What Argon is?

Argon is a noble gas. "Argon" comes from Greek "Argon", neuter of "argos" meaning lazy , idle or inactive. Argon recieved this name because of its chemical inactivity.

Argon NX is an immutable payload which is injected to your Nintendo Switch via Fusee Gelee exploit.

Purpose

The purpose of Argon NX is to stay immutable, so you can always inject it, without caring about other payloads getting updated (Always use ArgonNX for TegraSmash, TegraGUI, TrinkedM0...).

How can it be immutable?

When Argon NX is injected, it automatically launches the payload.bin loacted at argon directory on your SD Card root.

If payload.bin is not present or VOLUME DOWN button is pressed on payload injection, Argon NX will list all payloads located at argon/payloads, and you will be able to select one of them to launch it.

Features

  • Autolaunch/autochainload the payload named payload.bin inside argon directory in your sd card root.
  • If argon/payload.bin is not found or VOLUME_DOWN_BUTTON is held during ArgonNX injection, ArgonNX will list all the payloads located at argon/payloads, so you can select one of them to launch it.
  • Customize payloads' logos. Logos must be smaller or equal than 200x200. Example:
argon
  β”œβ”€β”€β”€logos
  β”‚     default.bmp       # Default logo (logo for all payloads)
  β”‚     fusee-primary.bmp # Logo for fusee-primary.bin payload
  β”‚
  └───payloads
        fusee-primary.bin
        ReiNX.bin         # Will be rendered using default logo
  • Custom backgrounds can be added by placing background.bmp file inside argon directory. The background must be smaller or equal than 720x1280.
  • Custom titles can be added by placing title.bmp file inside argon directory. There is not a specific size for title.
  • Take screenshots to share your ArgonNX gui.
  • FULL touch support. Thanks to @pixel-stuck

Improve performance

ArgonNX can use minerva dram training to improve performance. The use of minerva is optional but recommended. To use minerva just place the compiled minerva.bso inside argon/sys. The directory argon/sys with minerva, is included in sd-files.zip in the release section.

Compatibility

This payload will launch any CFW or payload.

Roadmap

  1. Kind of config file
  2. Change to prettier font
