    If you dont know what auto rcm is do not install it, instead search around about auto rcm and decide if you want to use it, many users have had issues as they do not understand it.

    You only need the dongle every time the switch is turned off and on or reset. Once the os has loaded you can remove it.

    You will probably need to create the licence file then transfer it to pc and upload to tx for ur licence.

    You play on your tv the same as you normaly would remove the dongle once os has booted and put into dock.

    Its easier to keep your switch charged and only use sleep mode.

    Edit: look into making a nand backup also as your main priority before you start using homebrew or backups and if you go online with homebrew or back ups your switch will probably get banned from online.

    You should still backup your NAND even if you never play online. Be on the safe side. It will take 1-2 hours for the full backup, so please be patient. YOU MUST BACKUP.

    That's because SX OS is incomplete does not offer a way to backup the NAND. You will have to use a different payload to do that. Follow this tutorial on how to properly back up the NAND.
