    I have everything working perfectly with and without these so just wondering what they do ...
    I am running Atmosphere 0.17.1 without exosphere, Hekate CTCaer mod v5.5.2, fusee-secondary.bin with emuNAND.

    The following patches are not found in ITotalJustice release:
    0f3850b7ce489f6a8faee9ad301013f66c74e7c8f8d1b7038ab7fe8ba9d5ac24.ips
    4D9C6D6993BF5BF058843BE072C9819598865C79BF87674C63B6D248FA7A0BA4.ips

    I also have these alternate patches, which are smaller than in ITotalJustice release:
    29CA1C792CF3AB6357929DF0627170FF8EA1CC057DBE2E5C58ADD8A442BD0CA8.ips (26 bytes)
    57F03DC120EE515C58482959AB4F76F2B5E56467A377D9576A8BDBE22E3CA2EA.ips (24 bytes)
    987521753F9B8CE98718E3C70FFEA1FDDFF58511A482F5387DE25FAD822C27C0.ips (26 bytes)

    Anyone know especially the first two extra patches, what they would be for ?

    Also, is there an advantage to running emuNAND if I'm entirely offline anyways?
    I'm assuming firmware updates can be installed using daybreak ?

    29CA1C792CF3AB6357929DF0627170FF8EA1CC057DBE2E5C58ADD8A442BD0CA8.ips (26 bytes)

    The 3 that have different sizes, not sure where I found them, they're not in ITotalJustice or eXhumer repos.

    The 2 extra ones, are both in loader_patches as well, but the 0F38 is also contained in eXhumer repo:
    github: eXhumer/patches/releases

    I don't know where I got the 4D9C one, but when I search I see them mentioned here:
    gbatemp: /threads/sigpatches-for-atmosphere-fusee-primary-only.567542/page-17

    Sorry can't post URL's yet as I'm new :)

    loader_patches are not needed anyways for fss0 I think?
    So when I boot hekate -> fss0 -> atmosphere I shouldn't even need them ...


    EDIT... I found the source of the smaller patches as well as the EXTRA ones :

    gbatemp: /threads/sigpatches-for-atmosphere-hekate-fss0-fusee-secondary-only.571543/
    I wonder if the smaller sized ones are better / worse ...

    They are not better. These two packages are for different payloads. Depends on your used payload. If you use the hekate payload, you need these patches which you have linked. For fusee-primary.bin you need other patches iirc. Correct me if i'm wrong.

    no the smaller patches are not better i remember back then several ppl were making them and there were
    same patches in 3 different sizes but all do the same and if you Only use FSS0 - fusee-secondary you
    Dont need loader and fs ips patches on es ips patches since loader and fs patches are both read by hekate
    from Patches.ini files

    Makes sense, I removed fs_patches and loader_patches completely and everything seems to work :)

    I have a weird issue booting Hekate, fss0 to atmosphere, where after the Nintendo logo the screen goes black
    and stays black, until I hold the power button. Then I will boot again in the same way and it boots fine ...
    After it's working, I'll hold the power button then Power Off, and the next boot Hekate, fss0 to atmosphere
    will make it hang after Nintendo logo, but repeat the process and it boots just fine ...

    It's really weird!

    I'd reformat sd card to fat32, then reinstall/ update files, worth a try anyways, or try on another sd card to see if makes a diff

    I might have to try that, is there any advantages to running emuNAND
    if I'm not even connecting the switch to the internet at all ? Just wondering :)

    I believe the most appealing is you can run lower/ diff firmware than the stock OFW, and in case something goes wrong, you have a Nand backup that then can be reinstall to emunand, and it won't effect the stock OFW SysNand, but I may be wrong, and others here may have a better answer too....so anyone? I'm curious now too on all the advantages I may have missed....btw, I don't use EmuNAND, but I also have been in "Airplane Mode" for like 2 years now -CFW 11 AMS 17 Fusee Primary Erista

    If you're in Airplane mode, how did you upgrade to new firmware, with ChoiDujourNX ?
    I would imagine then on reboot you blew fuses, however I guess that doesn't matter as long as everything works :)

    But if you already have a NAND backup and run on sysNAND, I suppose every time you upgrade firmware
    you'd have to create a new NAND backup but other than that I don't suppose there would be any downsides?

    I wonder if there's any other advantages to emuNAND ...

    Yep on all those guesses, but I use Daybreak (comes w Atmos) not ChoiDujour, and I don't care bout fuse burnt count cause I have no need to go back to earlier Firmwares. But bewarned if using SX OS, which I'm not, don't go past 11.0 OFW yet.
    Also from what I read you must use EmuNand to go online and hope to prevent a ban, But if you don't go online at all, it does not matter, you still are at risk being banned, but hardly if you stay offline anyways. But again I could be wrong, and I Stay offline anyways -"Airplane Mode" -"No wifi linked at all on switch" so I simply use Sysnand, I could be banned already, but I don't know or care really.
    Now if I ever wanted to take it back online, or try to, I would have to "clean" my switch files out completely, then reinstall my orig Boot0/Boot1 RawNand.bin files that I have backuped day 1, before I even ran CFW on it, back to it. (I wonder if Nintendy bans for being on "Airplane Mode" for 2+ years, lol, nuh prob not)

    Yeah I did a similar thing, however when I backed up my NAND even RAR'd it came to basically 30 gigs,
    meaning my NAND was full of junk, and that was even after resetting the switch ... So after using atmos
    for a while I restored my NAND but not before I edited the NAND backup and cleared the USER partition,
    and then did another factory reset and backed it up again, now it's about 2.5 gigs RAR'd ...

    I bet there's a better way of making a clean NAND backup but this was the best I could do :)

    Hopefully someone else here can help you more cause I don't know much about the Nand stuff as far as where you should go from here, Good luck with and hope I helped a lil atleast.

    Exactly, however the rawnand.bin will be 29 gigs before you compress with RAR, unless you don't get a valid backup ...
    Now mine would not compress at all, so I had to mount and edit it, and clear out the USER partition on the backup,
    then I re-flashed it back to the switch, and then did a factory reset, which at this point I should be fine as after
    restoring I didn't run CFW on it, and after that I finally did my 2nd backup that would compress ...

    It doesn't make since to me cause my original RawNand.bin file is only 1 kb in size, boot 0/boot1 are only 4500 kb in size

    Hopefully someone else can chime in here and help

    Your right, I was looking at an old Nand backup that failed, it is about 30gb

    Glad you found the 30GB one, that's the one that matters :)

    But if you were to compress it with RAR you might find it would be much smaller,
    but mine would not compress and I found out the switch never erases stuff from NAND
    and just changes the partition table to say the files are not there, but after a backup since
    it's raw there's encrypted old data there instead of 00's, so erasing USER partition on the
    raw nand backup itself fixes that :)

    Haha, yeah, that alone would seem suspicious to them, but they can't ban on suspicion :)

    I suppose you don't have to make an EmuNAND, as long as you backup your saved games,
    afterwards you can try restoring and checking to make sure it's not banned and then go back,
    to either EmuNAND or SysNAND again ...

    Yea that's true. Not sure if I even wanna mess with tho, don't play online at all on switch, have xbox for that, switch is my on-the-go gaming, that's it really, but maybe someday I'll get bored n try. Have orig boots n rawnand.bin (which I'm making a copy to a second hd in pc now so wont lose) so I can try someday maybe. Good talking to you tho, hope you work your switch out.

    Mine is mostly on or sleeping so I rarely have to payload it to hekate, only when loading new games on SD,
    however it's just a weird issue that it seems every 2nd boot fails after the nintendo logo, sort of annoying :)
