    For some reason last night after powering off and adding some stuff to my sdcard, atmosphere would not load into emummc cfw. System nand worked fine so I bit the bullet and formatted the emummc partition and made a new one. I did not change anything on my main partion just emummc. Well after that I got it working I noticed that when I restarted my console it went into cfw on my sysnand. How screwed am I for online play now? I was on airplane mode, so no connecting to the internet, and after I rebooted sysnand was normal vs emummc

    If you just booted into the menu without using any homebrew, you should be relatively clean. But nobody can give you a decent answer, so if you are paranoid, you should restore a NAND backup.

    Well, i went into HBM via the Screen shots tab, but opening nothing else, tbh if i lose online play i wont be heart broken, but i do love tetris 99

    I went on last night after i get everything settled and online was still working as of this morning.

    But my question is, i lost a save file for fire emblem (20 hour reverted to 9h) is there a way to download and save emummc saves?

    You can use the homebrew application Checkpoint to extract your save files. These can be stored on your sd card or you can transer them to a safer place on your PC.

    super noob question, I've been out of the loop for a while. I want to buy a switch and I'd like to hack it,but last I checked only selected models were hackable. Is it still the case? the faq in the op has no mention of it

    Unpatched units are completely hackable. Patched units require you be on firmware 4.1 or less to hack. If it's above 4.1 and below 8 there may be a hack one day. The word is for patched units that are on firmware 8 will possibly never be hackable.

    What was the last thing you did before that to cause that? Have you tried holding power and + for 15 seconds, release, then hold power for 2 seconds then resend payload?

    Do you have all the needed files on your sd card?

    Hello guys. I'm trying to install Bloodstained Ritual of Night ns0 with goldleaf. And I'm getting error 0x234c02, it says "Invalid NCA, might mean missing sigpatches or too low firmware"

    I'm using atmosphere 8.1.0 with emuMMC, I have copied sigpatches from a thread on gbatemp and still getting this error.

    What am I missing?

    I don't really have the answer for why because it seems like it should be working if you have sigpatches. Only things I can think of.

    There was a corrupt version going around the web, might try a different version

    If that doesn't help, there are other programs to install from usb like AluminumFoil.

    Or you could try just installing it by putting the nsp on your sd card and just using Tinfoil, but it won't work unless your sd card is formatted to exfat because it's larger than 4gb.

    I have tried to install 1.6 update for both and get the same error. I am using fat32 so I have to install over usb. Is there any way to use tinfoil over usb?

    Hey there.
    So I use atmosphere on two micro sd cards.
    Both were exfat so I wanted to switch to FAT32. Now I've done so one one micro sd card.
    And the cfw boots, CFW runs, but games won't run, as they're corrupted (dev menu runs apparently).
    The Data Management section of the system settings says, that the installed titles take up only a little bit of space (up to 66Mb) or even none at all.

    In my opinion there shouldn't be any problems with the data integrity as everything else (Hekate, Atmosphere, Homebrew) runs as expected. The SD card is also legit (tested).
    Do you have any ideas what the problem might be?

    Yep I have them still installed. Even though I'm on a low Atmosphere version and Switch Firmware version. I wanted to update after that, but I will give it a try to update. I don't have high hopes though...

    Well you probably got corruption from using exFat, if so those games are goners.

    If games are corrupted it can only be Atmosphere patches (which you said you have them) or exFat corruption, which could have happened at any time so yes. There is no other fix for corrupted games but the Atmosphere patches. Just have to reinstall them. I mean you can attempt to update and reapply the patches I don't think it'll make a difference but again you could try it.

    It's why I tell people all the time not to use ExFat you can get your entire sd card corrupted at anytime.
