No more SD card removals

Latest HOS supported: 13.0.0

Changes in this version

  • Fixed an issue that was causing hangs in hekate when parsing emummc.ini that has paths bigger than 128 characters
  • Added Panic error reporting
    These are normally shown on a device without AutoRCM as colored panic screens. Now hekate can also show them in text form, plus their error code.
  • Changed description of boot2 fatal error to better reflect possible causes

Notice about Atmosphere 1.0.0 and up: The fss0=atmosphere/fusee-secondary.bin in hekate_ipl.ini must be changed to fss0=atmosphere/package3. And make sure that atmosphere/contents folder does not have old Atmosphere components.
Notice about resized emuMMC: Resized emuMMC does not have the slow bug anymore. You can create a new one or recreate it via Nyx and the issue will be gone.

Nyx v1.0.8 Changes

  • Fixed an issue with emuMMC disable, where it would dump garbage to nintendo_path key while saving emummc.ini.
  • Changed the name of reboot options for patched devices when removing sd card
    It was properly doing normal reboot instead of reboot to rcm, but the button name was wrong

BDK Changes

  • String printing file functions in FatFS now check for NULL strings
  • HW reset reason is now saved for later use

FAQ

  • How to use Partition Manager for Linux/Android?
    For L4T Linux you can use the official Ubuntu Bionic 3.2.0 or newer release or any other distro betas.
    For android you need to build Android P or Q which support/require the new partition scheme.

  • 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.

Notes

Check readme.md for more.

NOTE:
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.

How to update:

  • Drag n drop bootloader folder into sd card root and hit merge/replace.
    No need to delete that folder first, especially if you want your configs and payloads.
  • You can choose to update your RCM injection device or PC with the new hekate_ctcaer_x.x.x.bin or not.
    In any case, bootloader/update.bin, will be checked and if newer it will get loaded.
    update.bin is hekate and it is already copied with the bootloader folder drag n drop update process.

Notice about Atmosphere 1.0.0 and up: The fss0=atmosphere/fusee-secondary.bin in hekate_ipl.ini must be changed to fss0=atmosphere/package3. And make sure that atmosphere/contents folder does not have old Atmosphere components.
