    Here goes a little tutorial on getting hbmenu working on firmware 1.0.0 and up to 3.0.0.


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Requirements:
    - A switch with FW 1.0.0 or up to 3.0.0
    - PegaSwitch access
    - loader.pfs0 renamed to loader.nsp (you can build it from source) Download: Google Drive
    - hblauncher.nro - Official website

    Step one

    Put hblauncher.nro and loader.nsp in the root of your MicroSD

    Step two
    Launch PegaSwitch with your favourite method

    Step three
    Run this javascript snippet: https://pastebin.com/UBLJsgse
    To do this, save that snippet to a javascript file and call it something like "hbmenu.js", then from PegaSwitch run:
    Code:
    evalfile usefulscripts/hbmenu.js

    Step four

    Close your browser and open the Gallery App. Hbmenu should launch

    Credits
    Not me. I merely compiled loader.pfs0 and wrote this guide.
    @TuxSH from ReSwitched for coming up with that JavaScript snippet this guide uses.
    @BL4Z3D247 for pointing me in the right direction.
    Of course Plutoo and Yellows8 for Homebrew Launcher (hbmenu)

    This was tested on my 1.0.0 launch day Switch. Report here your results.

    Post note: As other people confirmed (and to no one surprise) the majority of Homebrew designed for 3.0.0 surely won't work.

    Bravo!

    :)

    edit: Test if it can run other .nros and if they have sdcard file system access (loading roms f.e.) - on 1.0.0. :)

    Tomorrow I'll do some tests, but:
    - RetroArch crashes. No output
    - SD Access is possible (LovePotion games work)
    - The .nros that work crash sooner or after :C

    Ciao! Son contento anche io di trovare altri italiani!
    Instant translation: Hi! I'm happy too to find other Italian people here.
    (Should be fine.)

    I'm sorry, but you have to talk in English here, so edit your post before an admin sees it
    Edit: fixed

    Just one slight recommendation - test stability of emus with cpajustes libnx based emus. :)

    Original comment said they used the js to test libnx based software if I'm correct - also much less (as in none - if you exclude certain scummvm games) random crashing than retroarch builds.. ;) (The current snes build of RA runs stable on 3.0.0 as well - once you've got a rom running.)

    I need to port this to the esp8266 now. I am still waiting to see if it works

    @snoofly should work with fake news since all that does is point to a secure browser

    @weatMod its a way for 1.0 users to access the web browser without the need for PPT

    Yeah but when it says launch Pegaswitch with your favourite method I thought 1.0.0 needed ppt?
