    Switchbrew has released a major update to nx-hbloader, a host process for loading NRO files for Switch homebrew applications. This new version makes some improvements such as now allowing for applications to run with the full amount of 3.2GB RAM, as opposed to the past, where it could only use ~400MB of RAM. Library applets are still usable, and older homebrew NRO files will still work, but they are limited to using 442MB of RAM max, this also counts when running it through the album app. Other changes were made, including making the program less prone to issues by disabling core3 access, and more. You can grab the .nsp at the GitHub for the project, and see the full changelog below.

    If we run a hb with switch's full potential, do we need also a refrigerator for cooling???

    Deep freezer. It's already hot as hell when plugged in or the brightness is beyond 50%

    Great! Does this also mean greater perfomance in emulating overall? I'm excited to see if someone is going to attempt to port heavier homebrew games for the Switch. Who knows if a Portal version ever surfaces, like the Aperture Science DS? Would be my biggest dream.

    Is this the same as the homebrew launcher nsp giving access to more ram?

    ikr, just few hours in dock mode and our throttled switch heats as a hot baked potato, i can't even imagine it if we could run HB at 100%...

    Nice. Now I have no skin on my hand.
    For real though I always felt it getting hot, but never thought to feel the vent. I can now play games and make pancakes on the go.

    I can't install that nsp on 6.0.1. Tinfoil stops with an error. What I'm doing wrong?

    You don't install it but put it in atmosphere folder to grant more ram to the nro.

    Funny though! I just mentioned they could come up with this to someone on the atmosphere news thread :D

    Someone said this only worked when hbloader is installed, instead of accessed through the album.

    This is huge. I can’t wait to see the flood of updated homebrew.

    If you have an hbloader forwarder installed, you’ll be fine.

    So ummm, what happens if you accidentally install this NSP using the SX OS installer? Asking for a friend.

    Am I right in assuming that the mupen64plus core will now run with the nro and not require an installed nsp?

    Maybe a question for the Retroarch thread.
