    We’re getting closer to Cemu on the switch...

    Still can't seem to get my usb stick to detect in linux though. Plug it in and...... nothing.

    And just to confirm, yes, it's an original and works perfectly fine, not a clone.
    This is the one I have https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB12Pme...B-128GB-256GB-usb3-0-mini-Pen.jpg_640x640.jpg

    I'm not too great with Linux and terminal (only mild dabling), so if someone can or wants to make a little guide with commands to build the Vulkan build of Dolphin on our glorious little tablet, that would be a huge help to some of us!

    Thanks for this great work, dead easy to setup and working very well so far.

    The problem I have is the kernel is ultra stripped down to the point of lacking basic features (supporting my USB3 NIC and no nfs).

    Which kernel sources should I be building from? Also what is the cross compile target?

    **EDIT** nvm, i fixed the issue by using a wireless mouse

    Just go to github and pick up CTCaer/tx_custom_boot.py and use it to create a boot.dat with hekate inside. That's the easiest. I can't post links sorry, in the CTCaer/hekate repo issue #82 links to the python script.

    Thank you very much for the prompt response. I'm still a bit confused. I could find the tx_custom_boot.py, downloaded it, but I still don't know what I am supposed to do with this file. Should I put it in some directory of Hecate?

    Correct, extract the latest hekate bin in the same directory then change line 31 (stage2_fn = 'hekate_ctcaer_3.2.bin') of tx_custom_boot.py to the filename of hekate in the same directory. Then just run the tx_custom_boot.py and it will create a new boot.dat file. Put that in the FAT32 partition of the microsd card.

    Yes anything larger than 16GB.

    Someone managed to solve the black screen problem? I leaved my switch on that black screen for about 15 minutes and nothing.

    Wow, that cleared a lot. Thank you. Did everything you said, including realocating a bit of space in the microsd to send the boot.dat to the FAT32 partition. The only trouble I am facing now is how to run the python script. Sorry, I am a noob. Can you help me with this?

    Hi to all this ubuntu make me register here :)
    To the question yes you need to format your sdcard first recomending on linux and do this

    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/"yoursdcard" bs=4M
    then restore the image with this comand

    dd if=/"path to the image" of=/dev/"yoursdcard" bs=4M

    then use gparted to resize the ext4 partition to fir your sdcard size

    put your cart to switch then make l4t autoboot shutdown from menu
    power on switch and inject the peyload to boot hecate :) that all this works 100% all the time

    ===========================================


    Yes tryed game of trons 1080p on Kodi works perfectly fine :)
    Kodi is installing and working and i saw they use Nvidia drivers :) not mesa

    Tomorow more testing and usb ethernet adapters not work maybe the kernel is some striped one we need kernel with more drivers guys :)

    I installed it earlier. After you reboot, you'll have to change the front end you're using away from kodi, underneath the password bar, but it's still there, and it works.

    Also, to make sure you're on latest, terminal
    Sudo apt-get update
    Sudo apt-get upgrade

    I've tried installing it, always results in error. I've already tried the update and upgrade. Nothing works.

    That's...... really strange. I'm afraid I can't help you. I'm not super versed in Linux usage.

    I'm fairly certain some Class-10 64GB SanDisk MicroSDs are causing issues with this. I just went from one of those to a normal speed 16GB Samsung and it installed on the first go.

    Someone else in the thread has mentioned this same SanDisk card having issues:

    I was struggling to get this card to boot and when it did it was extremely unstable.

    tldr: If anyone's having issues with booting or instability, try using a different SD.
