    Well, I'm embarrassed. Apparently, Kosmosv12 was not the most recent one. I downloaded 13.0.2 and it works. Sigh. Lesson learned I guess.

    Thanks for your patience Draxzelex. I'm sure it's loads of fun dealing with idiots all day.

    Hi there! I have some questions regarding CFW with a new game.

    So I have a Switch on 5.0.2 running CFW that never goes online. I installed the CFW using the switch.homebrew.guide site tutorial. I've made a nand and boot backup before running any kind of homebrew.

    Ok my question is this: I've bought a cartridge with Stardew Valley, and when I try to play it, the game tells me I need to upgrade the system. What should I do so I can play this game? I've read 2 different ways of solving this: either upgrade using ChoiDujourNX to have newer firmware without burning the fuses or install the XCI taken the cartridge using GoldLeaf.

    What do you guys and gals think is the best way to do this?

    If I go the ChoiDujourNX way, how can I know what version FW my Switch needs to run the game?

    If I GoldLeaf it, where can I learn more about it? I hadn't heard about this method until right now.

    Also, If i ever want to go back to the light side of the force, should I just restore those backups to the Switch? If I played my other games on the console while on CFW, will there be any sort of trace on the system?

    And the last question: Is there a place where I can read more about writting homebrew for the Switch?

    Thanks!

    Just use ChoidujourNX and update to the latest available firmware, don't update via Nintendo server or you gonna burn your fuse, goldleaf is a title installer, if you ever want to go back to 5.0.2 you can restore your original nand as long the fuse match with the nand backup you made, assuming you have the boot0/1 and the rawnand, for homebrew app you need to learn how to code, if you don't know how to code don't bother.

    Oh OK! I'll read up on ChoiDujourNX then.

    I know how to code. I'm looking for a tutorial or manual to setup the tool chains and reference for the libraries.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hello guys! I have a quick question, can someone plz help? I have a 1.0.0 OFW Switch no fuses burnt, updated to NX-6.1.0 through ChoiDujour. I use SXOS. I accidentally burned my cartridge fuse, I don't even remeber how, but I'm sure of it since the cartridge slot is working in 6.1.0.
    Now I want to restore my SysNAND to my clean 1.0.0 backup and update it from there so I can play legit games online on my Sysnand and create an EmuNAND to do hackery stuff. How should I proceed? Do I HAVE TO burn fuses in order to play online with the last firmware or is there any other way?

    I want to buy mario maker 2 and play it online. I however am on firmware 3.0.1. I don't think I can go online without accepting ALL of nintendos silly updates it wants to force on me.

    What can I do? I can't go online with CFW, I can't go online with my legit firmware... is what I do.... update to the current firmware without burning my fuses? then just go online and use my switch normally? then if I want to enable homebrew stuff later ... downgrade back to a NAND backup of my legit firmware?

    Won't updating my firmware via invalid means risk a ban anyways? or is that not a possible way to get banned? I guess I'm just worried even if I make a nand backup of my clean nand.... if I end up getting banned and then restore the backup, somehow the ban will stick to me?

    Hi,
    My switch is currently on 7.0.1 with 4 burnt fuses and has never been online. I have a clean 3.0.2 nand backup which I plan to restore to play Mario Maker online, and converting my current dirty nand to an emunand. Is it possible to update from my clean 3.0.2 nand in such a way that will preserve my fuses but wont flag me for a ban from Nintendo? Is it even worth preserving my fuses?

    Not possible if you want to preserve your fuse and without getting ban from online gameplay.

    I see, thanks. Is the only reason to maintain a low fuse count the possibility of an untethered coldboot hack in the future? Would I by jeopardizing that if I burnt my fuses updating?

    There is no ETA for Permanent CFW, the closest thing to coldboot cfw is using a modchip with autoboot, it is really up to you. You can always preserve your fuse with autoRCM but you can't play online.

    It is possible to update a clean sysNAND to 8.1.0 to play online while also installing AutoRCM and preserving fuses.

    My understanding was having AutoRCM on was easily detectable by Nintendo and could lead to a ban, is that not right?

    Hmm, so if I keep AutoRCM on, restore my 3.0.2 nand then connect online and update to 8.1 the normal way through the console, I should maintain my fuse count and not be at any increased risk of ban than I would be if I let the fuses burn?

    Well if he update via ChoidujourNX it make his NAND dirty, good chance he would get ban, if he update via Nintendo server it burn his fuse and turn autoRCM off.

    By running Atmosphere one time, you can update through the system settings without overwriting AutoRCM. This is unlikely to make the NAND dirty.

    Alternatively, one could boot into RCM immediately after the update with a reliable jig and reinstall AutoRCM, and that would preserve fuses. I don't recommend this method though.

    Booting into Horizon OS while on CFW, it is considered dirty, that why people only state pre CFW nand backup is clean. The moment he go online and his logs doesn't match with the last time he been online he is going to get flagged for a possible ban.

    Yes, you can just restore your clean NAND backup to play Super Mario Maker 2 Online without any issues since you were using 90DNS to block all Nintendo traffic while using CFW/homebrew.

    And if your goal is to keep all CFW and homebrew on emuNAND, then you have no reason to boot CFW on SysNAND unless you want to update your SysNAND's firmware without burning fuses.

    You do not have to burn fuses to play on the latest firmware however updating without burning fuses usually requires some type of CFW or homebrew running. Updating without burning fuses also requires AutoRCM but no one has been banned for only using AutoRCM or having a fuse mismatch. Regardless of how you update your firmware, you should restore your clean NAND dump before proceeding forward.

    While updating without burning fuses usually requires some manner of CFW or homebrew, no one has been banned for having a mismatch of fuses or using AutoRCM (which is required for updating without burning fuses). There may have been people banned for using ChoiDujourNX to update their firmware but those bans could be due to those users updating to a firmware that was not available on a cartridge meaning they updated offline to a firmware not readily available.

    You are correct that one should not use CFW on a clean NAND, and we define a clean NAND backup as one made before the use of CFW. However, using it one time to update without doing anything else is unlikely to dirty the NAND. As for logs, they should not be a problem if he's restoring a clean NAND backup beforehand.
