    Yes, of course. When my console went to sleep mode, it sent racist slurs to Kim Jong Un. Now he's gonna nuke us all. /s

    Maybe he's active on other places or was hacking others stuff before consoles

    The battery can't desync because of hekate (the menu itself), right?

    Does Lakka have the battery desync during use? Or is it only after going back to Hetake/OFW?

    Lakka uses the internal battery sensor, if I recall correctly, so it will always show the right % left, but horizon keeps what % the battery was before on console's last stop and uses it again at next boot into it, so if you boot into lakka and drain battery between horizon last stop and next launch, the battery will get decalibrated.

    Ok thanks. Should you always charge to 100% before using this battery fix payload?

    No, I used it at 40% and worked perfectly

    I'm sorry, I can't help you with that since it's all new, search on the forum.

    not really getting what the payload seems to be doing, but could constantly resetting this cause an issue in the switch in the long run too?

    like, i feel there has to be a reason why the switch uses this weird backwards way of determining when the battery is full or when its empty (like maybe the battery is never actually charged to true 100% and never decharged to actual 0% but kept between 10 and 90%?) and while this might actually unlock a few additional minutes of battery power, will deteriorate the battery quicker?

    That's true... this payload should be further tested to make sure it doesn't cause any problems...

    Thanks a bunch for this!
    That will really change the game, assuming this code could be implemented into more programs, preventing any future desync.

    Makes me wonder, people have mentioned it causes a clock reset as a side effect. Could this be avoided with some additional code that would set the clock immediately after this?

    Nah. The payload is simply electronically disconnecting the battery (and its management circuit) from the Switch's motherboard.
    This is already a standard safety feature in the vast majority of rechargeable batteries (used to completely disconnect the battery to avoid overcharging/overdischarging), but from the battery cell's perspective, all that's happening is the console powering off completely. It's no different than if you were to unplug it then plug it back in, for instance.

    Unfortunately, there's no easy way to avoid RTC desyncs and disconnects in this situation for three reasons:
    • No freely writeable non-essential non-volatile memory for the RTC value to be written to (that I know of, anyway)
    • No way to determine the time passed between disconnection and restore (the battery stays disconnected until you plug in a USB lead)
    • No way to ensure that the next thing to run on the system will be an RTC-restoring payload (RCM is a bitch)
    Of course, it's possible to put together a system to semi-automatically write the correct RTC value, but it'd be somewhat cumbersome to use.

    You might be right but maybe Horizon does this weird mechanics to not have to "read" the battery's percentage that often which might consume energy as well.

    It hasn't. When you head to the releases on the github page you'll notice that the last release is not from today. Just wait a bit for an update. :)
