    Veery noobish: I have a patched XAJ7005XX device with 8.0.1

    Now, is it a definitive no to homebrew via software now and in the future? What are my options now?

    No option for you at the moment, as patched unit doesn't get access to pushing a payload in RCM Mode, and the access to Deja Vu exploit so you are stuck at the moment until they come out with something for patched unit.

    Is SX Installer or Gold Leaf better for installing NSPs on a fat32 SD?

    Hey, so i followed a guide that neglected to tell me to create a nand backup before doing anything. And it’s too late cause I’ve already created emunand and installed nsps and such. I’m just curious if anyone has any tips on what I should do, if anything. Thanks for all your help in advance

    I pretty much forgot about homebrew for a while, cause last time I checked it was impossible on the switch and when I got the switch, I wanted to play online, so that's why.

    Hi, I'm new and learning about switch hb. I plan to install Kosmos. I wish to avoid burning fuses. Also I wish to avoid autoRCM. From what I read, I have to use a jig everytime the console is turned off, and on.
    So,
    -Can I leave a jig on 24/7? is there any downside to that?
    -Would that affect how I have to use the cfw/homebrew, if I leave the console in sleep mode?
    -Do I have to have a jig on whenever I update?
    -what happens if my electricity goes off when the switch is on sleep mode?(will it reboot when electricity is restored?, in this case, should a jig be on the switch to prevent any fuse to burn when the power comes back? )

    Just go to Nintendo's website, login with your account, and register your banned console as the Primary so your second Switch can become the Primary thus allow it to play your legally owned games more easily.

    Don't press the Home button whenever you are in any homebrew application except the homebrew menu.

    Sounds like you're missing these patches.

    No one has been banned for only using AutoRCM. I'm not necessarily saying its safe but there is no evidence to indicate Nintendo is currently detecting it.

    Sure

    Goldleaf is too buggy in my opinion. If you want an open source title installer, Adubbz Tinfoil is the best. Outside of that, you can go for DZ or SX Installer.

    Hard stop. It is practically impossible to avoid burning fuses but not use AutoRCM. You would need to make sure your console boots into RCM every time it is turned off meaning you need a jig with a 100% success rate which doesn't exist. There is no reason not to use AutoRCM unless you modified your Joy-Con or installed a trinket. If you have any doubts or worries, you can just read through this thread but I'm telling you its much easier and better overall to use AutoRCM to avoid burning fuses.

    I have all my switch games installed as .nsp

    When I launch a switch game (SX OS), should I hold R to open the Hbmenu, and launch the game from there?

    Or do my switch games (installed as .nsp) automatically load with full RAM?

    Thanks for your reply!
    Based on your faq thread I could understand that with autoRCM in Atmosphere version 0.8.4+:
    [please correct me if I'm wrong]
    1-I can perform system updates without losing autoRCM. With an offline method fuses would be preserved.
    2-I can shut down properly from horizon and or Hecate(kosmos 12.2 supports 0.8.10>0.8.4, so I should be ok)
    3-after shut down the console will normally recharge. Alternatively, instead, I could leave it in sleep mode and will recharge as well(I assume)
    4-the battery will charge slower and might read wrongly[not sure if I misunderstood the later ]
    5-everytime I shutdown, instead of sleep I will need to press power(which will rcm) and re inject a payload.

    With that in mind:

    A-in which scenario(s ) would I need a jig again?
    B-If I use sleep all the time, I will not stumble with rcm thus will avoid most rcm inconveniences until next shutdown/reboot?
    C-If electricity goes off in the house, basically I should run the "Drained switch battery" scenarios?
    D-As long as autoRCM is active, is there a scenario I should be careful with to avoid burning fuses?

    A big thank you to everybody who helps all of us n00bs. Your help is very appreciated.

    Running SX 2.7.1 and OFW 8.0.1

    I have a question about how to update retroarch to latest nightlies:

    The retroarch nightly download unzips to two folders (/retroarch and /switch) and a .jpg file.

    The /switch folder contains a file retroarch_switch.nro, while I have saved to the ROOT of my SDCard.

    The /retroarch folder I also have saved to the root of the SD Card.

    The .jpg file I discarded.

    I have read to periodically update my cores to the latest iteration for best performance.

    If I want to update to the latest nightly build, Do I just overwrite the /retroarch folder on my SD Card with the new /retroarch folder that I download from the nightlies page? Or, would it better to delete the /retroarch folder and the .nro file from the SD Card, and then copy the newly downloaded /retroarch folder to the card?
    -If so, would that affect my saves?
    -Does that automatically update all the cores as well?

    Lastly, how do I back up my gave saves (both save states and in-game saves?) I cannot find where on the /retroarch folder all my saves are located.

    1. You will only ever need a jig again if you update your system while not running CFW because this will uninstall AutoRCM. This includes system firmware updates as well as the exFAT update. The system firmware updates can be triggered both online and from a cartridge. Software updates will not cause your system to reboot therefore will not cause remove AutoRCM unlike the aforementioned
    2. Pretty much
    3. Or you can just turn off the console to prevent any battery from being used
    4. See #1

    Question - if I have Atmosphere on my Switch, and AutoRCM on, and I'm currently in the OS (atmosphere booted), will it shutdown completely if I select "Power Off" from the switch menu.
    Because I had my Switch plugged into my PC (where tegra was turned on). When I selected Power Off, it turned off seemingly, but Tegra did not detect it as RCM O.K. (only when I unplugged it and plugged it back in).
    So my question is when I shut it down from the Atmosphere menu is it actually shutting down?

    Thanks! So if I'm understanding right, if I have my Switch plugged into the PC and turn it off, it'll turn off. But if I unplug and plug it back in it'll turn on because AutoRCM always turns on when plugged back into a charging device? If this is true, then its technically still charging when plugged in and shut off at the same time?
