Install games using Split XCI files? (2)

Hello. Pretty much a noob here when it comes to hacking switch. Anyway, I trying to install games on the switch that i already purchase. I tried with Pokemon Sword, and Now i am trying with Animal Crossing. I use Atmosphere latest version supporting 9.2. I used NXdumptool to download the file and I was told to use FAT32 to install games. 64GB. It split into 2 files one that has 4 GB and the other with 2GB. I When i try to install iit into lithium it doesn't work. I was told That Atmoshpere doesn't support XCI and it has to be in one file? And so I have to coverted to NSP file? I tried using 4nxi and It could only do the $GB Xci but not the other file. I also tried n1dus as well, but I couldn't fin the nro file to put into the sd file. So I am very lost on what to do. Any help would be appeicated.Hopefully i put this in the right place.

You can install it over USB with TInfoil. Also, there is a way to make the Switch see it as a single file by putting all the parts in a folder, and marking the folder as "archive", they need to be named in a certain way though, there are splitting tools that do this for you, I'm not sure if nxdumptool already names them the correct way.

Hello. I also have tinfoil install from this site
https://tinfoil.io/Download

I also install the nut server. Don’t know who to use it?
However when I try to even launch it, it just give me a back screen. Is there a step by step process on how to do this?

Finally got to install a game.
had to merge the file using xci cutter, then divide it using dividnsp, archiving the file and putting it into tinfoil for it to work,

Wait, it takes a while to start up and show the GUI.
