Yes I have setup exosphere.ini and default.txt.

My hekate_ipl.ini:
[config]
autoboot=0
autoboot_list=0
bootwait=3
backlight=100
autohosoff=0
autonogc=1
updater2p=0
bootprotect=0

[Atmosphere CFW]
payload=bootloader/payloads/fusee.bin
icon=bootloader/res/icon_payload.bmp

[Stock SysNAND]
fss0=atmosphere/package3
stock=1
emummc_force_disable=1
icon=bootloader/res/icon_switch.bmp
Just have to make sure you downloaded the same version of fusee.bin as Atmosphere (they are in the same set of GitHub assets, right next to each other) and put it in /bootloader/payloads/ directory.

…also since you have the protection set up please select stock Sysnand option in Hekate launcher during boot up.

Ok, great! Let’s change the line in hekate_ipl.ini here:

From:
[Atmosphere CFW]
payload=bootloader/payloads/fusee.bin
icon=bootloader/res/icon_payload.bmp

To:
[Atmosphere CFW]
fss0=atmosphere/package3
icon=bootloader/res/icon_payload.bmp

and try to boot CFW again…

e: if this doesn’t work I suspect the emunand will need to be recreated. Let’s see though…

  • loaded up my micro SD card in Windows and it suggested scanning and fixing (which I did)
Ouch, doesn't windows just recommend that in general because of the Emunand partition, since one part of the SD card isn't accessible and thus it wants to keep reformatting it, also glad you guys almost fixed it!
Are you sure about that? There is the format dialog, and the check for errors dialog, both of them do different things normally.
