    If you follow every step, it’s very unlikely. Also the first step should be to create a NAND backup and if your console brick you can restore it.

    Real Tinfoil is tinfoil.io, right?

    any other alternative beside 90dns and incognito? i had used 90dns but 'the' download speed is very slow...if possible i don't want to use incognito becuase it delete something from the switch, or i should set up a new dns, like google dns, etc? also, my homebrew menu kept launching when i start to play Overcooked 2 which require me to press both L, R to start the game, suddenly homebrew menu opened

    Was sitting 3 feet from the switch today with two others playing and my joycons kept losing connections. I checked and they were fully charged. First time I have had this happen. How far should they be able to go?

    Can you use the same online account on two different Switches? If so, are there any issues/drawbacks? In particular, if you want to delete the account from one of the Switches to sell it.

    Have an issue here: my Switch's battery is being drained 1% every few seconds. Having it plugged to an official charger brings the battery up to 100% within a few minutes. Full reboot doesn't seem to be of help.

    How do I fix this? I have AutoRCM enabled, Komos AMS 0.9.2, Hekate v5.0.0.

    I doing an initial install on my switch. I ended up backing up the nand prior to doing anything else, then ran lockpick RCM as recommended to back up the keys. However, I did both of these things prior to making an EmuMMC. Will that dirty my sysNAND at all?

    Tried leaving it charged for over an hour, but my Switch's battery will immediately start draining again once I unplug the charger.

    Was wondering how I would move everything over to a larger SD card? Would I just partition the new one and just copy everything over along with the emuNAND and boot up like normal? Again, thank you all for the help!

    I'd use goldleaf but it doesn't have network install so I have to use dz.

    Is there any way to transfer save files between sysMMC and emuMMC (I'm on atmosphere)?

    Well, I have tried several things from 90dns to pi-hole(with nintendo server list) and both. Seems like my switch doesnt even see that I have changed my dns. Went into pi-hole then ran 90dns tester to see the urls pop up in pi-hole but the switch didnt show up at all. I can go on my computer and see it show up in pi-hole just not the switch. So....I am not understanding what I need to do to block updates so I dont have to worry about getting the update nag or any system update for that matter since I can only get into cfw via fakenews. any suggestions?

    No, your sysMMC should be clean.

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/moving-emummc-hidden-partition-to-a-larger-sd-card.545094/

    You can use Checkpoint to extract the save files to your sd card, but using Checkpoint will make your sysMMC dirty if you want to keep it clean.

    Yes, Only RMC stuff boots. After the ReiNX/atmosphere splashscreen the switch stay black.
    If you're able to help or guide me I would be very greatfull. I read about Mattys rep kit but It starts with FW6.1... I was on FW5.1. To build Boot0/1 for FW5.1 i need my Keys.txt... Is this a short name of the file (maybe I have those but with the full file name... not sure)?

    Thanks for such detailed explanation.

    I don't need the save files in sysNAND as I have backed up using CheckPoint. I'm thinking to revert my switch back to original state before setting up emuNAND.

    This is what I'm thinking of doing.

    1. Restore my 5.1.0 sysNAND backup.
    2. Factory reset it.
    3. Setup emuNAND and enable AutoRCM
    4. Update emuNAND using CDJNX
    5. Boot into sysNAND using Hekate and update horizon OS normally while connecting to the internet.
    6. Backup sysNAND 8.1.0 using Hekate. This will still consider clean copy correct? Since no CFW running.

    Please advise if steps above are correct and in correct sequence?

    Thanks

    Is it riskier to install NSP files on the internal space compared to installing it to the sd card

    I'm on sysnand and only use the the switch offline

    Once you are running CFW and starts installing NSP files, it doesn't matter where you install them. The risks are the same.

    if you want to go online again, you have to restore your NAND backup.
