hekate v6.0.2 changes

  • HOS 16.0.0 Support
  • Fixed an issue which could, in some cases, cause Stock-mode to hang on boot on HOS 1.0.0 to 6.1.0.
  • Fixed an issue on TUI mode where user could not access options without a hekate_ipl.ini
    In case hekate started with removed or broken SD and was plugged later
  • L4T Loader: updated T210B01 SC7-Exit firmware to account for new burnt fuses count
  • Various other improvements.

emuMMC Changes

Nyx v1.5.2 Changes

  • HOS 16.0.0 Support
  • Improve SD error handling on init. Added retries in case of failure.
    If it still fails to load them, now user will properly get a fatal error message.
  • Added support for bpmpclock=3 which further reduces clock speed for the worst binned SoCs
    Additionally, the first boot clock test now lasts fro 10s on first boot, instead of 5s.
    To change bpmpclock, you need to manually edit nyx.ini, since it's not in the GUI options.
  • Reboot to OFW button now gets disabled if AutoRCM is enabled
  • Fixed an issue on PKG1/2 dump tool which would produce incorrect binaries on PKG1 dumping.
  • Various improvements/fixes

BDK Changes

  • SDMMC: Improve init error handling
  • GPIO: Added gpio_direction_input and gpio_direction_output functions that can fully configure a pin easier.
  • 5V Regulator: Removed X3 pin for T210B01. VBUS regulator should not be managed there.
  • HW Deinit: Do not touch APE clocks on T210B01
  • HW Deinit: Remove support for broken HW init
  • CLOCK: Improve PLLC deinit
  • BM92T36: Added sanity checks for comms. Fixes hanging in case of broken i2c to that chip.
  • SDRAM: Removed support for (LP)DDR2/3. Only LPDDR4(X) is used anyway.


Click to expand FAQ notes
  • Which Linux/Android distributions are supported in Partition Manager?
    For L4T Linux you can use the official Ubuntu Bionic 3.4.0 and newer or any other distro betas.
    For android you can get Android 10.

  • I don't care about emuMMC/Linux/Android. Can the Part manager be used for something else?
    Yes. You can still reformat your SD card to a single FAT32 partition.
    You can even use it when you have exFAT and you want to format to FAT32.
    It is also suggested to format your sd card via hekate. That's because it prepares it for performance. something that many partitioning tools neglect.


Check readme.md for more.

For maximum performance of UMS in Windows, you need to run nyx_usb_max_rate__run_only_once_per_windows_pc.reg, only once per PC you have.
It only affects hekate's usb device. You can also view that file with text editor and see what it does. Linux/Mac OS users do not need that.

How to update:

  • Drag n drop bootloader folder into sd card root and hit merge/replace.
    No need to delete that folder first, especially if you want your configs and payloads.
  • You can choose to update your RCM injection device or PC with the new hekate_ctcaer_x.x.x.bin or not.
    In any case, bootloader/update.bin, will be checked and if newer it will get loaded.
    update.bin is hekate and it is already copied with the bootloader folder drag n drop update process.

Notice about Atmosphere 1.0.0 and up: The fss0=atmosphere/fusee-secondary.bin in hekate_ipl.ini must be changed to fss0=atmosphere/package3. And make sure that atmosphere/contents folder does not have old Atmosphere components.
Notice about resized emuMMC: Resized emuMMC does not have the slow bug anymore. You can create a new one or recreate it via Nyx and the issue will be gone.
