Hello all!

I have used SXOS Pro this whole time but I want to have Atmosphere too for its sysmodules like sys-clk since SXOS doesn't support sysmodules currently. I use the SXOS Pro Dongle to get to my EMUNAND.

Switch information:
Micro SD card formatted to exFAT. My SYSNAND is on 6.1.0 and my EMUNAND is on 8.1.0. Switch is on Auto-RCM.

The Problem:
I downloaded Atmosphere 0.9.3 from their GitHub and placed the files into my root along with fusee-primary.bin. I use the SXOS Pro Dongle to then inject the fusee-primary payload but I get a black screen.

I then downloaded Hekate 5.0.1 and put it into my root and then moved my fusee-primary into the payloads folder inside the bootloader folder. I then used the SXOS Pro Dongle to then inject the hekate_ctcaer_5.0.1.bin. I then went into Payloads and then launched fusee-primary.bin. Atsmosphere screen pops up for a few seconds but then goes to the same black screen.

I have not tried TetraRCM because I don't have a USB-C cable to connect my switch to my PC or my Samsung phone.
I have looked online for solutions like trying another CFW like ReiNX. Going from SXOS Pro Dongle to ReiNX results in black screen and going from SXOS Pro Dongle to Hekate to ReiNX shows the ReiNX splash screen and then shortly afterwards, the black screen.

I would appreciate it if someone can help me.

Oh, I had no idea that was a thing. Tried searching my micro sd card and I only have emummc.kipm inside my bootloader\sys. Where do I create the emummc.ini?
Create > emummc folder on the root of the SD

Create > emummc.ini file inside of emummc folder

Copy and paste this to emummc.ini

[emummc]
enabled = 1
sector = 0x2
nintendo_path = Emutendo

Hmm unfortunately, I still encounter the same black screen with both ReiNX and Atmosphere. emummc is like EMUNAND right? Is it noteworthy to know that I created my EMUNAND from the menu in the SXOS Pro Dongle?

that emummc sector corresponds to where sxos makes the emunand. Not sure why you are getting black screen, must be something else im missing

Hmm, well I created the EMUNAND as a file on my micro sd card and not as a hidden partition. Could that have been it?

Hmm, so I created the EMUNAND hidden partition using SXOS. I added in the emummc.ini from above and I double checked in Hekate and it says under the emuMMC option:

Enabled!
Type: SD Raw Partition
Sector: 0x00000002
Nintendo folder: Emutendo

Still getting black screens booting up ReiNX and Atmosphere but SXOS is fine. Below are some pictures of my file structure after installing Atmosphere and ReiNX again.

Is this all because I'm booting from SXOS Pro Dongle -> Hekate -> ReiNX/Atmosphere?
Is the boot.dat from SXOS Pro set up in such a way that I can only have 1 CFW or the other on one sd card?

Yeah, I downloaded their latest release and their file name is "atmosphere-0.9.3-master-25218795+hbl-2.2+hbmenu-3.1.0.zip"

Yeah looks like SXOS blocked booting directly into fusee-primary, so going into hekate to boot atmos shouldve worked. Reinx also shouldve worked but it doesnt support emunand.

Try booting up with this boot.dat and let me know if it works with the SX Dongle. Its the Atmos payload converted to boot.dat
OH IT WORKED! I did the button combination to boot up using my SX Dongle and the screen showed Atmosphere, and then ReiNX. Got past the black screen and I was able to get to the home screen. Seems that I'm on 6.1.0 ReiNX(0.0) even though my EMUNAND was updated to 8.1.0.

Couple of questions now: Is there a different button combination now to access SXOS now or is it just going to boot straight to ReiNX now? Also, I can't tell if I'm on SYSNAND or EMUNAND.

there is no emunand for reinx, so you are in cfw on your sysnand. So if you plan to stay clean on sysnand, get out :)


that boot.dat shouldve booted atmosphere, not reinx though. This boot.dat just allows the booting of atmosphere, so cant go back to sxos using it. Perhaps that SX Reboot to Payload will let you though


get rid of the reinx stuff on your sd card, and just keep atmosphere files, and it should boot into atmosphere emunand

when u copied reinx, you prob overwrote some of the atmos files, so just stick with atmos stuff for now
