hakchi2 CE v1.2.5


This is v1.2.5 of hakchi2 CE. This is a maintenance release to fix bugs and regressions. As always, if you encounter any bugs, please feel free to open an issue on Github and we'll try to address it as we can.

DISCLAIMER


hakchi2 CE by @TeamShinkansen and hakchi scripts from @madmonkey1907 have always been experimental software: while we strive to offer a risk-free experience, unpredictable things can happen, so
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Minimal HOW-TO upgrade from v1.1.0


You can upgrade to this release from previous versions and things should continue going well, and hopefully better. If your base kernel or scripts are out-of-date and needs to be upgraded, the system should advise you to do so. You can follow prompts and if everything goes well, you'll be good to go in no time.

  • If you prefer to do things manually, you can use Kernel > Install/Repair. This will put you up to speed.

  • If you're experiencing issues and would like to start fresh, you can then try Kernel > Reset. This will effectively erase all customizations and files and settings and put hakchi back to how it's supposed to be after a fresh install. It is functionally equivalent to running uninstall and install back to back, without useless flashing.

  • If you want to benefit from the new automatic backup feature of hakchi, you should first do Kernel > Uninstall, and then give the app your existing kernel backup from previous versions of hakchi2 when it asks you to do so, then once everything is back to stock, run the first menu item Kernel > Install/Repair. This should create an internal backup on the NES/SNES mini, and you should not be prompted for a kernel dump anymore.

Those are all the choices you should ever need from the Kernel menu. Of course, there are still other capabilities tucked away in Kernel > Advanced, which are, by definition, for advanced users!
