    Hbloader received a hefty update. Afaik this may not be true anymore. I may be misreading it, though.

    Also, I'm not referring to hblauncher, but the module for loading homebrew through the album app (I think that's what it is and does).

    My thoughts exactly!
    I can't wait for awesome hacks though (preferably Bluetooth compatibility now that we've got more freedom).

    Not gonna lie, I'm so out of the loop, I don't even know what that means or what it entails. Sorry. Even if I had a second Switch to dink around with, I wouldn't know what to use or how, I just don't know anymore.

    I'm trying to follow along. I think I've got it wrong.

    I wouldn't know any difference anyway, the scene is a mess and there's no clear, definitive guide, AFAIK.

    Not sure if this was mentioned but with the Nintendo trust zone thing, does that mean it’s now almost impossible to get banned. Not even sure this can be answered.
    Also I noticed a user mentioned this is like a Nintendo switch emulator on the Nintendo Switch, if that’s the case that it’s built like that, I guess the next update will be emunand support.

    No, there's not. It's one giant, fragmented mess.

    Afaik it just loads the hbl. The album applet is done w/ the titles folder. You can set it to any app(let) you want by changing the TID if im not mistaken.

    No, don't ever assume it's impossible.

    You're more than likely right. I'm unsure why I thought what I did. Trying to read more into it.

    And it's a major factor that unmotivates me to ever wanting to mod my Switch. Why the hell can't it all just be consolidated? Is that too much to ask?
    I don't even want to bother with it right now.

    Do you think I would have the same luck if I were to get one right now from a store like walmart?

    It's only fragmented if you don't know what you want.

    But for most cases, ReiNX is currently more than enough.

    Homebrew/emulators, don't care about "backups" but I still feel it's fragmented. There's no consolidated guides.

    You are here since the start so you know we just need a full release of atmosphere and nothing more.

    Backup loading can then be added to official atmosphere release by any developer out there.

    Raj, Rei and any known Devs can always give us a full customised atmosphere latest release with the magic stuff added.

    I guess atmosphere was always to be like that, something 4 anyone to mod and add any feature easily, we all know it won't ever come with backup loading from SciresM, but that will always be added by other Devs.

    I just need atmosphere with M-SD emunand and nothing more, because then I wait for another modded atmosphere with emunand and backup loading + other features.

    Ps: 1 release of atmosphere push the boundaries of all the others even TX might add M-SD emunand lol...

    Come on, my friend. Even a barely capable console er..."enabler" like myself could do it, you can too.
    Using a friggin' paper clip for a month, one can do wonders.
    Really, there's nothing to it.
    And there's plenty of guides. You don't even have to try. Besides, Retroarch can do everything you need.
    I love my SNES, NES, GB, GBC, GG, SMS, GEN, TG16, SGFX on it. Even those I will never play are there for the awesome

    And yes, I have a few "backups" installed, that get majorly ignored. My daughter for some reason loves Treasure Tracker, and that's the only game I have in use.

    Now, between us that one's around. You hacked your console already and don't want to admit it, right?
    ;)

    So from what I've gathered, this will let us use homebrew safely without Ninty knowing about it, since it stores crash dumps on the SD card and doesn't report them to Ninty.

    Of course the obvious question, does anybody's sig patches work with this?

    For the thing that JUST released TODAY? How about you put your woe-is-me act on hold for a day or two and give people a chance to work with it? Plus at least one person already posted a link to what sounds like a pretty complete guide.

    Wasn't a guide/wiki one of the main goals for 0.7 though?
