    Ok guys ... Been reading a bunch .. getting my switch all setup to run CFW and im stumped.

    followed Switch Hacking 101 https://gbatemp.net/threads/switch-hacking-101-how-to-launch-the-homebrew-menu-on-all-fw.504012/

    did a full backup without issue and saved it to usb and HD

    when I go to launch ReiNX or Fusee Gelee from the Hekate menu .. with ReiNX I see the splash screen and then black screen .... and with Fusee Gelee I get patching Kips screen .. then atmosphere splash screen .. then black screen

    Now one thing i think that may be causing the issue but maybe im crazy is my SD card is 128GB formatted in ExFat ?

    otherwise im at a loss.

    I want to run the latest atmosphere but I cant seem to find a "how to" for it.

    Thank you in advance switch gods

    For starters, that's a very outdated guide and I know I didn't recommend it to you because its outdated. But yes, the black screen is most likely due to you trying to load CFW using an exFAT formatted SD card on a console that doesn't support exFAT. You can format your SD to FAT32 using something like GUIFormat then the homebrew application ChoiDujourNX to patch any firmware you give it on the SD card to have exFAT support.

    There's a reason why I linked you to https://www.sdsetup.com/ for Atmosphere
