Recommended Posts


Supports booting ALL current CFWs, Android/Linux booting and payload tools.
No more SD card removals

Supports: Erista (T210) and Mariko (T210B01) units

Latest HOS supported: 16.0.3

hekate v6.0.5 changes

  • L4T: Add BPMP-FW support for T210 (power management).
  • L4T: Add fine tuned DRAM voltage selection via ram_oc_vdd2 and ram_oc_vddq.
    More info will be in the L4T 5.1.1 config readme.

Nyx changes

  • Lite Gamepad Calibration dumping
    The Joycon BT pairing dump button can now be used to dump calibration data for Lite Gamepad. (Used in L4T 5.1.1, not yet released.)
  • Now eMMC errors will always be reported in eMMC info, even if eMMC init fails.
  • Updated DRAM info about 2 of the 3 newer ram chips (not yet validated).

BDK Changes

  • MINERVA: Fixed an issue where the wrong number of tables could be used.
  • MINERVA: Normalize selected frequency. This allows user to not be precise on ram freq for l4t.
  • MINERVA: Add support for 1966MHz (1958.4) and 2033MHz (2035.2).
  • DRAM: Add support for custom dram id 7 for T210 (7 is easy to burn on top of any T210 ids). This is for 8GB ram chips.
  • DRAM: Name 2 of the 3 new ram chips (Not yet validated, but an educated guess, since all previous ones were correct in the end.)
  • DRAM: Corrected SKU info about mid cycle Hynix RAM chips.
  • PMIC: Reduced max allowed dram voltage for new L4T dram support to be inside official limits.
  • TIMER: A new isleep function was added that allows instruction timed based sleep.
  • SDMMC: Fixed an issue where the wrong error reason was reported for the calibration pad for SD/eMMC.


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.
