    Do you really need to carry all those games with you at all time? The XCis are like cartridges, they are not installed - you can removed and swapped with other games. I hope TX will add external hard-drive support for the dock in the future, this way we can drag and drop the XCI between the Switch and Hard-drive without having to remove the SDcard.

    Hahaha, I know you are joking but still; Snipperclips Plus dumps just fine and works in SX OS, just came to testing it.

    Without creating another thread (I've used the search function and haven't found the answer):

    If you use version 1.1 (well 1.2 now), do you still need to use the old method to prevent your fuses from being burnt or can you just update your console using the regular system update?

    (The console is on 2.0 btw. Would, obviously, be updated to the latest).

    I have had multiple situations where I did not have a game with me and people where more interested in playing that.
    So yes, to some extent. It's a convenience thing for me really. And to also keep the carts at home, where I can't lose, misplace etc them.
    I dont need a dock usb solution for now ;)

    Whenever you use a regular system update, fuses will be burnt (if you get to a new first digit in the FW version).

    maybe stupid question (although some say they don't exist):

    can't we update in autorcm/hekate-whatever free cfw thing/sx os, so that the switch gets updated, but because we have the hacked bootloader set up, no fuses get burnt?

    Trump thinks that Kim is an idiot wasting time looking for hosts to patch his games. He pulled out his Switch with SX OS and showed Kim how it's done. Kim marvelled at the progress that money can bring. Together they shake hands and play Snipperclips.

    DK works with Rev001 dump
    2x Labo BBB - black screen (maybe bad dump)
    Tennis+other type2 games work.

    All homebrew including gcdumptool and nxshell 0.3 work just fine.

    I myself wonder that too. If it does, you could have your 2.X firmware dumped and play on 5.1 without issues, and just restore once a better way(?) to launch comes for the lower firms.

    this is possible :) but it's a real long difficult way. https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...unofficially-without-burning-any-fuses.507461

    my question was basically 'can't we update via a game, but with hacks loaded in the background to stop the fuses getting burnt'

    I should do that everytime I go OFW and want to go online? It'd make sense to have SX OS automatically clear logs on every boot, that is when the payload is started where you select cfw or OFW. Would make things more comfortable.

    The Switch's CPU contains e-fuses which will burn depending on to which firmware you update, if the bootrom encounters that the emmc has a firmware that mismatches the amount of burnt fuses, it'll panic and refuse to boot and thus prevents downgrading

    so is this done to avoid downgrade?

    If I use CFW and want to upgrade the system, do I have to wait for an upgrade of the hakers?

    Money is a great motivator, if they really have over 100k licenses sold then that's a lot of cash.

    What's the cheapest license $25? That's 2.5million and that's before any mention of the dongle sales
