    I noticed a pretty important bug, not sure if its already known but is kinda significant

    So I installed autorcm from the launcher and then went into hekate and booted stock firmware, so far so good. The problem comes when I turn the system off from the stock firmware... it actually does not goes off, just goes into rcm mode (i know it because after power off I just plug my usb and it loads the payload)

    This can easily result in a full drain of the battery if you dont get to notice, could anyone please look into it?

    It is a known issue with anykind of AutoRCM, you can search other threads about it. In your case, after powering off via OFW, press power button for 14 sec to make sure.

    Hey guys, I've backed up my raw nand, but it is in separate files. How do I merge them?
    I have read the first post, and says I should use my fav cmd/app, but I have no clue how to do that.
    a little more explanation would be appreciated

    thank you.

    CTCaer has scripts in the main post as well as github that will merge for you. Look around, you'll find them!

    Is there a safe way to cancel a user emmc dump?
    I realized right after starting it that the raw dump included it already, and I don't want to dump user too if I don't need it.

    I got one doubt I can`t find a solution anywhere. Let`s say I got autoRCM mode, when the console is on RCM, can I swap SD cards? Or it isn`t safe. Can somebody tell me if it`s possible to do that? I got two main SD cards and it`s a pain to swap them, so if it`s possible on RCM mode with auto enabled, that should be great.

    There's a no safe way. I may add one in the future (like pressing VOL up and down).
    The only way currently is to force shut down the console. After that you need to check the sd card for errors on a PC, before using it again.

    Yes. In RCM/AutoRCM and in hekate's menu the sd card is unmounted and powered down.

    Hey
    @CTCaer

    I hope it's not written somewhere.

    I did a Nand backup and I was somehow so stupid to delete my old profile with my save games.
    The nand backup is on 3.2 and I'm now on 5. something(i think the latest)
    Is it possible to restore the backup and get my savegames back?
    Or will i brick i because of the different versions?

    If you don't know how to extract savegames from nand backups, here's another way to do it:
    • Backup your current state (5.X.X) - rawnand.bin AND boot0/1
    • Restore your old 3.0.2 rawnand.bin AND boot0/1
    • Backup your savegames through Checkpoint
    • Restore the 5.X.X backup
    • Restore the savegames through Checkpoint
    • Win

    Thanks for your answer!
    So it's possible to get the savegames straight from the backup?
    I will check it out if you got any ressources and like to share it, would be nice, if not it's ok :)

    If I made a backup of only the SYSTEM partition how do I extract the contents? Do those partial backups also use the bis keys?

    You need a lot of time and a know how to for playing with hactool.

    Yeah they need it. They are 1:1 copies of these partitions.

    While the sentiment is appreciated, posting the word "mod" doesn't really help or alert any mods. What you can do is report the first post and say something along the lines of requesting it to be pinned. Even then, I don't believe a mod will do that unless the OP himself requests permission first.

    gonna do that, the opening Post with all the explanation having there is a wonderfull example for having a start in the switch-homebrew area since you need a good payload to even get there.

    if its ok for @CTCaer ^^

    I made a nand backup about a week ago and then yesterday when I woke up my switch was in a bootloop. I no longer can get hekate to boot anymore while I have a sd card inserted and then any features that touch the sd card just freeze or dont work. I can't restore my nand since I can't boot hekate.

    I've tried multiple sd cards none work, I've tested my cards they seem fine. I've also never ran sx os before but I tried to boot the loader as a test and it booted just fine with a sd card. Idk what to do anymore help would be appreciated.

    I was on version 3.1 and I had made no other modifications ever except nand backups

    Specify "bootloop"?
    Also: have you messed with any of your boot partitions?
    Try to use memloader and restore your backup via HacDiskMount.

    I haven't messed with anything I've ran hekate a couple times to make nand back ups.

    The last backup was on hekate 3.1
    Is restoring via hacdiskmount pretty straight forward?
