    As title, i'd like to gauge what CFW members in our community are using :)

    Optional - after you have answered the poll feel free the post your reasons why. I'll start.

    I'm using v1.6 of SX OS because it is truly the only all in one easy to use custom firmware available - it also has XCI loading which is my format of choice for numerous reasons. Plus the dongle and jig is amazing.

    Cheers

    RajNX isn't technically a CFW either. Its just a modified Hekate running on Atmosphere. Seriously, Atmosphere has been out for months guys and everyone has been running it. Those SD files weren't compiled from thin air.

    Atmosphere. You know that folder RajNX uses to load its stuff? Yeah, its been released buddy. RajNX is just a package combining patches from Atmosphere with the bootloader from Hekate.

    In Papa Rei's closet.
    Then i am using that, currently. As SXOS was crashing a shit ton. Crashed almost every time i closed LA Noire.
    No longer happens now. Using Hekate CFW (is it Atmos? RajNX? I don't even know anymore).

    Hekate isn't a CFW, it's a loader. TECHNICALLY the only true CFW are Atmosphere and ReiNX

    Well the thing is Hekate is just a bootloader. Its just meant to act as a payload for you to boot some stuff with. Hekate doesn't enable piracy directly in any way with any of its patches. Those all come through Atmosphere such as LayeredFS or IPS patches. Of course, Atmosphere is a WIP that is constantly being worked on so updating it means recompiling the base code which tomGER is currently handling better than anyone else.

    To answer the topic, I've been using Atmosphere through Hekate (Fusee (atmospheres official bootloader) does work on 4.x and 5.x properly yet)

    The parts of Atmosphere I've been using:
    sm
    pm
    loader
    exosphere
    LayeredFS (sometimes)

    It was a joke as it hasn't "officially" been released. So it will remain off the poll.

    Fair point, I mean if we wanted to make the poll really accurate, then the only answer is Atmosphere since all CFWs are based off of it :P

    Haha. Well it should be released this month - according to the wiki anyway. Will be an interesting time for the scene. I'll update the poll then ;)
