    Back when I was doing this i wouldn't really charge it during gameplay, just when I'd put it into sleep(when sleep didnt work) / turned off the wrong way into RCM when I was finished playing. Never did any battery cycling or had to disconnect my battery (considering i can't because my screws are stripped) and still no desync issues. Ive never heard of anyone complain about this issue for AutoRCM except for these couple cases :unsure:

    The thing is sleep mode battery charging still worked as intended because sleep mode in of itself wasn't broken but rather the console could not be woken out of sleep. So theoretically, if you did sufficient charging during this time, any battery de-sync issues could be masked with any charging done during RCM. That's just my guess. If you really want to see for yourself what the de-sync issue looks like, you can try the following (which is what another user did):
    1. nstall AutoRCM and boot into Horizon, disconnecting the Switch from the computer.
    2. Let the Switch battery get to 50% in Horizon.
    3. Completely power off the system.
    4. Plug in the Switch to a power source, which causes it to enter RCM.
    5. Let it sit plugged in and in RCM all day.
    6. Unplug the Switch from the power source and quickly load Horizon.
    7. The battery is at 100%

    So I'm getting some conflicting information.

    Does the Switch charge in RCM mode?

    What happens, for instance, when my Switch dies while in Lakka if I'm using AutoRCM?

    tl;dr Switch will charge in RCM without AutoRCM normally. Switch will charge in AutoRCM much slower. Lakka is now updated to prevent battery mismatches that led to the Switch turning off at around 30%.

    I know battery desync isn't an issue but there is still no battery indicator in Lakka, so sometimes the switch dies. What is the solution for someone whose battery dies and is using autoRCM?

    If your Switch dies while AutoRCM is installed, you can plug it into your computer, and it will trickle-charge enough to enter RCM and load Hekate - CTCaer mod. From there, you can charge it. It's just not the healthiest thing for your battery to let it completely die. Just don't leave your Switch in RCM by mistake, and you're unlikely to have any problems.

    So basically just charge it enough for it to boot into RCM then inject a payload? Could be worse I suppose...

    Is this (or the TX version of this) reversible?

    Both are. They are uninstalled the same way they are installed (you would just press a different button)

    Is there any advantage of using briccmii over TX AutoRCM with SX OS?

    Briccmii can display the number of fuses burnt as well as repair itself after a system update. In terms of functionality, they both boot the console into AutoRCM and can suffer from the same battery drainage issues. However, the solution to dealing with those issues are the same. Either power off from Hekate or the SX OS menu or perform a manual shutdown. Powering off from Horizon (within the Switch) may not actually turn off the console but instead boot it back into RCM.

    Thank you.
    I am planning to update 3.0.1 -> 5.1 without burning fuses. And use SX OS. As far as I understand if I ever accidentally boot into Original firmware it will burn the fuses.
    Did I understand it correctly that with AutoRCM there is 100% no way to boot without injecting SX OS payload. And injecting SX OS payload will save fuses even if I updated to 5.1?

    Correct. As long as you are running SX OS V1.2 or higher, your fuses will not burn when combined with AutoRCM.
