Appreciate for your help

I am using sx os with emunand. By accident my kids upgraded to firmware 12 and sx os doesn’t work as we all know.

Now I resume the system by restoring an old emunand folders and back to f6.1 then upgraded to f11 to make it work again. However, how can I get back the save in the f11 emunand as I cannot boot into it to use “Checkpoint” to download save data. Any suggestion?

It's a bit of a pain, but you can boot the latest Atmosphere on your fw12 emunand and then use checkpoint or whatever to get your saves. At that point though, you could just downgrade your emunand fw to 11 and switch back to SX OS (no need to move saves to your new emunand you created, just delete it). Also, how did your kids accidently update emunand, was it online?

Just setup Atmosphere.

Thanks for you info. How could I make sure the Atmosphere is on my Emunand instead of the SYSNAND? I am new to Atmosphere so this question may be stupid....

Yes, I don't even know. When they switch on a game and ask to upgrade and they probably click the wrong button.

Hekate should look like the attached pic if emunand is enabled. To enable it, See this.

  • Follow steps 4, 6, 7 and 8 to create the folder structure needed.
  • nintendo_path in emummc.ini should point to Emutendo.
  • Move SX OS files from /sxos/emunand to /EmuMMC/eMMC.
  • Rename the files you just moved according to this picture.
  • If you didn't setup Atmosphere yet, follow the pinned guide, but skip emuMMC creation.
  • If you did everything correctly, Hekate will look like this.

Atmosphere is on your SD card. You have to ensure you boot into emuMMC or sysMMC when you send the payload. Hekate is easier to ensure this with because you can choose to manually enter emuMMC.

    And I'm still on Batman: Arkham City. Such a good game. Mr Freeze's boss fight is hard and extensive, we're currently at a point where whoever gets the next strike wins. If I miss I'll lose another 30 mins at least.

    Does anyone happen to know if the gecko code handler will always be in the same location? It would be useful if you could call into it's own subroutines in ASM codes.
    Gift
  • FAST6191 @ FAST6191:
    Are there any codes that modify the handler to do fun extras like there are for DS codes?
    Gift
  • gudenau @ gudenau:
    I don't see why you would need that, Gecko just allows you to do ASM directly instead of needing to make codes to add new code types.

  • gudenau @ gudenau:
    There is nothing stopping you from doing that though.

  • FAST6191 @ FAST6191:
    I was thinking more if there were (some of the DS stuff allowing I think it was different boolean masks than stock) then it would confirm that.

  • gudenau @ gudenau:
    Some of the later DS stuff was pretty impressive. I do want to figure out how some of the lower level stuff worked one of these days.
