No more SD card removals

Supports: Erista and Mariko units

Latest HOS supported: 12.0.3

New in this version

  • HOS 12.0.3 Support
    hekate had support for 12.0.3 on clean SYS cfw or OFW already.
    Support for emuMMC and SYS/Emu FS patches like nogc, had to be updated otherwise hekate would throw an error if used.
    v5.5.7 adds full 12.0.3 support for all of that.
    Just don't forget to drag n drop bootloader folder, because that's where the updated emuMMC code is.

  • How to use Partition Manager for Linux/Android?
    For L4T Linux you can use the official Ubuntu Bionic 3.2.0 or newer release or any other distro betas.
    For android you need to build Android P or Q which support/require the new partition scheme.

  • My Joy-Con drift when in Nyx, how to fix?
    Nyx applies an auto calibration at boot. That happens when you hear the rumble. If you press the sticks before, then a wrong calibration will get applied.
    To fix that on the fly, simply remove the Joy-Con and re insert it. This always causes a new calibration. Just make sure you don't touch the stick when you reinsert.

  • 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 replace.
    No need to delete that folder first, especially if you want your configs and payloads.
  • And inject the new hekate_ctcaer_x.x.x.bin payload at least once.
