I've finally taken the plunge and, thanks to this excellent guide, the procedure was relatively painless (faced a few obstacles because I'm on a Mac...).

Now I'm on the latest version of everything (I don't use Emunand), and I was wondering if there is something an "SX OS" migrant like me should be aware of, now that I'm breathing Atmosphere's air.

As an example: I already know I cannot use .XCI anymore (I'll live), but does Atmosphere also have issues when it comes to (completely) power down the Switch?

Any useful information is very welcome :)

Thank you for all the replies :)
Just to confirm: with Atmosphere, I can (completely) shut down the Switch without issues, right?
Taken from the release notes of Atmosphere 0.8.4

  • Performing a shutdown from the reboot menu now works properly with AutoRCM, and does a real shutdown.
So yeah, it should work as expected. Personally, I always shutdown by reboot to payload (mine is Hekate), and then from Hekate, shutting down. Both methods are ok.

Yes I copied and pasted hats files and folders to my sx os sd card and atmo ran and played games.

He made it very easy.

Unlike you... I moved my sd card content to my pc. Some other guide told me to do this since I have to reformat my sd card into fat32.

Now I can't play any of my games after copying it back over to my sd card. I have over 400gb if games... takes 6 hours just to copy it... ugh

Great to know, thank you :)
Mind expanding on this? I too need to migrate to Atmos and only have a Mac. Thanks!
I've encountered an error when trying to install the Atmosphere files. It was because of the "junk files" Mac OS creates when interacting with Windows (invisible system files which names start with a dot). Once I removed them, the error was gone. The easiest way to clean these up is to use the 'Clean my Drive 2' app from the Mac App Store (free).

No, get the files from Atmosphere GitHub's page.
