    atmosphere.

    Another day, another June 15th - @SciresM and his team has just released version 0.8.6 of his Custom Firmware for the Nintendo Switch!

    The update fixes a rather well-known issue occurring in Exosphère when overclocking the CPU, so now the system should no longer crash if you use tools such as Freebird or sys-clk with all the due precautions, as well as a plethora of other minor or lesser known ones (with another smaller yet notable fix bringing back compatibility with firmware 1.0.0). There are also a few other important changes: a couple of improvements have been made to the cheat sysmodule allowing users to create more complex cheats - see the changelog for more in-detail explaination - and cheat toggles are now loaded/saved to a text file when opening/closing a game, the Homebrew Launcher is now accessed by holding down R and opening the Album or any installed game (instead of opening the Album without holding R) and a few functions have been added for homebrew developers to let their applications use web applets.

    As usual, most of the previously mentioned features' behaivor can be customized by changing INI values, however due to HBL's new launching method the hbl_config!title_id=app setting has been deprecated and will be removed starting from Atmosphère version 0.9.0.

    The full changelog can be seen below:

    No doubt changing how to access the homebrew launcher will make it harder for little kids to do irreperable harm to the system

    Makes sense to have the vanilla album accessed in this way, and the homebrew launcher behind a novel keypress

    Opening the homebrew channel while holding R at album icon will grant full RAM access?


    EDIT
    I got a system crash while trying to load an N64 ROM on Retroarch, so i think the answer is= NO.

    Do you get full memory if you hold R + album? Or does R + installed game do that?

    Totally agree, especially the amount of accidental screenshot's myself and friends take when games get pretty heated.

    Applets will always be restricted RAM-wise.
    As you've already figure out, you need to launch HBL with a title for full RAM access.

    What about "General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience."?

    Seems to break sigpatches on some titles. Some launch, others just return an error message when launched.

    XCI to NSP conversions are the ones that work fine.

    Titles that I have made with NRO2NSP work fine, also, but some of my cart dumps don't. Odd.

    Quite a lovely feature that they ironically stole from SX OS.

    Basically Atmosphere was originally supposed to be released on June 15, but was released much much later

    Jokingly now every update also releases on June 15

    I don't know what the issue is, but I updated to 0.8.6 and couldn't install various games via Goldleaf (USB). But then went back to 0.8.5 and I was able to install games without issues.

    I also tried to install using hbg (from SD in File Browser) and could not install.

    Could be a compatibility issue, but I woudn't know how to test it.

    It's apparently an issue with the signature patches.
