Latest HOS supported: 10.1.1

New in this version

  • Fix pkg2 re-encryption for 8.1.0/9.0.X
    This fixes issues with panics to RCM or blue screens when new exosphere is used (0.13.0 and up).
  • Add panic dumping (pstore) for L4T Linux/Android
    This is disabled for now because it causes dumps if the register has garbage inside.
  • And many more fixes.

Nyx v0.9.3

  • Fix dumping of Package1
    Before it would split into NX bootloader, Security Monitor and Warmboot wrongly.

  • Disable touch screen if hw failure
    Fixes an issue with Joycon not registering with a broken touch panel.

Additional changes:

  • Add decrypted CAL0 dumping
  • More accurate info about display panels
  • Add info of Protected area of SD Card
  • Add better info about write protection of SD cards
  • Skip first 4 packets for joycon calibration


  • How to use Partition Manager for Linux/Android?
    For now the official releases of these projects are old and do not support the new layout.
    You can still make it work if you build Android or if you extract the ext4 partition from the Linux disk image.

  • My Joy-Con drift when in Nyx, how to fix?
    Nyx applies an auto calibration at boot. That happens when you hear the rumble. If you press the sticks before, then a wrong calibration will get applied.
    To fix that on the fly, simply remove the Joy-Con and re insert it. This always causes a new calibration. Just make sure you don't touch the stick when you reinsert.

  • I don't care about emuMMC/Linux/Android. Can the Part manager be used for something else?
    Yes. You can still reformat your SD card to a single FAT32 partition.
    You can even use it when you have exFAT and you want to format to FAT32.
    It is also suggested to format your sd card via hekate. That's because it prepares it for performance. something that many partitioning tools neglect.


Check for more.

For maximum performance of UMS in Windows, you need to run nyx_usb_max_rate__run_only_once_per_windows_pc.reg, only once per PC you have.
It only affects hekate's usb device. You can also view that file with text editor and see what it does. Linux/Mac OS users do not need that.

Don't forget to drag n drop bootloader folder into sd card root and hit replace. No need to delete that folder first, especially if you want your configs and payloads.

hekate main payload is compiled with: f021665
