    Updated to sx os 2 as soon as it was out, now the setup is going on for almost three hours out of the said 20 min. In the meantime I'm reading all kind of bad things about that emunand and I'm not feeling so comfortable

    I gues on earth.
    I guess you can't end it. If you force shut down your Switch, your nand might get corrupted (not sure about this, but it is writing to your NAND!!!)
    And if it will work, going online on any of those will get you banned sooner or later.

    I hope you did a backup before anything...

    But on the bright side if you do corrupt your nand you can try the fabled brick-to-unban trick that doesn't really exist.

    I'm sorry man. You are in a bad spot. If you turn off you brick like Kubas said. But as soon as it gets done you might get banned

    The biggest problem is that even if it would take hours, your switch will die before it would be done, so you would brick (probably).

    I don''t really want to brick your switch but I don't know Cancel might work.

    It das, but extremely slowly (300ma I think max)

    Depends on you. Do you want to cancel it and see what it does or wait and see what happens?

    The way TX installs EmuNAND is by directly changing the NAND inside your console. Interrupting such a delicate and fragile process shouldn't lead to anything less than a brick.

    Cancel seems safer than dead battery... I'll wait about ten minutes and then cancel

    It charges extremely slowly and I think it even discharges in RCM because of that.

    Is plugged, but it seems that in rcm it consumes more than it charges

    I hope you have made a full rawNAND backup before attempting this, as you should. The TX ""emunand"" solution is not emuannd, its dualboot and it does directly write to NAND creating a new partition, if you cancel that process there is a high chance of a brick.

    Cancel it now, do not let the battery die.

    I suggest you to cancel it right now, three hours is more or less the amount of time the battery lasts

    EDIT: Many people told you to not cancel it, but I think it's better cancelling from software that let the console dies. Dunno man, it's your choice.

    hopefully, it creates a new partition and then just copies to it. That wouldn't brick it, would it?

    It highly depends where the process is hanging. Without being able to see a log as the process is executed (as TX should have done) it's impossible to say.

    ...
    Pressed cancel, it did it in a couple seconds and next thing on screen was: "Emunand creation successful"
    I actually don't know what to think
