    Stop using exfat, start using fat32.

    You can setup emunand and use cfw in emunand and play legit games online in ofw.

    No, cfw makes your MMC dirty and you will probably be banned.

    Only thing different you have to do on fat32 is install your games from usb to bypass the 4 gb limit, which I prefer to do anyway because then I don't have to take out my sd card, put the nsp on it, put it back send the payload etc... you can do it all using Goldleaf without rebooting.

    ofw = official firmware

    If you're using atmosphere https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-setup-atmosphere-emummc.541060/

    If you're using sx os there's emunand you can setup when you boot

    Emunand will keep your system clean while using custom firmware so you won't get banned on official firmware.

    Is the the correct steps to make backups of your saves using SX Installer?

    1) Boot SX Installer
    2) Select "installed" tab from left menu
    3) Highlight a game, and press L for "Backup Saves"
    4) Press L again to backup

    Doing this creates a new folder on the SDCard: sdmc:/switch/sx/saves

    5) Copy the contents of the /saves folder to your PC for backup with some folders inside
    6) In the event you need to reformat your SD, you would copy the /saves folder from PC back to sdmc:/switch/sx/saves; and then use SX Installer to restore the save by pressing "A" for "Restore" on the "Backup Saves" page.

    That all sound correct?

    with the switch manually set with 90dns(Primary 163.172.141.219 Secondary 45.248.48.62?)...some things still get through. Are there domains that I can blacklist on my router or homebrew to help at home? Mainly want to block all system updates +nags

    Try asking the sales associates at Target to let you look at the serial number. Unless they want to lose a sale, I cannot imagine why they would not at least let you check. Otherwise, you will have to look online such as eBay or the trading section on this site.

    Why not just use something more well known like Checkpoint or EdiZon?

    This seems to be an extensive list of domains you can block on your router.

    got a used switch with reinx 2.4 and hbg installed, planning to use atmos but i don't how to switch...when i bought it, the person already installed some game and i wonder:
    1. if the game and hbg will not be working if i change to atmos/kosmos?
    2. do i need to delete everything from my sd card to make a clean install of atmos?
    3. what about the savefile of my games?
    4. i have a folder named backup on the root of my sdcard, so i should restore the backup using hekate first or there no need to do that at all?

    1. the games will still be working, but you will need Atmosphere patches https://gbatemp.net/threads/i-heard-that-you-guys-need-some-sweet-patches-for-atmosphere.521164/
    2. No, just get Atmosphere files off github, extract and transfer them over to sd card. No need to delete anything
    3. They'll be fine
    4. No, that's a backup of your entire system in case of brick or if say you want to go online and you could install a clean nand. Don't install it but keep it. Even copy it to your computer or an extra hard drive you have laying around for safe keeping. You could even upload it to a site like Google Drive. Note if the day ever came that you did need to use that backup such as if you accidentally bricked your switch everything such as saves and if you have roms for emulators would revert back to when the backup was made. (i.e. any newer ones after the backup would be gone) So you might even consider making a new one.

    Although not specified, I assume the newer HBL will not work with 3.x.x of Tinfoil/Lithium still?
