4IFIR MOD v0.3
UNLEASH THE TRUE POTENTIAL OF YOUR CONSOLE 2397/1536/2131 MHz
If Mark Cerny worked in NINTENDO and did hard drugs, the Switch would be just like that

According to popular requests from users of 4PDA and GBATemp, I made a modification designed to TRUE overclocking Nintendo Switch.
P.s. Sorry for my English, i am from RUS

This mod is intended for those who really want to squeeze the most out of their console, but at the same time have not mastered the independent development of half a hundred terms, and are not ready to spend tens of hours on shamanism of components scattered across the Internet - all kinds of relevance. On the good, this assembly should not have existed, since the high threshold for entering the topic was a natural barrier for inexperienced users, protecting them from self-harm. By installing a modification without theoretical training, you relieve the author of responsibility for any possible consequences, including irreversible damage to the components of the device, and assume the risks. If something goes wrong, I will not take care of the consequences for you. You knew what you were doing and that is the price of the time you saved.
Mariko, HOS 13.2.0 | Atmosphère 1.2.5 | Reading the warning.
Grab necessary patches from the repo, then compile sys-clk, ReverseNX-RT, hekate and Atmosphere (or loader only) with devkitpro, then defeat Kratos. Just extract 4IFIR.zip to the root of Switch SD, with using external card reader. Turn on your console. Enjoy the result.
Try fix.
Try another fix.
Have you read the instructions carefully?
Are you sure?
Where was the memory card when the mod was unpacked?
What was your next action after unpacking?
Did the instructions mention a reboot? After unpacking the contents of the archive, the console should have been turned on.
That's it. Try repeating the installation process, this time following the instructions verbatim.
  • Overclocking up to 2397 Mhz for the CPU, 1536 Mhz for the GPU, 2131 Mhz for the RAM (the exact ceiling is different for each console).
  • Automatic overvolting.
  • Unlimited video recording in all games.
  • Wireless video streaming with increased bitrate, 60 frames per second, to external monitors - almost without delays.
  • Dock mode emulation.
  • Accelerated charging.
  • Reducing the current threshold for the Official Charger.
  • Drastic reduction of cooling system noise.
  • Overlay with FPS and system metrics.
  • Over-the-screen menu for on-the-fly control of the listed features.
  • Background FTP server.
  • Necessary for the joint work of all of the above are system modules.

Running this is at the end users own risk.
This and any homebrew that changes operation within a handheld/console has the potential to damage the unit.

Thanks! Looking forward to trying this tonight. Looks interesting. But what if no I don't want my Switch running a high CPU speed for a simple 2D game? Is there a toggle to turn this off, or does it reduce CPU clock automatically based on CPU load?

What is the default loader.kip, Micron or Hynix? I can see in Hekate I have Micron RAM.

Are the included apps unmodified from source? Maybe put together a package of just the configs and instructions for installing the original open source packages.

Not that’s there’s any reason to doubt compiled code from a new user on their first post…

PS: Sweet photo man. Is one of them you?

better use this if you want max overclock : https://github.com/KazushiMe/Switch-OC-Suite

“Build
Grab necessary patches from the repo, then compile sys-clk, ReverseNX-RT, hekate and Atmosphere (or loader only) with devkitpro.”

Now that’s what I’m talking about!

“Mariko Only“

Bummer

I wonder if OP package is Mariko only as well…seems pretty similar.

a lot of this is extremely unnecessary and unsafe especially turning down fan speed with an overclock

Correct. The modification is mostly based on customized sources of Switch-OC-Suite, Atmosphere (and other projects). I will add links and credentials to all used community stuff later.

The main idea of the modification is to give beginners the opportunity to touch the delights of overclocking. As simple as possible, including everything you need. Just unpack and use.

If you are an advanced user, then of course it is better for you not to rely on ready-made assemblies, but to assemble the necessary components yourself.

Mostly. But some of them was modified. Components from modification was tested several months before release in public. Including fan curve mod.

I mostly known on "that weird Russian forum" as Cooler3D.
I also plan to bring developments and modifications from my colleagues to GBAmp to make it easier for the English speaking community to have access to them.

I completely forgot that this meme is local to Russia. Its gist is that you are out of luck. In this case, we are talking about the fact that most likely the user has a memory from Hynix.

You can set freqs for any game, just open Tesla overlay, and try to find optimal clock speeds for you. Micron consoles must work fine with mod+first fix. Scheduler (Governor) for automatic freqs adjusting under the development.

Thanks. Like the other people that posted, I don't want to copy the whole archive to my SD, I tried that and it got stuck on boot at the Nintendo Logo. I reverted the changes. Then I tried KazushiMe files and it worked. Now I will find the files that are different in yours compared to KazushiMe and I will copy them to my SD card.

Thanks!
