    You can open it but you cannot just simply use a NAND from another console.

    yeah, but i mean PHYSICAL nand A That went into auto rcm, puting the physical nand A into unpatch unit then restoring a working software backup nand A ?

    Console is made up of more than just the NAND. You would have to replace the entire motherboard.

    AutoRCM is installed to BOOT0 which isn't a part of the NAND. The eMMC is broken up into 4 parts: BOOT0, BOOT1, eMMC raw GPP, and RPMB (unused).

    Hi everyone, anyone has a guide to make a keys.txt file working correctly with a switch that has a firmware 6.2+ (fuse 9)

    Because it's driving me nuts all the keys.txt files i find on the net are making choidujour give me errors, and i found a guide to make your own keys.txt using biskeydump, hactool and a script looks like it's not working since i'm using 6.2+

    Ttrying to unbrick this switch so i cannot use choidujournx and i don't have a working nand backup for it

    I am fully setup on emunand for past week but today i was installing an update file through usb on tinfoil for Ys VIII Lacrimosa of DANA [01007F200B0C0800][v262144] and if crashed then when i rebooted it keeps crashing it will show kosmos logo then sept logo then atomosphere black logo then when it switches to the official nintendo logo it crashes with error code
    2002-4373 (0x222a02)
    Title: 010000000000001F

    Dumb question.

    I know that Sysnand should be used for doing legit things, like playing online, and emuMMC for offline hackery. But I have 4 options. CFW (Sysnand), CFW (Emunand), Stock (Sysnand) and Stock (Emunand)

    Is there any reason why I would want to run CFW on the sysnand, isn't that just going to lead to a ban hammer? I'm assuming the 2 I would want to be mainly running are CFW (Emunand) for hackery and Stock (Sysnand) for online. Am I right?

    Is it best to remove games from the system memory before doing the NAND backup or it doesn't matter? It's a byte-per-byte dump? What happens if there's a legit game in system memory and the same game as backup in sd memory ? I guess I should "archive" the first one first.

    If you want to play online, you have two options:
    1. 1 dirty emuNAND for hackery, and 1 clean sysNAND for online play.
    2. 1 dirty sysNAND for hackery, and 1 clean(ish) emuNAND for online play.
    Option #1 is highly recommended.

    If a person is using a patched Switch on 4.1.0, then this doesn't apply; he or she will need two emuNANDs, since the 4.1.0 sysNAND can't be used for online play, and it can't be updated to play newer games.

    When it comes to actually making the backup, it doesn't matter. The backup is going to be the same size regardless, since it's a "byte-per-byte" dump. However, if your plan is to compress the backup to save storage space on your computer, you will want to remove your games from your NAND before making the backup.

    I think i found the source of the issue. when in TegraRCMSmash instead of saying "Smashed the stack with a 0x7000 byte SETUP" it says 0x0000 instead. so my switch is patched.

    What happens if there's a game on system memory and the same game on SD memory? Two icons?

    I have a question and I'm hoping some of you pro knowledgeable people can help me because I'm a bit lost.

    I hacked my switch last year. I use an atmosphere payload injector to turn it on and load my custom firmware, I use tinfoil to install NSPs (I know this program has been replaced) and everything works perfectly for all the games I've installed.

    Heres the issue. I'm on firmware 6.0.1 on my switch. New games such as Cadence of Hyrule require at least 7.0.1. How do I upgrade my firmware to say, 8.0.1 without messing everything up?

    As its been a year since I did all this I'm a bit fuzzy on how to do this. Is it as simple as putting the new atmosphere version on my SD card? I've seen a few answers like, "Oh just use ChoiDujour to update" but I'm frankly not sure what that is or how to do it and the thread on it is over a year old and sort of intimidating.

    If somebody could tell me the easiest way to do this I'd appreciate it.

    Just hacked my switch a few days, I want to use the hori d-pad joycon but in atmosphere the only button that's working is the screenshot button, every other button doesn't work including the dpad and stick. It's working when I don't go into CFW though so the joycon itself isn't broken. Any way to fix this?

    The save data for that game appears to be corrupted. You will either have to restore a NAND backup or perform a system initialization which will remove all installed content and save data. You can perform a system initialization by holding volume + and - when turning the console on. If you have AutoRCM enabled, hold the buttons after sending a payload that boots CFW/OFW.
    ChoiDujour does not support any firmware version higher than 6.1. Instead, use the homebrew application ChoiDujourNX to update your Switch firmware without burning fuses.

    Okay I used ChoiDujour to update to 8.1.0. Problem now is when I try to load CFW it says "Failed to load sept".

    I have the latest version of atmosphere and my sept folder is where it's supposed to be on the sd card root.

    Any idea whats going on here?

    You need to have the latest version of Atmosphere and sept folder on the root of your SD card.

    Cheers for the help. I had both. But I found this bit of info on another thread.

    "You have to select "payloads" and then "fusee-primary.bin"
    Hekate can't boot 8.1.0 so you have to launch that"

    I just updated to 8.1.0 and I wasn't aware of this. When I selected fusee-primary instead it worked.

    This stuff is confusing but I think I have a handle on it now.
