    An uninstall removes all traces of hakchi from your system and then makes you flash your stock kernel. An uninstall does both those things. I'm a cautious fellow, so I will be uninstalling mine.

    But how can 2.21 do that if I made the kernel dump on 2.20? There's no dump folder for it to go off of to restore it. Not to mention, I'll likely lose all my save states. Surely, one would use the dump you made on 2.20 and restore on the same version, no? I'd think that the MD5/CRC32 of the kernel dump would be different on each version of hackchi.

    With my NESC, I've never experienced "removes all traces". I have done the uninstall and reinstall with different games. I looked at the folders on the NES using the FTP server and found folders and RetroArch settings listing "CLV-X-XXXXX" for games that were part of the old install.

    Let @Cluster know immediately, either tag him here or file a report on GitHub.

    Well, guess I shouldn't be using 2.21b then.

    Well, seems kernel dumping is having issues in the mean time on 2.21. I'm gonna wait.

    I've been using hakchi for a long time. Anytime a new version comes out I:

    1) Download the new version
    2) Go into hakchi folder of last version I was using
    3) Copy dump, games, config, folder_images, user_mods folders
    4)Copy those folders into newest version of hakchi folder

    Voila!

    Works everytime.

    No need to uninstall, flash custom kernel

    The config handles all your folders you've created, the games folder has all your games you've added, the folder images has all your icons you've put into hakchi and user mods has all the cores you've installed.

    This is my CYA (cover your ass) process:

    Uninstall hakchi from the SNES Classic while you're on 2.20. You will get an alert at the end of that process that will ask you to reflash your stock kernel. Say Yes and it will do that for you. (Not strictly necessary--this is a "just in case" step, just in case a newer version of hakchi implements something that causes something flashed with the old version of hakchi to conflict with the OS, or something like that)

    Close hakchi. Install 2.21 "in-place" (which means over the old version) instead of to a new location. The web installer is probably pretty nice for this. Your kernel dump will still be there. Your save states will still be there. Your games will still be there in the list. When computer programs are upgraded, the upgrade wizard usually does not delete all your documents, so you will be fine. You are installing it in-place, so everything will still be where 2.21 assumes they should be.

    Make sure your settings are as you left them and make any changes you wish to make.

    Reflash your custom kernel on 2.21.

    Resynchronize your games.

    Since you're nervous, be sure to make a copy of the hakchi version 2.20 folder before you upgrade it. All your sfroms, box art, config info, dumps, and stuff are in that folder. That way you can go back to 2.20 any time you want.

    If anyone has any corrections, please let me know here.

    Glad you're asking questions. Computer programs are knowable entities; when you learn how they work they stop sounding so scary. Hopefully this helps you! :)

    I'm gonna keep waiting a few more weeks. Get one perfect single install with all the game patches.

    He already fixed it just eight minutes ago, I've re-downloaded the recent build.

    I'd rather stick with the standalone one, but that's just me.

    I've dumped my snes kernel from 3 versions of hakchi (2.0.20.14, 2.0.20.15 and 2.0.21b) and they all have the same md5. I think people return to stock and flash on a newer version to avoid issues with updates/fixes. I haven't lost any of my saves updating. The dump folder stays the same (using the webinstaller), obviously if you use the standalone then you'll have to copy files over from your previous setup.

    Still, I'll wait for a theoretical 2.30. I'm hoping some of the issues with games I want to play (like sound issues with Mega Man X2) can be fixed with a patch.

    Seems like my home server DDoSed by web installers and auto updates... Need to find some other hosting.
