    Won't that get me banned?

    I have a NAND back up. If I restore back to that will I be safe to go online?

    Hello,

    I just tried to check if my switch is hackable.

    I went into RCM mode and injected the fusee_gelee.bin in RCM Tegra Gui.

    The switch turned on but showed me the following:

    "ERROR uSD: Failed to configure controller
    "ERROR usD Failed to initialize the SDMMC Driver!
    ERROR Fatal error: Failed to initialize the SD card

    Press POWER to reboot.

    I only had the switch in RCM when in injecting the payload. Do I need to have a micro sd card inserted? I didn`t find the fusee_test.bin, so I was injecting the fusee_atmosphere payload in RCM tegra gui.

    What shall I do now? I was following the switch homebrew guide on another website :P

    Can I insert my new and empty Micro sd Card or what shall I do?

    When I press power the switch only restarts and shows me the same error as written earlier.

    Thank you :)

    hi, I was able to follow the guide (nh-server.github) to install cfw, but whenever I try to launch Atmosphere FSS0 EmuMMC from Hekate, it gives Hekate's logo and goes back to Hekate. please help?

    Greetings.

    I have been trying to read and catch up on the scene since i've been gone for quite a while (since 3DS pokemon days). I have an unpatched switch that i am looking to make able to just edit my pokemon saves. What would be the easiest and safest way to do just that? I was reading that lineage is 100% ban proof? but does it provide a way to edit/copy my save to my sd so that i could edit it on my pc via pkhex?

    If your NAND backup is clean, meaning made before running CFW and homebrew, then you will be safe once you restore it.

    Try following this guide

    While Lineage OS is ban-proof, it would not help you prevent getting banned when using PKHex. This is because you cannot load your modified save file with Lineage OS let alone dump it. The safest way is by having another Switch gen the Pokemon for you to trade over to the game you want.

    Somewhere, out there...
    Hi guys. Here is where I am at:

    My hackable Switch is currently on FW 5.0.1. I only have a SysNAND and only hacking I have done is save edits. I am wanting to upgrade FW to 9.0.1 or whatever it is through Choi. My mSD was in exFat format, and I reformatted it to Fat32. Right now, am backing up Nintendo directory to mSD card, and it is taking about 2 hours. Is this somewhat easy to do? I am following the sdsetup site and guide.

    Update: I cancelled copying Nintendo directory to mSD card after Fat32 reformat, should I go back to exfat? If yes, what should I go with for Allocation size (32kb or 64kb)

    ANY help is GREATLY appreciated :)

    Is there a thread for Android on Switch and subsequently the possibility of Project X Cloud (Xbox)? I can’t find any information. Thanks!

    So instead I should get atmosphere with emuNAND and keep this unpatched switch offline while having a switch lite to actually do my online playing with while trading my genned mons from the other? If so, could you direct me to the most up to date guide on hacking my switch? I saw it when i first got on here again like a week ago and cannot find it >_<

    Also, thank you for your time and advice.

    The only guide I know of that sets you up with emuMMC is this one.

    so I was able to install several games, but when it comes to "fire emblem three houses", it stuck in the middle of installing using goldenleaf, and the PC itself freeze, had to force shutdown the PC? did anyone encountered this problem or the NSP is corrupted?

    Edit: I was able to install Fire Emblem after using Fusee glee primary payload instead of Atmosphere in Hekate. Don't know why.

    So if I want to clean my SysNAND (I plan to use EmuNAND for CFW eventually) without leaving traces of CFW on it (I already commited the error of installing a NSP file on my SysNAND oops), would restoring the eMMC BOOT0 & BOOT1 and eMMC RAW GPP backups that I did before doing any alterations to SysNAND (i.e. as soon as I loaded Hekate for the first time) suffice to clean it completely, "avoiding bans"?

    Is there any other precautions I should follow when doing this? Is there anything else I should restore to clean SysNAND?

    Provided you didn't go online while modded (and made the backup before backup running cfw) then the clean backup is sufficient.

    Just make sure they are in the appropriate folder.

    Also when you setup the emunand use incognito + 90dns before you run games on it (they share the same prodinfo and cert as your original band)

    Hey, so Pokemon has been out for a bit, and I want to use PKHeX. I'm gonna need to mod my Switch, but I don't know where I should begin. I bought a second Switch in January 2018 just for this purpose that is apparently hackable according to the information in the serial number thread. These are my Switch's details:

    I haven't been in the loop at all, so I want to make sure I know exactly what I'm doing.

    My brother's serial number starts with XKJ7 and I can't find if this indicates it can or cannot be hacked, which one is it?

    1. What are the differences between CIAngel, Darkumbra and Tinfoil other than that the former is for the 3DS?

    2. How long until the next Switch android update?

    3. How do you USB install stuff on a Switch without having to take out the Micro SD card?

    How can i check if a switch is patched when my serial number is way way longer than on ismyswitchpatched.com?
    This site has only 6 digits while my serial number has 11???

    Got a few questions I wanted answered before proceeding to mod my own switch I already know is hackable.

    1. I want to get a new one since I need online and im the one paying for the family plan. how well has nintendo been dishing out bans? I don't plan on using my hacked switch online once i get the new one with better battery life.

    2. I have seen many videos and updates of people getting some gamecube games (particularly super smash bros melee) to run fairly well on hacked nintendo switches. What is the current state of that emulation scene, or where would I be able to find out more information on the state of that scene?

    this is now a more elaborate question in its own thread, with the primary question here:

    "So I used to be pretty into 3DS hacking back when I used my 3DS a lot, but now I am on my switch and I am trying to make a decision on hacking it. First, my current switch I have is 100% hackable (bought it one month after the switch was released), and I am the current one paying for a family plan for online (many of my friends and cousins have nintendo switch consoles), so I need to make sure that online functionality on "A switch that i own" is not compromised in any way. From what I have read, Nintendo has stepped up their ban game from the 3ds, and that EmuNAND can help protect against a ban? (correct me if im wrong there), but at the same time, wal-mart's black friday deal for the new switch is an option for me as well, to have a hacked and unhacked switch (as the newer one comes with better battery life too). I am trying to decide mainly if I should hack my current switch and do everything in EmuNAND, or if I should have a second console to ensure that no bans occur."
