    Just the basic Hecate payload that everyone is using. Not the SX OS itself. Honestly, I'm more interested in having a wireless method of getting into RCM and the dongle would fix that. I don't want to use SX OS and get banned yet. At least not until the games I want are in the shop and I can download them. So is it possible to just launch into Hecate without using SX OS at all?

    Not yet, but I believe they are working on it.

    Gambia, The
    You can. In the Options menu, where you can activate the autoRCM you have the Option to inject a different payload which is read from the SD Root.

    I tested that already.

    Right. It says “launch external payload” or something like that. I am going to check out Hekate before registering my dongle.

    As of earlier today, ctcaer released a script that converts a payload to a boot.dat that can be started directly by the dongle, and the default payload it does this to is his latest ipl release.
    I think someone posted a ready-converted boot.dat of it, probably in the SX OS 1.3 unpacker thread in the backup loader section.

    I was thinking of the same, the big advantage of the dongle is to get rid of the PC/Phone!

    Ok cool. Thanks for the info guys. My dongle isn't here yet, but I just wanted to know my options. I'll wait out the SX OS until there is more info on the bans. At least I can wirelessly boot into Hecate now. Awesome!
