Switch - hekate v6.0.6 & Nyx v1.5.5


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: 16.1.0

hekate v6.0.6 changes

Boot entries:

  • Allow overriding bootwait
    bootwait can now be used on boot entries to override the global one.

L4T/Arachne T210 (Erista) and T210B01 (Mariko) changes:

  • Automatically set rated DRAM frequency for T210B01 by default.
    Since Arachne is now final and stable use 1866 MHz for old ones and 2133 MHz for newer ones.
    T210 will still use 1600 by default, since these chips are rated as such.
  • Allow T210B01 RAM OC up to 3200 MHz (from 3000) and T210 RAM OC up to 2366 MHz (from 2133)
    Some ram models and binning can handle it. This needs L4T 5.1.2 release and up to work.
  • Improved 8GB table creation for T210
  • Allow ram undervolting. VDD2 min: 1050mV, VDDQ min: 550.
  • Some timings were corrected to use latency based base values instead of frequency
    Raises overall bandwidth performance and lowers latency
  • Added Memory PTSA DDA rework support for increased efficiency
    This needs L4T 5.1.2 release and up for the custom rework changes, to work.

Wiki must be re-read after 5.1.2 L4T release before using these. As always OC must be balanced, not just cranked to max.

Nyx v1.5.5 changes

  • emuMMC backup can be migrated as a file based emuMMC
  • emuMMC restore now uses /backup/{sn}/emummc/restore folder
    The parent restore folder is now avoided since it was always for eMMC restoring
  • Fixed an off-by-one issue with setting year on clock offset
  • Fixed an issue where Nyx would fail to launch on first boot without a hekate_ipl.ini
  • Improved ram channel detection on info
  • Added more cal0 info
  • Added public key info in fuses

BDK Changes

  • FUSES: All fuse register defines were added
    And T210B01 ones have B01 suffix now
  • FUELG: Register dumping moved to bdk for use by other applications
  • T210: Added many useful memio addresses and macros
  • I2C: Fixed stack buffer overflow
  • MINERVA: OC freq is now handled by Arachne

  • 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.

Release is based on https://github.com/CTCaer/hekate/tree/6e954f5cdff2e73d68ff2c9b463197c99544b387
