    Hekate is fully working. Atmosphere not, while trying to run it, I have that communicate "Your console has non-exFAT firmware installed, but your SD card is formatted as exFAT"

    I don't want to use Fat32, because I want to run files bigger than 4GB

    What do you need to run that is larger than 4gb?

    Let me reword this. Switch games above 4gb are split into 4gb or smaller parts. Even if they have an asset above 4gb, it'll be split into 4gb files. It is highly recommended to not use exfat.

    Reflash 11.0.1 firmware file with exfat support if you want to use exfat.

    Use Daybreak, keep in mind 11.0.1 doesn't support sx os, 11.0.0 does.

    If you have any intention of running homebrew, use fat32.

    Can you tell me some advantages of that? Why Fat32 is better than exFAT?

    exfat has been known to corrupt cards.

    That I did not know. Thanks for an advice. I would like to share, that I have installed the same firmware but with exFat drivers. That was fast and easy.

    I think the corruption is caused by Nintendo's own drivers. @Hayato213 told me to use fat32 as well, and I'm legit. I've never had a problem with any game. games are split on the card. I don't know about if using sx os and an hdd though. I know very little about the actual hacking aspect of the switch.

    Problem with exfat it has no journaling, so if there is anything interruption during data being written there is a chance of file corruption.
