ReiNX toolkit released

IMG_1067.PNG

ReiNX developer @Reisyukaku has released a new toolkit for their Nintendo Switch CFW. This toolkit allows for updating an installation of ReiNX custom firmware from within the toolkit, a first for any existing CFW. As far as features go, users will be able to dump their NAND, Cal0, Boot0, and Boot1 through this, as well as a built in AutoRCM toggle option. A major inclusion is that of a Splash.bin converter, which supports .png, .bmp, and .jpeg. You can grab the toolkit from the source below and check it out for yourself.

As it is right now, this toolkit serves only for splashes. Backup (without restore?) and AutoRCM are already done by Hekate.

Good going Reisyukaku.

you guys should decide what you want. More homebrew on portal or not?
if there's no homebrew release on portal, people are whining that only SX OS is advertised, if we put homebrew on portal you are still not happy.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
We are. It's just the toxic people that aren't

the dumped NAND means all the emmc ? or only non active data like boot0/1? (I don't know what cal0 is)
is it safe to dump it while Horizon is running? there might be active processes, temporary files, used settings, etc.
someone tried restoring it to see if there's no problem?

I'd feel safer doing it from the bootloader, without horizon running, unless we can confirm it's as safe.

yea it does full nand. cal0 is prod info iirc

they have been testing the nand dump function for a few weeks now.

edit: confirmed cal0 is prodinfo

I guess they tested restoration too.
But, making a NAND backup while in CFW ... would restore the info you used cfw ?
I still feel safer to do a NAND backup before using any softmod on the console to restore it to a clean state later.
at least, the first time. It's always good to be able to do additional backup with the toolbox while using the console over the months.

I'm 99% sure they did @Crusatyr and @fsgsds should be able to confirm that though

So when the Staff doesn't post this stuff it's, "They only care about the SX team and don't care about the community!" But when they do they are suddenly, "Trying too hard." So basically what you are saying is that no matter what they do, people are just going to complain because there's no winning anymore.

NAND dumping from inside the OS seems like a neat trick, but it's not practical for an initial dump, I don't think. By that point wouldn't there be the possibility of a log or something that reveals you've been messing with RCM mode? I guess it'd be useful for dumping a NAND post-CFW, in case you need to swap back to a clean NAND temporarily but want to have another backup with all your installed certs, etc., but I dunno. Also not sure if I trust AutoRCM installation from within the OS, but I suppose it might still be possible to un-fuck it if something goes wrong.

I think the issue stems from a lack of clarity in the original post. From the description it sounds largely like another clone of Hekate (which isn't newsworthy, since ReiNX itself is already mostly just a rebranding of an existing CFW), rather than explicitly stating that it's a homebrew app.

It's @Reisyukaku's official app for his CFW. the nand dumping takes a fraction of the time that it does of hekate not to mention more features are coming to it

I understand that much, and I'm not knocking it (although I am curious about it being 'faster' than Hekate's dumping; with a lack of source code there's no way to know if it's just because it's skipping out on integrity checks, etc.). I'm just saying that it's certainly less useful for a user doing their initial NAND dump - both because there's a possibility of logs in your NAND that you've been using RCM or booting CFW since you have to boot into Horizon to access it, and because of the apparent possibility of corrupting the SD card while using it.
