    The modding community's favourite greek goddesses are ready to bless your Switch once more. Hekate v5.1.0 is out now and it features full FW 9.1.0 compatibility - but that's just the tip of the iceberg! Many improvements have been made under the hood, such as quicker boot times, support for Android fastboot, low battery shutdown and a bunch of other miscellaneous fixes. Nyx received several enhancements too: eMMC verification is even faster than before, GFX-related functions got speedier as well and the console's fan will now start spinning if the temperature gets too high (because no one likes an overheating system!).

    Before you upgrade, however, here is a quick (but important!) warning: you must overwrite the bootloader directory on your SD card with the one found in the release's ZIP before launching Hekate 5.1.0, just swapping the RCM .bin payload is not enough this time around. You will very likely encounter issues if you choose not to do so, as some of Hekate's dependencies received mandatory critical updates. Finally, the bootloader will now skip patches_template.ini and only look for patches.ini instead to avoid user confusion, plus, empty patches are no longer allowed because they were never needed in the first place. Still, you will be unaffected by this last change if you've set up the aforementioned INI files correctly before.

    If you want to learn more about a specific feature or read all the fixes included in this update, check out the full changelog below:
    UPDATE: Hekate v5.1.1 & Nyx 0.8.4 have since been released, which includes a few bug fixes & improvements and an updater for update.bin/reboot_payload.bin.

    I've never used Hekate. I use SX OS. Is there any reason I should have Hekate installed on my Switch?

    Lakka is what I use it for. Hekate will always be one of the best ways to let you see more info and settings for you Switch,

    Very nice. I only wish there was a way to use Android and an emuMMC that is compatible with Atmosphère and SX OS on the same SD card.
    Doesn't seem like @TariqSoftDev is coming around with his multi sd card solution soon™ sadly.

    Hekate got updated to 5.1.1 yesterday and Nyx 0.8.4. Run them @Danethos86 since they're updated with bugfixes and even faster boot!

    Hekate will never come with signature patches.
