This version supports booting ALL current CFWs, Android/Linux booting and payload tools.
No more SD card removals

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

FAQ

  • 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.

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.

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.

The v5.2.0 Anniversary release had a huge changelog. If you missed it, check here: https://github.com/CTCaer/hekate/releases/tag/v5.2.0

FAQ for Anniversary release

  • Does new hekate disallow exFAT?
    Of course not...
    What changed was that hekate can now identify the HOS drivers and check if they support exFAT.
    And if they don't, it will tell you.
    HOS comes with 2 different fs drivers. One that supports FAT32 only and one that supports both.
    If you have the FAT32 only and an exFAT sd, you will boot into a black screen. hekate prevents that.

  • How to get the FastFS file based emuMMC?
    You need to have an existing file based emuMMC or create a new one.
    Currently it only works when booting via hekate (with the new emummc.kipm).

  • 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.

  • Does emummcforce key always forces me to use emuMMC?
    Well, ONLY if you put that key in your boot entry. And one boot entry, does not affect another.

  • 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.

Latest HOS supported: 10.0.2

New in this version

  • Updated, improved and faster SDMMC driver
    Faster and proper than before
    Full error checking
    Reinits to lower bus speed if failure
    Supports 1-bit mode (you will get a warning in Nyx if that's the case)

  • Updated Display Interface driver
    Initializes based on display panel
    Checks if already initialized and deinits first
    Adds Window D and Cursor Window support

  • Add boot time emuMMC selection
    Using the emupath key in a boot entry will load the selected emuMMC.
    This can also be forced by using the correct boot cfg storage bit and writing the path at the emummc path offset. Check readme for these.
    The format is: emupath=emuMMC/RAW1, emupath=emuMMC/SD00, etc.
    (ONLY works with ones created by hekate, as it depends on the raw_based/file_based files that have emuMMC info).

  • Check for HOS FS driver supporting SD card format
    It disallows booting if SD card is exFAT and HOS uses the FAT32-only driver.
    Without that you would boot into a black screen before.

  • Add emummcforce key
    Forces emuMMC and disallows booting if emummc.ini is not found or emuMMC is disabled

  • Add exosphere.ini parsing and CAL0 blanking support
    Users are discouraged to enable that Atmosphere feature, as it is not yet validated as safe because of caching
    exosphere.ini prodinfo keys are parsed during boot and applied automatically.
    Users can choose to override them with cal0blank and cal0writesys hekate ini boot entry keys.
    The value of these (0 or 1) will be applied on top exosphere.ini value and will effectively override it.

  • Disallow Auto NOGC in stock
    Users can still force it with kip1patch=nogc

Additional changes:

  • Add EKS support
  • Improve KIP1 patching
  • Add Interrupts handler driver
  • New upgraded gpio driver with full configuration support
  • Exception handling that allows your to always continue
  • Fix Minerva emc table corruption
  • Countless other fixes and additions!! Check commit log if you want to learn more.

emuMMC

  • File based now uses FastFS with speeds almost as fast as RAW
  • Updated, improved and faster SDMMC driver
  • Retries on lower bus speeds if failure and works even in 1-bit mode

Based on https://github.com/m4xw/emuMMC/tree/54b9d24365e1943832a2f50b3324ca11cb0c4999

Nyx v0.9.0

  • USB Driver and Tools
    Check below for added features
    (Keep in mind that if anything goes wrong or you get stuck during a USB op, you can press both VOL buttons to bail out.)

  • USB Mass Storage
    It supports SD Card, eMMC and currently selected emuMMC
    eMMC and emuMMC are read-only by default

  • USB Gamepad emulation (Joy-Con)
    This new usb feature will allow you to use Joy-Con as a free gamepad on a PC.
    Can be paired with tools like x360ce to enable support to all games.

  • SD Card Partition Manager
    Allows you to select up to 2 emuMMC + Linux + Android.
    Any combo is allowed, even if you just want to repartition it back to one FAT partition.
    The procedure is automatic on selecting sizes and offsets.
    The tool is also able to backup your SD Card into Ramdisk and then get restored, if the total used size is less than 1GB. If you have more files than that, you will be asked to copy your files to your PC via UMS.
    It also allows you to flash L4T Linux images and Android Twrp images.
    The Flash Android can be also used to reboot into Twrp if a file to flash is not found.

