That's how you reset your NAND on the Switch?

Mount /system in hacdiskmount

in "save" delete all except 8000000000000120
in saveMeta delete all except 8000000000000120
if anything in Contents/placehld, delete all in placehld also.


From here. You have to use Windows to use HacDiskMount. If they released the source, then I might be able to run it in Linux.

You can also use ChoiDujourNX. That runs on the Switch, but you have to delete all your tickets before doing the factory reset in ChoiDujourNX.

Need to clean my internal NAND, so I can maybe sell it. Or go online and not get banned. Unless, they add checks to see if you have a hidden EmuNAND partition on your micro SD card, then you'll have to use a different micro SD card with the sysNAND.

Can you use HacDiskMount to backup your NAND?

Backing my EmuNAND up, don't have a recent backup of that.

You don't need anything else to use HacDiskMount? Thought you did.

You might not need HacDiskMount. It'll show up as USB drive, you use memloader, the description on their site doesn't do it justice.

Parses ini files from microsd root and loads/decompresses/boots the appropriate binaries on the AArch64 CPU of the Nintendo Switch.

Doesn't mention anything about making it show up as a USB drive. There's apparently a sample folder in it.

And from the sound of it, it's super slow. Is it as slow as backing up with some other payload? Well, except, you need a working backup, cause it can cause it not to boot anymore.

Backing my NAND up with SX OS.

Does backing up to a FAT32 card take longer?

The backup finished. Now I have to copy the backup files to my computer.

Which one is System? I'm lazy, I'll just use the Windows program. Don't know the filesystem, and to lazy to look it up.

The Linux program I found is a joke, no capital I, or a ' in I'm.

Looks like my only option is to restore a clean NAND, or hope the Linux program doesn't screw my Switch up. Switching it to the VM doesn't work.

Where do I get this so called "tweak" key? The instructions make it sound like you have to modify the file, so it can find the keys. But none of them say anything about "tweak". Horrible documentation, just like their grammar.

ninfs is what you want. No need for a special key file, just the one from biskeydump.

For the "file" enter the /dev/ name of the Switch.

sudo mount '/mnt/switch/SYSTEM.img' /mnt/switch_system

It actually mounted it. Make sure you allow writing, otherwise you can't delete anything.

And it's reset.
