    So with the release of Atmosphere, I decided to change over from ReiNX. I installed everything and switched over just fine, but when I went to clean up my SD card, I noticed that if I delete the ReiNX folder on the root of my SD card, Hekate gives me an error message that it "failed to init SD card," and prevents me from loading atmosphere. If I put the folder back, it works just fine. Does anyone know why this might be? I've installed NSP backups on the system, if that makes a difference. I know I can just leave the ReiNX folder and deal with a lightly messy SD card, but I'd really like to know why it's necessary, just in case it becomes a problem in the future. Any insight is appreciated!

    I went the other way, but didn't delete Atmosphere's folder. No problems of notice.
    Maybe it's the payload?

    Alright, so I tried deleting contents from the ReiNX folder one by one and loading Hekate between, and it just kept working, so now my ReiNX folder is fully removed and everything is working just fine. Dunno how that worked, but I'm happy.
