    You have AutoRCM installed.

    You only need to worry about having a clean NAND backup if you want to setup a dirty emuNAND and play online with a clean sysNAND. If you don't have a clean NAND backup, it will probably be banned if you try to play online. There are ways you might be able to make it clean, but they might not work.

    There are only two ways to accomplish this:
    1. Install AutoRCM if you haven't already, boot into your clean sysNAND using Atmosphere and no additional patches (this should be relatively safe), update the system in the system settings, and reboot into OFW. You want to avoid using CFW with your clean sysNAND, but running it once to update the system without running any homebrew is unlikely to get you banned.
    2. Update your system in the system settings, reboot into RCM with a reliable jig, and install AutoRCM. This is a risky option, since booting into Horizon instead of RCM will irreparably burn your fuses. I don't recommend this option.
    If you don't care about downgrading, you don't need to worry about your fuses at all.

    You can do this, but you will have to overwrite your current emuNAND or make a second emuNAND. There might also be a homebrew application that will do something like this, but I can't remember what it's called.

    I have been trying to research emunand but haven't had much luck. First, is there a good tutorial that explains setting up emunand period? This is what I ultimately want. Sysnand to stay on 4.1, clean emunand (able to be upgraded to whatever the latest is), then emunand with cfw. Question: It doesn't look like Hekate can create an emunand from a backup, if that is the case then I would have to restore the backup I want to be an emunand and then create the new emunand?

    If the above is correct, then these would have to be my steps

    1. Create two additional 30+ gig partititions on my sdcard
    2. Restore my 4.1 backup to sysnand (currently on 6.2 but only 5 burnt fuses)
    3. Create emunand on first partition.
    4. Restore my 6.2 backup to sysnand
    5. Remove my AutoRCM in Hekate
    6. Create emunand on my second partition.
    7. Restore my 4.1 backup to sysnand.
    8. Add AutoRCM to prevent 4.1 sysnand from possibly updating

    Is that right?

    Additional question: My Atmosphere files are on the main partition of the sdcard currently, will I have to move these files to the 'cfw' partition along with any homebrew directories etc?

    If you're going to keep your sysNAND on 4.1.0, you don't need AutoRCM installed in order to preserve fuses.

    Out of curiosity, why do you want your sysNAND on 4.1.0?

    I just read somewhere that its good to be able to downgrade.
    But I think i will just start all over, update my system to 8.1 and do a new back up. Create a user w. nintendo account and start installing emuMMC again.

    One last question and I think im good to go
    When I split my SD card into 2 partitions,
    Which should i put the bootloader and atmosphere onto?
    The first partition I create is 330 GB
    The second partition I create is 30GB

    Downgrading isn't particularly important if you are content with using the RCM exploit forever to load CFW. Downgrading is only useful for alternative exploits.

    You want it in your normal storage, the 330 GB partition.

    That's the lowest I can be on I think. Just in case, any future developments happen. So the rest of my assumptions/steps were correct?

    1. If you want to keep AutoRCM for the convenience of being able to coldboot into RCM, there is no reason to keep your sysNAND on 4.1.0, since AutoRCM will keep your fuses from being burnt. In other words, if fuses are your only concern, then you would only keep your sysNAND on 4.1.0 if you didn't want to have AutoRCM installed.
    2. A warmboot browser exploit has already been released for 4.1.0. This is probably the best 4.1.0 is ever going to get, since certain factors make an untethered coldboot exploit highly unlikely on anything above 3.0.x. In other words, unless you want to use the warmboot browser exploit now instead of the RCM exploit, you will likely never get anything from 4.1.0.

    Thanks a lot for previous answers!
    I have to more question, Lacius you mentionned an update for cardslot : what does it mean? How do i know if it is up to date and avoid a mistake?
    Also more important: can some body give me a tuto to update the firmware of an emunand with atmosphère?

    The gamecard slot can be updated by a system update. By default, Atmosphere blocks updates to the gamecard slot if the system's fuses are low. It's not really anything worth worrying about unless game cartridges don't work. If a game cartridge doesn't work, you probably just need to allow the gamecard slot to be updated. There is no known benefit to keeping your gamecard slot on a low version, aside from keeping the gamecard slot functional when on a low system version.

    Use ChoiDujourNX to update the system version on your emuNAND. You can do this by launching ChoiDujourNX from the Homebrew Launcher with the 8.1.0 update files in a folder on the root of your SD card.

    Make sure your CFW is up to date before updating your emuNAND. When Nintendo releases new Switch updates, you should also wait for Atmosphere to be updated to support the new system version before updating.

    in my room?
    Hey there. I just got a "a software update is required" on a game that I used to be able to play. But now with this message I only have the option to download or cancel it and go back to the home menu.
    I'm using the latest version of atmosphere and never been online before.

    This is probably due to you updating your firmware. You can either downgrade your firware, install the update it requires, or try DevMenu's reset Required Version feature.

    I'm guessing you're not sure about my other questions then? Anybody else know?

    so i deleted the atmosphere folder off the sd card copyed a new on back on, copyed the sig patches, even added kosmos patches. i then used a different payload i used the fusee atmosphere bin. it loads right up and i dont get a chance to choose sysnand or emummc, anyway using this payload and not hikate i can install the nsp with goldleaf even tho it says no tickets avilable. if i go back to emummc hikate it says the nsp game is corupt. if i load the fusee bin and check the game it says no errors and plays it. wtf? is there a error in the payloads or the emummc?

    Hello all

    So just hacked my switch 8.1 - It have my emunand with 8.1 (AMS 0.9.2) but when i switch to my sysnand it says the firmware is 8.1 (AMS 0.9.2) - does this mean that there is CFW on my sysnand?

    Hi everybody

    I've installed 8.1.0 on emuNAND and when I boot to it the console asks for a controller update. I've searched about it and it appears the be ok, this update. But I was wondering: if I update the controllers and go back to my sysNAND, which is 5.0.2, will the games play ok or will I have to do an update on them? Since I want to keep my sysNAND clean and stock, that would be bad.

    The thread I read that made me think about this necessity of the game updating after the controller is this one here: threads/controller-update.518949/

    There is always a chance I understood it wrong since english is not my first language :/

    Thanks!

    Hello all. I moved all my old sd card contents to a new one yesterday and the Swtich didn't/couldn't move past the "Sept by Atmosphere" screen. I did a "clean" install and the switch was able to boot successfully to the CFW. I've been able to install games but then I had an install error in Goldleaf and had to restart the Switch, at which point I had the previous error of being stuck at the Sept screen. I'm not too sure how to proceed at this point, any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes it does.

    The controller update is 100% safe, as long as it hasn't been physically modified.

    Hey all. With the most recent exploits, is it still necessary to find a low-firmware Switch if all I want to do is transfer a BOTW save from WiiU, and then once transferred play without CFW?
