    No, both exploits used for patched and unpatched consoles have to be performed again if the console turns off. Sleep mode is a thing however. Also, you can use the web exploit primarily meant for patched consoles on unpatched ones, but the RCM exploit that only works on unpatched consoles is far better.

    Hi guys, I'm very new to the switch scene. After reading through some post i guess my ipatched switch is affected with supernag. Are there any updates regarding supernag?

    There is no way to remove the supernag on an ipatched system, unless you made a NAND backup from before the supernag, which you could restore with a hardmod.

    Hey, I'll get my unpatched Switch in a few days and I have a question about the Nand Backup.
    So I saw a few threads where people said to make a backup with ReiNX as an example and some said to make it with Hekate first. So this Switch is untouched with any kind of custom firmware so whats the best deal for me?

    Hey! So the the guide I used to hack my Switch never told me to make a pre-CFW backup and also told me to use sysnand for everything so that's what I've stupidly been doing. So I got some questions,
    1) I've only used checkpoint and a GBA emulator via the homebrew menu (by going on "album") nothing is on my homepage. If I make an emmnand and move everything onto there and clean the sysnand (if possible), will it be clean enough to use for OFW like going online again? (Someone on Discord said I should be ok but I wanted to double check).
    2) If not, am I able to use OFW on the emmnand and use the sysnand for all the dirty stuff?
    3) If I end up getting a Switch ban, am I able to transfer all my games/offical save data to a new clean Switch? (I injected a save from PKHeX to my Pokemon Shield that I really don't want to lose).

    Is it possible to switch over from having emumcc as SD files over to partition instead? Realized after months of having it as SD files that partition based is faster..

    Hey so I work for a pawn shop and we recently had a switch fall out of pawn that has a parental lock. I did a little research and it looks like I can remove it with the master key but it looks like I need a device id? What is the best and easiest way to get this? Thanks in advance to anyone who might reply.

    Dump it with Hekate first.

    1. No it will never be clean enough
    2. emuMMC is just a copy of sysMMC so the risk is the same
    3. No as it requires an Internet connection even with the local save data transfer feature

    Hi !
    I'm here with a really random question : I've a CFW'd Switch, works fine. My only issue is that I have to check folders in my SD Card (screens / videos / checkpoint stuff) pretty often but I don't want to turn off my switch all the time and re-inject all the time.

    I'm using airplane mode so no FTP.

    Is there any way to read my sd card as mounted on my pc ?

    Thanks o/

    Ok so I read this already. I guess I should have asked how does one get the Prodinfo off the switch?

    You select the eMMC SYS option for dumping partitions in Hekate although you can also get the Device ID from the fuses which you can also dump with Hekate.

    When/if I get a new switch I might go online just to transfer asap and hopefully the time it takes is quick enough for Nintendo not to notice lol

    I have all of my games in nsp, nsz, and xci formats. do some games only work in one of those formats or should all games work? I'm quickly running out of space on my hdd, so I don't know if I can keep files in all three formats at the same time.

    Possibly dealing with an older HDD that simply gave out, unrelated to my switch. But I find the timing and circumstances odd.

    I attempted to load a Pokémon sword XCI from my 2.8 SX OS games list and I got a firmware update required pop up (Im on 8.1.0 currently). I then went into 1.4 SX installer and found the xci there and Didn’t install the game but just clicked launch. Somehow the game loaded up without the update nag and my kid played it for a while with no crashes or issues. Guessing it skips the FW requirement When launching from installer?

    Didn’t use the hdd for a Couple weeks after that. Just tried it on the switch, and it does not recognize it. Then the same result with 2 PCs. It has been unplugged since running the XCI, was not dropped or anything.

    Could just launching the game in this way and playing for a while kill the whole hdd?

    Thanks for any info or speculation..

    Only SX OS supports mounting .XCI files but all CFW support installation of all 3 types.

    Hello,

    i installes Pokemon Lets go on my switch with 0.9.4. atmosphere (hekate).

    After installing the game started without problems. But when I want to start the game again it won't open because of a system system check.

    What can I do about it? Is there some way to remove the firmware check? My switch is on 9.0.1.

    Unsure how to word this but here it goes....

    My SD card is almost full and I use SXOS. Most of my games are saved to the SD card, however, none of the games are using anywhere near enough of the memory bar, and I cant figure out what is keeping it in the "white" (if that makes sense?). Most installed games/updates/dlc are saved to the SD card and show up "green", but these barely take a chip off-even BOTW.

    What could be causing this?
