    Why is anyone still using Hekate? Atmosphere with sig patches from https://gbatemp.net/posts/8416553/ works fine. What are people using Hekate for that Atmo's bootloader can't do?

    Correct. Atmosphere takes sig patches fine and boots reliably, so what are people using Hekate for? Nand restores? A very heavyweight way to enable autoRCM?

    It puts up a menu to select different configs, allows you to load other payloads and even just boot OFW without burning fuses. I switched to atmosphere, but I can see why others might be happy to use hekate

    Ahh, booting into stock FW without burning fuses is a valid use case.

    Fusee doesn't really count as a fully fledged bootloader.

    Hekate and Fusee serve different purposes and don't aim to replace each other. In fact, we often share code between the two projects.

    Fusee is a bootloader designed to launch Atmosphère's components, so it focuses solely on that. It's goal is mainly to provide an all-in-one solution for end users who only care about launching Atmosphère.
    Hekate, on the other hand, is designed to be a general purpose bootloader and as such provides various useful features (NAND management, key extraction, etc.) on top of bootstrapping any CFW or OFW.

    You can and should make use of both as you deem fit.

    I can backup my nand with any number of other payloads that are not as complex as Hekate. Other than launching OFW without burning fuses, I struggle to think of a use for Hekate anymore. Probably why this thread has a handful of replies.

    How adorable defending pirates. You'd make my heart break if i gave a crap about breaking the law. I personally laugh at the people with banned switches they knew this was coming but still they were idiots and did this anyway so to them i say Ha Ha!

    Right, then. Since you've got nothing of value to contribute.. I've got no reason to further respond.
