    In this Tutorial ill show you how to step by step use Pre-Existing cheats format with Atmosphere CFW.

    Requirments:
    1.Hacked Switch Unit With Latest Atmosphere 0.8.5 installed ( i segest Kosmos pack ) "as it has all up to date software included"

    2
    .Edizon latest nightly build installed ( http://bsnx.lavatech.top/edizon/ ).

    Hint: to use cheats from old title update just rename the buid_id of the cheats.txt to the new build_id and done :) (some cheats might work , and some might not)

    3
    .Cheats file for our game.

    Get Cheats here: https://github.com/WerWolv/EdiZon_CheatsConfigsAndScripts/tree/master/Cheats

    #Cheat Files Directory Format:
    atmosphere/titles/<title_id>/cheats/<build_id>.txt

    Instructions:
    1.on your SD card open "atmosphere" folder using ftp/nxmtp or SD card adapter, to copy files.

    2
    .from your previously downloaded cheats for your game copy the "titles" directory to "atmosphere" directory on your SD card.

    #Only if you dont have "tiltles" Directory with your cheats#
    "you most likely have it as "cheats/<title_id>/cheats/<build_id>.txt"
    than you should open the "atmosphere/tiltles" path on step 1
    than from your previously downloaded cheats for your game copy the "<title_id>" directory to "atmosphere/tiltles" directory on your SD card.

    3
    .Boot your game and press "Home" button after game has booted, and open Hombrew Launcher.

    4
    .find Edizon App and open it (press Y key to activate Cheats menu).

    5
    .in popup window you should see your Previously uploaded cheats to your SD card, Activate wanted cheats by pressing the A key.

    6
    .Get back into your Game and the cheats should be active.

    Hope this is useful.
    enjoy :P

    Does anyone know how to find build id with atmosphere? On sxos, it will appear in sxos menu. However on atmosphere, Edizon only shows title ID.

    game's build ID formatted as ascii hexadecimals.

    I see. I finally found a game where it shows me the codes (Zelda botw). I guess the build_id is wrong. Any idea how can I find my game version’s build_id?

    Can we do memory scan with this cheat feature ?
    Say, if there is no cheat code available, can I try to scan the game memory (like Cheat Engine on PC) and edit the value ?

    i havent looked into this that close yet . but as long as i will have the exact answer ill add this to the tutorial , for now use cheats you can find outhere on the inet xD

    but as i see it you take 1st 8 bytes of the title update header ??? and convert them to ascii hexadecimals and youll get your build_id , chek it out and report back , honsetly not sure yet . maybe someone else got the answer
