Hello Switch Hackers/Modders! I bring you another Helpful Tutorial Today!!! I have not seen this posted anywhere else and it has been frustrating the hell out of me as it took me a while to find this info myself, so hopefully this makes it nice and easy for everyone! SYS-Modules are used to keep things running in the background of your Nintendo switch in the spare ram, these are used to perform some special tasks and functions which give a better user experience, such as allowing you to use controllers from other consoles, or FTP to your switch without opening any homebrew, or disabling the annoying SuperNag! The possibility are only limited by the devs ability/imagination, and of course the little free ram which is available to use for this function XD So lets get stuck into it! There is a video linked below for a visual explanation, or a written tutorial below that for those who prefer to read or cannot watch the video! Written TUT: What you will need: - An exploitable Nintendo Switch running Atlas/Kosmos CFW - A computer or device which can access your switch's SD card, and which has a text editor - A good text editor (i HIGHLY recommend notepad++ as it works on many different platforms and it amazing... You can download it here - https://notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/) - The SYS-Module you want to install - A way to enter RCM Step 1: Make sure you meet the above requirements. Step 2: Power down your switch and remove the SD card Step 3: Place the SD card in the device you are using to complete this tutorial Step 4: You will need to copy the SYS-Module into the appropriate directory which is in either of the following (/atmosphere/titles/) and (/atmosphere/contents/) If the module is compiled, it will come in a folder with a string of numbers and letters, you must place the folder with the numbers/letters into the previously stated directories. Once copied, open the folder with the random numbers and leters (for both contents and titles) and make sure that that there is a folder in there and a file called "exefs.nsp" if the .nsp file is names something else, make sure you rename it to "exefs.nsp"! Step 5: Copy the name of the folder with the letters and numbers, keep this on your clip board we will need it shortly Step 6: Go back to the root of the SD card and navigate to the following directory - /switch/kosmostoolbox/ - In here, you will see a file "Config.json" you will need to edit this. If you are using Notepad++ just right click and open with Notepad++ Step 7: Copy the last entry in the document, and paste it below to duplicate it. Then add a commer to the end of the previous entry to signify that there is another entry after that one. It will be something like the below extract From this To this Step 8: Change the details to match those of the module you are installing. For example: - "name" should be how you want it to appear in the toolbox. - "tid" is the title ID i had you copy earlier from the folder with letters and numbers which we placed in (/atmosphere/titles/) and (/atmosphere/contents/) - If you do not know if the module required reboot, set that to true to be safe! Step 9: Save the edited file and safely eject the SD and place it back into the switch. Step 10: Boot into RCM and then into the atlas/Kosmos CFW Step 11: Open the Homebrew Browser and then open "Kosmos Toolbox" Step 12: Open "Background services" and then you should see your module there. If you cannot see your module, you may need to repeat the process again. Step 13: Profit? Hope it all worked out for you. If you have any issues, please drop me a comment down below! Goodluck everyone!
Hi all! Welcome to another new TUT! It is important to backup your Nintendo Switch Nand every now and again, or when installing risky home-brew or upgrading or downgrading firmware and such. The reason why is because a backup of your Nand is like taking a snapshot of your switch's state, so if you brick it in the future, or happen to cop supernag (i have a tutorial on getting rid of this on the way by the way!) you can easily restore an old backup and be on your way! There is no hardware required apart from an SD card which is more than 32GB, so i recommend a 64GB sd card! If you are interested in learning how to do this, there is a video below for visual explanation and written TUT below that! Written TUT: Requirements: - 64GB SD card or larger - Switch which can run the tegra exploit and running a CFW (atlas kosmos is recommended as it is made by the same people who make the hekate payload) - A way to push the hekate payload to your switch Step 1: You must ensure you meet the requirements above Step 2: Reboot your switch into the RCM mode Step 3: Push the Hekate Payload Step 4a: If you have kosmos/atlas installed, you can navigate to tools and then backup using the touch screen Step 4b: If you do not have kosmos/atlas installed you will have to use the volume and power buttons to navigate to tools and then backup Step 5: Backup eMMC Boot0 and Boot1 Step 6: Backup eMMC RAW GPP Step 7: When this is complete, you can turn off the switch and eject your SD card. Step 8: Plug the SD card into the PC and you will notice a "Backup" folder on the root Step 9: Place this somewhere safe on your PC Step 10: Profit? That's it folks! Hope you all have fun and safe modding Let me know if you have any questions and i will be more than happy to help!
