  1. Recommended systems: all old units, or 4.1.0 for newer units
  2.  
  3. Regardless of the unit you have, if you are on system version 4.1.0 or lower, you can use warmboot. The hardware exploit works on all system versions, but it only exists in older models. Open the links below to find out if your unit is older or newer.
  4. If you update normally you will burn your eFuses and you won't be able to downgrade, read below to know more. This is relevant to everyone, including owners of old units, because downgrading can give you access to more software exploits (such as warmboot on 4.1.0).

  38. FAQ
  39. Q: How do I hack my Switch?
  40. A: You have two options. Check out Hekate or any of its variations (free, can be used to install .nsp games) and SX (paid, can run .xci files and install .nsp files) in the links above if you wish to know more or if you need a guide. Use devmenu to install DLC .nsp files.
  41.  
  42. Q: Where do I download games?
  43. A: .nsp dumps here, including DLCs and updates: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1tuauOa6NgHx9_mThVRd5yjq-uG31Xz-u
  44. If Google Drive says download limit has been reached, log in a Google account, right click on the file, copy to your drive and download from there.
  45.  
  46. More .nsp and .xci dumps: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vTzD6mUDCHQMEeVRjg5RHAcJttByZK4JI3v47q1OdKmAaCAeVjwo1qy7WoiJI7LH3uR8D5Wk1v38ALK/pubhtml

  48. You can find BigBlueBox .xci dumps here: https://1fichier.com/dir/08K944dE
  49. More .nsp dumps: https://1fichier.com/dir/lsNz8Ce7
  50.  
  51. Another source is Darkumbra (https://darkumbra.net/forums/forum/194-switch), it has many .nsp dumps as direct downloads, but people use adfly and you need to block the site's anti-adblock.
  52.  
  53. Q: Can I get banned from online services?
  54. A: You will get banned if you play online with games you don't own or if you install NSP files.
  55. You can also get banned for doing something stupid, such as using DevMenu to set a custom avatar, which would be impossible for a regular user.
  56. Disabling telemetry (as far as Nintendo lets you do it) is recommended.
  57.  
  58. Q: Is it possible to mod Switch games?
  59. A: You can do so using LayeredFS, a tool to apply mods without altering the actual game.
