  2. Hello my unpatched switch is still on 9.0.1 and I just ordered an RCMloader aka payload injector that is set up for 9.1.0 firmware, will that be an issue or should I update my switch first? Thanks for your time.

  3. I did all the steps and they worked correctly but when I try to go into the homebrew thing it only shows my photos and not the apps. and I am holding R when I open it

  4. so if oyu turn it off and on again, it would be as if it was never hacked? Can i get into nintendo online then and not be banned?

  5. If I were to play a game online. Would it still be safe for me to have Homebrew on the Switch? Or would I have to remove Homebrew.

  6. I have the jig in, but when I hold the volume up and power button on my switch either the switch turns on or the RCM on Tegra dosen't change. My Switch isn't patched

  7. One doubt. Can I hack the switch and continue playing online games that I have purchased or that are free?

    And what's the worst thing that can happend to me, can I get my nintendo switch bricked or something?


  8. If i do a hard reset on my switch so i'm no longer running the CFW, can I then go online without worrying about a ban or is it once you do this once you're always at a risk of ban and can't play online?

  9. For me, after doing some things (driver software download), I finally got it to detect that the switch is booted into RCM mode. I injected the payload, and it said payload successfully injected. But my screen is still blank, does this mean my switch is patched. I don’t know. Mainly because on the websites, it says that I have a serial number than may or may not be patched. The serial number is XAW10092126891

  10. When i load up the hekate, everything is fine until I load into the system. I click launch and then CFW (EMUMMC) like you did but mine loads the kosmos and then goes straight back to the launch menu. Did I do something wrong?

  11. i have a switch with fw 3.02 , already have a nand backup and the serial is compatible but i cant jailbreak my switch if i follow this tutorial i get stuck on the hekate screen logo. is it my fw too low to jailbreak?

  12. I'm having a problem getting the program to run. I've formated the SD to FAT32 moved all the files like you showed and once I click on launch and hit the program it shows the first atomosphere screen but then just brings me back to the menu to hit launch again.

  13. when i hit launch it loads the atlasnx kosmos screen then another kekate screen then just goes back to the menu does this mean my switch is patched or did i miss something

  14. Hello I'm stuck at the Atlas screen at 9:44 and it just brings me back to Hekate. I tried reformatting my SD card to FAT32 I re-download all the files but still nothing. Idk what the problem is.
