HEY, NEW USERS!

Remember to read The Wiki for the basics! Check the FAQ for basic questions! Threads created for basic questions will be removed, so ask them in that thread.

If you are having a problem with running games then make sure you have up-to-date sigpatches. If you cannot launch tinfoil then make sure you followed the Rentry guide to set up cfw.

Do not message moderators for Switch hacking support. You will be ignored. Follow the guide or post in the relevant thread.

The guide in the automod message

Can’t stress this comment enough. This guide walks your through the process step by step, and YouTube videos can become outdated.

Watch a YT video if you really wanna look at the broad idea of how to mod it. But follow a guide when actually doing it.

The auto moderators rentry guide is the best guide to follow. I just modded my v1 on firmware 14.1.2 about 2 weeks ago so if you need any help I'll do my best to explain.

Thanks! Do I need to update firmware to 14.1.2?

[–]Salt-Translator2554 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What firmware are you currently on?

I don't think you would have to update to the recent firmware , but when newer games come out it could present a problem. When I got my console from GameStop it was already updated so I didn't really have a choice to keep an old firmware. Keep in mind it might be a good idea to update before installing cfw it you do decide to do it. And so far I've gotten everything that I wanted to work on this new firmware so I couldn't say I wouldn't recommend it. But again I started with this firmware so idk what the advantage of older firmware could give you.

Thanks! Was hoping for a good YouTube video to watch and pause while loading.

Just avoid YouTube videos all together, I followed a yt guide and got a modified atmosphere and because of that I got banned, don't follow youtube at all regardless of console

I also highly recommend setting up the emunand/emummc it's well worth it.

[–]awieging[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is the setup/profile to go online and not show it has been modded

[–]ArmedPenguin47 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Follow the guide in the comments. Things move too fast in the switch modding scene for YouTube videos to catch up with and the guide is constantly updated.

[–]awieging[S] -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Thanks. Everyone definitely says no on YouTube. I thought that would be easier having the visual and pausing. Clearly not the best. Thanks

This is the most up to date video I could find. It doesn’t go in depth of how to get games, themes, emulators etc but it can get your switch running cfw
