    So I've perused the forums here on gbatemp for a little while, but i made an account to ask a question

    So I hacked my switch (as one does) but was a complete idiot and got console banned. Can I buy another switch to keep stock, and still keep my hacked switch? Will Nintendo giga screw me and ban the new switch as well? just making sure before I spend hundreds.



    and in b4 i get called a nintendo cuck for (considering) buying another switch

    You play in the partition that does not use CFW or homebrew.

    It needs to be an unpatched console which is determined by the serial number. Consult this thread for a list

    In order to load any CFW on the Switch, a payload must be sent via USB connection. This is typically done with a computer. The dongle can act as a substitute but is not a requirement for any CFW.

    They will not ban your second Switch.

    I thought during the process of homebrew installation that it made a NAND backup automatically and just realized now that it did not. I've done some tinkering in emunand with just homebrew (nothing illegal) and done nothing homebrew related in sysnand. If I do a NAND backup now and later somehow accidentally do something on sysnand that gets me banned, will a nand backup actually help or am I fucked for not doing the nand backup right away?

    dumb questions about hacking the switch, I'm a noob and its kind of overwhelming. all i know is my switch is on firmware 9.1. i went on two websites to find out if my switch is patched. one site says im not and other says yes. i also just picked up an RCMclip from xkit.xyz. i also checked out sites for a good video tutorial so i can get this hack going asap. i'm just braindead.

    - any help would appreciated.

    If you never booted to SysNAND with CFW, you're fine. Your backup should still be clean. A NAND backup doesn't help you if you're banned. It's for fixing a brick.

    Check your serial number here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/switch-...he-first-post-before-asking-questions.481215/.

    I recently got Atmosphere running on my Switch and am now running some games installed from NSP files. Some of them pop up a window saying there is a game update available (but I can still bypass that and run the game). Is it safe to install those updates?

    They will be downloaded online which can risk getting your console banned.

    There are different patches for Hekate versus Fusee

    So i just had to do a factory reset to fix a issue i had which means i have to reinstall everything. What is the best way to do multiple nsp installs at once via usb (both games and updates) on 9.1.0? Im currently using the latest tinfoil with nut server. And while usb install does work there doesn't seem to be a way to do batch uploads.

    I also tried awoo installer and while i can get it working via network for some reason it doesn't work with usb. Says no connection (which is weird cause like i said i do have usb working with tinfoil) And network installer is kinda slow

    So as soon as you mod the Switch, you’re at risk? Mine has the bootROM exploit. Can I run it hacked offline, and then reboot and be online and be fine?

    Ok, thanks Draxzelex. Is there a recommended way to get those updates off-line as NSPs, to install them manually?

    Upgrading my SD card? I currently have a 64gb card, and it is just not enough for me, so I got a 256gb card. Can I just copy everything over to the new card, or will I need to go through the whole process over again? I am using emuemmc.

    I did this several times while installing everything (moving from exFAT to FAT32 and back). Every time I would just copy all files in the SD card to my (Linux) laptop, format the card, and copy the files back. Never had a problem with that process.

    I need help. I was playing Pokemon and wanted to update the game but I didn't use an update file. Instead, I went to + update game via local group and updated with my other Switch (my switch lite and retail game) I had sx but I never made a emunand or anything to the sort because I don't want to waste another SD card and mess it up like I did with my 3ds SD cards. Anyway, the system reset itself while updating and now I can't load my cfw. I added a new boot file and deleted my Nintendo and switch folders replacing them from the backups I had on my HD. Can I please get help. Don't know what I did and if it's fixable. I can get the system to go in rcm mode and load the sx menu screen by plugging it in and with holding down the + volume. I don't remember which kind of backup I have :( would it be possible for me to restore my Switch and get my sx cfw back?

    Hi everybody

    I just followed the NH Switch Guide and everything seems to be working. If I try to install an .nsp though i get this error
    Error: 2002-4518 (0x234C02)
    Module: File system (2)
    Description: Invalid NCA (might mean missing sigpatches or a too low firmware) (4518)

    What should I do?

    Download them illegally from the Internet

    Are you using the latest SX OS?

    What is your current firmware version?

    Exactly as you described. You can download updates and install them the same exact way as you would a full game. The process is no different.

    I have emummc atmosphere 10.2 on latest firmware. Whenever I open album to access homebrew menu the system crashes. I figured out it happens when I enable sysclk and I'm in a game. If I close the game or if I disable sysclk it won't crash . Can someone help me fix this?
