    Yes you can use this tool to split the .NSP files

    You will have to make a new NAND backup after restoring your old one since your NAND will change in the time it takes to download the update and communicate with Nintendo's servers in such a way that restoring the old NAND backup more than once may flag you for a ban,

    1. No it is actually highly recommended to have a linked account before setting up CFW as certain games and applications require one
    2. Sure
    3. They are not linked on the Switch
    4. It will only boot into emuMMC if you send a payload. Otherwise, it will boot OFW/sysMMC
    5. If that is what you wish although not burning fuses is extremely easy to perform nowadays

    Whoops what I meant to say is that my switch is in CFW mode right now and when i restore it to get the 4.0.0 patch will I have to make a new nand backup to extract their models or can I use the dumper without getting banned? I'm using the latest Atmosphere and patches.

    You will have to restore a clean NAND backup to download the update without risking a ban. If you wish to use homebrew to dump the update and models as well as keep a clean NAND dump on hand, then you will need to dump your clean NAND before using the homebrew application to dump the data. There is a tool that can dump digital data without homebrew, but it requires a NAND dump so either way you will need to dump your NAND after downloading the update.

    How do you update sysnand without burning fuses?

    Do you recommend using autoRCM? (If i enable autoRCM do i need 2 connect my switch to the pc everytime i powered down the console?)

    Do i need to use 90dns on sysnand? (emunand wont be connected to the internet)

    Thanks for all the help.

    I also don't see why you need to keep 90DNS on sysMMC unless you plan on using Switch LAN play, FTP, or the Homebrew Appstore which you did not indicate when you can just remove all Wi-Fi settings.
    I do not recommend that guide at all as it uses pre-bundled files. Simply download Hekate and dump BOOT0/BOOT1 as well as your eMMC raw GPP to have a complete NAND dump.

    No which is another reason I do not recommend that guide. Use TegraRCMSmash instead.

    I've never used this tool so I am unfamiliar with it. Also Hekate was released long before it and is a much better all-around tool than NX NAND manager.

    Use the homebrew application ChoiDujourNX to update your firmware without burning fuses.

    I know there's no foolproof way to avoid ban but.. which is safer for online? AutoRCM disabled Switch with stock firmware or Emunand? ATM I am using emulators and hacks only on offline emunand and go to stock to play legit games only.

    Is it recommended to disable AutoRCM each time or is simply booting to sysnand for legit games enough?

    I've hacked my 3.0.1 console with athmosphere a while ago (only RCM, autoRM, athmosphere and all apps on SD) - now I'd like to upgrade to 8.1.0, do I need emunand? (I've understood it's for keeping the sysnand clean but is it too late with my hacking method for online play?) Planning to do it with ChoidujourNX.

    okay so this is going to probably be a dumb question.

    I hacked my switch using caffeine. I got hekate working. I made my backups. I got atmosphere working. Then I updated to 8.0.1. While I was using ChoiDujourNX to install 8.0.1 I was told I better enable autorcm. So I did. Now when my switch turns on I enter RCM mode. Does this mean now every time I turn my switch on I have to plug it into my computer to push the hekate payload file? If I hadn't've updated.... all I would've had to have done is re-use pega everytime I rebooted to launch hekate, which doesn't require a cord and only requires tapping the screen 2 or 3 times.

    Is this what everyone does? When I updated my firmware to 8.0.1 I chose "CFW (SYSNAND)" in hekate. Could I simply have chosen "CFW (EMUNAND)" in hekate and then not needed to enable autorcm? I'm still not exactly sure how emunand works on switch. The fact hekate gives me four choices: CFW SYSNAND or CFW EMUNAND or STOCK SYSNAND or STOCK EMUNAND is a bit confusing to me. I know cfw is custom firmware. I'm curious though, is it actually possible to update my firmware on emunand? then... actually would I leave autorcm ON, but.... turning my switch on wouldn't boot into emunand so it wouldn't notice autorcm was on? then I'd pegascape from my stocknand into hekate then i'd hekate into atmosphere emunand THEN it would see autorcm? although still entering rcm at that phase would still leave you stuck needing a cord wouldn't it? From what I've read before it sounded like emunand on switch wasn't fully functional yet, so, I'm super confused about these choices. I have my backups though, and autorcm is on now, so my fuses are safe.

    I'm fine with doing things either way.... but having to plug my switch in every time I turn it on sounds annoying. Compared with how easy pegascape is to use. So are people really plugging their switch in every time they turn it on for autorcm? or is there a way to restore my stock backup and update only emunand this time? and if there is a way to update only emunand, does that actually help avoid this needing a cord problem? Won't launching atmosphere from hekate still put me stuck in RCM? (which sounds silly for hekate to send me to rcm only to demand I push hekate back to the device...)

    Neither has resulted in any bans but more people use emuMMC than AutoRCM for avoiding a ban. Personally I use AutoRCM as it not only eliminates the need for a jig but doesn't take up 32 GB on my SD card.

    You do not need emuMMC to update your firmware to 8.1. You can update your console normally with ChoiDujourNX as it updates your firmware without burning fuses by enabling AutoRCM.

    Is your SD card formatted as exFAT?

    Well sleep mode exists so unless you need to reboot into a different mode, there is not much reason to turn off the console. And unless you want to boot into pure stock/OFW, there is reboot_to_payload which allows you to reboot the console into any payload while it is still on. Not to mention that Pegascape requires an Internet connection which is not as accessible as a dongle or other payload injector that can be used on the go. You can even use your phone to send payloads as long as you have a USB cable. So yes, most people with unpatched consoles send payloads via USB to boot CFW while Pegascape is mostly reserved for people who have patched units running firmware 4.1 or lower. But since you updated with the homebrew application ChoiDujourNX which prevented fuses from being burnt by enabling AutoRCM, you can downgrade your firmware back to what Pegascape supports.

    Oh yeah, duh, of course, usb is much easier than the internet. I always use my switch in airplane mode, so I totally forgot I had turned airplane mode off for pegascape. On my wiiu I don't use an internet connection at all though for my browserhax, I just host the website on my home computer and then use my home wifi. Which is great for a wiiu, but since you're right a switch can travel, making my own copy of the pegahack website for my own home wifi.... sounds bad.

    I wasn't aware sleep mode was so popular. I'm pretty sure that a full battery put to sleep mode for about a month dies, but that a full battery powered down loses about 1-2% power per year. I'm always afraid that if I put my switch to sleep, I'll forget it exists for 1-2months and then the battery will die. Which is really bad because leaving a lithium battery dead for an extended period of time permanently damages it. I might be biased though against sleep mode, maybe it is more battery efficient than I give it credit for.

    edit: Also thanks to everyone who has helped me! I couldn't've done it without you. Hopefully I won't be back asking anymore silly questions anytime soon :)

    edit2: Xoa's question and your reply to Xoa's question makes me realize I understand emuMMC/emunand on switch EVEN less well than I thought I did. He implies people are turning autorcm on and off? Does this mean you can use a sysnand alongside an emunand but that both them have to be on the same firmware? Then you only go online on sysnand? and you run emulators/cheats/etc on emunand? I've read elsewhere in other threads that autorcm slash having the wrong number of fuses is a great way to get banned. I guess nintendo has stepped up their game since the 3ds days, where it used to be possible to have your sysnand and emunand on different firmwares at the same time. (nintendo hadn't invented fuses yet I guess).

    But doesn't the use of emuMMC minimize the risk of getting online banned when on sysnand? Or is it too late for me since I've run Atmosphere? I have never been online so I could hypothetically flash my clean nand and go forward with emuMMC?
