  • Added support for C11 threads, which are preemptively multitasked and load balanced across cores.
  • Added Event object, which wraps kernel revent/wevent handles with optional autoclear.
  • Changed CondVar interface to have the mutex be passed to condvarWait* instead of condvarInit, which is consistent with both the concept of a condition variable and with other common threading APIs.
  • Added armGetSystemTick (which supersedes svcGetSystemTick), and armGetSystemTickFreq.
  • Added rwlockInit.
  • Added kernelAbove600.
  • Added system calls: svcGetThreadCoreMask, svcSetThreadCoreMask.
  • Added MOD0 header to binaries compiled with libnx.
  • Fixed semaphoreTryWait.
  • Fixed a memory leak in tmemCreate.


  • Added bpc service (used for rebooting and shutting down the console).
  • Added psm service (needed to get the battery status).
  • Added ns commands: nsListApplicationRecord, nsListApplicationContentMetaStatus.
  • Minor enhancements to applet service:
    • Added missing AppletType_SystemApplet initialization in applet code.
    • Added appletBeginBlockingHomeButton and appletEndBlockingHomeButton.
  • The Event object is now used to return system events from service wrappers when possible, also providing the correct autoclear mode.
  • Corrected fsOpenFileSystem and fsOpenFileSystemWithId.
  • Corrected a bug in hidInitializeVibrationDevices.
  • Corrected a bug in socket error conversion.
  • Fixed nifm not initializing properly for < 3.0.0.
  • Service manager (sm) session now closes properly.
  • hid, irs, vi and nv services now acquire a reference to applet services.


  • Added audren:u service wrapper (presently requiring 3.0.0+, will be addressed in a future update).
  • Added AudioDriver wrapper around audren, providing a higher level interface that can be used to mix and play sounds.


  • Major rewrite and refactoring work in the gfx wrapper which brings reliability and usability improvements:
    • Removed GfxMode_TiledSingle mode due to it causing problems and potential (temporary) hardware damage.
    • The default transform behavior no longer vertically flips the framebuffer.
    • Removed gfxSetDrawFlip since it's no longer needed thanks to the change in the default transform behavior.
    • It is not necessary to call gfxWaitForVsync in most situations because gfxSwapBuffers already implicitly synchronizes with the display (this is mandated by the Android surface compositor and buffer producer system).
    • Dequeue fatal errors should be solved.
    • Simplified and streamlined logic.
    • nvgfx stripped down to the minimum that is actually necessary to allocate framebuffers.
    • Binder logic now more closely matches both Android code and official software.
    • Proper fence and event wait code is now used.
  • Console code no longer performs a forced flush/swap/vblank wait when printing a newline due to performance reasons. Users of the console device must make sure that gfxFlushBuffers and gfxSwapBuffers are periodically called, preferably in the main loop of the application.
  • Added experimental wrapper objects for the Nvidia driver, needed in order to use the GPU. These wrappers are still in RE phase and will be subject to change in a future release.
  • Major redesign of the VI service wrapper that allows future users to use VI directly to create a display layer.
  • Binder services & buffer producer wrappers were enhanced and redesigned.
    • Binder now holds less state and always uses the VI binder relay service session.
    • Added Module_LibnxBinder error codes.
    • IGraphicBufferProducer binder service wrappers now have the bq prefix and explicitly accept a Binder object.
    • Added bqCancelBuffer.
    • bqGraphicBufferInit was renamed to bqSetPreallocatedBuffer.
  • Enhancements and additions to nvidia ioctl wrappers.
  • Added definitions for some more Android enumerations.


  • The ALIGN macro was removed in favor of the C11/C++11 alignas attribute.
  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments to enhance the user experience.
