Que novedades incluye la versión 5.1.3



  • New in this version
    • Fixed an issue with booting CFW on < 7.0.0
    • A missing check was causing old versions to boot complete stock.
    • Fix issues with the usual sd card suspects when doing a warmboot based reboot.
    • The SD Card regulator is now disabled on HW init and re-enabled at the appropriate time.
    • Support for Atmosphère experimental content.
    • Use the fss0experimental=1 key on a boot entry to enable it. For now it's only for NCM.
    • Support fatal context version AFE2
    • Add more Minerva checks, in case it is paired with old bootloader folder contents.
    • Support coreboot.rom chainloading that is not 1MB.
  • emuMMC
    • Fixed an issue with HOS 1.0.0. Based on m4xw/emuMMC@d12dd54
  • Nyx v0.8.6
    • Fixed all touchscreen issues. In Nyx and HOS.
    • In case you have the issue, you can boot Nyx while pressing VOL- and VOL+.
    • This will force a re-calibration of the touchscreen. (The tool version will come later.)
    • Fixed an issue with lvGL heap which was causing hangs
    • Fix Archive bit tool when filepath is bigger than 256 chars.
    • Allow canceling of emuMMC creation.
  • Notes
    • Lastly, keep an eye for the big Nyx update!
    • NOTE: You will need sept and a custom secmon and warmboot binary to boot > 7.0.0 or stock emuMMC.
    • NOTE2: hekate is now able to get sept binaries from inside a fss0.
    • 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.


  • Full support for 9.1.0
  • Faster and better DRAM training
  • This performance change affects both hekate and Nyx.
  • libsys_minerva.bso was updated and the update is mandatory.
  • If you notice slow performance in hekate or Nyx, you forgot to drag n drop the bootloader folder from release.
  • Even faster HOS boot
  • Because of the aforementioned change, HOS now boots even faster.
  • Enabled Low Battery Shutdown when voltage is less than 2.8V
  • This will help with many users that kill their battery by forgetting their devices into RCM/AutoRCM.
  • Fixed an issue with some users hanging in black screen or logo for Nyx loading
  • This is unrelated with HOS boot issues.
  • Fixed a critical issue with heap collapsing on edge cases. Thanks @shchmue.
  • Additionally, heap management became more robust and fragments way less often.
  • Added support for entering fastboot on Android.
  • This requires of pressing VOL+ first and while holding it, also start holding VOL-.
  • External patches only look for patches.ini now
  • The reason is that patches_template.ini is now useless and no one should install homebrew when title replacement exists.
  • Also because apparently it confuses users into thinking that it takes precedence over patches.ini, even though it explained countless of times that it's only loaded if patches.ini is not found.
  • Lastly there's a confusion where users thought that empty patches is not the same with no patches, even though it's exactly the same. So now any empty patch will throw an error.
  • To sum up, removed to simplify the process because of user errors.
  • Fixed an issue with force shutdown timeout, where it would power off if PWR button was pressed for 2s. It's now back to 6s.
  • Fixed instant boot to menu ("bootloop") on errors. Now hekate will properly wait for user input in order to go back to menu.
  • Fixed an issue with tsec keys, where KFUSE didn't have enough time to initialize.
  • Fixed an issue where double defined patches (like NOGC), would fail the process. Now any reapplied patch, will be properly marked as applied.
  • Countless refactors and bugfixes in hw init and drivers
  • Many general bugfixes

Nyx 0.8.3 Changelog:

  • 9.1.0 support for info and tools
  • GFX rendering and generally many functions in Nyx are now faster
  • Refactored SHA calculation for faster verification
  • Verification is now able to calculate the 1st buffer SHA while the 2nd buffer is read.
  • Fan is now activated if temperatures are high
  • Battery Voltage value is now Orange if lower than 3200mV
  • Countless refactors and bugfixes in hw init and drivers
  • Many general bugfixes

Hekate CTCaer Mod 5.0.2 Changelog:

  • Full support for 9.0.0
  • Fixed SaltyNX for emuMMC 8.x.x
  • There was an issue with fs mitm patches where it caused hangs for SaltyNX and various plugins like ReverseNX.
  • Add support for forced AutoBoot via id key - Android reboot
  • You can now add id=max7char to your boot entries and hekate can be instructed to autoboot via only this.
  • This will be helpfull especially with many Linux distros and Android (id=SWRANDR).
  • AutoNOGC protection for fatal errors in emuMMC
  • NOGC will now be applied automatically when fuses are >= 9.0.0 and emuMMC is less than that.
  • And like always, the classic AutoNOGC was updated for lower fuses than 9.0.0.
  • Streamline power cycles for Sandisk U1 SDR104
  • No more hangs because of this.
  • Fix CPU/GPU on warmboot reboot from Linux/Android
  • Allow critical info to be shown when a fatal error occurs while AutoBooting HOS
  • Now, before booting Nyx right away, it will show the error message and wait for a button press briefly.

  • 9.0.0 support for info and tools
