    Please change the nro file's location in zip file.
    Put .nro file in HekateBrew folder.

    So basically I don't need "reboot to payload" any longer with this? Sounds good!
    (I know that pressing POWER and rebooting in AMS actually reboots to whatever I renamed to reboot_payload.bin as well but using the faved reboot to payload icon in hbmenu is even faster for me).
    I second that.
    I hope all devs would just stop spamming their NROs right into the switch folder. Please use subfolders to keep it clean. :)

    New release : 0.9

    Changelog:
    In options page, only show Hekate option if hekate ini file found
    In main page alert user if no payloads were found and no hekate ini file found
    HekateBrew.nro is from now in HekateBrew folder
    (if coming from a previous release, delete HekateBrew.nro from switch folder)
    Fix:
    - "Reboot to Hekate" from main menu
    - Hekate options page​


    @n0v317y, @lordelan nro is from now in its correct subfolder ;)
    @lordelan yes, actually you can reboot to the payload you want to without copying it and renaming it reboot_payload


    If some of you are interested, I can add an autoboot, to an hekate config or a payload, if this nro is launched and no button is pressed in a defined delay

    Last version of hekate payload to allow direct reboot to an hekate configuration.
    (This payload is unused when simply rebooting a payload)

    This sounds like a good idea. Having it booting the reboot_payload.nro unless I hold A while it launches may speed up things. :)

    if it detects emu -> autoboot to sys
    if it detects sys -> autoboot to emu
    If it's possible, this would be great for emummc user.

    That doesn't sound like a good use case to have it as a default. I'm fine with having that optional though.
    Btw it can't "detect sys" when it's stock sysNAND, only if you're using CFW in sysNAND (as you can't even launch hekatebrew otherwise obviously). Just sayin'.

    I plan this for the next release ! (but with a payload of your choice defined in settings)

    Not sure it would be a good use case and I don't think I can do something generic with this use case for all CFW...
    I won't implement it in next release but will definitely have a look to see if I can implement this as optional in a future version

    Where can I get hekate ini files and configure for e.g sys-clk to autoboot with hekate? I want to get rid of kosmos and kosmos toolbox

    Please remove cancel option from exit menu because it's redundant when No does the same thing.

    I second this. Was a bit annoying.

    Apart from this I tried it now for the first time and it's awesome. Just as expected from the screenshots but the fact that it's controllable with button input (while the real hekate obviously can take touch input only) is amazing.
    It's similar to Payload Launcher but with hekate's nice NYX gui. Well done.

    Can someone help a dummy out? How would I need to set this up if I wanted to switch back and forth from Sx os to atmosphere?
