    Hi, i am following this guide https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/user_guide/launching_cfw/ and arrived at this last page. But now when i try to Power on my Switch into RCM it always turns on normally. I am trying to hold the volume + button when i power it on, but its not working. And i have another doubt, where should i put the Atmosphere FSS0 file? Thank you.

    Are you using a jig? Is your switch hackable?

    Yes it is hackable, i was using tinfoil paper and it was working. Now i am on this last step of the process but when i press the power button while holding volume + and the console immediately turns on.

    Probably home.
    Try placing the tinfoil again or try another method to access RCM.

    Put it wherever the ini is looking for it. Probably SD root.

    Just to make sure, can you tell me if this file is named "Atmosphere FSS0" if not, what is it named? And where can i download it? I download everything the guide said to download, but i can't find this file. Thank you.

    Why not just use this? https://www.sdsetup.com/
    Select what you want and download, extract it to the of sd card and done.
    And before you struggle getting into RCM, while you are in hekate enable AutoRCM under "tools" or "optoins" cant remember

    Do you have hekate_ipl.ini on the /bootloader folder?

    I will check if i have hekate_ipl.ini on the /bootloader folder when i get home. Is it safe to enable auto RCM like LapCheong said?

    Sorry i didn't answer your question. The reason why there is no payload to boot. Is because the .ini file is missing. Hekate does not know what to boot if do not specify them in the config. The "Atmosphere FSS0" is just a name given in the "hekate_ipl.ini"
    AutoRCM has nothing to do with the files on the sdcard since it corrupt the boot files and forces your switch into RCM state.

    As long you have access to hekate, you can always disable autoRCM. The biggest reason for AutoRCM to be enable is to prevent fuse-burning and hence the possibility of warmboot to emunand in the future. Furthermore, atmosphere fixed the issue with autoRCM and power off. So i dont see a reason not to do so

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Check that fusee-primary.bin exist in bootloader/payload (Not sure if this helps) and double check that hekate_ipl.ini is the correct version from the website and not generated by hekate. Since when the hekate_ipl.ini is missing, hekate will automatically generate a clean version with basic configuration. Open the file in the editor to ensure it is not the basic setting. If you are confuse send me a pm i will forward the files to you

    This is what is written on the hekate_ipl.ini "
    {------ Atmosphere ------}
    {Pick this option to launch CFW.}
    [Atmosphere FSS0]
    fss0=atmosphere/fusee-secondary.bin
    kip1=atmosphere/kips/*
    { }
    {------ Stock ------}
    {NOTE: This option does not launch CFW.}
    [Stock]
    fss0=atmosphere/fusee-secondary.bin
    stock=1
    { }"

    If im not mistaken this guide that i was following doesn't use fusee-primary.bin .

    I managed to make atmosphere fs50 appear by replacing the files with the ones from the guide.
    But when i tried to launch it i got the following messages:


    Foundpkg1 <'20190314172056'>.
    Identified pkg1 and keyblob 7
    Errow while loading fss0:
    atmosphere/fusee-secondary.bin
    wrong ini cfg or missing files
    failed to launch firmware.

    Check your files are all there, specially the /atmosphere folder.
