I am trying desperately to get SXOS and Atmosphere running on the same SD with two different partitions. Looking for some guidance on my journey. I don't care if SX is dead, I still want both worlds if its indeed possible.

I am using Mariko switch lite with SX Lite core.
  • Backed up original SD
  • Currently I am deleting the hidden partition on my SD through SX boot menu, in order to create a new hidden partition emunand.
  • Then using a partition wizard, split the second partition leaving 32gb unallocated for Atmos
  • Set up atmosphere emunand on 32gb partition
I am aware I have to edit the hektate.ipl file for Mariko and latest keys for Mariko, however
  • Will my switch still boot into SXOS automatically?
  • Can I keep SXOS 11.0.0 and atmosphere on its latest version?
Is there any steps I am missing? If anyone could give a quick walkthrough I'd highly appreciate it. thank you!

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
