    Don't let your calendars decieve you: it may not look like so, but today is actually June 15th! @SciresM and the rest of the team have just pushed yet another update to his Switch Custom Firmware, version 0.8.7, aka the fourteenth official release.

    A good number of bugs were fixed, some related to the fatal sysmodule, others with the loader causing errors while launching specific games, but there are also new features and improvements too: SHA256 is now hardware accelerated (which should bring a performance improvement whenever it's used), a couple of extensions were implemented in smcGetInfo, additional instructions were added to dmnt:cht doubling the number of values that can be stored, better crash detection and reporting is now possible thanks to usermode exception handlers being enabled in Exosphère and, most importantly for end users, a save redirection feature is now available, allowing users to redirect savegames to the SD instead of the NAND.

    This last highlight is completely optional and it needs to be enabled by setting atmosphere!fsmitm_redirect_saves_to_sd to 1 in system_settings.ini. Still, users should be advised that the feature is experimental and should be enabled at their own risk. It's a good idea to back up your saves if you do so!

    On a last note, it should be underlined that save redirection is not emunand, but a separate feature that may work alongside it once the latter gets released.



    As usual, you can read the full changelog below:

    June 15th meme only works when we are EXPECTING an update, when they come out of nowhere with not substancial changes or upgrades.... the meme loses effectiveness.

    Quick question: is New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe one of the titles that didn't launch properly that was fixed? I had it working a month ago with CFW, and since a few days ago I can't get it to run anymore, saying that it's corrupted. I deleted the game, re-downloaded from a difference source, reinstalled and still no dice. This would make sense.

    "Opt-in support was added for redirecting game save files to directories on the SD card." @WerWolv hint hint? ;)

    Nice new feature although I'm fine with backing up saves with Checkpoint every sunday evening. :D
    EmuNAND is now the only missing feature for me from Atmo being the "perfect thing".
    (oh and USB support for things like pPlay and RetroArch but I guess that's a libnx thing?)

    Save backup and restore works out of the box. Just save editing somehow broke with this. Going to look into it soon

    Oh? So a previous version of AMS is causing this? Mario Kart 8 wouldn't also launch for me. Getting rid of the updates made it work!?

    It means I somehow manage to crash the fs service which then takes the whole system down with it. It happens when having save redirection enabled and trying to apply the edits
