I did all the steps in the NH Switch guide to set up emuMMC but every time I actually try and boot into emuMMC it just brings me back to hekate again. Does anyone know why this is happening?

I have CFW setup using Caffeine with emunand but it takes a lot of tries and I need a Internet connection, so I got a jig and am going to try to launch Hekate through RCM instead. Do I need to change any files on my SD card to jump from Caffeine to fusee-gelee? I should be able to boot RCM and use the hekate payload from PC or android without changing anything else, right?

First of all: Is your switch even vulnerable to fusee gelee? If it is, you can inject Hekate with pc and boot to atmosphere like before.

Lockpick RCM will do the job. Use NSC Builder to convert NSP to XCI and fill the key template with your keys.

Maybe you need to format it. You have important files on it?

  1. You only need exFAT if you are using the file based method which is not recommended to use in the first place as file based is incredibly slow. FAT32 is fine for emuMMC. And what is broken is the Stock mode of emuMMC

Thanks for explaining. So at this moment I simply turn the Wifi on, update firmware legally, burn fuses, load Hekate 5.0.0 to set up EmuMMC, what will be the correct option for Fat32 there?

Installed cfw. All is fine, but have some minor annoynace. How I can change clock time in hekate, screenshot of that i mean is on imgur /NNSPEXa (can not post links yet) because my clock time is very off from time in real word or in switch inself ? Maybe I need to modify some files or what ? It is like 8 hour difference

Hi guys! I just updated to 8.1.0 using ChoixDuJour but it shows an error when booting the cfw.

Error code: 2162-0002 (0x4a2)
Firmware: 8.1.0 (Atmosphère 0.9.3-master-25218795)

I do not understand the question you are asking me.
Sorry, it's the same one. What should be the next step when you've backed up everything on 4.1.0 hackable Switch, if you want EmuMMC+SysNand? Update via Nintendo and load previous Hekate? What's the option for "non-file-based method" you mention? Thanks!

There should be a title ID associated with that error. Delete it from your SD card to resolve the error code.

Restore your clean NAND backup and play online in sysNAND. In order to do so, you will have to update the firmware of your SysNAND. If you wish to burn fuses, locking you out of exploits on lower firmware versions thus having you rely on the Fusee Gelee exploit to boot CFW for a very long time if not forever, then you can update it normally through Nintendo. However if you wish to play online without burning fuses, you have 3 options:
  1. Using the homebrew application ChoiDujourNX. This requires CFW & homebrew making it the riskiest method in terms of a ban when updating without burning fuses but it is the easiest and fastest
  2. Updating online with AutoRCM enabled. Normally AutoRCM is removed during system updates. However non-SX CFW (e.g. Atmosphere/ReiNX) prevent this from happening allowing users to update normally without worrying about fuses. This method requires only CFW making it safer than using ChoiDujourNX but still has a risk. This is the method that I personally use. In order to minimize risk, you can download the update in Stock mode or OFW, remove Wi-Fi settings after it finishes downloading, then reboot into either Atmosphere or ReiNX (SX OS does not have this feature and may never attain it) and install the system update. To trigger the update, simply try launching any title
  3. Manually rebooting into RCM after installing a system update. Since AutoRCM is removed after a system update and AutoRCM helps prevent fuses from being burnt, there is a way to save fuses without CFW and with AutoRCM alone. This method involves using your jig or something equivalent to enter RCM when the console reboots after installing a firmware update. This is by far the riskiest method out of all three in terms of burning your fuses because if your jig or equivalent fails to boot you into RCM, you will burn fuses. However it is also the safest method in terms of a ban. If you wish to follow a step-by-step guide, you can follow this thread
As for non-file-based method, you will have to partition the SD card yourself.

Is there any way to format/factory reset and completly unlink a NNID without connecting to internet?
I think you can unlink the NNID from the nintendo website

What is the current state of Android on the Switch? Are there still many bugs?

So I ended up buying the used Switch with Atmosphere already installed and I have a few questions:

The guy who sold it told me that if the battery runs out, i’d only be able to turn the console on by plugging it to a PC and launching a program called Tegra. Anywhere I can read on it? I suppose this means the console already has Auto-RCM.

I’m also a bit confused about the process of installing games. He showed me I should use Goldleaf and connect the Switch to a PC directly. I think the game format should be NSP right? Anywhere I can read on how to install games? I also heard Fire Emblem has some issues when trying to install it? Is it Atmosphere just not being compatible?

I’d also like to switch to a larger SD card as it came with a 64 GB and I have a 128 GB one. What type of reformating option should I use and is it just a copy paste after doing that? What’s the folder I should make a back up off and never ever lose?

I don’t think the console has emunand. I also kinda goofed up and forgot I had my regular switch online through Ethernet, so airplane mode didn’t block online access. And the console downloaded a Contra Collection update on its own since the seller before was showing me I should just cancel out of update prompts. How screwed am I?

Also, for some reason, I was playing Odyssey with the joy cons without the controller adaptor and the controls seemed to act out all strange. Jumps wouldn’t register at times and it felt off. Are joy cons not syncing up correctly an issue? For all I know I could’ve just been pressing the sync button on accident, but I don’t think I did.

I can answer a few of these, as I have had some experience with it already.

So I ended up buying the used Switch with Atmosphere already installed and I have a few questions:

1- The guy who sold it told me that if the battery runs out, i’d only be able to turn the console on by plugging it to a PC and launching a program called Tegra. Anywhere I can read on it? I suppose this means the console already has Auto-RCM.

2- I’m also a bit confused about the process of installing games. He showed me I should use Goldleaf and connect the Switch to a PC directly. I think the game format should be NSP right? Anywhere I can read on how to install games? I also heard Fire Emblem has some issues when trying to install it? Is it Atmosphere just not being compatible?

3- Also, for some reason, I was playing Odyssey with the joy cons without the controller adaptor and the controls seemed to act out all strange. Jumps wouldn’t register at times and it felt off. Are joy cons not syncing up correctly an issue? For all I know I could’ve just been pressing the sync button on accident, but I don’t think I did.

1- Judging by your response(and the prevous owner's) there is a high chance that it is running AutoRCM already (you can make sure about it by using Hekate's payload and checking under "tools - AutoRCM" more details here https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/extras/autorcm/), so yeah, If the console runs out of battery or is turned off, you will have to send a Atmos' payload by either using TegraRCM on your PC or a dongle with the payload, I really recommend you getting a dongle as they are relatively cheap and will save you a ton of time and work. more info about how to do it here: https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/user_guide/emummc/sending_payload/

2- You can either install the games using goldleaf or tinfoil, the file format that goldleaf supports is .nsp, and the installing process is rather simple, get the game on your SD if the file is below 4GBs(Fat32 won't allow you to place files heavier than 4GBs on your SD unless you partion it, but it is a tedious job), and install it directly from goldleaf, or use the remote install option with Goldtree if it is heavier than 4GBs. more info on that here https://switch.homebrew.guide/usingcfw/installnsps/installnsps-goldtree

EDIT: about the compatibility isues, while installing some NSPs, goldleaf might tell you that you're missing sigpatches or that you firmware is too low, a partial fix has been posted by the user "Ryft", you can read more about that here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/8-1-0-a...missing-sigpatches.547295/page-2#post-8780696

3- It might simply be the case of a faulty joycon, I have experienced it as well and only getting a new pair of joycons fixed it, though someone who knows another fix may be able to help you
