    Atmosphere is a CFW, Kosmos is a pack of a bunch of switch software including Atmosphere. So Kosmos is basically Atmosphere bundled with a bunch of other stuff that's better to get started with

    I prefer vanilla atmosphere, kosmos is like the pack that you download from your random hacking consoles youtuber

    I meant that everything is already preconfigured, I prefer to configure it, and choose exactly which modules I use, etc ...
    But I know it has a higher quality standard than that of a youtuber even having programmers working on the project

    Kosmos is configurable to a surprisingly convenient degree. Its made for the slightly less casual user

    just get kosmos.
    you can still remove things you don't want and add things you think it's lacking.

    it's made for you, since you're new to this. just put it on the sd card (which you should format to fat32 btw) and you're ready to go.

    256gb should be enough if you're not a game hoarder. i'm coming close to filling a 400gb card.

    sorry, not using emunand myself.

    this guide is rather recent but it's a little messy since it explains how to do stuff on windows and linux side by side, so you gotta read it very carefully

    Techincally a beta, but it's the only full-featured guide I know of that covers everything including emuMMC. Made by the same people that do Kosmos.
    https://pubdev.switch.homebrew.guide/gettingstarted/beforestarting

    One thing of note, when you go to do emuMMC, if you run into an error message in Hekate when you try to create the emuMMC partition with fat32 instead of ext4. Myself and another person just today had a problem with that for some reason. Also there's a support chat in the AtlasNX discord if you need any help with things along the way.

    Install autoRCM and get apps like Rekado to inject payloads from Android smartphone. Because after your switch is turned off, you need to inject the hekate payload again.

    One of the downsides with kosmos is it always lags behind atmosphere.

    If you want to be able to upgrade as soon as a new version of atmosphere is released, then kosmos will annoy you.

    Ok I just wanna get to know the basics with kosmos first then if I get a feel for it might use something else at the moment I'm struggling to get my switch into the rcm mode to inject anything need another rcm jig as the one I've got at letting me access the rcm mode.

    Sorry to bring this up, but is Kosmos Up-to-Date with the releases?
    When i download their latest version (Kosmos V14.2) i can see that it has Atmosphere 0.9.4...
    And according to Atmosphere Github, the latest version is 0.10.1 :/

    I think that i will download Atmosphere from their Github and just grab some softwares from the Kosmos package.

    Kosmos has yet to adapt to the major .10 atmosphere release, so you can't use it with OFW 9.1. I'm also wondering what is going on because typically their updates are pretty fast, at least when OFW updates.

    All you really need is the updated hekate, updated atmosphere and its sig patches. Kosmos is more aimed at noobies who don't know what to download to get them started
