you're patient...

    K, I was stuck wondering before I went to bed that I might be incorrect about the RCM Mode on Patched units myself. Didn't get to looking that up unfortunately. Thank you. And Best of luck.

    *You are holding down volume + first and then holding power button down next along with it?
    Some might think that you got to get them both at the same time.....just be sure power button is last but holding a few seconds with the + also.

    I'm currently in the process of backing up my data to switch over to FAT32 after hearing that ExFat users are at significant risk for data corruption.


    What program should I use to format my SD afterwards? Also, why can't I copy data to my SD Card when I use an SD Card adapter? But I can take data from my SD Card, is this something related to ExFat or is it just a problem with my card reader?

    I used h2format for formatting to FAT32. Maybe your adapter is faulty or locked?

    I bought a switch on ebay (parts or repair) and found the usb port is badly damaged and needs replaced. Now this is a xaw40005600000 serial and can be hacked. When i plug in a battery from another switch i cant get it to come on. Is there any way i can test it to see if its got autorcm mode enabled without a usb port?
