    Hello everyone, and welcome to the official thread for ReiNX.guide!

    In conjunction with our massive 1.6 release, as well as the release of our Toolkit, the ReiNX team spent lots of time creating a helpful guide to get you from a non-hacked Switch to one running ReiNX. Sure, there are lots of stashes out there, but the issue with those are they become outdated quite frequently and it can cause issues when updating due to version differences. On top of that, I was always of the mindset that you learn the best by actually doing, so hopefully by following this guide you can take away some hacking knowledge of your own! The guide not only instructs you on what to do, but also tells you why you have to do it. Sooner or later you'll be a whiz at hacking Switches and can even get your friends in on it!

    We also have a dedicated website for our CFW/Toolkit nightlies over at builds.reinx.guide!

    Features:


    • Notices - Now you can just take a glance at the home page to see if there are any updates to the CFW/Toolkit or anything that we consider important enough to mention.
    • FAQs - This doesn't just cover ReiNX specific questions, we tried our very best to include questions the entire scene has been asking. Feel free to reference this whenever you're outta ideas.
    • Updated Downloads - The links on our site will be constantly updated, and big updates will be pushed to Notices, so you'll always know you have the most up to date files.
    • Anime Backgrounds - uhhhh
    • Updated Builds/Nightlies - You can find these under builds.reinx.guide. These contain our nightlies for ReiNX as well as official releases for the toolkit and our CFW.
    The site is a semi-beta product so it will probably be updated in the coming days/weeks as issues are pointed out (although we tried our best to iron most of them out). However! If you have any issues with it, such as something not making much sense, broken downloads or maybe feel like you have a good addition to our FAQs/Troubleshooting page, feel free to let us know in this thread!

    Odd how this one isn't pinned but the old one by Meteos still is. Also, congrats on making the third ReiNX-related thread in the span of 5 minutes.

    Nitpick: "Repo" should actually be "Downloads" as it's not an actual 'repository'.

    No, it doesn't, it's an announcement of a guide/new version. The guide itself is elsewhere.

    I like this a lot, really sexy. I'll update my guide to link here.

    hmmm, the only thing i did different is i put tinfoil and reinx toolkit into respective folder in switch folder (i like it nice and clean, they start normal via SXOS anyway so i think is not a problem) i'll try to use tegra and let you know if i succeded.

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

    so i did now exacly the same as in tutorial and it gives me black screen. i've tryed via tegra and the same situation. after splash gives black screen.
    wierd


    ps
    i want to say that this is first time i played with reinx. normal im using SXOS (via pro dongle) and RajNX (via pro dongle). rajnx works just fine loaded as a exteranl payload via pro dongle.
    this is indeed a great site about reinx (hope i get it to work somehow). looks pro ;) it would be nice however to get reinx as a AiO package.

    sorry for my english
