    What should I do with a 3.0 firmware unit?

    I want to backup the NAND. Not sure which program is best. I was thinking of sticking to 3.0 firmware and just using NSP files to avoid firmware requirements. Also is there anyway to stay at 3.0 + FAT32 and split the NSP files?


    For whatever reasons I don't want to upgrade with 5.1 I know I can do this without burning efuses. I would just rather stay at 3.0 if possible.

    You could update without burning fuses and go back to 3.0 if/when coldboot comes out. no?

    should I even bother using the sx pro software at this point? Just use the jig update without burning efuses. And use Hekate - CTCaer mod v3.2 ??

    what about the issue with the gamecart firmware?

    Can I backup NAND with SX Pro?

    Coldboot? Afaik there are no coldboot solutions, the only things revealed so far have been for tetherless warmboots but even those are nowhere to be seen.

    if you stay on 3.0.0,only 3.0.0 games can be played. get a spare switch update to latest 5.1.0 and you get all the features and all games too.

    Why not? SX OS is awesome, best of all worlds (xci & nsp & homebrew).
    Screw the gc, there is no issue yet as there is no current need to be on lower firmware gc. And if one ever arises I'm sure someone will find a way around it.
    No you cannot backup NAND with SX yet, they are working on it. Which is funny because Hekate IPL can do it so I don't know why they don't just copy that shit like everyone else says they do. They could have released a 1.5 by now.

    1. Hekate - CTCaer mod v3.2 to backup NAND

    2. Update firmware without burning efuses with ChoiDujour

    3? Can I just install OSX now or do I need to install an AutoRCM first?

    4. Activate SX OS offline?. install AutoRCM

    It's up to you, if you want to use a jig every time you boot or not..

    1. Yes
    2. You can use ChoiDujourNX, much simpler.
    3. You don't really "install" SXOS. Yes you can boot the sxos payload anytime from RCM whether autorcm or not.
    4. I would do everything offline in SXOS. I've been using autoRCM from briicmi with no issues.

    Don't forget to also use biskeydump to get your keys.

    AutoRCM is REQUIRED if you go to 4 or above and ever want to go back to 3.
    NOGC is REQUIRED if you go to 4 or above and ever want to go back to 3 AND WANT TO BE ABLE TO USE PHYSICAL GAME CARTS.

    Offline activation is easy, there are full instructions in the SX OS PDF downloads.
    TL;DR

    AFAIK the OS will freak out and panic if too many fuses are burnt.

    It's been a while since I bothered reading about this though. Am I wrong in this?

    Well I haven't tried it personally but both hekate and sxos bypass the fuse checks, and the title "How to install/run ANY Switch firmware" would be very misleading otherwise.

    Oh boy, technically AutoRCM is not what protects the fuses but without AutoRCM you will most likely burn the fuses. That is because the Switch's bootloader is the actual thing that burns fuses so to prevent this you would need to substitute one that doesn't (i.e. ReiNX, Hekate, SX OS V1.1+). However to substitute the bootloader, you need to boot into RCM first. AutoRCM pretty much guarantees you will only ever boot into RCM meaning the risk of burning fuses now depends if you use the right bootloader and the only that will burn fuses is SX OS V1.0. Without AutoRCM, you will need to boot into RCM through other means but that other method must be 100% effective because if it fails even once, your fuses will be burnt by the time you see the Nintendo logo.
