Hekate CTCaer 5.5.5 / Nyx 1.0.2

Le firmware officiel 12.0.0 a chamboulé un peu la scène Switch, qui a du s’adapter pour en assurer le support. Après Atmosphère (qui n’a demandé que 5 petits jours à SciresM malgré sa vaccination COVID qui l’a mis à plat quelques jours…respect total), CTCaer propose dans la foulée la nouvelle mouture de Hekate, également compatible 12.0.0 bien sûr, que ce soit en sysMMC ou emuMMC. L’USB3 est également de la partie (pour peu d’être au minimum en firmware 9.0.0).

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.

Don’t forget to 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
