    Hi Drax, thanks for the reply
    Sorry, I guess I should have been more specific, I already know this. I meant problems downgrading from 8.1.0 specifically. You know, like new security features by Nintendo meant to counter downgrading, something like how the TSEC keys were changed for 6.2 and onward to ruin CFW, but this time for downgrading. But judging from your reply, I guess there won't be any problems in this matter?

    No, if you didn't burn fuses, you can downgrade from 8.0.0 to 6.0.0 without the need of injecting a custom payload every time. You're fine.

    Hi!

    I've just bought a Switch and I have trouble playing downloaded nsp games. I'm using atmosphere (I followed the NH Switch Guide) and I install nsp games with Goldleaf. The installation goes fine but when I try to play a game, the Switch displays "Vérification..." (French for "Checking") and then tries to connect to the Internet. It refuses to go on without a connection, which of course I don't want to provide. In case that matters, my firmware is 8.0.1.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Not nxmtp, nxmtp is a homebrew tool for transferring files via USB. Unfortunately you cannot transfer files larger than 4 GB with nxmtp but those types of files are usually games which can be transferred via other methods such as USB installation or splitting.

    Yes, you can just restore your NAND with only those but if the firmware version is much lower of your boot0/boot1 + eMMC SYS than your current firmware version, then you will need to initialize the system which means you will lose all installed content and save data. You can perform a system initialization in the Maintenance Menu which you enter by holding both volume + and - when turning on the console or using a payload that boots CFW/OFW. Be sure to backup your save data before performing the restore.

    So do I do the system restore or system initialization first.
    Thanks.

    Restore your NAND then perform a system initialization.

    Hello my friends.

    I have some experience with SXOS but I do have a couple questions for you experts.

    I've got a fresh 3.0.0 switch and plan on doing a Sys/Emunand setup so I can play multiplayer games online. It's my understanding that the 3.0.0 firmware has some advantages so I'm just wondering if I will be able to restore it with a NAND backup. I need to avoid burning fuses and Auto RCM will protect against that, is that correct?

    So process is boot into SX menu, backup nand, create emunand, enable RCM, boot into sysnand, update firmware an play online?

    Please correct me if I'm mistaken. Thank you to the folks who patiently help others.

    While your steps are fine, the way you are going about them need some work. For one thing, you should dump your NAND with Hekate instead of SX OS as Hekate can verify your NAND dump unlike SX OS. With SX OS, you risk ending up with a corrupted NAND dump. Also enabling AutoRCM isn't sufficient to prevent fuses from being burnt. If you update your firmware online even with AutoRCM enabled, AutoRCM will be removed and thus your fuses are burnt. There are 3 main ways of updating without burning fuses:
    1. Using the homebrew application ChoiDujourNX
    2. Rebooting into RCM when the system restarts after installing the update which is explained here
    3. Updating while using a CFW that prevents AutoRCM from being removed which is any CFW except SX OS which also happen to be free (e.g. ReiNX, Atmosphere)

    Hello friend,

    thank you for the swift reply. I will indeed use Hekate to backup my NAND as you suggest, thank you.

    I have used ChoiDujourNX to update my other switch, I was reluctant to use this method as I assumed running homebrew on a sysnand would result in a ban. Or is there a way to update the sysnand from the emunand using this software?

    Thanks again.

    EmuNAND and SysNAND are completely separate entities. I also mentioned more than just ChoiDujourNX for updating without burning fuses.

    Hello,
    I have bricked my switch some time ago and cannot find any way to fix. I accidentally updated and afterwards restored my nand. It no longer boots to any mode. Any thoughts?