  • Joy-Con Support
    It acts as a virtual mouse fallback for users with broken touch screens
    Cursor Movement: Left Stick, Click: A / ZL / ZR, Close/Back: B, Log screen: - or +, Screenshot: Capture

  • Home Screen Selection support
    You can now choose in Nyx Options between 4 modes:
    -Main menu: Default main menu
    -All Configs: Merges Launch and More Configs as long as there are enough empty slots
    -Launch: Uses Launch screen as home screen
    -More configs: Uses More configs screen as home screen
    All of them support customized background bmp

  • Fix Archive Bits v3
    The new version automatically fixes everything, without the need of 2 options
    It's extremely fast, because now only changes what needs to be changed. Even if user has thousands of folders
    Supports huge mods or texture packs that are split on FAT32.
    (As long as the folder name has a 3 char extension. Exanmple: zelda_hd_textures.hts)

  • Add Color Theme support for highlighted text
    You can choose in Nyx Options

  • Fuses Info is now HW & Fuses info
    Adds Display panel, Touch panel, DRAM Chips and SoC Chip info

  • Add SD / eMMC RAW read benchmark
    Find it in SD Card or eMMC info

  • Allow eMMC restoring for smaller or bigger backups
    Useful for >32GB eMMC mods. You will get a warn about it.
    If you don't fit the eMMc modding description, then your backup is corrupt.

  • Add simple emuMMC backup
    It supports all sized partition based emuMMC
    For now it can only backup the first 0xE0 partition that it finds

  • Additional emuMMC changes
    -Allow partition selection when creating a raw partition based emuMMC
    -Clear partition start when creating RAW Partition based emuMMC
    -Refresh emuMMC status window when creating a new emuMMC to reflect the new info

  • Touch panel tuning calibration
    Allows you to fix any issue with touch in Nyx and HOS.
    It will also check your panel for HW issues before proceeding.
    If an issue is found, the calibration will stop to avoid a bug in the touch firmware.

  • Add Window D as Log screen window
    Can be shown by pressing - or + on Joy-Con
    Screenshot function will also save that screen to SD

Additional changes:

  • Add Joy-Con Bluetooth pairing info dump. Used in L4T Android/Linux.
  • Add Update Reboot 2 Payload option
    It automatically updates reboot_payload.bin if fss0 is used.
  • Disallow eMMC operations when battery is low to protect from sudden shut off
  • Add SD error report info in SD Card info
  • Add Ramdisk support
  • Add primitive eMMC BIS support
  • Add Time offset config. This is manually done for now. In a later version, the offset will be parsed from HOS.
  • Fix hanging when parsing non HOS GPT in eMMC info
  • Fix a long standing heap corruption issue that would hang Nyx
  • eMMC Backup/Restore Verification config is now moved to Nyx config (nyx.ini)
  • Fix Battery Charger and Fuel Gauge infos showing wrong values for some stats
  • Allow screenshots only every 2s and add capture effect
  • Decrease Idle power drain
  • Countless other fixes and additions!! Check commit log if you want to learn more.

Notes

Check readme.md for more.

NOTE:
For maximum performance of UMS in Windows, you need to run nyx_usb_max_rate (run once per windows pc).reg once per PC you have. It only affects hekate's UMS usb device. You can also view that file with text editor and see what it does. Linux/Mac OS users do not need that.
NOTE2: You will need sept and a custom secmon and warmboot binary to boot > 7.0.0 or stock emuMMC.
NOTE3: hekate is able to get sept binaries from inside a fss0.

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.

Latest HOS supported: 9.1.0

New in this version

  • Added Atmosphère's system memory pool increase kernel patches
    Now sysmodules have way more available ram
  • Added updater for update.bin and reboot_payload.bin binaries
    update.bin is updated if old.
    reboot_payload.bin is updated if old and if updater2p=1 key is configured (for now only manually via hekate_ipl.ini), it forces an update even if the current payload is not hekate.
  • Added hekate libraries error printing in order to inform user to also update bootloader folder
  • Fixed hekate main compatibility with old Minerva to avoid hangs on black screen when injecting
    Some users forgot to drag n drop bootloader folder and replace files, which caused that issue.
  • Fixed an issue where users with bootwait=0 could not enter the menu

Nyx v0.8.4

  • Fixed an issue with about screen

v5.1.0 changes were a lot and important, please check by clicking below:

Click to expand v5.1.0 changelog

New in this version

  • Full support for 9.1.0
  • Faster and better DRAM training
    This performance change affects both hekate and Nyx.
    libsys_minerva.bso was updated and the update is mandatory.
    If you notice slow performance in hekate or Nyx, you forgot to drag n drop the bootloader folder from release.
  • Even faster HOS boot
    Because of the aforementioned change, HOS now boots even faster.
  • Enabled Low Battery Shutdown when voltage is less than 2.8V
    This will help with many users that kill their battery by forgetting their devices into RCM/AutoRCM.
  • Fixed an issue with some users hanging in black screen or logo for Nyx loading
    This is unrelated with HOS boot issues.
  • Fixed a critical issue with heap collapsing on edge cases. Thanks @shchmue.
    Additionally, heap management became more robust and fragments way less often.
  • Added support for entering fastboot on Android.
    This requires of pressing VOL+ first and while holding it, also start holding VOL-.
  • External patches only look for patches.ini now
    The reason is that patches_template.ini is now useless and no one should install homebrew when title replacement exists.
    Also because apparently it confuses users into thinking that it takes precedence over patches.ini, even though it explained countless of times that it's only loaded if patches.ini is not found.
    Lastly there's a confusion where users thought that empty patches is not the same with no patches, even though it's exactly the same. So now any empty patch will throw an error.
    To sum up, removed to simplify the process because of user errors.
  • Fixed an issue with force shutdown timeout, where it would power off if PWR button was pressed for 2s. It's now back to 6s.
  • Fixed instant boot to menu ("bootloop") on errors. Now hekate will properly wait for user input in order to go back to menu.
  • Fixed an issue with tsec keys, where KFUSE didn't have enough time to initialize.
  • Fixed an issue where double defined patches (like NOGC), would fail the process. Now any reapplied patch, will be properly marked as applied.
  • Countless refactors and bugfixes in hw init and drivers
  • Many general bugfixes

