Hekate 5.9.0 + Nyx 1.4.0

Notre manager de boot et couteau-suisse préféré se refait une petite beauté pour l’arrivée d’Atmosphère 1.4.0. Comme pour le Custom Firmware, il s’agit ici d’ajouter la compatibilité avec le firmware 15.0.0 fraîchement sorti. Nyx profite par ailleurs d’un petit coup de boost au niveau du rendu graphique sur Mariko, puisque l’accélération matérielle est désormais utilisée. Il n’y aura donc plus d’effet de latence ou lourdeur dans le rafraîchissement de l’affichage, et c’est une excellente nouvelle.

Latest HOS supported: 15.0.0

hekate 5.9.0 changes

  • HOS 15.0.0 full support
  • Fixed a regression on HOS 6.2.0 causing TSEC to hang hekate
  • A new animated ticker line is now shown during bootlogo’s delay time
    It gives a nice visible feedback and a reminder to user to press VOL- if needed.
    It can be disabled by editing hekate_ipl.ini and setting noticker=1 in [config] section. (GUI option may come later.)
    That only disables the ticker for custom bootlogos, not the default hekate one.
  • For new Mariko users, Auto HOS Power Off feature is now enabled by default
    Existing users, can enable it, as always, in Nyx -> Options -> Auto HOS Power Off.
  • Added an error message in case payload launching fails
    Previously it wouldn’t show anything.
  • Support for new dram chips
  • Many under the hood improvements

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.

emuMMC Changes

Nyx v1.4.0 Changes

  • Fluid GUI for Mariko
    Nyx now uses HW rotation which extremely improves render times on Mariko
    The slow and waterfall-like rendering is now gone.
  • Black Theme support
    Added experimental Black Theme aimed mostly for OLED panels.
    Can be enabled in Nyx Settings -> Color Theme -> Toggle Background.
    You need to select Save & Reload after that to really use it.
    For now it’s experimental as it needs some tweaks here and there.
  • Added info about Switch Lite Sharp LQ055T1SW10 panel
  • Fixed an issue that would create a massive stutter each time a tap was done on a window
    Noticeable on Mariko devices since it would create a 1s stutter. (On Erista it’s not visible.)
  • Nyx Options was renamed to Nyx Settings to avoid confusion with hekate/general Options
  • A warning icon together with reason is now shown if fuel gauge is in init state
  • The partition manager, now also does a backup of payload.bin in case a full backup is not possible
    Now the total of backed up items in such a case is: hekate/Nyx files (bootloader), Mariko Warmboot Storage (warmboot_mariko) and payload.bin.
  • Fixed an issue with XUSB which would break USB on Mariko in L4T after UMS usage
  • Fixed an issue where if user pressed the invisible padding buttons on a pop up, it would close it.
  • Fixed a heap corruption issue when entering emuMMC window which could hang Nyx
  • Improved various error messages
  • Many under the hood improvements
