    Yes

    Yes or use ChoiDujourNX.

    The initial firmware does not matter as the exploit used is reliant on the hardware meaning you will always be able to hack it no matter what firmware is on it. The only exception is downgrading for using potentially better or more convenient exploits but if you're already set on not downgrading, you can simply irreversibly burn fuses and update to the latest firmware to check if you're banned as well as link your Nintendo Account.

    Is your SD card FAT32?

    There are no games that require firmware 9.0. You can play every base game on firmware 8.1

    Not all Switches produced after July 2018 are unhackable. Some of the "unhackable" ones are actually hackable assuming the firmware is low enough. Currently, there is support up to firmware 4.1 however there is room for firmware versions as high as 7.0.1. However any patched Switch past firmware 7.0.1 may never see CFW or if they do, would be several years down the line or at the end of the Switch's life.

    You might need to format your entire SD card as HBG may have modified more files than we realized.

    I believe some people have said its possible but the save states would be huge.

    Yes. From beginning I had sd formatted to fat32, then I formatted to exfat for large game files and it didn’t work, so I formatted back to fat32 and now this happened.

    and when I inject hekate_fspatches_v3.bin and start firmware (prevent update) there’s an error: unknown package1. I don’t know what to do at this point?

    Thank you for your answer Draxzelek : so i should upgrade to 8.1 firmware
    But for doing so I need choixdujournx, the last version of atmosphere, the last sigpatches and that's all?

    Thanks for your reply. I have one more question. Is there any way to downgrade firmware? I have console from 2018 so there should be something between 5-6 but I updated firmware to 9.0.1 so..

    Got a trinket setup with a 3v battery. Soldered a USB C to micro-usb cable, ONLY connecting the D- and D+ wires (leaving ground and power unconnected).

    Got trinket setup with dualboot and switchboot following:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/trinket-rebug-others-switchboot_uf2-fusee_uf2-modchip-software.526607/

    The Switch is successfully put into RCM.

    I power on the trinket m0, and connect the cable. Nothing happens.
    Should I also connect the ground cable?
    The USB C doesn't have a black wire, only red&green%white. Should I just connect the black cable from the micro-usb to the isolating cable of the usb C?

    You cannot downgrade an ipatched system if it's on 5.0.0 or higher, unless you have an old NAND backup and a hardmod.

    Nevermind, got it working!

    Need to press the "reset" button on the trinket to get it to inject payload though, for some odd reason. No biggie.

    Hi Guys (and girls) I have a bit of a problem i was hopping that you could help me whit.
    Ive hade for the last months or so ahde a hacked swithc whit atmosphera 8.1.0 on it and also Fireware 8.0 so everything was working fine utantill yeterday when i bought the physical copy of Ring fit adventure (well i hade to support Nintendo somehow) anyway, so i plugg in the game card and it says auppdate, and like a fool i perss continue.

    So now i tried to install hekate latest version on it and also start it agan from RCm mode, I can go in it whit TegraRCMGUI and start fromt here,

    but after i get start atmosphere i just get a black screen,

    so should i try to reset it to my nand backupp (will that make me lose all my saved games?) or is there another option?

    Whit best regards Intelligent Zombie

    You also need to update Atmosphere (or Kosmos, which uses Atmosphere) to the latest version.

    I have atmosphere 0.9.4 on my Switch 9.0.1. What have I to do when they release a new firmware update and it's safe to update? Just update normally the firmware and then hack again the switch? I'm still a noob in switch hacking.

    I have mortal kombat backed up on my switch with SXOS. When I goto my main site, it shows multiple updates that are all over 20 gigs each. do I need to install them all in order of just the most recent one. and does this go for all games with multiple updates?

    Correct.

    No, RCM payloads do not "taint" the NAND as they are loaded before the NAND boots.

    What is your error code?

    You can either update normally or use the homebrew application ChoiDujourNX to update your firmware.

    The latest update is sufficient for any game.

    • This error code indicates the connection has likely timed out during a download.
    • This error may be the result of a slow Internet connection, wireless interference, or a weak wireless signal from the router.
    This is not the reason, because I download games with Tinfoil with np. I have set DNS to manual and connection is working fine.

    when I try to enter eshop I get: Please sign to your Nintendo Account again and error 2155-8007

    Is your SD card FAT32 or is it exFAT?
