    If you want to update and keep autoRCM, use choidujourNX with the autoRCM option checked when updating.

    I don't believe it does. You can try launching it in SX OS right now and see if it black screens (which is a sign it doesn't work).

    Well Hekate's just a bootloader so it can't load homebrew without an accompanying CFW. Your options include Atmosphere, ReiNX, or "RajNX".
    Yes.

    You don't seem to understand. Hekate is just a bootloader aka a homebrew that is designed to power on the console. If there is no CFW on the SD card, then it will boot into stock firmware or OFW. SX OS is both a CFW and a bootloader but as a CFW, it does not support ChoiDujourNX; all of the other CFWs support ChoiDujourNX. For example, you can chainload another CFW from the SX OS menu to launch a CFW that supports the usage of ChoiDujourNX.

    It doesn't matter if you have AutoRCM or not if you update online although you may be risking a ban by having it enabled as it is not 100% clear whether Nintendo can detect AutoRCM or not.

    You will have to put the respective payload.bin file (aka bootloader) as well as the CFW on the SD card which is pointless to do if you only own SX OS. Chainloading is only really useful if you have the SX Pro as you can just send the alternative payload.bin in the first place without sending the SX Loader and subsequently chainloading into another bootloader.

    While you may not care about online services, a CDN ban will force you to use ChoiDujourNX anyways so might as well get used to launching it. And most bans are now being distributed as CDN bans so I wouldn't take that attitude about being banned so lightly anymore.
