Something weird happened to my switch. Earlier today I turned on my switch from sleep mode while it was running SX OS and turned it off completely to run some physical media on my switch. Thing is....it would not boot for anything. 3 hours of trying to boot the thing I decided to connect it to the pc and try something....I used tegrarcm to boot hekate and it did. I was using hekate to restart the switch and it would not work neither trying to boot it after hekate powered the switch off. It was fully charged and it is still running when I boot it from hekate with tegrarcm. Think SX OS screw it up?

I just uninstalled Autorcm and it fixed the booting issue

well, sounds to me like everything was working as intended. You apparently just didn't know what AutoRCM is or does.

Hint: With AutoRCM installed, the switch won't boot without a payload.

The payload is inside the sx os pro dongle, correct? shouldn't it have still loaded with the dongle installed on the switch?

First of all, you never mentioned you used the SX Pro dongle.

The dongle will only inject the payload if its capacitors are charged. The fact that your switch didn't boot tells me your dongle wasn't charged.

Hint 2.0: It would also auto boot after like 15 secs after powering it off.
when autoRCM is installed, it will always boot into RCM. It will never boot into Horizon without a payload.

I forgot about the dongle not being charged. That must be it since it's working now.

    assembly is actually great, gets you to run everything about 80% faster than C massaged code
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly

    llshit points as usual you make. Not only because you have no idea what you're talking about, but also because there is proof (both i've seen and maintained) in regards to C and hand-written assembler code, and the speed gain is simply over half the framerate.
