How to verify dumps


You can verify title dumps via two methods:


PC Method

What you'll need:

Steps:

  1. Create a folder named NxFileViewer and extract NxFileViewer_x64.zip inside of it.
  2. Place prod.keys (your device keys) inside of the NxFileViewer folder.
  3. Launch NxFileViewer.exe.
  4. Drag and drop your desired dump into NxFileViewer.
    • NxFileViewer supports the following formats:
      • XCI
      • NSP
      • NSZ
      • XCZ
  5. In the Integrity window, press the ▶ button to check the Signature and Hash of the file.
  6. If you get a Valid message for both Signature and Hash, then the file is proper, however if you do get an Invalid message, then the file is improper.


Switch Method

What you'll need:

Steps:

  1. Connect your device to your PC.
  2. On your Switch, access the homebrew menu and launch DBI.
    • There are two methods you can use to access the homebrew menu:
      • Hold R and click on a title in your home menu (Recommended).

  8. If you receive a message within DBI that says [SIGNATURE: Invalid] then the dump is improper.
    Otherwise if DBI displays the message [OK] then the dump is proper.
