Save editor Config and Script files

To download working Editor Config and Editor Script files, visit this repository

Check out our Wiki page for more information on how to build your own Editor Config and Editor Script files.

How to install

  1. Download the latest release from the GitHub release page.
  2. Unpack the downloaded zip file, put the files on your Nintendo Switch's SD card and let the folders merge.
  3. If you're using Hekate, make sure to add debugmode=1 to your current profile. Without that flag set RAM editing won't work.
  4. Use a free open source CFW like Atmosphère to launch the hbmenu and start EdiZon from there.

How to compile

  1. Clone the EdiZon repo to your computer using git clone https://github.com/WerWolv/EdiZon --recurse-submodules.
  2. Download and install devkitA64. It comes bundled with the devkitPro toolchain.
  3. Use the pacman package manager that comes with devkitPro to download and install libNX, portlibs (switch-portlibs) and freetype2 (switch-freetype).
  4. The rest of the compilation works using the make command. Type make homebrew to build EdiZon, make sysmodule to build the companion sysmodule used for RAM editing or make all to build both.
