Linkalho is an homebrew app that will link NNID accounts offline. It links (or unlinks) existing accounts so you won't lose your saves. This app does not create a new account. If you create a new account and want to link it, just re-run the app.
Why do I need this app?
If you never had issues with games/apps failing to launch until you link your Switch user account and you never experienced issues with certain titles stuck in Updating game data or certain official emulators presenting you with nothing else but a black screen instead of the game selection, then you don't need to use this homebrew.
- Place the .nro file in the /switch/linkalho folder of your SDcard.
- Go to the homebrew app and run Linkalho
Reboot to payload
After completing the selected operation, Linkalho will try to find the best way to reboot to an existing payload:
- if the user places a payload file in the application's root (/switch/linkalho/payload.bin)
- if Atmosphere is detected and /atmosphere/reboot_payload.bin exists
- if ReiNX is detected and /ReiNX.bin exists
- if SXOS is detected it will issue a soft-reboot
Link all accounts
- Will link all accounts on the console. If any of the existing accounts is already linked, it will be re-linked. This operation creates a backup in /switch/linkalho/backups
Unlink all accounts
- Will remove all NNID linking from any accounts on the console regardless of the NNIDs being officially linked or not. This operation creates a backup in /switch/linkalho/backups
- Restores any previous state from a backup file. The file must be places in /switch/linkalho/restore/restore.zip This operation creates a backup in /switch/linkalho/backups
Create manual backup
- Will create a backup in /switch/linkalho/backups. All linking and unlinking operations will produce a backup before making changes. You should only use this option if you want to manually create a backup!
