    Hi everyone! I have a setup with an untouched sysNAND that I keep for legit games I play online and an emuNAND which I use for shadier things and homebrew.

    When I homebrewed my switch it was on 9.2.0 and now the latest version of Horizon OS is 10.0.4. I’m planning to play the new Paper Mario game on my emuNAND and wanted to upgrade my firmware just in case the game needed it.

    I tried to use ChoiDujourNX but found out near the last step I would need to keep AutoRCM on. I don’t want to do that because I use my switch when I’m outside sometimes and don’t always have my computer near me to use for booting.

    I don’t ever plan to downgrade firmware even if some cool exploit comes out later so burning fuses really doesn’t bother me, unless burning fuses has some other consequence that I’m not aware of.

    So my questions are:

    •Should I use ChoiDujourNX without AutoRCM to update my emuNAND to the latest firmware?

    or

    •What’s the best way for me to update?

    Any advice is appreciated. Thank you so much

    Keep your autorcm on and keep your switch on sleep mode, just get it charge as much as you need it.

    Is this the best option?

    Sorry if this comes across as picky at all; I’m just tryna see what my options are. I really appreciate you responding to my thread.

    The reason I hesitate is because I feel like that may be really bad for my battery overall since my playing pattern with my switch is only really frequent whenever a new game comes out and I don’t use it much otherwise so keeping it on sleep mode for weeks or months sounds like a bad idea. The idea of changing the way it boots concerns me cause I’m still sort a noob.

    I have mines like that for more than 2 years already with no problems at all, also i just play every 2 or 3 months.So dont worry and just make sure to charge the switch when battery hits below 20%.

    Hmm okay. Thank you! I’ll see if others respond and also just wait time see if the game I want to play needs a firmware upgrade. I don’t wanna be too impulsive yet. Might even try to get one of those portable payload injector things. Thanks again for the advice :-)

    If you are using EmuNAND for your shady stuff and not touching your sysnand in any way, and you update your FW on EmuNAND with ChoijoudourNX, AutoRCM does not affect your sysNand.

    Current CFW can correctly shut down your console.

    If you do not go into RCM mode and push a payload, you will just boot into sysNand.

    I would highly recommend a portable RCM loader (RCM loader one or Ns atmosphere, from my experience).

    I am occasionally using my console and like to turn it off when I will not be playing it for a while. I am keeping that configuration and it works quite well.

    Ahh I see. I ended up behind a little impulsive last night and updating my emuNAND with ChoiDujourNX but with AutoRCM off. Things seems to be working fine in all aspects. I’m still playing my legit games online on my clean sysNAND and the shadier stuff on my emuNAND. I appreciate the insight :-) I totally need to get one of the portable RCM loaders soon

    Autorcm does not affect sys update, it just autoboot to rcm, nothing else

    You can t shutdown the system tho, it will reboot to rcm, always
    It is not a good idea to charge the battery like crazy, you will kill it soon
    You can keep autorcm and use standby, or buy a loader and remove autorcm so that you can properly shutdown the system
