Learned how to perform NAND backups
Learned how to block as much Nintendo telemetry as possible
Launching Atmosphere CFW¶
To launch Atmosphere:
Enter RCM on your Switch
Push the Hekate payload to your Switch
Tap ‘Launch > CFW (sysMMC)’
Hekate will now boot Atmosphere. Note that Atmosphere CFW does not look fundamentaly different to the normal Switch operating system. You can verify you are in Atmosphere by trying to load the Homebrew Menu (see below) or checking if the system version string in System Settings contains (AMS x.x.x).
It is very highly recommended that you setup emuMMC to protect your Switch from bricking, and so you can use the latest firmware version for online play and games without losing access to CFW.
