    Please add fixed sleep mode for downgraded fw with burned fuses on the next release. That way if a new firmware comes out. We can update sysnand burning fuses and leave emunand on the older firmware without loosing sleep mode until you tell us it's ok to update again. Hekate 4.6 figured it out so please credit the open source devs responsable to avoid having more drama related post. Thanks for your amazing continued support.

    Ahh I don't have an account there and I don't feel like making one. I think I'll make one when their new forum comes out.

    I've downloaded the sx installer from the sx website and extracted the zip and copied over the switch folder but when I go to the homebrew menu on my switch. All I see is No homebrew found on micro sd.

    When i check my micro sd card I can see that there is the folder switch/sx/sx.nro

    any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I'm running latest firmware 6.2

    do you have an Emunand set up and are by any chance trying to run this off your Emunand? Because that won't work. The contents you see on desktop PC is Sysnand, the Emunand cannot access this.

    Use atmosphere as an external payload until they resolve the kip issue. My guess is that they're working on their "own" version of the kip with a network PC UI.

    it doesn't matter if you're using emunand or not. make sure winrar is up to date and redownload zip and extract to your sd card. if that don't work you might have issues with your sd card. check for errors. you could try formatting it.

    A quick question about the new form of emunand (the hidden partition)....

    Is it considered a better option that the previous form (writing a file to SD).
    If it is... can someone please explain why?..

    I can't see how it's any better (or worse)....
    If the card corrupts you'll likely lose all the partitions as well.

    At the moment whenever I pop the card out for a new game or update... I just copy the emunand files in any file manager..
    I don't need to image a hidden partition with a separate program or cmd line util.

    Thanks

    It's $60, just buy the goddamned game. If you have enough free time to whine about not being able to pirate one specific game then you most likely have enough money to just own it legitimately

    I’m confused, don’t you have to buy the game anyway to play online? I thought you get banned if you don’t have a vaild cert.

    I'm fairly certain that's correct. Smash Bros can be played entirely offline, though, assuming you just want to stick to World of Light or have friends to play with

    There's a kip that redirects the local Wi-Fi mode to tunnel over the internet, allowing banned consoles and pirated copies to play with other people (plus, no Nintendo Online Subscription needed). Since SX OS doesn't support third party kips and hasn't implemented this kip themselves, people on SX OS can't make use of this feature.

    The hidden partition is considered better because if you're using exfat on the SD, and run some homebrew that writes or modifies files on SD, you have a chance of hitting the exfat corruption bug which can destroy the entire filesystem and all files within it. But the hidden emunand partition will never get corrupted since it's not part of the exfat partition. Also bootup time will be a tiny bit faster since it doesn't need to map all the sectors of the emunand files.

    That's the main benefit and thus more safe.

    Interesting, I didn’t know that was even an option. I guess that’s better than no online play. I imagine that the matchmaking would be slow considering there would be a lot less people using this method of online play.

    Thanks for the info...

    I had heard about the exfat bug (I use exfat), I'm unlikely to run into it since I'm not really using homebrew any at the moment.
    But I guess I should really err on the side of caution.. is there a way to transfer the file emunand to the hidden partition emunand easily?

    Also has anyone verified that if they are hit by the exfat bug, it only damages the main partition and not the partition table itself (which would lose all partitions)..

    Cheers!
