So, it's my understanding that, once Atmosphere is complete, it'll allow us to access everything on the system, we won't have to mess with jigs anymore, and everything will be sunshine and rainbows as far as the original Switch model is concerned (assuming there will be a second model of the Switch that'll feature substantial differences). At least, that's what "patching the system to have access and control over everything" implied to me in one comment I saw on this forum here.
The reason I ask is because, to be honest, I'm not in high school with no responsibilities anymore. I've got a job, bills to pay, money to save, college classes to go to, and, unfortunately, all of this can leave one quite exhausted, especially that part about college, and trying to fit in free time to do stuff can be very frustrating. Let me put it like this: in between trying to follow every update, every instruction in regards to trying to get full RAM access via that guide that natinusala put out, I am just getting burnt out on modding my Switch, especially when I have an ODroid XU4 that can run everything and more than what the Switch can offer in terms of retro game emulation (and homebrew coming soon with THERA 3.0, don't think it's in all caps like that, but I'm off the cuff here), and a phone that, when paired with my SFC30, can actually play DC games just fine on the go (really surprised, and it's not like I bought my phone for emulation to begin with). If my attempts to get the RAM access were successful, I might not be posting this here, but after one afternoon spent trying to run N64 games as a test to see if the full RAM access worked, I didn't get anywhere. From all of my attempts to get it to work, my hacked Switch now goes into RCM mode when it goes to sleep, which ruined the main thing I loved about the new Atmosphere update - the removal of the need to constantly use the exploit discovered by Fusee Gelee to get into CFW to play games that don't have a hope of ever coming to a system as convenient and as portable as the Switch, IMHO and experience. In between constant updates, the duplicate programs that kept showing up on my Switch from the many updates everything required, and just the trouble involved, I think I'm going to put hacking my dummy Switch until the scene here matures some more and some things are easier to pull off than they are right now. Because I can say that I can't remember where I started, and that in between everything that I want to do, and all of the struggles of life and the time it takes to do everything, I kind of wish I could just wipe the slate clean and start over with hacking the Switch with the knowledge I have now of how everything works, the whole structure of what program to use for this task, what to do if this problem comes up, how to make sure RA saves the game correctly, the whole package.
I'm not mad at any devs or any ridiculous nonsense like that. If anything, what SciresM, natinusala, mx4w, and others are doing is laying the groundwork for a paradigm shift of a system that, when it was confirmed what it was, filled a hole in my gaming life that I've been wanting filled for a long time: a portable system that could play the same games as on the TV, with the power of a seventh generation console. While the Switch obviously can't run every game up to that point I could imagine given all of the complexities for every individual game, the fact that it can run games up to the last generation that I could really sink my time and energy into gaming before having to become an adult with responsibilities is something I didn't think would be happening anytime soon. Then again, I never thought that a system like the UDOO Bolt V8 would be so capable of packing so much power in such a small package that I can't wait to see what the future holds on that front, ESPECIALLY when it can run RPCS3 and maybe Orbital, if anything of note comes from that other than a Command Prompt window (which isn't insignifcant, of course!...for anyone that has any idea about how difficult it is to get a computer together from a financial viewpoint to emulate a system that has to do complex calculations to run a system that the CPU wasn't made to normally run without some translation work, which certainly doesn't help anyone who just wants a working computer again and is hoping that this next setup will actually last and not have a ROG ASUS motherboard fuck up on him *glares violently at ASUS with fangs ready*).
I rambled a lot here, but I just wanted to kind of let it all out as I'm kind of frustrated with a lot of things in my life right now when I want to be on top of the world by having everything that I've always wanted. Unfortunately, the main center piece of what I want (a desktop PC with a VERY good CPU and GPU in comparison to most of the modern builds out there) just isn't working right now, so my college work hasn't been as nice and relaxing to work on. It just isn't the same to use a laptop as opposed to a wireless mouse/mechanical KB in your lap combo, you know?
