    Hey guys, Sx os emmunand looks awesome, but I saw there was issues running it on 3.0 firmware switches. Just wanted to see if anyone has emmunand working properly on a 1.0 switch, maybe the 2.01 sxos helped?

    I think it works on 3.0 with the latest update. No idea about 1.0 though.

    I'm using emunand with 1.0 switch, everything is working fine, only problem is when I shut down my console with emunand, it will restart on original fw
    Maybe it is happening because I updated my emunand 6.0 fw

    Its up to you, just know that without auto rcm mode enabled it will always boot to vanilla horizon on restart. With auto rcm mode it will eliminate ever going into vanilla horizon.

    Does the SX OS free without license bring emunand?

    And to update it all offline to like 6.0 do you just need to run a game that brings FW 6.0 update?

    Also with SX OS free can we already play backups like using Layered FS or any other software just not using XCI games?

    I wouldn't mind buying it if it had M-SD emunand, but since it doesn't I won't buy it, but maybe I wouldn't mind using it without a license if it still brings emunand 4 free.

    I don't think you can use emunand without license, and can't play backups without license
    For updating emunand, you can use choidujournx update

    That's kinda the expected behavior.
    When you restart, everything is "back to normal" i.e. back to the 1.0 sysnand.

    Whenever you want to run in emunand, you need SX OS to load it. And to load SX OS, you need to go into RCM.

    You don't need AutoRCM (I think the point of having a 1.0 sysnand and 6.0 emunand is to "stay at low FW, but play at 6.0 without burning fuses", and you get to do it without AutoRCM if you use SX OS emunand).
    And your fuses are not at risk because you have sysnand at 1.0 (the bootloader won't do the fuse check with the emunand).

    Everything is running the way it's supposed to.

    If original gamecarts work on 1.0 sysnand, it hasnt been been updated.

    If original gamecarts work on 6.0 it has been updated.

    I don't recommend testing it on anything other than 1.0.
    Because this is how it apparently works:
    So if you test it on 6.0, you might end up updating a nonupdated gc reader.

    Just booting the switch on 4.x and up updates de gamecard reader, even if you dont boot any game, so the risk is already taken.

    Did you read the post I quoted? (json's post?)
    Because apparently, what you said isn't always true in SX OS

    And json seems to be a reliable source of info (he dissected the details of how SX emunand works, even before hexkyz did)
