    hey guys. So a couple of questions:

    What is the point of having emummc right now?

    Is it a difficult process to set one up?

    Would I be able to move my current games/saves over to the emummc?

    The main point is to be able to play online with legitimately purchased games (if you have a clean NAND backup). It's not difficult to setup. You can move your games and saves to the emuNAND.

    People with patched Switch systems also use an emuNAND to play newer games without updating the sysNAND past 4.1.0.

    I'm sure this is a simple question that's been covered, but I'll ask anyway. Feel free to link me to posts if they already answer my question:

    Currently on 8.1.0 and using Switch only for Lakka homebrew, so 100% clean NAND. I want to use Horizon-based homebrew (like the Diablo port), so what's the best way to create an emuMMC setup and make sure it never goes online?

    From what I've read, I should remove all wifi connections on current clean internal NAND, then dump to partitioned microSD and just never configure wifi (or connect to internet via wifi dongle) on emuMMC.

    What are the other options? I know there's 90DNS but is there anything else like an Atmosphere plugin that stops Horizon trying to connect to the internet? I'm just nervous about 90DNS eventually not working or accidentally letting something through. Appreciate it!

    Installing Incognito to a dirty NAND makes it so it can't get the Switch banned.

    Incognito is an applet/plugin thing to install? Pardon my noobness again, new to the whole Horizon/Atmosphere scene. And where do I get it from (if that's okay to say here)?

    Edit: Nevermind, read this: https://gbatemp.net/threads/incognito.531924/
    Cheers :)

    Running SX 2.7.1

    Is there a homebrew that will let switch play video files? Use as a media player?

    I know with retroarch you can, which is nice, if you're wanting emulation as well.

    Soo, backed up my NAND aages ago and can't really remember what I'd used it for before that. Know I had to have booted SX at least once to actually back it up but was never online during the process. Is there any way to check if my NAND is "clean" as you guys say?
    And the Switch has been updated with Choidujournx a bunch of times but also here I can't remember what I did "in the early days". Any way to check if any fuses are burnt?

    Hey people, is there any homebrew that tweaking system settings? (example; Increases headphone volume, increases brightness and adds equalizer etc.)

    Another noob question: I have emuMMC setup and enabled, all appears to be fine on the Hekate menu screen (under emuMMC it says "enabled" with a tick next to it). I was having a look through the menus and under Payloads I opened fusee-primary.bin, which immediately showed an Atmosphere splash. Is that Atmosphere loading Horizon from the emuMMC/SD card, or is it loading from the internal Switch NAND?

    Panicking a bit here, don't want to have accidentally touched/dirtied my internal NAND.

    If by chance I have potentially done something with my internal NAND, how do I restore the still pristine emuMMC back to the internal storage?

    There is the homebrew application pPlay.

    There is no way to check if a NAND is "clean" or not. But you can check how many fuses your console has burnt by using Hekate.

    Fusee handles emuMMC slightly differently than Hekate in that it is managed by the emuMMC.ini file. If you do not have one, which I am assuming is the case, then Fusee booted CFW on your sysMMC. And there is no way to restore emuMMC to the sysMMC. You need to restore a clean NAND dump to revert the changes made to the sysMMC.

    When I restore my clean 3.0.2 nand, what is the best way to update to the latest version and preserve my fuses without risking a ban? When I update through the switch I understand the update will remove my AutoRCM then when the update is installed it will reboot and burn my fuses, correct? Do I need to quickly use my jig when it reboots after updating, or is there a simpler way?

    What I do is I boot into Hekate's Stock mode and download the system update online but I don't install it. Then I delete the Wi-Fi settings and reboot the console into CFW while making sure AutoRCM is enabled then install the system update. I have been doing this for months and have not been banned yet. The only safer way is riskier which you can try reading up on here.

    I've got some questions regarding emuMMC and burnt fuses. At first, I backed up a clean NAND before doing anything and then installed ReiNX. I had a 4.1.0 Switch and I followed a guide to update to 7.0 through ChoidojourNX to avoid burning fuse. My fuse count is sitting at 5. Everything was working fine. Now, I restored my Switch to my clean NAND and followed this guide https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/user_guide/getting_started/ to set up an emuMMC and I managed to boot into emunand with Atmosphere 0.9.2.

    I've got some questions.
    - Will I burn fuse if I update emunand firmware to 8.1.0? Assuming that I will be booting into Stock firmware at 4.1.0 and Emunand firmware at 8.1.0 back and forth.
    - If I disable autoRCM, will I be booting into Stock firmware every time without any issues? The guide stated that I will be stuck in boot crash if I disable autoRCM in restoring NAND process. (I assume that it still counts as I just downgraded from a higher firmware.)
    - I'm planning to install PegaScap so I can boot into emunand without having to inject payloads using USB cable. Is it safe to do so (as in not going to burn fuse or get stuck in boot crash with my current setup.)

    No, you cannot burn fuses with emuNAND, since it has to be launched with a bootloader like Hekate or fusee-gulee.

    Without AutoRCM, your Switch will coldboot into sysNAND when powered on, yes. If the sysNAND is so low that there's a fuse count mismatch, the Switch will refuse to boot unless you use a bootloader like Hekate or fusee-gulee. There is no reason for your sysNAND to be lower than its fuse count (5 fuses = 4.0.0-4.1.0). Anything lower than 4.0.0, and the Switch won't boot without Hekate/FG. Anything higher than 4.1.0, and you will burn fuses unless you use AutoRCM and a bootloader like Hekate/FG.

    It is safe.

    Crap crap crap. If atmosphere then made it to the home screen of Horizon, what possible traces could it have left?

    Also, is there a chance that an ini could've pointed fusee to the emuMMC by default? I was using the default files that came with Kosmos.

    If all you did was load Atmosphere and you did nothing else, there are probably no traces, and you probably won't be banned. That being said, if you're paranoid, you should restore a clean NAND backup to your sysNAND.

    Hi i updated atmosphere to 0.9.2 and the only games that load now are mario maker & tennis. The rest just say could not start software try again from the home screen. So i Updated fw to 8.1.0 but that still didn't work has anyone else had this problem.

    I just had a look at my file structure and found this on (SD)/emuMMC/emummc.ini:

    [emummc]
    enabled=1
    sector=0x3cad000
    path=emuMMC/RAW1
    id=0x0000
    nintendo_path=emuMMC/RAW1/Nintendo



    Am I in the clear then, or does that file need to be in another folder for Fusee to pick it up?

    Edit: For what it's worth, this folder looks to have been created at the same time I accidentally loaded the Fusee payload:
    (SD)\emuMMC\RAW1\Nintendo

    And I've looked, there's no (SD)\Nintendo folder, which would've been created if I booted into the sysNAND, yes?

    A couple questions about switch hacking
    1)How likely am i to get caught with home brew if I go online. I only want to use it to play emulators. No piracy, no backups, only emulation.
    2)What’s the best way to avoid a ban. 3)would they ban me even if I paid for the membership
