    Always update your CFW, and then your firmware.

    So, that's the reason of your 16 mb unallocated. If you want to acces your sd card under your PC, use Hekate usb features with your switch connected via usbC cable.

    If you can still access your sd on PC, then no problems. If you need regular access to your sd , I highly recommend using usb transfer, as the switch slot card is "extremely weak", and you will be ending with a replacement of the sd reader.

    The 16mb unallocated is the "way" of Hekate for creating an EmummC, , to "improve". Don't delete it. Doesn't harm.
    Nothing complicated under Hekate, go to tools and usb. You should run a script (on your pc) before , only once, to improve transfer speeds. The script is available on the official Github of Hekate.

    You need to start Hekate “straight “ from a dongle, do you have one ? Or only booting your switch from tegra ?

    I have sx core

    What will happen if i replace my Sx boot.dat with this one
    https://github.com/CTCaer/hekate/issues/473

    This boot.dat doesn't allow me to boot at all. Thought it would boot me straight into hekate.

    Dunno, sorry, not sx core user, and It will be very useful when actually asking for help, to detail your “configuration “ (Erista, patched or unpatched, Mariko, sxcore...), just for the answers to be “accurates” and useful.

    That’s fine, no worries, I just personally hate to have to remove my sd card when others solutions are available.

    Hi, I'm completely new to the switch scene, but I saw a switch lite with a sx lite chip and thought it might be an interesting buy. However, I'm having trouble finding information on the whole Xecuter modding scene, so I have a few questions maybe someone can help me with.
    Is the company still in business?
    Does that matter? Do I need any software/firmware from them?
    Is the chip just a "way into" safe mode of the console, and therefore everything else is the same as if I had a non-patched console?
    Are there any advantages/disadvantages to having this chip?

    Thanks in advance

    • From the little information we have, we are assuming the company is still alive because their sites, forum, and Discord are still open but due to the recent arrests of key members from their organization, they may not stay in business that much longer
    • Yes and no. If you want to exclusively run their CFW, you need to download their software. And while some people keep backups, if it is not updated regularly, you will not be able to launch it on higher firmware versions. However there are ways of using other CFW with their chip so it is not the end of the world if you cannot use their CFW
    • No, the chip just "glitches" the console into booting CFW. It is a completely different method than the exploit used on unpatched consoles
    • The advantage is that the chip makes launching into a CFW resemble a coldboot because it requires no external interaction or modification. The disadvantage is that its not as elegant launching into other CFW besides SX OS but that is a small price to pay to be able to hack otherwise un-hackable Switch units

    I've been checking various guides/threads before I make an attempt to 'clone' my sd card. The last one I linked seems to be hit nor miss. Not sure about the following guide.
    https://birbchirp.gitbook.io/switchguide/misc-useful-stuff/migrating-emu-new-sd

    Would migrating your emummc to a new sd card interfere in someway with the original card working? I want to know if I'd still be able to use the original SD card or if the process somehow messes with pointers or something and makes it so in the end you're just going to be left with the new SD card. The reason I want to do this is so I can just swap between cards depending on the games or homebrew setup I want to run on EmuMMC more like a stock switch.

    Looks like you didn’t install latest Atmosphere (I see 0.16.2 ) witch doesn’t support firmware 11.0.1
