HI, I am using HEKATE 5.1.2. In this case, should HEKATE update 5.2.1 oh first?

Please teach me how to update HEKATE.
Thank you, Goodfriend.

Hola te puedo preguntar, iba a hacer todo el procedimiento y borre todo por error de la sd . lo intente todo de nuevo pero ahora no me sigue despues del logo de nintendo switch. se queda en pantalla negra. creando la particion con hekate en Sd partition. ya probe con todo tipo de archivos hasta los de sdsetup.com … ya formatee la memoria en fat32. de la unica manera que he logrado que arranque sin problemas es haciendo desde el hekate la emummc en SD FILES . pero de esta manera tengo mucho errores tengo una ipatched 4.1

Y ahora siempre al reiniciar la consola en emunand me incia hekate 5.3.0, que creo que es el que pusieron en la carpeta de descargar, es por esa nueva version de hekate (5.3.0) o por un archivo que estudes pusieron

I followed all the instructions, but I don’t manage to get beyond Hakate. If I select any of the 4 options I can choose at the “Launch” menu, the NS-Atmosphere logo is quickly shown, followed by the Hakate logo and I’m back at the Hakate Main menu.
What can I do to regain access?

I cannot boot into cfw through hekate 5.3.0 or Fusee-primary despite having updated and followed instruction. Unsure of what to do (should my Bootloader/ini folder be empty?)

Do a google search for “sdsetup” and download the cfw setup files from there if all fails.

hi, what would you recommend doing with a 4.0 switch w/ ams 12.0. should I update both sysnand and emunand? what about efuses and whats the point of downgrading anyway?
sorry for asking so much 🙂

update sysnand and emunand to 10.0.3 (not the latest 10.0.4). I have that set up and can play anything without errors. Note: I just use ams and goldleaf, don’t know about other cfw.

After upgrading to FW10.0.4 + ANS 0.12.0, installing any NSP to console memory crashes the OS, while install NSP to SD card works.
I tried to fix this by:

  1. Make a new clean emummc on another new SD card
  2. Factory reset

Both has no luck.
 
Also I am sure this is not related to goldleaf or tinfoil, since it crashes when I try to move games from SD to console memory using system setting option.
 
Any thoughts?
Thanks,

Hope you are feeling better. I was able to update atmosphere to 0.12.0 and it was working with firmware 9.0.1, but after updating to 10.0.4 with Choidujuor I keep getting error code 2162-0002 (after atmosphere attempts to launch). I am still able to get into Hekate, but my emuMMC gets this error every time now. Any suggestions?

I had the same issue and this is the solution i found online:
“Sounds like a custom theme problem. Does the error go away if you delete /atmosphere/contents/0100000000001000?”
