Atmosphère is a work-in-progress customized firmware for the Nintendo Switch.
Atmosphère consists of multiple components, each of which replaces/modifies a different component of the system:
- Fusée: First-stage Loader, responsible for loading and validating stage 2 (custom TrustZone) plus package2 (Kernel/FIRM sysmodules), and patching them as needed. This replaces all functionality normally in Package1loader/NX Bootloader.
- Exosphère: Customized TrustZone, to run a customized Secure Monitor
- Thermosphère: EL2 EmuNAND support, i.e. backing up and using virtualized/redirected NAND images
- Stratosphère: Custom Sysmodule(s), both Rosalina style to extend the kernel/provide new features, and of the loader reimplementation style to hook important system actions
- Troposphère: Application-level Horizon OS patches, used to implement desirable CFW features
Atmosphère is currently being developed and maintained by SciresM, TuxSH and hexkyz.

Que novedades incluye la versión 0.14.4
Several bugs were fixed involving the official jit sysmodule added in 10.0.0.
A Process handle leak was fixed when JitPlugin NRRs were registered with the ro sysmodule.
- This prevented processes using jit from being able to exit, causing a full system freeze.
The sm atmosphere extension to not unregister services when the server's connection is closed was special-case disabled for jit:u.
- This extension is normally desirable in order to allow more concurrent processes to exist (as only 0x40 sm connections may ever be concurrently open), but official jit sysmodule relies on the behavior.
- This would cause crashes on attempts to launch a program using jit services more than once per reboot.
- A Process handle leak was fixed when JitPlugin NRRs were registered with the ro sysmodule.
- General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience.
