    Make sure you're shorting pins 9 and 10 ONLY. Had the same problem and it was due to shorting pins 8, 9 and 10. it's trial and error if you're doing the foil route.

    Hey is there some measures I can take avoid having CFW crash every 5 minutes? I cant do any sort of experimentation because it feels like no matter what i'm doing it just crashes. Trying to open an app? Crash. Undocking? Crash. Are there specific behaviors I have to avoid, or is there something I could be doing wrong with injecting the payload or something? Any help is appreciated.

    Read the start of the post: Hekate is proof of concept, it is not ready for general usage yet, you will need to wait for Atmosphere for the "complete experience"

    Yes I am aware. I still am interested in experimenting with the potential that switch homebrew has, which is why I was curious if there were at least some measures to take. But if i'm better off waiting for a user friendly experience then I suppose it's no problem.

    Anyone else taking forever to backup? It went by relatively okay speed up until 49% and then it takes about 10 minutes to go up 1 percent.
    Using a SanDisk 64gb class 10

    Edit: For some reason one of the folders filled the memory card up. I reformat the microSD card and it worked. golden star for me

    That's the general idea, yes. If you don't want unfinished stuff without crashing all the time, you are definitely better off waiting. The stuff that is out right now is only for people who want to see something, ANYTHING run on their Switch. The user-friendly release is being developed in the form of Atmosphere and will release when it is done.

    Yeah, some APX driver related files are missiing in TegraRcmGUI v1.3. I'll fix it after work. In the meantime, your can use Zadig to install APX device driver.

    Edit : fixed !

    Okay so I have a 128gb MicroSD card I've had in my Switch since release day, I've put it in my PC and it says 108GB free out of 119GB, I have some screenshots and games saved to it, but it's formatted by the Switch so I can't make any folders on it, do I have to wipe it and format it to FAT32? Will it be unusable for games if I do this for homebrew etc?

    This might have already been answered for you, but just hold volume up with the jig inserted when you're connecting to your PC.
