    You ask this...

    ...but you answer the question by yourself. Or whatever you mean with "boot atmosphere on android". Its a custom firmware for the switch. And not for any android devices. The only you can do with an android powered device is (like you already wrote) sending a payload to the console. Not more or less. Or buy a dongle to inject the payloads. Or if you have skillful hands, solder a modchip into the console.

    Currently there is no way to inject Atmosphere entirely as a payload.
    Currently the only way is to put the required Atmosphere files on the SD card of the Switch and inject the primary payload with something like Rekado. The primary payload will load the required files from the SD card.

    And this will never happen. Fusée Gelée is a bootrom exploit. And a bootrom is Read Only Memory. We can't write the payloads to it.

    But the SD card is writable...

    NXLoader 2.0 will support full CFW installation from Android.

    But the sd card has nothing to do with fusée gelée. It isn't like on the 3ds with b9s.

    You can install at Android's recovery mode -> reboot to bootloader to take you to Hekate/payload. I installed it in mine to go back and forth and I rarely use my phone to push payload when it crashes.
    You can download it at xda :)

    That makes no sense...holy cow. You can't install nintendo switch stuff to any android devices. Or whatever you mean with this statement.

    @BaamAlex oops.. I just realized that he's talking about Android devices and not the Android version on switch (Lineage OS).
    Yeah my post makes no sense then lol

    I don't exactly understand your question but yes, you can send payloads via android. You can send the hekate payload as well as various others via an app (Rekado, RCM Loader) or via Web Fusée Launcher (look it up on GBAtemp). Hekate is used for chain loading atmosphere.
