    I gues on earth.
    boot to OFW and update or use any other CFW and choidujournx (maybe now it works with SX OS, but it never did).

    EDIT: As you can see, xfinally finaly fixed that choidujour works.

    Confirmed it works. CFW+choidujournx+emunand gives you 6.0 on the microsd while leaving the ofw alone.

    You can try mine (under extras; should be the same for any CFW, except the backup part).

    Is it possible to install the firmware update without autorcm installed? Because i dont matter that my fuses will be burned.

    So I have successfully modded my "virgin" Switch stocked with original firmware 4.1 using SX PRO 2.0; Here are my steps:
    1. Backup your NAND (ALWAYS! never skip this step). I was able to backup my OFW 4.1 NAND and it does take more than an hour so charge your Switch before.
    2. Updated my Switch to the latest firmware 6.0 via nintendo network. Microsd cards (exFAT format) worked without any issue.
    3. Turn-off and start your SX OS 2.0 and load your CFW.
    4. Delete internet settings and/or put your Switch on Airplane Mode.
    5. Install your NSPs and Enjoy (and stay offline).
    *So far all the games are working without any issues. I have installed all the updates & DLC using NSP installer in SX OS 2.0 and has work flawlessly. I will keep everyone updated if I encountered any problems. Like I said before, I am on OFW 6.0 using SX PRO 2.0 with AUTORCM disabled and everything is ALL GOOD so far.

    Thanks ! one other question i have a nand backup and boot backup from a couple of months ago when sx pro was released.
    Do i need to make a new nand backup? Or can i use that one if something is going wrong?

    You can use the old one, but you would have to boot thru RCM in order to bypadd fuse count.
    So yes, you can, but make a new one.

    And is it safer to do a system firmware upgrade on emunand then on the original nand?
