    Hey guys

    So this is me

    SX OS latest

    OFW 6.2

    I want to switch to atmosphere and i have seemingly installed its payload, but all my NSPs do not work.

    I have looked around and there is a lot of info and patches sigpatches etc but im sure there is a surefire way of getting to the end of this. Could someone point me in the right direction

    I have loaded into Atmosphere and can run homebrew, no worries.

    BTW i dont have any idea what hektake or reinx etc is :) if that helps.

    There's no compatible sigpatches yet, we will have to wait a couple of hours/days.

    You need hekate (the bootloader) to launch Atmosphere. ReiNX is another CFW, very outdated and featureless, don't even think about it.

    You need to install the sigpatches from here https://gbatemp.net/threads/i-heard-that-you-guys-need-some-sweet-patches-for-atmosphere.521164

    If you are an SX pro user like myself, just copy all your files to your microSD card and launch the CFW using the SX OS Pro dongle to send the payload.

    My NSPs still work on 6.2 with ams 0.8.4.

    I think it depends on the NSPs.

    You need sigpatches to use nsps
    Since you seem to be new to switch hacking i would reccomend you download this and extract it onto your sd card

    Hey so

    If i did this from this thread

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/use-atmosphere-to-access-full-ram-with-homebrews-without-nsp.521240/

    "
    1. Download the latest release of Atmosphère here, as well as fusee-primary.bin : https://github.com/Atmosphere-NX/Atmosphere/releases
    2. Extract the ZIP to the root of your SD card
    3. Download the latest release of the hbmenu here : https://github.com/switchbrew/nx-hbmenu/releases
    4. Put hbmenu.nro to the root of your SD card
    5. Download the latest release of hbloader here : https://github.com/switchbrew/nx-hbloader/releases
    6. Put hbl.nsp in the atmosphere folder of your SD card"
    Ive done this-does that mean hekate is running?

    Cool, i will do this. but im also interested to know, that is using Hekate? No matter how much ive read about "hekate" i still cannot find out what exactly it does or what uses it. Is it just in the background of all of these CFWs?

    Hekate is a bootloader for the switch not a backround for cfw

    Right
    got it!

    So with the link you showed im doing it all now, and yet again that pesky "hekate" thing comes up

    How to use:

    1. Download Hekate or use the payload that comes with the package
    2. Download the latest release
    3. Start Hekate through e.g. Fusée Gelée, TegraRcmSmash or WebCFWLoader
    4. ???
    5. Profit!

    Just to confirm, this means, load up switch with the jig etc, and in the sx os (what im using for payload loading) load the file called "hekate_ctcaer_4.6_svc.bin" as the payload?

    Just curious (as with most of my questions...) is the SX payloader no good? (yes i know they are dirty steal code etc etc) but does it actually have compat issues?
