DO NOT update through WiFi!
If you intend to save the fuses from getting burned update through ChoiDujourNX. Make sure to make a NAND backup beforehand, in case anything goes wrong along the process.
Note that autoRCM must be kept on at all tomes if you want to prevent the fuses from burning.
Additionally you may set up emuNAND and leave the sysnand as it is whilst only updating emuNAND.
I'd advise you to backup your save data too while at it.
ChoiDujourNX for updating the firmware
Checkpoint for backing up saves.

Update cfw to the latest
sx os latest = 2.8 beta
reinx latest = 2.4
atmosphere latest = 0.9.2 (also grab latest sigpatches if using atmosphere)
Then download update to 8.1.0 through choidujournx

If you're on atmosphere 0.9.2 yes It's safe to do so.
But first make a nand backup with hekate, and while at use any means of deriving the switch keys namely such as Lockpick_RCM and the Lockpick homebrew just in case anything goes wrong along the process.

When you are using ChoiDujourNX, you need to make sure you select the exFAT option if you want exFAT support. However, using FAT32 is recommended.

That's a matter of personal preference. I've never had any problems with installing over USB or FTP using the DZ version of Tinfoil and nut server. Also, if you want to install from the SD card on FAT32, you can split the NSP files.

If you would rather install large NSP files from the SD card without splitting them, you require exFAT.

    Did they shut down the pipeline?
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And it's no longer working?
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    75% built and it got shut down

    Was it ever operational?

    Costing a ton of jobs, environmental disaster, loss of a ton of money
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They still ship the oil, just in trucks instead of a pipe
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Okay so the pipeline (extension) was never operational, never worked, and shipping that oil was never cheaper because of it.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They do this stock investment thing Veho called futures trading
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    It's complex but yeah in spite of it not being operational (yet) they had planned on it being so

    They do this thing called "counting their chickens before they hatch".

    It's the same as when publishers claim piracy is costing them billions in "projected" earnings.

    A strong hunch of mine is that a cheap oil pipe from Alaska would have hurt the middle East and lowered prices. If I was a big investor in oil, I would probably not want that at all.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah and the truth is oil companies reported record profits yet there's no room to reduce oil prices at the pump because, um, economy.
