Question Why did you switch from Reinx to Atmosphere?

    7.01 FW - Reinx has been great, but decided to switch over to atmosphere a few days ago just to see what Atmosphere is about. The conversion is pretty straight forward and painless by simply loading Kosmos, Atmosphere release, and sweet patches in that order.

    Two reasons for my switch over
    1. I cannot play Hellblade Senua until after the switch
    2. I am dying to test Edizon ram search. Been using Nswitchdebugger with Reinx

    I have not encounter issues with games not working or corrupted SD (using exFat) so far.

    What are your reasons for the switch?

    Atmosphere is the original cfw for the switch. The updates are fast when a new firmware comes out. More features imo.

    It is recommended to use fat32 with 32k cluster. exFAT can corrupt the files within a read or write process afaik. I never had any problems with exfat. But nintendos drivers are crap.

    Never used ReiNX. Atmosphére is more feature-rich, not to mention it's the fastest at supporting newer firmware versions.

    Yes, you can play Hellblade Senua on ReiNX now. They have already been fixed it. That's why I have two CFWs.. Two are better than one. :P

    Because it simply doesn't provide me with anything Atmosphere doesn't do just as well (or better), updates are slower, and at this point there's not much of value in it aside of arbitrary connection to anime fandom.

    I used to use reinx... I loved it, until 7.0 came out.
    reinx updates are very slow imo.
    I also switched to atmos and I'm very happy with it.
