    is it possible to load hekate with the atmosphere support files to use dev menu to install nsp files?
    if not, will it be possible soon?

    Could you not use the free version of SX OS?

    It would not work, you need the license.dat file. I tried it without the license and LayeredFS doesn't work at all :(

    Dam. That sucks. The OP will have to wait for SX to be cracked, or hekate to add support.
    and by op, I dont mean your fake op tag :/

    under your desk
    What if you install a .nsp on Hekate LayeredFS then switch to SX OS free version to launch it?

    I believe the free version has sigpatches disabled. Installed titles wouldn't launch.

    No, it will not work, you will need signature patches. Hekate doesnt have those signature patches yet SX OS (the full version) has signature patches.

    Devmenu can run in LayeredFS but you can't install any games because there are no signature patches. (SX OS or SX PRO is the only one that has signature patches currently)

    Ok... Sorry for adding to your comment... The fact that it fails at 100% wasn't in your post. And how do you know that it's the signature patches that aren't allowing the install to complete. Boot yes, but install? Now ... Somewhere else.

    The free version is used solely to have access to homebrew menu that's all

    They actually disabled layeredfs on the free version? lmao
    I never tried using layeredfs or anything before activating mine. That's kinda shitty, but I digress
    -- short answer: No
    -- long answer: No, currently CFW does not have sigchecks disabled. You are not able to install nsp titles with the standard CFW. The "free" version of SX OS has the sigchecks enabled so you need to pay for it to get that feature :\
    Seriously though, I can't wait for standard CFW to have this feature, I'm not a TX fan by any stretch. Locking down freely available layeredfs is pretty funny imo

    Use Hekate dev menu to install nsp? No it fails
    Use Hekate and play via LayeredFS? Yes

    I can confirm with 3 eShop games ive tried, Hollow Knight, Poly Bridge & Enter the Gungeon
    Tried it on SDFiles V5 + Hekate 3.1
    • Download .nsp file and get its unique title key
    • Use hactool to perform the following:
      • hactool -t pfs0 -k keys.txt game.nsp --pfs0dir=extract
    • Find the biggest NCA in the 'extract' folder and then;
      • hactool -k keys.txt --titlekey=CopyPasteKeyHere --exefsdir=exefs --romfsdir=romfs biggest.nca
    • Use your prefered way of patching .npdm file in the exefs folder
    • Transfer to SD card and launch 'Older LayeredFS' firmware option

    At the current time, it does not however it will eventually be implemented due to the multiple possible utilities with signature patching (i.e. installing the homebrew menu)

    i want to try this right now using sonic forces. after you transfer the sd card in your last step, how do you launch the game? i guess my question is, at what point in your tutorial above do we identify and use a donor title.
