    I have just transitioned from using ReiNX to Atmosphere. I noticed that even after using a new micro-SD Card (from 128Gb to 256Gb), the icons for the games I had installed on my old micro-SD Card appears on the system still but will not run.

    Question is, where in my old micro-SD Card are the files for the installed games located which I will use to transition to this newer, bigger-capacity micro-SD Card? Thereby, saving me the time of having to re-install every game.

    All the content you're looking for should be in the Nintendo folder on the root of your old SD.
    Copy that folder over to your new SD card, then grab the necessary patches from here and extract them to the root of your SD to run installed NSPs.

    I followed the instruction as instructed, but I am still getting the same error that I used to: as if the files for the games are not in the "Nintendo" folder.

    So if any homebrew isn't updated it won't ever work?

    Mostly the case if there's a new firmware introduced into the system.

    It doesn't even matter since there is no known exploit for your firmware so might as well get an unpatched unit from eBay or something.

    I’m on 9.0.4 and Smash Ultimate, Astral Chain, and other games lag pretty badly in docked mode :/

    Is this a known problem?

    Somehow I got stuck in handheld mode clocks

    You need es patches if you are referring to pirated content

    Is that a concern still if I used the latest Kosmos package?

    Right now, it's the disparity between the two micro-SD Cards' file system formatting that is the angle I'm seeing it at, which I was not initially sure until recently. My old micro-SD Card is formatted to ExFAT whereas the new one is in FAT32. I probably would not be able to reformat the latter to ExFAT until I made the update to firmware 9.0.0.

    if you do a proper copy, SD card format changing won't make a difference. I know because I just recently went from exFat to Fat32 no problem. But if you are running unofficial installed titles, you will need es patches to make them work. I'm fairly certain ReiNX automatically includes them, and atmosphere doesn't, which would be why going from ReiNX to Atmosphere would cause that problem if those titles are "unofficial". These are the patches you'll want: https://github.com/Joonie86/hekate/releases

    So, I did find out that the issue is indeed in the type of file system itself. As the FAT32 format could not take any file larger than 4Gb, the Nintendo folder I copied over to it is literally incomplete. Reformatting the micro-SD Card to ExFAT addressed it for me.

    What would I need to do to switch from sxos 2.8 to atmosphere?

    Just download Atmosphere and the patches then put them on your SD card.

    I tried it earlier on Kosmos/Atmosphere 0.9.4, firmware 8.1.0. Worked just fine.
