    @CTCaer's Hekate mod has just reached v5.0.0, a major milestone for the homebrew Nintendo Switch bootloader & multi-tool! Aside from improvements all across the board, like much, much faster boot times and backup/restore functions (depending on your settings and microSD type, eMMC operations can take as little as 9-15 minutes!), this version also brings along two long-requested features, aka full 8.1.0 and emuMMC support!

    But that's not all - another Greek goddess is ready to join the Pantheon! Nyx is here, and it's Hekate's user-friendly, touch-enabled GUI. Nyx has all your usual features and options, but it also includes some customisation options (user defined background and boot icons), a screenshot function and an emuMMC manager. Regarding that last point, thanks to it, you can now easily create both file and partition-based emuMMCs either from your console's own internal memory or a previously made backup right from Hekate! You can also migrate your already existing emuNAND made by other solutions, repair a partition-based setup and easily switch between multiple partition and file-based emuMMCs.

    If you're curious, here are some screenshots:

    There are many other features and improvements too! You can read all about them in the full changelog below:
    UPDATE: Hekate CTCaer v5.0.1 has been released which fixes a great number of bugs & issues, including emuMMC & GUI related ones. Additionally, the stock emuMMC option has been temporarily disabled as it was broken.

    Nyx is optional. While it's progressive in development, I am not sure how I feel about fat-thumbing something by accident.

    Looks well worth the wait, CTCaer has clearly put a lot into this - nice work!

    Yeah, probably. The only reason I know that GUI is optional is because when I push the hekate 5.0 payload without the SD files to load, it goes to the old fashioned +/- style.

    Cool. Tested scrolling through the list of my payloads and accidental presses happened like half the time in my testing so id prefer a non-touch

    I'm using the boot.dat for the SX Pro - when I copied the contents of the zip to root and it booted into the old GUI and version number was still 4.10.0. So I just deleted bootloader from SD root and copied it over from the .zip and it boots to 4.9.1 (???) same UI as before....amidoinitrite?


    edit:

    Answered on Discord - solution was
    "CTCaerToday at 11:43 AM
    You need to update the boot.dat or rename the hekate 5 bin to update.bin and put it in /bootloader/update.bin"

    "You will need sept and a custom secmon and warmboot binary to boot 7.0.0-8.1.0"

    meaning what? how is this set up on the SD card (since the last time I used it was under 6.2)?

    I got the same question. According to the config template it is:
    secmon=cfw/mods/exosphere.bin
    warmboot=cfw/mods/lp0fw.bin

    I can't find these files, they aren't included in Hekate or Atmosphere. I've read they should be inside Kosmos package but I can't find them there too.

    Also Hekate screwed up my SD Card partition table. On Linux with gparted it says "unknown partition table" it still works under Windows for some reason. Seems like I need to reformat everything and never touch EmuMMC option in Hekate again.

    In addition the template on Github seems to be incorrect.
    emummc_force_disable=1 does not work for me. It always boots into EmuMMC.

    Update says emummc_force_disable=1 is now force_disable=1 due to emummc being a redundancy.

    Anyone know how to set up the icons for NYX?

    I might be wrong. I see what you are talking about the hekate_ipl.ini example. The lack of emummc was referenced to the emummc.ini.

    How hard is it to use/setup emuNand? Is there a good guide somewhere?

    It should be easy with the new Hekate interface. The only think you have to do yourself is make a partition dedicated for it.

    The migrate emuMMC function allows to migrate from SX OS EmuNAND to emuMMC?

    So I already have an emuMMC partition made and it worked fine on the previous hekate version. Now it seems I can't enable emuMMC and the 'change emuMMC' doesn't let me choose the partition i want. something I'm missing?

    also, migrate emuMMC doesn't see any former partition
