    If you've been keeping up with Atmosphère's development then you probably know its latest stable version has introduced a feature to reboot from Atmosphère into a RCM payload without using a payload injector. You might also remember that the same feature only worked if the console encountered a fatal error or if it was triggered by a homebrew application, as rebooting via the power menu would still send you to either your OFW or RCM depending if you had AutoRCM enabled or not.

    Well, @SciresM had already said back then that this behavior could be changed in the future and it's indeed now possible to do so!
    This new feature is also customizable: you can choose whether to reboot to your own payload, RCM or leave the power menu's reboot function untouched. It should be stressed that the console will not autoboot into CFW after it gets shut down and, of course, you can only make use of this function if you're already running Atmosphère. So like last time, while it's nice that the need to keep a RCM injector with you at all times gets smaller with each commit, you shouldn't say goodbye to your dongles and jigs just yet as this isn't a substitute for a proper warmboot exploit.

    You can see a video of the new feature in action in the following Tweet:


    There are no official stable releases including it at the time of writing, however the commits have been pushed to Atmosphère's GitHub repo so you can clone and compile your own unstable version if you wish to do so (link in the source down below).

    While this isn't the keyless 7.0.0 update some users have been waiting for, it's been said in the same Tweet that the non-byok update is still being worked on and is expected to be released soon.

    that's cool! Can easily switch to different boot options then without a constantly using a jig. Also @RattletraPM good job on reporting stuff! Its well written and definitely looks you can become a actual reporter on this site!

    Yup, and if other CFWs add support for this it'll be an absolute blast! I usually jump between Atmos and ReiNX each once in a while so I just drool at the thought of rebooting into Hekate and switching (no pun intended) between the two without ever going through RCM and moving stuff around on the SD!

    I gues on earth.
    For AutoRCM users, one thing which would be great is that power off would go to shutdown payload which would fully shut down the switch.
    I also hope that we get a reboot to payload from crashes (if that's possible).

    This is cool. It'll probably make AutoRCM and dongles obsolete (mostly).

    Yes, but if you shutdown or crash (that should get implemented tho), you will boo through stock bootloader thus burn fuses.

    Actually, Atmosphere hijacks system crashes since forever and the reboot to payload function has been recently implemented to it as well.

    I know. But reboot to payload from a crash is not yet implemented.

    It looks like the buildbot is having trouble with the last 3 commits

    It's been added in the stable build of Atmosphere 0.8.3 (I'm using Kosmos 11.9 but it's the same thing).

    Haha lol. Ok then. I am still on 8.2.0 and never really looked into it. Just thought that it would be a great feature. And it already exists.
