    Hello all, random question.

    I just purchased a switch for my daughter and Its currently on firmware 4.0.1. After setting up the sd card with kosmos 12.1.2 i boot it up but it skips hekate and it goes into kosmos (kosmos splash screen) and the the firmware (atmosphere).

    Is there a way that i can go into hekate to backup my nan?

    Another question is there any way to have the switch automatically cold boot into a payload?

    Do i have to do Lockpick on 8.0.1 after I update or should I just do it on 4.0.1?

    Thank you

    I did, and it boots to hekate.
    The only way I can get into hekate is if I remove kosmos from the sd card and install atmosphere .8.9.

    If I have kosmos 12.1.2 on the sdcard and I push hekate (latest) it gives me the kosmo splash screen and then it boots up.

    Switch with 4.0.1

    Download hekate from their github to be safe. And try it with the oficial hekate.
    I think kosmos and atmos use a hekate variation

    Should I replace the hekate from their official site to the kosmo build (if so where should I place it)?

    In kosmos tool box (homebrew you launch from album) you can disable cfw autoboot. You can also reboot to hekate from there.

    Seems likely that autoboot is enabled hence you won't be greeted by the usual hekate options.
    Now if my memory serves me right after injection a payload you have to press the Vol- or Vol+ button to bring up the hekate menu.
    In regards to your inquiry about updating.
    Update by using ChoiDujourNX to prevent any fuses from getting burnt.
    that way you can downgrade back to your 4.1.0 in case ever a coldboot exploits releases.
    As per coldboot, unfortunately there's no software way of doing it (as of yet). anyhow you can check out some nifty guides in the backup loaders and tutorials sub forums on how to install internal UF2 modchips and all that jazz.
    get ChoiDujour nx from here (don't ask for the proprietary firmware files. try your luck on your own in getting them. I'm sorry but its against the rules lad)
    With that being said and all you should keep autorcm enabled at all times if you want to keep the eFuses intact.
    you'll have to run lockpick after updating, yes

    Bypass autoboot by holding the Vol - button.

    Turn it off all together by editing the hekate-ipl.ini with notepad to autoboot=0 instead of 1.

    No need to go though all that. Simply turn it off by going to the config menu.
