    You can freely update but preserve your fuse if isn't burn already, if it burnt already past the amount of fuse for 4.1 firmware then that NAND backup isn't too useful, even if you restore that it will refuse to boot due to too many fuse burn.

    You can try to use Kosmos pack, and set up autoboot for SX OS for later use, but you can try to see from Hekate menu if you can get into OFW.

    For users having hbg (tinfoil) installed:

    If you look in you data management through console settings, does it mark the same memory space than looking it in hbg?
    I have 45.7gb in hbg (microsd) 27.5gb (internal memory) // 42.5gb (microsd) and 25.5gb (internal) in data management.

    Is this normal?

    It is impossible for you to boot OFW on 6.1. However you can boot Stock mode via Hekate as Hekate bypasses the fuse check.

    Make sure you put all of the Hekate files on your SD card except the .bin file.

    Looking for if there is a fix to this:
    -I updated atmosphere for 9.0, it's running
    -Hbmenu opens, but apps don't accept button presses/i cant control them
    I'm trying to use save dumper/injecter (YallAreNUTS) and it seems like an issue everyone was having, I was wondering if there's any solution for me at the moment? Sorry if I'm being redundant I just don't know where to look, thank you!

    Finally have everything running. Now I read I can install games as XCI (apparently safer) and NSP format. For NSP I know I can use tinfoil.
    1) I only plan to play offline on emu mmc. Is there really a risk with NSP, as in more dangerous than XCI even if offline?
    2) What app do I use for installing in XCI? thanks
    3) Which format is more recommended, because of advantages over the other.

    I've seen this asked elsewhere, but the answers I've seen don't make sense, so I figure the noob area would be appropriate. :)

    Before I hacked my switch, I was a good boy and did a full backup. This was in Jan of 2018. The latest firmware was 4.x at that date, however I know I've updated the switch since then. The burnt fuses count shows 6, which I think means I had updated to 5.x.

    Since there's now an emuMMC option where we can toggle between CFW and OFW, what I'd like to do is restore my backup so I'm back to a pristine OFW state and then set up emuMMC, however I understand that if I restore my backup, it's going to put a 4.x version of the OFW that isn't going to like the 5.x fuse burn count.

    The trick I can't figure out is how to get the appropriate 5.x firmware version installed after restoring. The solutions I've read all bring up using ChoiDujourNX for this, however, I thought the switch had to be hacked to use that -- exactly what I'm trying to avoid. Is it possible to do this? Perhaps editing the backup to "inject" the 5.x firmware?

    Noob question time: I have emuNAND on 8.1.0. If I upgrade my onboard NAND to 9.0.0, what flow-on effects does this have? I believe it affects loading anything via the cart slot on the emuNAND, but anything else?

    If you update your SysNAND to 9.0.0, you can't use the cartridge slot on EmuNAND anymore. But that's also the only issue I see.

    You're telling me it's fast moving... I'll be able to update atmosphere and such, I use the ReiNX payload in Tegra so, do I still just update all the atmosphere folders or, something else as well?

    What's 90DNS and incognito? There are ways of going online now without being banned? There's so much I've missed ahaha!

    And, I did I see that there's a version of tinfoil that installs games straight to the console without having to manually download, put on the SD then install? I'm gonna need to have a good read. I want to do all this tonight ahaha


    Also :
    If you turned on Auto RCM then you have to use a payload pusher (tegra) to boot the console up. If you try turning it on without injecting a payload the switch will hang on black screen. You can turn it on from sleep mode, but if its fully off you'll need to use a payload injection to boot it up.

    ok, i managed to get emunand to work! and just on time for Links awakening! huzzah!

    I do have a question about how it works: i followed a guide telling me to partition my sd in two, (A) at least 30gb for the emunand and (B) the rest, in my case, around 80gb.
    Now.
    By how the guy talks in the video, i assumed that A was where the emunand was going to go and B was where my "jailbreak stuff" was going to go to. So basically, both partition would be utilized somehow. However, following his tutorial step by step, now i have B with emunand, games and homebew, and A is completely empty.
    Why's that? Did i do it wrong? Is A supposed to be for Vanilla Switch to use as its extra storage? Will it format the WHOLE sd (so A+B) when it'll ask me to format it for Switch use, or just A?

    At this point I have no interest of having extra storage for Vanilla Switch, I could just delete A and have 128gb at my howebrew disposal lol
    But i'm so peeved I don't understand the point of the tutorial I followed!! ahaha

    Thank you, I hope I was clear enough!

    No, you need two partitions, one for emuMMC and one for regular homebrew stuff. It would be helpful if you could link the video.

    ReiNX payload and ReiNX CFW doesn't support 9.0.0 officially. Maybe in their nightlies from their Discord channel. But I'm not in that so I can't give you the answer. Officially (their website) ReiNX supports up to 8.1.0 https://reinx.guide/.

    90DNS is a proxy that attempts to block all communication with Nintendo servers. Incognito is a homebrew app by blawar that wipes your unique console info from cal0 (prodinfo). The theory behind that is, if Nintendo can't get your unique console info, they can't ban you.

    Neither are for going online with CFW and playing on Nintendo servers. They are both for blocking Nintendo servers. This is for blocking updates, and an attempt to not get your console banned by Nintendo. It does NOT allow playing on Nintendo servers or using Nintendo services while using CFW. It's meant to allow CFW users to use the internet for other reasons (homebrew app store, ftp, etc).

    That's tinfoil.io. It'll also require you to use a modified version of atmosphere, along with Mercury. The original tinfoil did allow for network installation without having to first copy to the SD card though. Just saying.

    Nobody can fully answer "Did I do something wrong?". We weren't there and nobody knows which guide you used. It seems the de-facto guide right now is https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/user_guide/emummc/partitioning_sd/

    "Nobody can fully answer "Did I do something wrong?". We weren't there and nobody knows which guide you used. "

    lol right you are. The video is in in italian, that's why i didnt think of spamming the link, but it's this one

    I just find it odd that all the things seems to be installed in the B partition, the bigger one, while A is empty (then again, I havent checked it after installing games, maybe that's where they're located?)
    Thank you for the link to the written guide, I'll check it as soon as i can!!

    I mean, in all honesty, yes, you did something wrong. I only say wrong because you are correct: the emunand/emummc should be in the 30GB partition, which is why that was made that particular size. You probably just selected the wrong partition in Nyx.

    Weird is that the youtuber put all homebrew stuff on the EmuMMC partition. I guess the first partition should be used for EmuMMC and therefore you should put your hombrew stuff on the second partition.
