    This guide maybe useless but do-able

    Assumption :

    Switch A has an SX OS License, it doesnt matter if the console is healthy or not, we just need its eMMC module
    Switch B is a healthy and working console

    How it work

    1. Backup the Switch A NAND to the micro sd card if possible, but if you got a bad or defective unit, then remove the eMMC module only along with its SX OS license.dat
    2. Backup the Switch B NAND to the micro sd card, and remove the eMMC module
    3. Install the Switch A eMMC module to Switch B, then restore the Switch B NAND into it
    4. Copy or use SX OS license.dat from Switch A into Switch B
    5. Use the latest SX OS version , e.g 2.7.1 beta, and boot the SX OS
    6. Done

    So each SX OS license is tied to a specific eMMC module (the eMMC chip), because each eMMC chip has a unique serial number

    That's it..

    Well that's another way to avoid spending $30+. Think I'll just have the other switch use Atmosphere instead

    would work but i guess Nintendo locked all NANDS to the System. this is the reason for PRODINFO and PRODINFOF. am i wrong? thought this is what i heard.
    EDIT: not PRODINFO and PRODINFOF. i meant biskeys

    It ought to be possible to decrypt the nand using the first console's biskeys, inject the prodinfo and prodinfoF from the second console, then re-encrypt it using the second console's biskeys.

    Yeah we cannot transfer the NAND to other console, but we can transfer sx os license. So think about a 256GB eMMC bundled with SX OS license..

    Pretty sure people have successfully swapped the eMMC modules before, to increase storage among other things.

    Well that but Atmosphere will release EmuMMC soon. That's the biggest feature SXOS have. Making SXOS useless for good. Can't wait to try it on my 2nd Switch

    @sthetix does an average job on his tutorials, had to help numerous people following his tutorial and messing up, his video isn't always clear, always missing steps somewhere.

    It's a good cheat finder I'm not gonna lie. Faster and convenient. I would bother to try EdiZon but I really dont wanna go though the hassle of restoring nand after I'm done using it. Waiting until EmuMMC is released so I can try EdiZon cheat engine

    Not to be that guy, but if you thing emunand is the biggest feature SX OS has to offer, you're lying to yourself. You know SX OS's biggest feature is XCI loading and the only feature that Atmosphere will not copy.

    Ppl will still have many reasons to keep using the sxos I cannot part ways with it simply b/c it allows xci loading/mounting from an external HDD which some ppl tend to forget in their nsp arguments.
    Switching to atmosphere means I lose 80% of my game library, but I wouldn't mind using it on a 2nd switch just for 1 or 2 homebrew apps

    I have used many of the ops videos, 3ds/switch, never had an issue, easy to follow and on the rare occasion I do have an issue always seems to answer my questions on YouTube.
