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!
