    The original idea for this was from @shamdul on the ReSwitched Discord. I helped him out on the Discord getting it working and then cleaned up the code a bit and added 4.x support. I've been using it for the past week to get into homebrew launcher on my Switch with no issues. All it does is load up Horizon with homebrew enabled with all the other functions of Hekate being striped out. It is recommended to only use this for development, anyone else should wait for Atmosphere.

    Have you guys built the latest version of Atmosphere? Waiting for the sleep mode bug to disappear.

    (Re)Switched Payload will work on 3.0.x, but until Hekate is ported for it, the payloads are the only options available

    Judging by the commit to fix Hekate for 4.x there is certain parts of package1 that needs to be patched to allow the injection of code in package2. (Decryption and signature hash check.) It doesn't look like anyone has done this for 3.0.0 or 3.0.1 yet. I also don't have a 3.0.x Switch to test on.

    Nope this is the same version that comes with Hekate. I can't wait for the sleep mode bug to disappear. When there is a fix I will update this. ;)

    That is what Hekate and everyone else calls it. I could say it patches package1 to allow editing of package2 so that custom KIP1 blobs can be merged in to allow Homebrew Launcher to be loaded when the album is selected in the main menu or I could just say it loads Hekate's CFW.

    So Hekate is more accurately a HEN rather than a CFW? (Asking for clarification)

    Technically yes, but everyone calls it CFW.

    Was wondering when someone would take the irresistibly cool "switchblade" name. :P

    Thanks for the reply! I'd prefer to explain to everyone the difference between a HEN and a CFW if I just told them that Hekate is a HEN not a CFW. I don't like spreading misinformation. But I'm also aware some end-users don't care so gotta pick my battles.

    Does this still require a jig to be used?

    Yes it still requires the payload to be sent via Fusée Gelée in RCM.

    Let's be real...A HEN isn't A stock FW...it's custom..So A HEN in itself is A CFW. Please go and tell me how that is wrong. Since that is what I been seeing on the forums today..Alot of arguments. What's wrong with people getting angry today? lol people are crazy on here for some reason.

    Upon second reading of your post I came to the conclusion u wasn't arguing it wasn't A CFW. My bad for inciting A potential riot. PEOPLE ARE CRAZY! lol
