Step-By-Step Emunand Guide? Thread starter Blueribbon Start date Dec 13, Blueribbon Noob Account. Dec 12, 9 1. I would like to stay on this for the time being, but use emunand at 6.

I have seen the guide for updating banned switches to 6. Can anyone help me out with this?When you update your system firmware version, your Nintendo Switch burns a microscopic fuse to prevent your Switch from being able to downgrade. Essentially, if a firmware tries to boot but too many fuses are burnt for that specific firmware version, the system will simply power off, preventing you from booting.

You can also use this guide as a way to upgrade your Switch if your Switch does not have access to the internet or is superbanned, and to downgrade your Switch to any firmware version.

If something goes wrong or you need help, check troubleshooting. This is only intended to be used on consoles with a vulnerable RCM. Failure to heed this warning will result in a bricked Switch. A later step will give you the option to enable or disable AutoRCM. Essentially, you are purposefully bricking your Switch in a controlled matter that forces it to launch into recovery. This might sound scary but is not actually dangerous on unpatched Switches, and can be undone at any time.

The Switch will not burn any fuses, meaning you can downgrade your Switch to a lower firmware version in the future should the need arise. You will never accidentally boot stock firmware, meaning you can avoid having telemetry data accidentally sent to Nintendo.

It is highly recommended that you enable AutoRCM as if you ever boot your Switch without Hekate, your fuses will burn and you will not be able to cleanly downgrade again in the future. If you just want to manually update your system firmware and do not care about burning fuses, you can leave AutoRCM disabled.

If you are downgrading to a firmware expecting less fuses burnt than you have, AutoRCM is required to boot your Switch until you upgrade again. You need to locate the firmware binaries for the firmware version you want to downgrade to.

These cannot be shared here as they are copyrighted hint: darthsternie. Extract the ChoiDujourNX. A new security feature in Atmosphere requires you to explicitly allow applications to write to BIS, something ChoiDujourNX needs to do to upgrade the firmware. The file extension must be changed from.

On Windows, you will be asked to confirm to change the file extension.

You'll just have to manually build it. Then boot hekate instead of SX and flash it to your sysnand. There are plenty of guides on here how to do that. Just search. Level 2. Joined: Sep 15, Messages: Country:. You must log in or sign up to post here.

Emunand stands for emulated NAND, and basically you could think of it as having a second operating system for your console stored on an SD card. Once you have an Emunand setup on your system, you have a choice of which version of your system you want to boot into.

For one thing, all system settings and installed data on your emunand is completely separate from your main system Sysnand. You can also maintain your emunand and internal NAND on two totally different versions of the system firmware if you would like to.

In my opinion though, the main advantage that we gain by using emunand on a Nintendo switch is that it gives us the possibility to enjoy playing games online on our devices by keeping our internal NAND completely clean and free of all traces of custom firmware or other homebrew… While still being able to enjoy those things on our device after we boot into the emunand side of the system.

My switch will never get banned

Many people who were early to install custom firmware and test homebrew on their Nintendo Switch found out the hard way that Nintendo keeps logs of basically all the activity you do on your device.

The only real defense to avoid being banned at first was to keep your Switch permanently offline or in flight mode after you started running homebrew so that the telemetry could never get sent back to Nintendo. Since that time, there have been some DNS solutions released which can help you block all connections to Nintendo while still being able to enable WIFI on your device. But using a DNS solution like this blocks ALL connections to Nintendo, which obviously makes enjoying your favorite games online impossible.

With those things out of the way, we can start by creating the Emunand. On this screen, touch the options icon.

On the new screen, tap the emunand option on the left hand side, and then choose create emunand. I would expect that the first partition option is the most safe and difficult for Nintendo to be able to detect from your system NAND. After that, choose continue to begin the emunand creation process. After emunand has been created, you can press the back button to return to the main Xecuter bootloader menu.

You can toggle this on and off, depending on if you want to start your custom firmware on system NAND or within the new emunand state. It exists to help keep things separate between your sysnand and your emunand. Once you have moved all your data into this folder, you will be able to see it and launch it after booting from your new emunand.

Hopefully you learned early on the importance of creating a clean NAND backup before you got started with homebrew, as this will give you the best starting point with the lowest chance of being banned. You can use either the Hekate payload, or the Xecuter bootloader to restore a NAND backup to your devices internal memory.This section of the guide will teach you basic information about terminology used, what you will be able to do after following this guide, and provide some warnings before you proceed.

