    You have several options:
    1. Split your NSP files
    2. Install NSP files that are on your computer (or USB HDD with SX OS) over USB or FTP
    3. (not recommended, since FAT32 is more stable) Install exFAT support using ChoiDujourNX, which doesn't require you to update your system version

    So there is no other way to just play xsi files without installing them other than sx os?
    Is there any way to transfer files to the switch without pulling the sd out? like ftp or something similar?

    If you want to play game backups without SX OS, you must install them. You can install NSP files or XCI files, but it has to be installed.

    There is no real advantage of using XCI files with SX OS.

    Yes, you can use FTP with the Switch to transfer files to and from the SD card.

    You can use nxmtp to transfer files via USB.

    Is there a list of all things someone shouldent do? Or are the ones you listed basically the only real concerns?

    1. You never want to update your sysNAND.
    2. You never want to connect your sysNAND to the internet without PegaScape DNS.
    3. You never want to make any modifications to your sysNAND.
    That's about it. Aside from loading PegaScape, everything you do should be with your emuNAND(s).

    I still highly recommend unpatched systems, but a patched system on 4.1.0 is fine if that's your only reasonable option.

    Thank you Lacius. I followed all of your advice and now accessing EmuMMC is much simpler. However, after doing all you said Goldleaf was still giving me the same message. So i used tinfoil/ nut-exe to transfer the file and still nothing. However, nut-exe informed me that it could not properly communicate due to an error with the USB.
    Long story short, it was the USB cable. The moment i replaced it with my cellphone's USB-C cable everything worked even goldleaf.

    I bought the faulty USB-C cable from Amazon a few years ago. I didn't know that not all USB-C cables were created equal.

    Thank you for taking the time to give me a hand!

    (I'm using PegaScape/Atmosphere on an ipatched 4.1.0 Switch)

    And here I am talking about my emuMMC saga again :/
    Yesterday I was trying to create two emuNANDs, one to be clean (online play) and one to be dirty (homebrew)
    I could create two raw images on two different partitions, but emuMMC simply didn't create config for RAW 2.

    So I solved this by using another SD Card to store the clean emuNAND (probably there's a better workaround that someone knows about)
    Then I initialized this NAND to remove Fake News (I don't know if this is the best method), but I was wondering if there's any problem if I boot the clean emuNAND in CFW mode (on Hekate). Ninty only verifies the Nintendo folder or they can detect that Atmosphere is running? (I don't think they can, but I prefer to ask rather than getting banned)

    It is unlikely that you will be banned for merely running Atmosphere on your clean emuNAND. However, you should avoid homebrew when you're using your clean emuNAND.

    I've updated the clean emuNAND and everything worked flawlessly, but an message popped up asking if the SD card should be formatted and I clicked on Delete (I thought that it wouldn't delete hekate and everything, and I was right)
    Is there any trace on my SD card that it didn't format?

    So were I can find a step by step guide to do backup, hack a Switch and install Atmosphere?

    My Switch is on firmware 5.1.0 and yes I looked at the serial number, is hackable.

    If you don't care about online play with legitimately purchased games, then I recommend this guide:
    https://switch.homebrew.guide/gettingstarted/beforestarting

    If you plan on using online play with legitimately purchased games, I recommend this guide and setting up an emuNAND:
    https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/user_guide/getting_started/

    I'm not sure what you're asking.

    If I want Online play with legitimately purchased games I will get another Switch. Thank you, it definitely looks Switch hacking is much harder.

    It's really not hard. It looks more daunting than it is.

    Also, if you use your hacks with an emuNAND and you keep your sysNAND clean, there's no reason to buy a second Switch for online play.

    hello.

    is this correct?

    i am looking at this website, and am looking to install EmuMMC Atmosphere. from what i can tell this will guide me to install EmuMMC, and not even touch SysNAND. correct? do i need to back-up SysNAND? i don't see any instructions to do so, but do see some to restore under Extra. i have an unpatched Switch on firmware 3.0.0. if installing EmuMMC Atmosphere doesn't touch SysNAND, would just be okay for me to go ahead and update to the latest firmware and install EmuMMC Atmosphere later?


    EDIT :

    okay! i just got done reading through here > https://gbatemp.net/threads/what-is...-unpatched-switch-with-firmware-4-1-0.545406/

    from the sounds of it... what i want to do is create an EmuMMC for Atmosphere from my current 3.0.0 and just set that to the side. then we can update our SysNAND to the latest Switch firmware through official way burning the fuse, and create another EmuMMC for using the latest version. this way, if for whatever reason i wanted to, i can always just use EmuMMC if wanting to use an older firmware version. this will also leave my SysNAND completely untouched allowing for 100% legit play.

    does this sound correct? anyone?

    I have a nand backup which I took when I had exfat SD. Not I've moved to fat32. How do I restore my nand?

    I want to restore my 4.0.0 clean nand and then create emummc from there.

    do you let your switch in rcm mode in dock, when you go to work or do you let in sleep mode ?

    hey people

    i have an early nintendo switch that is fully exploitable.
    i am on firmware 6.1.0
    i have not done anything with it, other than play a few official games and gone on the nintendo shop so have an online account associated.
    i plan to use latest atmosphere for offline games
    i plan to use it in future to do online games, clean nand

    question i have....
    do i take a nand backup of my sysnand whilst it is on 6.1.0, or no point?
    should i just update my sysnand to latest official and then take a nandbackup and mod that.
    thus i can play all games and have a clean nand for offline?

    thanks
