    Tutorial Gaming Hardware Hacking Homebrew 4IFIR MOD: The simplest way to overclock | CPU 2397 MHz GPU 1536 MHz RAM 2131 MHz

    By "goes to shit" I mean you won't get anything out of it, though iirc it does hang at some point. It'll say it's running at x freq, will consume the appropriate amount of power, but won't perform any better or anything. Last time I benchmarked the CPU in Linux, 2193 and 2295 performed almost...

    Hacking Atmosphere-NX - Custom Firmware in development by SciresM

    I'd guess whoever that is probably just saw he hasn't pushed any ams commits in like two months and assumed he's leaving, and contrary to popular belief ams dev isn't the only thing scires does with his life.

    Tutorial Gaming Hardware Hacking Homebrew 4IFIR MOD: The simplest way to overclock | CPU 2397 MHz GPU 1536 MHz RAM 2131 MHz

    On Erista, not very, everything goes to shit after 2GHz or so on the CPU and probably on GPU after a similar overclock (didn't play around with it nearly as much because I'm not a complete dumbass). With "goes to shit" meaning you just get exponentially higher power draw with little to no impact...

    High clocks like this would damage Erista hw (and potentially mariko hw, a lot is still untested/unknown there), you wouldn't want to use them.

    Tutorial [PSA][Tutorial] HWFLY chips will brick your OLED. Here is how to avoid it

    If you were to boot without an sd card and it survives, then you do boot with an sd card, it wouldn't linger yeah

    Tutorial [PSA][Tutorial] HWFLY chips will brick your OLED. Here is how to avoid it

    Also btw I took a look at the sdloader payload that does the misconfiguration, it seems to only run the code to route 5v wherever if it fails to load a payload off the sd card, so it's not as big of an issue as it initially seemed (still should probably avoid using it though). (edit...

    Tutorial [PSA][Tutorial] HWFLY chips will brick your OLED. Here is how to avoid it

    The modchip writes it's own payload and bct to the eMMC then glitches the pubkey hash check then the bootrom runs that payload as if it were Ns bootloader, then with spacecraft it either chainloads another payload or displays it's rocket thingy. That payload it writes to the eMMC is what does...

    Tutorial [PSA][Tutorial] HWFLY chips will brick your OLED. Here is how to avoid it

    I’d guess the modchip would just overwrite the payload again if you messed with it.

    I'd be deeply surprised if he was planning on leaving anytime soon. Curious where these rumors come from.

    It's very low risk (on my console I don't even need to overvolt or any of that fun shit for the freq I use) which is why it's the only thing I use my patches for.

    Tutorial Gaming Hardware Hacking Homebrew 4IFIR MOD: The simplest way to overclock | CPU 2397 MHz GPU 1536 MHz RAM 2131 MHz

    Sometime in 2019 (iirc in 7.0?) Nintendo added support for boosting the CPU clock to 1785MHz while reducing the GPU clock to 76MHz to help improve load time that devs can use if they wish to do so. I just patch the PerformanceConfigurations used by that to set 1989 instead of 1785

    Tutorial Gaming Hardware Hacking Homebrew 4IFIR MOD: The simplest way to overclock | CPU 2397 MHz GPU 1536 MHz RAM 2131 MHz

    I've tested it numerous times over the past two years. Each time giving the same results, high power draw, high temps, etc, it's even unpleasant at idle iirc. If you actually push it (you probably aren't, not much can take advantage of these speeds), I don't even think it's sustainable in...

    If people wish to experiment with stuff to see how far shit can be pushed, I'm all for it, that's what I originally wrote and distributed the patches for. The problem here is this user is distributing and advertising precompiled builds of these patches for more "normal" use, which they were...
