    Just found this and wanted to clarify a few things I've read.

    A) Atmosphere was randomly crashing on higher clock speeds but this seems to be fixed in a recent commit, so running a nightly build of Atmosphere should resolve this.

    B) When over clocked the Switch will freeze if allowed to go to sleep. This is given a work around on page 9 where the overclocking shuts off automatically when entering sleep mode. However it needs to be turned back on after waking. Does this mean you can change OC values while a game is running or do you need to quit and relaunch the game to see the effects?

    C) Is the link in the OP up to date with this Sleep workaround or should I be downloading the one from page 9?

    Did I get anything incorrect or misunderstand anything?

    The site seems a little odd at the moment and is messing up my posts... But yes I'm glad you asked those questions because I too would like to know :)

    For B, as long as you have Atmo configured to use an applet like the album for the homebrew menu, you can change clock speeds without quitting the game. An on screen overlay would be nice if that's want you wanted, but I don't know when I'd have time to do something like that.

    C: You can use the one on page 9 or this one. The one I linked doesn't turn itself off when the system is asleep. It's an option in newer builds, but only me and people testing have that right now. I haven't had any issues brought to my attention yet though, so soon. There's still a few small things I gotta get added and done before I release it.

    Just an update: Currently getting feedback after about a week or so and implementing/changing things. Everything seems to work as intended, but some very good points and possible improvements have been brought up.

    Do you think you will release the source at some point or?

    I don't blame you for having it closed-source, @JK_ . Not only is there that paid closed thing with free homebrew in it plastered everywhere, but there's that controversial 'dev' posting closed things, as well. The second this is opened, it'll get implemented elsewhere while laughing in your face.

    I tried, trust me man, I really tried, you would need sx to introduce their version of this themselves.

    The other overclocker is open source if TX want to steal it.

    Still undecided. I think I've said it before, but if something happens and I can't continue it, I will make it public. It's already up, just not public.

    If SX needs something this simple done for them, it just confuses me and makes me question a lot of stuff, really.

    You re right. Actually I dont have an SX but the only thing that is intersting about it is that Team Xecuter are claiming that they re close to a solution to hack the patched switches.

    Hell
    There’s people who already have a solution for patched systems, TX wouldn’t be the first

    I'm using it on 8.6 without issue, check your files and be sure to look for the latest freebird in this thread


    Btw I was wondering, does freebird work well on 7.01? I'm thinking about updating my system.
