Hekate CTCaer Mod 5.3.0/Nyx 0.9.2

Alors que la scène Switch semble endormie en ce moment, Hekate fait peau neuve avec une nouvelle mise à jour. Celle-ci s’améliore en supportant totalement Exosphère 2, tout en maintenant la compatibilité avec la précédente version. Elle se veut par ailleurs plus stable et rapide, avec notamment la correction de bugs au niveau du chargement des kip (qui pouvait survenir dans certains cas bien particuliers) et l’amélioration du temps de démarrage de 500ms (toujours ça de pris). Le Bootloader Development Kit (BDK pour les intimes) fait également son apparition, avec une réorganisation de la structure interne du code source de Hekate, permettant ainsi des modifications/adaptations simplifiées pour les développeurs en herbe.

Bootloader Development Kit (BDK)

This release also introduces the BDK. The whole structure of hekate changed so it’s easy to do code changes to drivers and utils.
This allows the transformation of hekate to anything and makes porting to other Tegra X1/X1+ easier.
For now it’s used for hekate, Nyx and modules. As this is just the start, it will improve more later down the road.

The v5.2.0 Anniversary release had a huge changelog. If you missed it, check here: https://github.com/CTCaer/hekate/releases/tag/v5.2.0
