    formerly known as Hekate mod "J" (I used to maintain Hekate fork that has ACID & nocmac patches hard coded, but recently decided to discontinue due to the latest changes on Hekate v5 and Tinfoil/Lithium)

    This handy All-in-One package includes everything you need to run modified/installed contents on Switch.


    Features
    • ES patches for FW 2.0.0 - 9.0.0
    • default nosigchk(FS) patches for FW 1.0.0 - 9.0.0
    • ACID(FS) patches for FW 1.0.0 - 9.0.0
    • nocmac(FS) patches for FW 1.0.0 - 6.2.0
    How to use
    1. Download the latest release and extract it to the root of your Switch SD card
    2. Start hekate through e.g. Fusée Gelée, TegraRcmSmash or WebCFWLoader
    3. ???
    4. Profit!
    (Optional) How to use nocmac (this is not really needed unless you are trying to manually downgrade to 6.1.0 by using the PC method via https://switch.homebrew.guide/usingcfw/manualchoiupgrade)

    open hekate_ipl.ini then simply add "kip1patch=nocmac" under "kip1patch=nosigchk"

    So, I am understanding that you're no longer going to maintain the J mod of hekate, right? So for any future hekate updates we will have to revert to the official branch, which dz/lithium will refuse to work with because we don't have the properly signed update.bin.sig, right?

    Are ACID patches only necessary for running converted XCIs, or are they needed for other things as well?

    I think they are needed for standard crypto conversions, too.

    Yes, that's why I started this thread to announce the latest change on my repo.

    Hey guys, after adding the patches I still get "Checking if the software can be played" message. Anyone else get that issue?

    but there haven't been any changes to dz/lithium. It still refuses to work with stock hekate and your patches.ini file.

    yeah, now it works. Does blawar consider removing the signature check for hekate from dz/lithium?

    Good to see, I know people were glad to be able to use your fork but it's nice to stick to official releases where possible. Thanks for releasing the patches this way.

    You'd hope so, should never have been there.

    Whats great I actually beat you (joonie)to the punch lol. I added this to xbins about 7 hours ago :) Thanks for your contributions and allowing a easy solution for those who wish to run atmosphere but have complications on conversions and other homebrew.

    Why does this exists when there is a .zip called "patches" in the Kosmos GitHub? @tomGER is this totally necessary or some kind of what the hell is this?

    This is great news, the scene just became less fragmented. This is great news for goldleaf and tinfoil users as it will reduce the number of "this software cannot be started" errors that newbs got.

    Why do you even exist? There are billions of other Humans on this Planet!
    Why not being Thankful, instead complaining about nothing!

    I don't think you got my point. Kosmos includes patches. What is the point of this release, or is it that Kosmos wont include patches anymore?
