Click to expand FAQ notes
  • Which Linux/Android distributions are supported in Partition Manager?
    For L4T Linux you can use the official Ubuntu Bionic 3.4.0 and newer or any other supported distro.
    For android you can get Android 10/11 (legacy) or 13/14 (dynamic) or newer.

  • 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.

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.
