sys-patch is a sysmodule that patches fs, ldr, es and nifm on boot. This has the same effect as sigpatches.

The benefit of sys-patch is that it only needs updating when something major breaks, the last time this happened was fw 15.0.0.

Another benefit is patching ldr will (likely) never need to be updated. In the past, if a silent atmosphere update happened, this would break sigpatches (unless you updated them again).

sys-patch also outputs a log where you can see which patches are applied, which one failed and some other useful data. You can manually read the log or use the overlay, which you can also use to change the config.

Sigpatch-updater was updated to support updating and auto running sys-patch. This means that you can update and apply patches without having to reboot, which is pretty cool.

For now, I wouldn't recommend completely replacing sigpatches with this, I'd more so use it as a companion / fallback should you forget to update patches, sys-patch should continue to work.

For any issues, please open them on GitHub :)

can someone explain what it exactly can do? on a new switch?
You need something like this to run "backup" nsps on your Switch. Before, you'd have to download signature patches, which typically change with each major firmware/atmosphere update. Now you can just run this system extension in the background, and it should be one less thing you have to worry about when updating.
