    as far as i know one payload.bin is for the device you use on your switch in rcm mode so for you it should be your r4

    Hi guys.

    Everytime I come back to the switch hacking scene so much has changed. I've been content for quite some time with my setup and haven't needed to update for any reason, so I can't remember exactly which version of ReiNX or Atmosphere I'm even using right now... Is there any way to find out?

    I want to update everything on my switch, so that it's running on the latest CFW and the latest ReiNX/ Atmosphere and I'm able to get full functionality out of it including installation of more recent games (if I even need newer FW for that). I've read something about Signature Patches somewhere too, guessing an update added more checks that a sig patch will prevent? I'm thinking that THESE are the patches, and they just go in the atmosphere (exefs_patches)/ ReiNX (Patches) folders respectively?

    I really just need a guide or something that I can check out that can help me get up to date with everything I need. A little direction and help with this would be great!

    Thanks a lot :D

    Is it worth updating the ofw and cfw? I installed atmosphere cfw (not Kosmos, Reinx, or sxos) back in June this year and haven't updated anything since. Ofw is at 8.1.0 and cfw is at 0.9.1.

    You can always update CFW files, Kosmos is just a file pack with Atmosphere as it CFW, stay at 8.1.0 for now if you don't want headache on 9.0.0 firmware.

    Hey so i just update my switch from 5.1.0 to 8.1.0 (sxos) and now almost all of my games are asking me for a system update. What should i do ? Also i cant seem to turn on the console without booting it with sxos. Thank you.

    Set up 90DNS or Blawar's Incognito if you don't want the update nag.

    It is a fast moving console my friend since we are already up to 9.0.0 firmware. I recommend Atmosphere as it get the most feature and quickest update for CFW support, Signature patches allows you to run unsigned games and homebrew, the directory in sig patch pack tell you where to put them.

    just curios, is emunand just for sxos? wanting to keep my 4.1 OFW sysnans and run a 8.1 emunand.
    (i believe thats the right terminology) my switch om sxos is dead and im to cheap at the moment to spend another 30, only has the sxos a few weeks lol.
    so my replacement is a clean 4.1 out of the box.
    for some reason something tells me i want to keep my fuses, as my dead one i got on 8.0 and didnt care cause i knew it was too late.
    what do you suggest, from what i read nintendo online you have to pay like psn+ or something

    It shows burnt fuses equal to 8.1. I thought that through ChoidujourNX that wouldn`t happen. Well too bad then. Is there any way I can into my OFW? I only have a clean backup from 6.1.

    You don't have to update as 90DNS is a dns configuration, you can run Incognito inside your homebrew menu.

    Believe there is no emunand for patched unit for SX OS user, you can use pegascape on 4.1 firmware and set up an emunand partition running on Atmosphere CFW.

    Try going into the maintenance menu and then reboot into CFW.

    guess what i meant to say is until i can afford another license im going to use atmosphere or reinx. was wondering if no sxos user can run a emunand and if so can you point me in the right direction? prettysure i want to keep the 4.1 OFW (i think lol)

    Only emunand available for patched unit right now is through Atmosphere. ReiNX and SX OS has no emunand for patched unit. You can follow this for emummc.

    If you can enter RCM mode and push a payload then you have unpatched unit, well you don't have to pay 30 bucks or so if you just want to play backup, Atmosphere can do that fine, only if you want to mount HDD, run XCI off a HDD then you go with SX OS, do a clean NAND backup before you run any CFW on it. Fuse and firmware doesn't matter if it is unpatched unit, only patched unit you have to stay at the firmware to use for your entry point.

    You can try using Kosmos pack, there is a stock option that allow you to boot into OFW inside Hekate.

    thanX. the only reason i went with TX is cause of the external feature, and the built in cheat codes. other than that it seems cfw is the way to go.
    so basically i can update to say 8.1 and if needed i could downgrade again the 4.1 nand correct?