New in emuMMC

  • 9.1.0 support

The binary is based on m4xw/emuMMC@bd81a67

Nyx v0.8.3

  • 9.1.0 support for info and tools
  • GFX rendering and generally many functions in Nyx are now faster
  • Refactored SHA calculation for faster verification
    Verification is now able to calculate the 1st buffer SHA while the 2nd buffer is read.
  • Fan is now activated if temperatures are high
  • Battery Voltage value is now Orange if lower than 3200mV
  • Countless refactors and bugfixes in hw init and drivers
  • Many general bugfixes

Notes

Check readme.md for more.

Lastly, keep an eye for the big Nyx update!

NOTE: You will need sept and a custom secmon and warmboot binary to boot 7.0.0-9.0.1 or stock emuMMC.
Warning Sept: HOS 9.1.0 needs a new Sept. Get the folder from atmosphere release. If not updated, hekate will show pkg2 decryption error. On the other hand, hekate can still load older Sept versions for 9.0.X.
Warning hekate files: New bootloader contents are mandatory. Because they are new, you must not mix them with older hekate versions. hekate package is made for an easy drag n drop that can be used to replace the files.

@CTCaer CTCaer released this Dec 8, 2019

hekate-nyx-banner

This version supports booting ALL current OS/CS CFW, Linux chainloading and payload tools.
No more SD card removals

Latest HOS supported: 9.1.0

New in this version

  • Full support for 9.1.0
  • Faster and better DRAM training
    This performance change affects both hekate and Nyx.
    libsys_minerva.bso was updated and the update is mandatory.
    If you notice slow performance in hekate or Nyx, you forgot to drag n drop the bootloader folder from release.
  • Even faster HOS boot
    Because of the aforementioned change, HOS now boots even faster.
  • Enabled Low Battery Shutdown when voltage is less than 2.8V
    This will help with many users that kill their battery by forgetting their devices into RCM/AutoRCM.
  • Fixed an issue with some users hanging in black screen or logo for Nyx loading
    This is unrelated with HOS boot issues.
  • Fixed a critical issue with heap collapsing on edge cases. Thanks @shchmue.
    Additionally, heap management became more robust and fragments way less often.
  • Added support for entering fastboot on Android.
    This requires of pressing VOL+ first and while holding it, also start holding VOL-.
  • External patches only look for patches.ini now
    The reason is that patches_template.ini is now useless and no one should install homebrew when title replacement exists.
    Also because apparently it confuses users into thinking that it takes precedence over patches.ini, even though it explained countless of times that it's only loaded if patches.ini is not found.
    Lastly there's a confusion where users thought that empty patches is not the same with no patches, even though it's exactly the same. So now any empty patch will throw an error.
    To sum up, removed to simplify the process because of user errors.
  • Fixed an issue with force shutdown timeout, where it would power off if PWR button was pressed for 2s. It's now back to 6s.
  • Fixed instant boot to menu ("bootloop") on errors. Now hekate will properly wait for user input in order to go back to menu.
  • Fixed an issue with tsec keys, where KFUSE didn't have enough time to initialize.
  • Fixed an issue where double defined patches (like NOGC), would fail the process. Now any reapplied patch, will be properly marked as applied.
  • Countless refactors and bugfixes in hw init and drivers
  • Many general bugfixes

New in emuMMC

  • 9.1.0 support

The binary is based on m4xw/emuMMC@bd81a67

Nyx v0.8.3

  • 9.1.0 support for info and tools
  • GFX rendering and generally many functions in Nyx are now faster
  • Refactored SHA calculation for faster verification
    Verification is now able to calculate the 1st buffer SHA while the 2nd buffer is read.
  • Fan is now activated if temperatures are high
  • Battery Voltage value is now Orange if lower than 3200mV
  • Countless refactors and bugfixes in hw init and drivers
  • Many general bugfixes

Check readme.md for more.

Lastly, keep an eye for the big Nyx update!

NOTE: You will need sept and a custom secmon and warmboot binary to boot 7.0.0-9.0.1 or stock emuMMC.
Warning: HOS 9.1.0 needs a new sept. If not updated, hekate will show pkg2 decryption error. On the other hand, hekate can still load older sept versions for 9.0.X.
Warning2: New bootloader contents are mandatory. Because they are new, you must not mix them with older hekate versions. hekate package is made for an easy drag n drop that can be used to replace the files.

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.
