Update Atmosphere cfw from within your switch!



Download the the latest release from here.

Move the downloaded .nro onto you nintendo switch sd card inside the folder /switch/atmosphere-updater.

That's it!


The app currently has 5 main options.

Full Atmosphere Update:

  • Downloads the latest Atmosphere release and installs everything from that release.

Update Atmosphere, not overwriting .ini files:

  • Downloads the latest Atmosphere release and installs everything from that release ignoring .ini files.
  • This option will still install any missing .ini files, ensuring that the update will function correctly.

Update Hekate:

  • Installs the latest release of Hekate.
  • Option to install latest Atmosphere as well, when selecting update Hekate.
  • If option to update Hekate + Atmosphere is selected, the new fusee-primary.bin is copied to /bootloader/payloads/fusee-primary.bin.
  • Replaces /atmosphere/reboot_payload.bin with the new Hekate payload.
  • Copies new Hekate payload to /bootloader/update.bin.

Update App:

  • Downloads the latest version of this app straight from github!
  • Deletes the previous old version.

Reboot (reboot to payload):

  • Reboots the switch, loading the payload from /atmosphere/reboot_payload.bin.
  • This is recommended after install Atmosphere.
  • Updating Atmosphere / Hekate automatically includes the needed reboot_payload.bin.
