    Yeah, I was thinking a few weeks back actually that he’s uncharacteristically quiet of late also.
    Hope he’s ok.

    There is no point to downgrading if you use a hardware exploit that can't be patched by an update (assuming this is the case but we don't know anything for sure yet)
    But the best course of action is going to be using an emuNAND just as with any other exploit method. And with that there are no issues with downgrading.

    You may need to restore a nand back up for some reason and if the nand is on a older firmware with less fuses that would be a problem if the chip glitches the boot loader after the fuse check. It would also be very easy for malware to brick you by just wiping out the boot loader where as if it attacks the boot rom it won't be a problem.

    Don't run RCM payloads you don't trust, and only use CFW in emuNAND, that should go without saying. As long as those rules are followed, your sysNAND is safe.

    If you by any chance from eastern side of Moscow region - i can do it for you. In the past i have successfully soldered chips on ps2 and xbox 360. I did bios mod and ide mod on sega dreamcast. And now i am ready to install this modchip on my switch.
    Otherwise i can help you with advice. It`s not that hard as you think. You just need a little bit of practice.

    Trust is a funny concept in this scene. I often see people saying not to trust this or that application, it's closed source, don't rust the author, etc... But then if you ask them what to run they tell you to download some random zip.

    The bottom line is we should take a NAND backup before starting, and then pull a fresh one before running anything new.

    1) It's usually way cheaper
    2) Some people still have bad impression from TX's less than favorable actions in the past
    3) Most of those will be used to pirate games anyway, so there's not much concern for ethical side of things overall.

    Ok, do as you wish. Just get an old pc motherboard, good flux gel (keller TT is my choice) and good tin solder. And try yourself as much as you like. You will learn in no time. Just remember - do not use soldering acid and clean the soldering area with alcohol before and after.
    You can PM me if you have questions.

    Soldering isn't my strong point, might need some practice beforehand or hire someone who does lol

    Your sysnand is safe as it can be while still actively modding your Switch. The risk still exists, but it's minimal.
