Nintendo just updated the Switch with a useful new feature — namely, you can finally transfer some (though not all) of your game data from your console’s internal memory to the SD card. Turn off your Switch by holding down the power button, scrolling down to Power Options. In order to save software data to a different microSD card, you'll have to insert that microSD card into the console and then redownload the data from Nintendo eShop. Screenshots will be saved to the 'NintendoAlbum' folder on the microSD card. You can transfer screenshots from the microSD card to a computer. The update allows downloaded games to be transferred to an SD card, giving users flexibility and freedom. Previously, Switch owners had few options if their console ran out of storage space.

Kindle Fire is the tablet computer developed by Amazon. However, the capacity is not enough for daily study and entertainment. Luckily, Kindle Fire supports SD cards. In this essay, we will talk about how to move/save data to the SD card in Kindle Fire and how to back up the SD card data.


First post am info system login

Most of book lovers know that Kindle is a series of e-readers designed and marketed by Amazon. While some people may not know that Kindle Fire is an Android-based table computer also developed by Amazon.

Kindle readers do not support SD cards because the capacity is enough for reading e-books, e-magazines and audiobooks.

Kindle Fire, similar with iPad, is the table computer released in 2011. It still directs to reading and studying but also adds more entertainment functions. If the capacity of Kindle Fire is not enough, you can expand it through a SD card.

Notes when shopping SD cards for Kindle Fire:
  • Only recognize Micro SD card in FAT32 and exFAT;
  • Support micro SD cards up to 128GB;
  • Suggest all UHS micro SD cards and Class 10 micro SD cards for optimal performance. Class 2 micro SD cards cannot support playing videos and shooting photos in burst mode.

Part 2: How to Save/Move Kindle Fire Data to SD Card?

It is possible to download and store applications, music, photos and videos straight to the SD card. But you should modify the storage location when you’ve inserted it into the Kindle Fire.
① Slide down the menu and tap [Settings] > [Storage].
② Enable or disable these options:
  • Install Supported Apps on Your SD Card
  • Download Movies and TV Shows to Your SD Card
  • Download Music to Your SD Card
  • Store Photos and Personal Videos on Your SD Card
  • Download Audiobooks to Your SD Card
  • Download Books and Periodicals to Your SD Card

Once you enable these options, they will be saved in the micro SD card. Yet, some Apps can only be installed in the internal storage.

① Tap [Settings] > [Storage].

② If you see the option [Move Apps to SD Card], the pre-installed Apps are allowed to move to the SD card. This process is time-consuming, depending on how large the Apps are.

② Slide the screen from left to right to expand the Menu, and then go to [Settings].

In Music Settings, tap [Download Location] > [SD Card]. After that, the music will be automatically downloaded into the SD card. If you’ve already downloaded music on the device, tap [Transfer All Offline Music] > [Transfer All to SD Card]. Your music will be moved from the internal storage to the SD card.


Part 3: How to Protect Kindle Fire from Data Loss?

Although SD card is convenient, it risks at data loss. Regularly backing up SD card can help you protect it from data loss.
① Tap [Settings] > [Sync Device].

② Enable [Backup and Restore] to save your Fire data to the Cloud.

Of course, the way is affected by the network. If the network runs slowly but the data is large, it will take a longer time to upload the data. Yet, Renee Becca can solve this problem. It can quickly backup data and realize incremental/differential backup.

This guide will show you how to hack your unpatched Nintendo Switch and install Atmosphere custom firmware with Tinfoil + HBG Shop so you can download games directly to your Switch SD card. You will also have access to various homebrew applications such as cheat managers, emulators, offline updates and more.

Huge thanks to JackInTheShop for creating this Atmosphere (sigpatches) + Tinfoil pack.

It is advised that you create a full backup of your Nintendo Switch system before you begin. You will be able to use the backup file to restore your Switch back to a clean, pre-hacked status at any time if anything ever goes wrong.

“The best backup is the one you never need, the worst backup is the one you never made.”

Before you begin, it is strongly advised to Block Nintendo Servers via DNS. This is to prevent your Switch sending information that could lead to a ban as an Internet connection is required to use Tinfoil / HBG Shop.

You should never attempt to play online once you have installed a custom firmware on your Nintendo Switch due to the high likelihood of a ban. If you wish to play online AND have access to homebrew features, you can setup an emulated Switch storage (EmuMMC / EmuNAND) partition on your SD card. This means a copy of your Switch internal storage containing custom firmware can be run directly from the SD card without leaving any files on your actual console.

This will allow you to boot into both custom firmware and the stock firmware on the same Switch, without ‘contaminating’ the console’s internal storage. This is only recommended if you have NEVER used custom firmware on the console before.

If you wish to remove custom firmware and start ‘fresh’, follow this guide on using Haku33 to ‘clean’ your Switch NAND.

