    Hi all:)

    Apologies for the following dumb questions,

    This is my first portable console and I would like to have cfw mostlyto run backups

    i just got a nintendo that it was offered to me, i can see that the serial is under the orange serial sign, which probably means that it is pacthed

    Additoanlly the switch is currently on firmware 7.0.1 and untill I have the release of cfw i do not want to update to firmware higher than this )as already advised if i get over 8.0.0 probably i will never be able to get cfw)

    If i am not mistaken this should hacked on a forseable future trough deja vu process righ ? ( I think that yesterday it was released the update for consoles patched up untill firmware 4.0.1)

    one last question and this is the one that led me to bother you all with this...

    While i wait for the new release in order to have cfw on software 7.0.1, can I buy marvel black order that comes out next month ? Would i need to update the switch in order to play such game ? ( or this would be required only if I wanted to update game version ?)

    Many thanks in advance
    Kind regards
    G

    Its not just recommended, its mandatory.

    You should at least test to see if it is indeed patched because if its not, none of the following will matter. You can use this tutorial to test it out. Anyways, its impossible to say what firmware version an unreleased game will require because its unreleased. Its highly unlikely for it to require a firmware version higher than 7.1 but you should wait until someone confirms the required firmware of the game after you confirm your Switch is patched. If its not patched, firmware is no longer an issue.

    I need some help with something. I'm new to Switch hacking. I've been studying how it's done for a couple months now and I know I have a Switch that's vulnerable to fusee gelee ( I bought it February of last year brand new, it was stocked with FW 4.1.0). I thought I would give it a shot and the first thing I wanted to do was make a nand backup, so I tried to push the latest Hekate payload using TegraRCMSmash. It didn't work and now I just get a black screen and it doesn't look like my Switch even turns on. How do I fix this? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Perform a manual shutdown (basically holding the Power button for 12 seconds).

    Don't use exFAT as it has a chance to corrupt your SD card and carries no benefits compared to FAT32 which does not corrupt your SD card. For FAT32, you can format it to 32KB.

    Is there a chance to save my ipatched switch? It was on fw 4.1 - And I've installed atmosphere and the hbl. But stupid me updated the console through ChoiDujourNX.
    Now its 8.1 - and atmosphere won't load anymore. Thought the cfw would stay, once it was "installed".
    Is there anything I could do? Still got the stuff I needed to dump thanks to the guide.

    I did a backup of my NAND a while ago when I think my console was on 3.0.2 and I want to know if it is possible to find out for sure which firmware the NAND backup is on without having to restore it?

    At that point, you should sell your console.

    Hey guys, thanks for having a place to ask these noob questions.
    Which switch should I buy? Are there any bundles on the shelf I should go grab? Does it even matter because there is some kind of mod I can buy that works for any Switch?
    I just want to go buy one and tinker, you know?

    Look for the serial number, RCMable one you need to get one that isn't patched, patched unit can't use the fusee gelee exploit. As for patched unit cfw support up to 4.1.0 firmware via pegascape.

    The SD card was brand new, but I may try it again by starting from scratch. The SDCard itself was a sealed SANDISK 400GB, bought directly from a Germany-based, reliable, well known electronics mail oder company.

    The games, where I am not able to dump the updates don't fail to dum it, it just does not offer it from the first place.

    Question time—I ran Atmos (pre-Emunand) and installed NSPs on my switch. I then restored my clean and backup, set up emunand and I haven't connected to the internet since. Is it relatively safe for me to connect to the net on OFW? I want to redownload some legit eShop purchases.

    is there a way to update my original smash bros game (and maybe buy and download dlc) to latest game version on my clean virgin ofw sysnand, without updating the whole sysnand beyond 4.0.1?

    From my situation if I want to install NSPs in the easiest way (or xci) you still suggest to use ReiNX? or atmosphere? and how hard is to brick the switch?

    just updated to 8.0.1 with ChoiDujorNX and im able to get the Hekate bin to boot but it ends up turning off my system after I see the Sept screen. Did I do something wrong?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    turns out I had to boot from fusee-primary.bin after i updated the atmosphere.. does this mean i cannot boot Hekate anymore?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    i also notice that NONE of my games will start now since i updated to 8.0.1.. they all say they are unable to start? What is causing this?

    Hi,

    Looking at getting a bigger micro SD. Is there certain makes that work/don’t work? Am I right that the biggest that will work is 128gb? Also, is it just the case of transferring all the files from the old sd to the new one?

    Thanks!

    Thank you, very useful information to know - I've learnt a lot already. Maybe I'll try to do this without burning fuses using your hekate method (although I don't really understand your explanation so might just opt for ChoiDujourNX since I won't play online anyway).
