Im running atmosphere but its stuck in a bootloop and cant get past the switch logo. vol up and down plus power wont work, so how do I fix this from the hetakate toolkit? I tried turning off autorcm and booting that way but it didnt work. It would blue screen more and more after trying things that didnt work like psp emulation. this last fatal one happened after intalling yoshis wolly world on goldleaf.

Update: It gets past the bootloop when booting stock but cant launch anything. its on firmware 9.1

when I turn the system off I get the nintendo crash screen. I tried to format the system without save data and screenshots from the recovery screen by holding volume up doan and power when powering on but it turns off and cant turn back on.

When it crash screens It will get stuck in another bootloop at the switch logo for a while unless I leave it alone for a dew days. there seems to be a fatal error when it powers down

how do I store switch games larger than 4 gigs on it then
You shouldn't store NSP files directly on the SD card. You should install NSP files over a USB, FTP, or internet connection. It's incredibly inefficient to install NSP files directly off the SD card.

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
