AIO-switch-updater

93691188-7833f000-fad1-11ea-866d-42e19be54425.jpg

A Nintendo Switch homebrew app download and update CFWs, sigpatches, FWs and cheat codes. Support Atmosphere, ReiNX and SXOS. Basically I packed my previous homebrew apps into one, polished it and added a GUI.

Download
releases: https://github.com/HamletDuFromage/AIO-switch-updater/releases/
source: https://github.com/HamletDuFromage/AIO-switch-updater

How to install
Copy the `aio-switch-updater/` directory to `/switch/` on your sdcard

Extras
This app can also reboot to specific payload and change software color scheme of Joy-Cons. Additional color profiles can be found in the releases and should be copied to `config/aio-switch-updater/jc_profiles.json`

Description of the features
- Update CFW
Download the most popular Switch CFWs. After downloading the CFW archive, the program will ask you whether you want to override your existing .ini files.

- Update Sigpatches
For Atmosphere. Downloads sigpatches, which are patches required for launching unofficial .NSPs. Both AMS and Hekate+AMS sigpatches are available.

-Download firmwares
Downloads firmare files to /firmware that can then be installed using DayBreak or ChoiDuJour.

- Download cheats
Downloads and extracts daily-updated cheat code. The program will only extract cheat codes for the games you own. By default, this homebrew will overwrite the existing cheats. If you have your own cheat files that you'd like to keep as is, you can turn off cheat updates for specific titles in `Tools->Cheat Menu`.

Extras
- Reboot to specific payload.
- Download payloads to `/bootloader/payloads`.
- Change software color scheme of Joy-Cons. Additional color profiles can be found in the releases and should be copied to `config/aio-switch-updater/jc_profiles.json`.
- View which of your games got cheat codes from the app.

How will this work for those having issues opening up Tinfoil by Blawar? I can sense the support channel being under fire again because tinfoil isnt opening up

My damn, this is a nice software! Do we need the .json file as well?
You need to put the json file in /config/aio-switch-updater/ if you want custom Joy-Con colors. 100% optional though, that's not really the main focus of the app. I should probably go more into details for everything but it's too late right now :^)

Nintendo firmware? If so, just use the firmware download feature in the software I guess. It's the best place I know of to get the firmwares. It fetches them from Darth.

ahh
didnt know it existed
here is a small dilemma i forsee:
i think when updating atmos it requires you to delete all existing atmos files including some inside the switch folder
im wondering if this was taken into account when making the app

99% of the time it's just to overwrite the files


@Homlet Since I'm a paranoid bastard. Do you have a md5 checker for the FW? I can't find anyone in the extraction code. Since Darth post the MD5, maybe it would be good to use it just incase?

You can check in https://github.com/HamletDuFromage/AIO-switch-updater/blob/master/include/constants.hpp, it's getting links from https://hamletdufromage.github.io/switch-fw/firmwares.html which are links scrapped directly from Darth. Then daybreak finds that it is valid firmware. Let me know if you think there should be something more (but I sure hope not lmfao). Btw tomorrow I'll need to push an update deleting the /firmware/ directory before extracting a new firmware, or at least I think it's necessary

Believe me when i say this: i cant express how many times i see people complain atmos is not working and its due to existing files not being completely deleted
scirez can changes file structures for atmos any time. and he has in the past.
anyways, i just want to bring this to OPs attention as a request for a check of this.

I remember him doing this once, and even then there was several versions to transition. I think problems mostly come from sysmodules. I guess I could add a way to cleanly reinstall though

Request for later, a "exosphere.ini" generator. Since I don't think a lot of people know about some of the features and protections from it.
Funnily enough I considered this. Shouldn't be too hard to do either. I'll try to do it tomorrow or the day after tomorrow
