But nothing beats his guides!
I have nothing against Plailect but his 3DS / Wii U guide wasn't that great in some aspects, it has some vital copy'n paste syndrome at some points that made it really confusing. I honestly think that his guide might not be the no 1 choice this time - Probably just for the fact that it will describe Atmosphere, a sigchk-less CFW, together with fusee. This scene definitely is much more varied than past scenes.

Not going back to that reinx guide site. The anime shit cringes me out completely. Plialects guides are more professional and easier to follow

And not cringy.

TIL CFW guides/websites for a children's console should be professional

I think people dont get that Plaitects guide is for Atmosphere (and only for Atmosphere with fusee)

This guide and ReiNX guide will always be relevant for people that want to use ReiNX/ Hekate and enjoy much more features than fusee has - Hekate will always stay more useful than fusee so why should people focus on one guide / CFW when we have multiple CFW-packages with really different goals

is RajNX really a CFW ?
is ReiNX a CFW in that regard then?
RajNX has options when booting to give the user what they want like Hekate. Where ReiNX picks the settings for you and you have to delete files to get what you want if it's not what rei sees as standard (see I cbf deleting nogameslot or what not as my switch was 4.1 when I got it and sometimes I want layeredfs on)

Good point.
What I meant is just that basically, this guide could also be used for RajNX I guess...
