Not sure if anyone asked this but, is it impossible to play the newer games that require 10.0.4+ on older firmware? I haven’t tested it

I downloaded the software from Eshop and sucked up the nsp by myself, but it says to check if I can play the software and I can’t start it.
How can I get around this?
Lockpick is sucking out title.keys, etc.
I’ve been applying sig patches to the
The nsp etc. downloaded from this site etc. can start with no problem.
We use DeepSea.
Can you tell me how to deal with this, if you don’t mind?

If you have Atmosphere 0.13.0, there’s no issue with it on 10.1.0 Can confirm as I picked up another switch and had to update it to 10.1.0 to get it to see the newer, bigger types of memory cards in order to put CFW on it.

It got me an error note everytime i tried to. I found out, that some of the data on sdsetup didnt get to the root of my sd card, that was the problem… now i have another problem, many of my games arent working anymore, it says that my microsd card is corrupted (like super mario bros smash bros and mario party) other games (like cupheads, grid and marvel ultimate alliance) are still working.. i used the sigpatch installer and still nothings working… how can i fix that??

I followed all the instructions, but I don’t manage to get beyond Hakate. If I select any of the 4 options I can choose at the “Launch” menu, the NS-Atmosphere logo is quickly shown, followed by the Hakate logo and I’m back at the Hakate Main menu.
What can I do to regain access?

Do a google search for “sdsetup” and download the cfw setup files from there if all fails.

hi, what would you recommend doing with a 4.0 switch w/ ams 12.0. should I update both sysnand and emunand? what about efuses and whats the point of downgrading anyway?
sorry for asking so much 🙂

update sysnand and emunand to 10.0.3 (not the latest 10.0.4). I have that set up and can play anything without errors. Note: I just use ams and goldleaf, don’t know about other cfw.
