    If you never booted to your NAND with CFW but only entered RCM, you should be fine.

    Never update anything or even go online with anything CFW. You will be banned. If you want to update CFW you have to do it with ChoiDujourNX.

    If you want to play online, only do this in clean SysNAND. Never boot with CFW to SysNAND if you use it for online purpose. If your SysNAND is clean, you can update it and go online. If your SysNAND is not clean, you need to restore a clean backup.

    When referring to "clean" is it possible to check any logs to verify all is clean?

    I think you can mount the NAND of your switch but I have never done this. But in your case you don't have to clean it.

    If you have never booted with CFW to SysNAND, you can go online in SysNAND.

    Just for the sake of learning because I may revisit sometime in the future. If I would have booted to CFW (emmummc) would I then have to go through the cleaning process or would I also be safe since it was the emmummc on my SD? Does the system settings let you know you are CFW anywhere after booting? Do you happen to have a link to the cleaning process?

    Also, was the fact that I kept myself on airplane mode a factor in being able to simply needing to delete the hack files?

    Hi!
    I need to ask something, noobish as it is.
    We are a small indie game dev team, so I'm thinking of getting us a switch, so we can import, test and play our projects. And eventually publish them.
    I thought the easiest and cheapest method would be cfw, is that right?

    You don't have to clean anything if you have booted with CFW to emuMMC. Just throw away the emuMMC partition and delete unnecessary stuff from the SD and you're good to go. Because you haven't touched the eMMC with CFW but only the emuMMC.
    If you are using Atmosphere, you can check in the system settings (firmware version) if you see "AMS X.X.X".

    And simply formatting my SD will remove the partition and and delete the hack files. Thank YOU! I'll revisit this sometime in the future.

    Should I do a new backup of my clean sysNAND after I update to 9.10? And is there any reason to update my offline emuMMC CFW?

    I now understand the order operations that the process follows. (Pls someone correct me if I’m wrong) I understand my logs and system is clean because hekate/atmosphere runs before the switch OS is booted. Therefore without actual launching any of the attached icons it’s as if my console is still clean/virgin

    You don't need a new backup of your clean SysNAND. But if you have burnt fuses I would recommend to create one. For your second question: You should update your emuMMC if you want to play games which require a higher firmware.

    It's clean.

    I see there's a new update on switch. I was on the latest firmware with my non-hacked, patched switch, does it actually change anything if I update to this latest firmware? Is there some kind of exploit patched with the very last firmware?

    Yes especially if you go the entire DIY route and make your jig while using a USB cable alongside a computer or Android device.

    No but right now CFW & homebrew are a bit unstable on the latest firmware so unless you have to play online, I would advise holding off on updating.

    My switch isn't hacked though, but if somehow it would be possible in the future I might jump in. So if there were a possible exploit on my current firmware that got patched with the lastest one, I might have held off. So I can go and update right?


    yeah I think I'll probably get paranoic every fw update lol

    My apologies. I missed the part where you said your console was patched. In that case, the difference of being on 9.1 and anything above 7.X is the same as there are no exploits past 7.X

    Still no cases of people being banned due to fuse number mismatch?
    Just trying to keep up to date.
