  3. This is correct. There are several brick NSPs floating around, be careful, only use trusted sources of games.

    Might want to also add a warning that everyone should make a full backup of the Switch and maybe link to a guide.

    Not doing this seems to be a common problem amd this could be used as a reminder for why they’re good to have.

    Don't think it would matter.. I read that there is a converted .xci version of the bricked "nsp" version. If run, it will bricked the system.

    Idiots, they keep taking hackable consoles out of circulation. The conspiracy theorist in me would say it's a secret program at Nintendo to kill off the hackable switches and piracy, while also forcing those people to buy new Switches. I know that's not the case, and it's just people being assholes, but it would be pretty funny if it was Nintendo.

    Just use a scene release from a reputable site.

    What would be funny is if they used the fake roms to somehow apply ipatches to the console, patching FG.

    "In regards to the Brick Code The one who made it, just released it into the wild as 1.14MB .nsp file. Now ANYONE who wants to be a dick can just add data to it and make it look like ANY NSP. Just download from VERIFIED people and SOURCES you TRUST. Be safe. ALSO BACK UP YOUR FULL NAND! You can recover. BACK UP YOUR NAND!" from a popular discord

    uh oh, I downloaded LGP and have been playing it all last night, does that mean I got the legit one? or is it a delayed brick?

    You should be fine but still make sure you have a nand backup/boot files backup

    ipatches can only be applied at the time of production, and once written to the chip cannot be modified in any way. FG in no way can be patched.

    I backed up my nand before making my emunand, I don't think I've backed up boot files though.

    MD5 hash check wont save you, its possible for the brick code to match the hashes. you need to verify the signature.

    Also wont save you because the hashes are sha256 :)
