    How do I shrink the internal memory partition and expand the FAT32 partition?

    Why am I feeling so bad now?
    Hello, if I use SX OS does it mean I just need to boot Hekate first off SX OS then from there boot Android?

    you can launch sxos from hekate if need be just open the hekate.ini file and make copy of the ATMOSPHERE Entry and make look like this and add the sx loader payload to payloads folder

    [SXOS]
    payload=bootloader/payloads/sx_Loader.bin
    icon= ( OP)

    Thanks for this, I might not actually need this as I have two cards, one with SX and the other with Android. What I do is boot SX first, then launch Hekate, then Android.

    Sorry if this has been asked before.

    I installed Joycon fix (modified it a bit so it matches Xbox inputs rather than Nintendo) but my Thumbsticks are not analog, it's all or nothing, is that normal?
    also, do Joycons charge when in their rails?

    1. Yes, it's normal. Will be improved in next betas.

    2. Yes, it's normal. Joycons can only charge in their rails on Horizon.

    For some reason after flashing the reboot2payload zip, the app doesn't seem to be installed anywhere in Lineage. Any idea why that might be the case? I'd really like to be able to return to hekate without reflashing every reboot. Thanks!

    I finished the installation but I can't pass the lock screen. It's like the tactile doesn't work. Is this normal or should I try installing it again ?
    EDIT : I passed the lock screen but every touch make the system freezes for 20 seconds and make system apps not responding. It's not as usable as in videos that can be found so I was wondering if it was normal. My SD card is a Sandisk Extreme

    Well ive been using this for a while now, i mostly use it to play my streamed games from my desktop. I use both Nvidia Shield App and Steam App and they work very well.
    This android has many bugs but nothing too serious.
    Here are some tips for newcomers for switch´s Android:
    - Switch does not detect if switch is charging (But it is so dont panic);
    - Touch pad sometimes double taps automatically, like when typing;
    - When you´ve finished using the switch, my advice is to turn it off or charge at dock as it consumes a lot of battery even with screen off;
    - To make the change between the android and CFW easier i use and recommend a RCM Injector (Bought mine on AliExpress).

    The first time i left my switch with android running during night time, on the next morning i thought i had bricked my switch. It was not turning on, no signal, nothing. Left it charging for an hour and then booted to RCM. Conclusion: Android consumes a lot of resources compared to the Switch firmware when in sleep mode. Just sharing this story so you dont freak out :lol::lol:

    Have fun guys B-)
