Hi everyone, Ok a little confused- I just installed Atmosphere on my Switch: I want to Update my firmware and install .nsp games

1) What folder do I put my .nsp games in ?

2)_ Also I'm at 11.0.1 and wanting to update my firmware to 12.0.2 and I'm trying to update my firmware using Daybreak. Do I need to go through TegraRCM to do this ( I also installed Awoo too) and also do I just put the Firmware onto the root of my SD card?

Thanks

1. You can create a folder call NSP and put nsp file inside, you have to navigate to that folder when installing

2. When you unzip the rar file into a folder, copy that folder of update files into your SD, navigate to where it is in daybreak and then update. You can use the Hekate USB mounting feature to copy files over.

Hi again, I put an NSP folder on the root of my sd card with an .nsp game inside I see the folder but i don't see the game inside.
Can you tell me by steps on how to do it. I installed Awoo isn't that the program I use to launch nsp games??

Thanks

you need matching patches that go along with your bootloader, so fusee patches if you use fusee-primary and hekate/fss0 patches if you use hekate as your bootloader.

Yes I'm using Hektate - sorry not 100% sure what you are saying though about patches.

you need the es patches to load games, good chance it is not loading because you don't have the patches on your SD card.

Ok I'll try downloading the Hektate / Atmosphere folders again.
To be clear (on my end) I put a folder named NSP with the game inside and place it on the root of my SD card, then I select Awoo and that's how I can play the games??

*Note* I still can't get it to work !!

Make sure you put the patches in the folder structure as the one in the zip file, if you don't use the correct bootloader with the correct patches, the game won't boot.

For some reason the News app isn't getting updated in my sysMMC. All other online services are working perfectly. This doesn't seem to be a known issue, would there be any fix? Or does this have something to do with the latest update having issues?

I have followed all the steps outlined in https://rentry.co/SwitchHackingIsEasy to put Hekate and Atmosphere. I have used the latest versions and I believe my folder structure is correct.

After bootking hekate and trying to load Atmosphere I get the sequence seen in this video. After the Atmos logos it takes literal minutes to get to the Nintendo Switch screen, from which the CFW never finishes to boot and eventually goes on a blank screen.

This is a newly formatted Mini SD card, although it's on the oldish side, circa 2012.

What could I do to debug this behavior, and maybe apply a fix? I have tried the obvious ones of repeating the process, and SysNand boots just okay.

Ok, so what does a "patched" game do then? What is the point of a patched game?

you have minimum firmware requirement for game, the bypass method doesn't work for newer game, so if you want to newer game above 11.0.0 you would have to update, SX OS is dead.

Any advice - I just recently switched from SXOS to Atmosphere. I never had any problems with my 1TB micro card until now. Not sure if because I had to format my card from exFat to Fat32. But it won't allow me to add bigger games without it saying "I Need More Space" like I said its a legit 1TB micro card I've used for months now.

Thanks anyone
