    Yeah I'm pretty sure it wasn't possible on the DS carts either. Not without physically modifying the cartridge that is which most people are likely not interested in doing.

    It is impossible to play the latest update of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate without updating to firmware 8.X. I highly recommend updating your firmware with the homebrew application, ChoiDujourNX.

    Not yet but you can follow this thread for updates.

    Since the latest version of ReiNX has some issues with firmware versions below 7.0, update your firmware before updating your CFW.

    Alright. I read that atmosphere is a better choice now. Is that really the case? And can i switch the cfw from reinx to atmosphere w/o a problem?

    While you can switch CFW, there is not much difference between the two except for emuMMC.

    I have 3 partitions on my SD card. I have setup emunand on one of the partitions. How do I setup a second emunand on the other partition? When I click 'create emummc', it says 'found applicable partition [Part 1] which is where the original emunand is. Does it automatically pick the next available partition? I don't see a way to select which partition I want it to install to.
    Extra question: There are some screenshots that don't show up in my emunand but are in my sysnand. Can I just copy the images from the Nintendo/Album folder to the emunand Nintendo/Album folder? Only caveat to that is that the images are buried in multiple sub-folders. Can I just copy the images to the 'Album' root or do I need to copy all the sub-folders too?

    I'm in original FW 4.1.0 never connected to internet. i backup my system and set it for kosmos NX v13.2.
    Have some questions and need help.
    1. Can I sent payload and automatically start the CFW?
    2a. When I launch CFW to emummc (through hekate ctcaer mod v5.0.1 & Nyx v0.8.1) it displays that my current system version is 4.1.0 |AMS 0.9.3|S. It shouldn't displays current system version 8.1.0?
    2b. Will I face any problem with that system version in playing the new games?
    3. For some reason I can't boot hekate ctcaer v5.0.1 + nyx with the sd card inside my console. It launches only hekate ctcaer mod v5.0.1. Any help with that?
    4. should i need anything else except gold leaf for using my switch in its full potential?

    Thanks in advance.

    Did a quick setup on my second switch, it says 8.1.0 | AMS 0.9.3 | E
    Is my emuNAND set up the right way?
    Should I need to do anything else except configuring 90DNS?

    Hello. I recently picked up a switch and first thing I did was install cfw. Everything is going well on it and I couldn't be happier I just have a couple of stupid questions that I was hoping you guys could answer.

    I primarily use my phone to start the CFW and it's kind of a hassle using a 6-inch otg cable and then a 3 foot USB c cable and was wondering if you can use a generic USB c to USB c to send the payload or not.

    Also currently using a 64GB SD card space is going away swiftly on this thing if I were to update to a bigger SD card is it as simple as it was with the 3DS where it was copy paste everything to the new card.

    Not sure if it matters with my questions but it's a launch switch running 8.1.0, latest versions of hekate and atmosphere

    for the part if you can use a usb c to usb c to send payload instead of dongles, otg and such, yes you definitely can, i have seen it

    Just a quick question so I don't meander around the site. If I buy a used Switch that had a patchable serial number, does it being on a certain firmware block me from cfw-ing it? Thanks in advance.

    From my research when I did mine last week all firmwares on patchable consoles were able to have CFW. I ended up doing a stock update from 4 something to 8.1.0. before doing mine

    If you don't have an emuMMC partition you can just copy the files to the new sd card.
