Hello
I bought my switch very long ago (may 2017, 2 months after its original release) so I know it's a first gen and so, that it is hackable
I'd like to know what I should start with to hack my first gen switch, atmosphere? fusée gelée?
What is the proper way nowaday to hack a first gen switch?
What would you recommend me?
Personally, I'm unconfortable with the paperclip trick as I don't know if I might break something :(
So far, I've put the sd files in the sd card, what should I do next?

Thanks

You can update the payloads on an RCM loader. (By connecting the RCM loader to a PC).

When you have the SD card stuff properly set, (I recommend DeepSea AIO package).

[If you only want atmosphere, I don't know how to do help there.]

Enter RCM mode by using the jig on the right rail, then hold power + Vol +.

(I used a Tinfoil method instead for pins 9 and 10 to enter RCM mode when I didn't had RCM Loader.)

Connect the RCMLoader to the Switch. (The payload you chose should load).


Now alternatively, you can just use a jig and connect to PC or a compatible phone to inject the desired payload once the Switch has entered RCM mode.
Just saw the price on Amazon, guess I'll try and retry with the paperclip
But how do I know when it works?
