Homebrew how to config atmosphere hekate after SXOS


Jul 18, 2018
hi everyone.

I just recently switched to Atmosphere from SXOS, but there is still some problem I cannot find a solution to.
This is my usual boot sequence.

I still use my SX Pro dongle to turn on my switch and keep pressing down the volume - button to get into SX menu, then I go into payload and there I launch hekate_ctcaer_5.6.0.bin (that I have renamed "payload.bin" for ease of use)

I have an emuMMC 12.0.3 (not hidden just like that into the SD card)

it launched into hekate. there I need to manually select payload and launch "fusee-primary" because if I just select atmosphere from the "launch" option, i get a weird error before it boot into atmosphere (FATAL ERROR [NXBOOT] Failed to run TSEC firmware -6 d0d0d0d0 d0d0d0d0d0f)

this is my hekate_ipl.ini

{------ Atmosphere ------}
{Pick this option to launch CFW.}
{------ Stock ------}
{NOTE: This option does not launch CFW.}

1- Which patches should I use ??? the Fusee ones or the Hekate ones ???

2- and finally when I am in atmosphere, everything works perfectly expect from edizon, every time I start a game the cheats are ON by default even after I modified the system_settings.ini ad placed it into the config folder !!!

my system_settings.ini