It should be noted that there is no known fool-proof way to prevent bans entirely other than not using hacks at all. Going online greatly increases your chances of being banned and the methods detailed here have shown to lower that risk. There have been no known cases of users being banned for using EmuNAND alone, however these methods are prone to human error. Users should take care to keep their SysNAND Stock OS environment as clean as possible, and also to never connect to the Internet with EmuNAND unless Incognito is activated.

Required Downloads:

  • Rufus (Optional)

Unpatched Nintendo Switch

  • Not all Nintendo Switch consoles can be hacked; your Switch must be an earlier model (determined by the serial number) that is vulnerable to the fusee-gelee exploit
  • Visit ismyswitchpatched.com and enter your Switch’s serial number (found on the white strip next to the USB port) to check if your Switch is hackable
  • The serial number can also be found from the Nintendo Switch Home menu in [System Settings] -> [Settings] -> [Serial Information]

Switch Payload Injector (Recommended)

  • USB Dongle that can be used to boot your Switch into Atmosphere without a PC or USB cable
  • RCM Jig Included
  • Compatible with emuMMC / Stock OS Dual Boot for safer online play
  • Add or Update payloads (.bin files) via USB
  • Enter coupon code NOTEGRA for a $5 discount


  • A RCM Jig is required to enter your Switch into RCM mode (Recovery Mode)
  • They are relatively cheap and easy to acquire online

USB-C to USB-A Cable

  • A USB-C to USB-A cable is required to connect your Nintendo Switch to your PC
  • USB-C to USB-C cable can also be used if your computer features a USB-C port

MicroSD Card (128GB or Larger Recommended)

  • An SD card (and reader) is required to install and launch homebrew on your Nintendo Switch
  • Your SD card must be formatted as FAT32 if your Switch does not have the ExFAT driver installed
  • If you are unsure, use FAT32 to avoid errors.
  • The ExFAT driver can be installed manually without updating firmware after successfully hacking the console
  • 128GB or more is recommended for storing games
  • 64GB or larger is required to make a full backup of your Switch so it is highly recommended as a minimum

Wi-Fi Internet Connection

  • An internet connection is required to download games from the HBG Shop

If you are using a new SD card that is formatted to exFAT, it may not be compatible with your Switch without the exFAT update installed. Upon entering an exFAT SD card for the first time, your Switch will display a warning that a system update is required.

Download Games On Sd Card

This system update will update your firmware to the latest version. To prevent this, it is recommended to format your SD card to FAT32 and install the exFAT driver with homebrew later if you wish to do so. FAT32 does carry some limitations such as not being able to store files larger than 4GB, however some users have reported instability and data loss with exFAT SD cards. Many have also found no problems with exFAT but there are many workarounds for the limitations so it is generally recommended to use FAT32.

Windows is unable to format SD cards larger than 32GB to FAT32 so we will be using a well-known portable software tool called Rufus to accomplish this. This will delete all the files on your SD card so create a backup of any files you wish to keep.

  1. Select your MicroSD as the [Device]
  2. Set [Boot selection] to [Non bootable]
  3. Set [Partition scheme] to [MBR]
  4. You may name your SD card with [Volume label]
  5. Set [File system] to [Large FAT32]
  6. Set [Cluster size] to the Default setting
  7. Select [Show advanced format options] and uncheck [Create extended label and icon files]
  8. Select [START] -> [OK] and wait for the process to complete

Congratulations, you’ve now formatted your SD card to FAT32 and can begin hacking your Nintendo Switch

  1. Delete any pre-existing folders named atmosphere, sept and switch from the root of your SD card
    You will not lose any save game data as this is usually stored on the Switch’s internal memory. Album photos and installed games are stored in the /Nintendo/ folder. Create backups of your previous homebrew apps from the /switch/ folder if you wish keep them.
  2. Extract the contents of the It Just Works: Atmosphere .zip file to the root of your SD
  3. Create a folder called payloads on your PC
  4. Copy the fusee-primary.bin to the /payloads/ folder on your PC, this is the payload file that will be pushed from the computer to your Switch to boot into Atmosphere CFW
  5. Insert your SD card into your Switch but do not power it on
  1. Install TegraRCMGui and the APX driver when prompted
    If you are not prompted to install the APX driver, go to the [Settings] tab and click [Install Driver]
  2. Connect your Switch to your PC via USB and ensure it is powered off
  3. Enter RCM on your Nintendo Switch
    1. Insert your RCM Jig into the Right Joycon slot, sliding it all the way down
    2. Hold down the [Vol+] button and press the [Power] button, the Switch will now enter Recovery Mode (RCM) but the screen will stay off
  4. The icon in TegraRCMGui should now read [RCM O.K.]
  5. Select the fusee-primary.bin file from the /payloads/ folder on your computer and click [Inject payload], your Nintendo Switch should now boot into Atmosphere CFW
