Hi

Switch region

- I purchased china version switch, how can I change it's default language to English in game?
Some game can't change the display text to other language.

use the nro inside this (press y then follow) (source included, not my work though)

will wipe your nand for a reset, backup your saves before use or you will lose them for good

use ONLY on emunand, don't use on real nand or you risk a brick

do not go online with this or you will be sure ban

attachment is removed, please use my new tool instead.

nothing is wiped, just use this and you are out.
ban risk still exists, do not use it on sysmmc a.k.a. sysnand and do not go online with this.

I just want to say THANK YOU for posting this.

I tried it and it worked. My tencent switch no effectively operates like an international switch. I also did it with a real nand. On first boot, I got a boot.dat error (or whatever), then I rebooted again, and everything came up and it ran the setup process as though it was a brand new international switch. Now my games that defaulted to chinese now default to english.

You rock.

Is the new Tencent-Switch-switcher developed by you? The repo owner has a similar username. If so, may I ask whether the switcher will wipe/reset the emunand like the incognito_mod here? Thanks!

Sounds great, wondering if i need to backup anything before using this GUI tool?
like game backups ? Not sure if I need to re-config everything like users on switch after reset the region?

cheers.

It will wipe everything installed to the eMMC which includes save data, game tickets, and software installed to internal memory.
