No more SD card removals

Latest OFW supported: 6.2.0

New in this version

  • Fixed sleep for downgraded units with efuses burnt more than required.
  • Fixed update.bin chainloading and also forced hw init on update, in case it changes again in the future.
    This is a breaking fix and requires to have v4.6 to your modchip/dongle.
    (Chainloading with old versions may or may not work. For that reason this is considered breaking.)
  • New archive bit fix
    It can now also fix the Nintendo folder. No more "corrupted" sd when upgrading sd card or restoring Nintendo folder.
  • Fixed UART debug printing. Thanks @hyln9
  • Auto HOS power is now disabled by default. Probably, most people learned what it does and can enable it from the Options menu.
  • Some small SMMU emulation for TSEC fixes for the unluckiest out there. Max wait time remains small.
  • Many many many fixes and also added some error msgs for restore and boot options.

NOTE: Everything hekate related, moved to bootloader folder.

New in this version

  • Implement millisecond timer
    This is a must and a very important feature, because we expect to use the bootloader more than 71 minutes (Backup/Restore). This has the side-effect of fixing a lot of stuff. Especially on SDMMC operations.
    If you had problems with read/write/verify on eMMC or SD, the new version is a must.
  • Fix the verification code at last!
    Another side-effect of using a 32bit ms timer (from the μs original one). Plus additional fixes to variables that could not fit in u32 storage, makes the fix complete. Thanks to all the testers that helped to tackle these dreaded bugs.
    Better redo that backup!
  • The Fusée patches for 4.X are now fixed
  • The sd files archive bit removal tool, now only applies to switch folder