This is a lot of info to take in, but if you are a complete noob to the Switch scene, you should seriously consider reading all of it.

Emummc (emunand) manual guide

Homebrew is a term used to describe software not authorized by Nintendo. This includes custom firmwares, tools, applications, games, emulators, etc. Custom Firmware CFW gives homebrew more access to the system than standard userland homebrew most commonly available on most systems. Currently, all Nintendo Switches sold before July can run custom firmware. Switches sold after this point may only be exploitable if they are on firmware 4.

This guide will include checking if your system is vulnerable. This guide will give you the ability to run a custom firmware of choice on a previously unmodified Nintendo Switch. The guide details usage of two exploits one of which with different implementations depending on the firmware version. The primary exploit is fusee-gelee sometimes also referred to as ShofEL2 or CVE, these are all the same exploit which takes advantage of an oversight in the Nintendo Switch built-in recovery mode referred to as RCM.

This is unlike the untethered coldboot exploits available on other systems such as Boot9strap for 3DS and Henkaku Enso for Vita. The fusee-gelee exploit allows for a full system takeover; the exploit runs before even the normal bootloader code, meaning anything about the normal Switch operating system named Horizon, or HOS can be changed. The exploit also allows dumping of the bootloader and any console unique information. For an advanced technical overview on how fusee-gelee works, you can view this paper.

This exploit also allows for a full system takeover, as we can reboot the system into a state with the same posibilities that fusee-gelee provides. Deja-vu is a browser-based, software only exploit. You must launch the exploit through the browser every time you reboot your system into stock firmware. Deja-vu currently only has implementations available from firmwares 1. The current deja-vu implementations are Nereba for firmware 1. This guide will focus on using a configuration of the Hekate custom bootloader, as well as the Atmosphere custom firmware, both provided through SDSetup.

You can also install ReiNX along the way if you wish to use that instead, however this guide will assume you are using Hekate and Atmosphere, and will not walk you through using ReiNX.

Atmosphere provides most things you might expect in a custom firmware, including homebrew, cheats, game mods, emuNAND referred to as emuMMC on Switchand more. Nintendo is taking no chances with the Nintendo Switch.

Permanent console bans can and often do happen.

How to install Emunand on your Nintendo Switch: Play games online without being banned

This guide will take many precautions to avoid getting banned, but this site assumes no responsibility if your system is banned. There is always a chance that your Nintendo Switch will brick. This is very rare, and often recoverable on fusee-gelee vulnerable Switches. For unpatched Switches, extra precautions will be taken to avoid bricking as much as possible.

Due to the level of access these exploits provide, malicious homebrew exists. These can brick your Switch or otherwise render your Switch inoperable. You should only ever run homebrew from trusted sources.

This guide will work on all firmware versions as long as fusee-gelee is not patched on the Switch. The guide will include a step for checking if fusee-gelee is patched or not.

If fusee-gelee is patched, this guide will only work on patched Switches running firmware 4. What is Custom Firmware? What will I get by following this guide?

The nand cleaning tutorial implies no clean backups were made beforeand that the only way to get a nand as clean as possible I am NOT necessarily saying a full-on clean one would be to use this method.

In the context of Nintendo 3DS, it generally refers to the memory chip inside the 3DS console and the contents stored on it.

NAND memory contains all of the system files needed to keep the 3DS running such as the firmware and stock apps eg. It's kept separate from the SD card, where downloaded games, photos, or extra data is stored. Okay, so what's sysNAND then? Brick When something goes wrong and a console is prevented from starting up properly. Can be either soft brick recoverable via software means or hard brick permanent, or requires specialist hardware intervention. CFW Stands for custom firmware.

Can be installed onto the system via certain tools. Contents range from eShop games, apps, DLC, to even update data. Can be accessed by the use of homebrew software like rxTools.

Can be physically removed. Hard mod A hardware modification. In the case of Nintendo 3DS, it usually refers to taking apart the console and adding a connector that allows you to directly access information stored on the on-board NAND chip via a PC. Homebrew Software not officially licensed or approved, created by hobbyists within the community. MenuHax An exploit used to run unapproved software on the 3DS such as homebrew or custom firmwares. An account used to link purchases and other social content on modern Nintendo consoles.

OFW Stands for official firmware, system software that has not been modified by the user and is completely untouched. Partition A segment on a piece of storage media. SD Card Stands for Secure Digital, a removable memory card used by the Nintendo 3DS to store non-system related extra data such as games and other media content.
