    There are no games that require firmware 9.1.

    If you ever update the CFW, I recommend updating the CFW before updating the firmware.

    Hekate is a payload that doubles as a bootloader meaning it can boot CFW.

    I don't have that much experience with the RCM Loader so I suggest checking out their website.

    I have found an un-patched switch, which I have just purchased, only to realise it has been updated constantly. Will I still be able to use the F-G exploit from latest version?

    Yes the F-G exploit is not firmware dependant

    Thank you ^^ I'm excited now! I have a week to wait until the switch arrives.

    One other thing, I will be taking all precautions to avoid bans, but I do plan on installing and running backups. How often are bans handed out? IF I was to run a pirated version of a game on CFW and play online without cheats or mods, what is the likeliness of a ban resulting?

    100% you would be banned for going online with a pirated game so if I was you i'd keep it offline but it is totally your choice

    I need some help, I am trying to load Hekate without any success. I have followed multiple guides. I am using a rcm loader and the switch is from launch so def not patched. Everytime I try to load the Hekate it only boots to sideways text stating "Missing LPO (sleep mode) library! Missing or old minerva library! Update your bootloader folder! press any key...." I have drag and dropped most current boot loader folder to SD. I have tried downloading the files for the SD card from multiple sites including sdsetup and the kosmos pack as well as straight from gthub. It keeps doing the same thing. Since there was the options to get in to tools I thought i would at least try to back up my Nand etc. However it said my SD was not FAT partition even though it is formatted in Fat32 (mac disk utility). I did partition the 128 SD card to have a 33GB partition (for creating SD nand to run HB from).

    How do I get it to work. I want to create emmc on separate partition to run Homebrew. Mainly want checkpoint and the stuff for checking dens etc in pokemon.

    just got myself a new microsd card, planning to start a new with my switch, can you view my steps and say if it's in correct order or not?

    1.Factory reset my switch // Restore my original NAND backup (do both?)
    1+.Turn off AutoRCM
    2.Setup my SD card with exploit like Atmos
    2+.Plug my SD card and inject Hekate
    3.Setup EmuMMC for the first time (right now my system use Sysnand, that's why i want to reset)
    4.Re-download all game, setting up Incognito, and the homebrew that i wanted

    any step i missed?

    You don't need to perform a factory reset if you are restoring your original NAND backup because a NAND restore wipes the system cleaner than a factory reset. Anyways, your other steps are fine.

    Did the step 1 just fine, now it is possible to play online right?

    i want to link my nintendo account on the system but it said i need to update the system first. If i updated the switch with 'official' way, do i need to make a new NAND backup? because my nand backup right now is on 8.0.1 and i remember seeing someone said here that you cant't use an 8.0.1 backup on a 9.1.0 switch.

    Or, do i need to set up EmuMMC first and the update the system using ChoiDujoirNX?

    How do I switch back and forth from cfw/ofw on a whim? Say I want to update and download the dlcs for one of my previously owned games through the eShop/Nservers but not do it while on cfw where I can risk a ban from online play. How would I do this? I have setup a emuMCC partition on my card through hekate and always booted atmosphere/cfw (emuMCC). I never booted or touched sysNAND. Is going back to ofw and downloading and playing my purchased games easy as powering off the switch and booting it like normal with the SD card removed?

    The NAND when I'm using EMUMMC is in the SD card right? So I don't have to worry messing up my SYSNAND when installing NSPs in the NAND?

    I'm planning to hack my Switch as it's an older unpatched unit. 1. Does it matter it's on the latest firmware or is all firmware now hack able? 2. Can I make my own jig (I know this is at my own risk) and simply use it once to install Atmosphere with Auto RCM to get started? 3. Is there a recommended guide to getting started. Thanks

    1) If your switch is unpatched, you can hack it on every firmware. CFW supports the latest firmware (9.1.0).
    2) Yes.
    3) Best guide imo: https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/.

    Yes, emuMMC is located on your sd card. EmuMMC and eMMC use a different Nintendo folder. Therefore, you're fine installing NSPs in emuMMC.

    You can play online if the NAND you restored was clean as in it was made before ever running CFW & homebrew.

    You can still restore your 8.0.1 NAND dump even if you update your console to 9.1. The issue is when you do that, you have to boot through RCM to bypass the fuse check.

    Is your SD card formatted as FAT32 or exFAT? It should be the former. Also, make sure your CFW files are up to date.

    if i hack my switch, can i still play Karaoke Joysound? (カラオケJoysound).
    the app itself is free but seems the game requires internet connection & in-app purchase (monthly pass).

    only accessable by japanese account.

    thanks in advance :)

    is there any way to make my switch recognize a 3rd party controller as a gamecube controller? I ask because some games like grid and trials recognize analog trigger sensitivity but only for gamecube controllers, but others like the sn30 pro also have analog triggers.

    So I'm now getting a buddy to hard trinket mod my Switch. He's also throwing in SX OS with a license. I understand I can switch between CFW and OFW but my question is about .NSP and .XCI, with .XCI do updates come included? If not can I use .NSP format updates? If not is there anyway to use official updates and if so does this matter that they might be US updates on an EU console i.e. the game regions not matching the updates? I have a ton of original carts, so would I be better ripping these in the first place? Thanks
