    Because I feel like it. Where does it say I can't ask a question about the tool on SXOS?

    Dude, do you mean to say that non SXOS users are using this tool and others on Atmosphere or other loaders are NOT using backups? This whole site contributes to piracy. I ask a question in later pages of this thread about any updates for SXOS out of curiosity, and the SXOS Hate Police have to put their 2 cents in.

    The reason he told you go to ask on the tx forums is because you CANNOT load custom sysmodules with SX OS. Much in the same way you cannot get a couch in a hardware store.

    Asking for updates here will get you nowhere.

    I'm going to try Atmosphere. Do I still need to use a dongle? Or the joycon rail slider?

    Seriously? You realize how ridiculous that sounds...right?

    This is the Switch Homebrew forum, not Switch Atmosphere and ReiNX forum :rofl2:

    The fact is, it's the homebrew forum & no homebrew developer supports sx. All sx questions need to be asked on the sx forum, not here. Gbatemp is not customer support for TX. You are paying for sxos, therefore you need to get your support from TX.

    It's not sxos hate police. It's the fact that no one here is affiliated with TX. No one knows what TX will do. There are no TX developers here. If you have a question about TX supporting something on sxos then you need to go ask the TX people, not the open source people.

    I think it's silly to assume everyone pays for sxos ;) But I get your point. It still isn't unjustified to ask questions regarding any CFW in this forum though.

    I get what you're saying. I just think that instead of asking questions here, like sxos overclocking, people should ask on the TX forums. That way it shows TX that people are interested in specific homebrew, and TX may implement it in their os.

    yeah, unless you have autorcm

    dongle is needed to send the payload (or a pc)

    if im not mistaken sx loader allows you to load other payloads, just load atmosphere from there

    Question, just saw atms 0.8.9 update, the changelog mention this:

    • fatal now uses the 8.0.0+ clkrst API, instead of silently failing to adjust clock rates on that firmware version
    should this fix freebird on 8.0.0 +??

    sry about my ignorance

    No, 8.0.0 removed the pcv commands Freebird originally used and added a service called clkrst. Freebird and Freeset need to be updated to use both for complete compatibility before it'll work again. I started writing a c file for it after Switchbrew was updated with the info, but never got to finish it. Now that it's pulled into libnx itself, it shouldn't be difficult to add.

    Edit: It's working on 8.0.0+ now. Since the new IPC stuff is a lot easier to use and add to, I've added a second service to the module itself. In the future, if Nintendo decides to do something like this again, Freeset will now totally depend on Freebird for clock speed info. So, all I will have to do is change the module. Little to no work will be needed on the GUI side. Also, still some small issues. Gotta get those worked out first.

    I mean, you could just read through the thread, but to be fair the op could also use an edit. As far as I'm aware the latest version has no issues with sleep mode.

    Freebird is not title specific so I don't think there's any way to do that.
    sys-clk will give you that functionality however.

    Wonder how the official cpu boost on loads screens that nintendo added on 8.0.1 fw that push cpu at 1.75ghz for short periods will be affected by freebirds oc.

    Good point. I should do something about that. The way it is, Freebird will see it and set it back unless it's set to system control.
