Hi all,
Last day i read allot about al the different methods of Hacking the switch. Now i think i Will do the following. But is it possible and are my thoughs true. Please let me know

WHAT I WANT:
I want to play my original cartridge games online and i want to play also downloaded nsp/xci games.

WHAT I THINK WILL WORK
I have 2 sd Cards (SD1, SD2) and a not ptched switch firmware 8.1, using a portable payload injector,

1. Make a full backup using hakate
2. Store the backup on a pc
3. Format SD2 make 2 partions for emummc “ex”FAT and put on tinfoil and goldleaf and downloaded games
4. Format SD1 nothing on it (going to use it as clean sd card for sysnand)
5. Make a emummc with hakate and SD2
6. Start atmosphere and install games and play (Will stay offline/Airplane mode)

Now i want to play online legal games like SMM2, FORTNITE ETC

7. Complete turn of the switch
8. Take out SD2 and put in SD1
9. start switch normal
10. Put in cartridge with games en play online (like normal switch)

IF i want to play downloaded games again

11. First go ON airplane mode then Put off switch
12. Change SD1 to SD2
13. RCM jig and payload inject
14. Start atmosphere
15. Play my games i installed earlier

Is this thought right? Because i use emummc my main sysnand is never infected right? Also because i use 2sd card they can never defect i am using cfw because i Will be always offline when using the other sd card and cfw.

I hope this is right or do i miss something? I think is is almost the best way to do best of both world??

Thnx allot for al comments and thought. Togheter we Will be beter

I just have 2 switches as I have too much to lose if ever my account gets banned, also it is a known fact removing and putting SD cards frequently damages the SD card slot without which no homebrew is possible. Infact I went ahead and bought a 3 rd switch and that was a ipatched one but luckily on 5.1.0 so here's hoping for deja vu on 5.1 0 fingers crossed.

Yeah, you can use one SD for clean NAND (online) and one SD for emuMMC. I am not sure if you know but no one has been banned yet for having CFW files on their SD card.

That's exaclty how I did/do it. I even have two SD cards (cloned with http://www.hddguru.com/software/HDD-Raw-Copy-Tool/) for Atmosphere/emummc because it already happened two times that installing nsp via Goldleaf/USB bricked my emummc.
In that case I just clone the other card again, or restore the raw image.

Another hint to prevent confusion: Set sysnand theme to white and emunand theme to black (the dark side).:) Also completely delete wifi config on emunand, or at least use 90dns or keep standard gateway empty, if you just want LAN.

@p00B73 so you have 3 sd cards then?


There is always a risk offcourse. But i think when i am always offline with SD2 (with emummc and cfw) and i go only online with SD1 then they can never trace me. Only when i make a mistake

So a dark and light side is a very good idea

eMMC and emuMMC use a different Nintendo folder. Also if you install games to NAND they will be in different partitions on the sd card.

I there somebody who can make a video of this setup and let me see what you exactly do. I am little scared because i have more then 30 legal games (also eshop) and it is a lot of money i trow away if i fail. (Yes i know beter dont use CFW but i also want cfw.)

Yes, I have 3 SD-cards.:) There might always be a risk when going online with a switch that has been running CFW on sysnand, but so far my switch hasn't been banned.
I never played any games online, only used eshop and the switchbru appstore.
Using emunand should be as safe as possible using what's available today.

Good to know!! Thnx man! I also not play very much online. But only the thought of beeing banned is making me uncomfortable. Now i have to wait for my rcmloader and jig. Then the adventure is going to start.
Do you have a possibilty to make a short video of how you use it?

Sounds good. You should also install Incognito on the emuNAND, that way you can go online without worrying about getting banned (you just won't be able to use Nintendo online services), for online homebrew and such.
You don't really have to go in airplane mode on sysNAND before switching. It's toggled separately for each NAND.
