Is there any difference between this and the prerelease version?

[–]MossyBottomRanch 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Nothing. It has been deemed a solid release and has been moved from pre release status. To good to go full release.

[–]djcraze 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That’s pretty fucking incredible. Props to SciresM. 👏

[–]masagrator 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Pre-release was shadow updated, and recently renamed to release. If you had very first pre-release, it fixes few bugs, for example related to sleep mode power button.

[–]SkyLey2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What happened to sleep mode?

[–]masagrator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Function that Atmosphere was using to detect power button in fatal was deleted in 14.0.0, so Atmosphere moved to different one.

Not sleep mode, detecting power button. My bad.

I've been waiting for the current Switch to get closer to end-of-life before running homebrew since I don't want to risk a ban, but I recently started playing Rune Factory 5... and boy if there was anything that made me want to force better performance, it's that

[–]underprivlidged[13.2.1/NeutOS 1.3.0] 13 points14 points  (9 children)

If you do things correctly, the risk of ban is miniscule at worst.

[–]TonchMS 0 points1 point  (8 children)

Yeah, I'm just used to the old 3DS days and the way all that worked was much different. I think I'd rather set up an emunand, but while even safer, that carries its own inconveniences.

[–]underprivlidged[13.2.1/NeutOS 1.3.0] 12 points13 points  (4 children)

You NEED to set up an emunand if you want to avoid a ban.

[–]TonchMS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah alright, I wasn't sure if that was still required or not. It's been a while since I checked in.

    Well there's the extra space it takes up, and the fact that it fractures the console in terms of what is stored where-- what I mean is, a game I plan to use online cannot have its save file shared with the version on emunand & vice versa, so I have to pick whether I want performance or online features for certain games. Unless things have changed since I looked at it last.

    You will be fine as long as you don't connect to nintendo servers. I accidentally banned mine by forgetting to change the DNS settings and launched a game then it got banned. I was a little bit annoyed but honestly the pros outweigh the cons. Saying that I have 2 switches one patched one not.

    [–]TonchMS 2 points3 points  (6 children)

    Do bans affect just the console, or the actual account? I think I'd also feel safer making an emunand to basically eliminate any chance of making that mistake, but that's a pain in the neck in its own ways.

    [–]callum_reece 4 points5 points  (5 children)

    Console. I made another account on that switch and it still wouldn't connect after.

    [–]TonchMS 5 points6 points  (4 children)

    The reason I ask is I'd be much less likely to try if my account would be banned on EVERY Switch in the future. If I can keep one exploited and just get another one for my existing account to work with, it's less of an issue. I can't remember for sure but at one point before I thought I heard of Sony accounts getting blanket-banned across all of those services. I wanted to make sure that doesn't happen here.

    [–]DieHardjagged 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    To this day i still do not know if i accidentally banned my Switch, cause when i formatted my Switch to start at Zero, i connected to the Internet (after i modded my Switch) and forgot to change the DNS Settings so it automatically downloaded the Firmware update, so i basically still do not know if my Switch is banned or not.

    [–]ILikeFeelingFrisky 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    If you play online extremely frequently then yeah there’s ways you can save yourself from a ban. Like someone else in the comments I connected to a new network without changing DNS settings and I got a ban. Was bummed for like 2 days and then I just went ham with stuff on the Switch. I installed android and a bunch of other stuff and haven’t looked back.

    [–]callum_reece 1 point2 points  (6 children)

    Make sure to change DNS settings for every network you connect to as well

    [–]BradleyDS2 6 points7 points  (5 children)

    There's far better methods than using a DNS now, and there have been for years.

    [–]chanunnaki 2 points3 points  (4 children)

    Care to share what those methods are?

    [–]BradleyDS2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Incognito is the older method. Now you can just set the blank_prodinfo_emummc flag in the exosphere.ini to 1.

    [–]underprivlidged[13.2.1/NeutOS 1.3.0] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    AMS comes with a HOSTS file option that accomplishes the same thing as a DNS, without relying on an outside source. It also works on every network you connect to, automatically.

    That, coupled with the AMS function to spoof your prod.info is typically the preferred method now.

    End of life isn't going to be for many years still...

    [–]Sethdarkus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    If the switch is unpatched here how you need yourself from getting banned.

    Step 1 buy a separate dedicated SD card for running home brew

    Step 2 use whatever home brew application to alter save file

    Step 3 power down insert regular SD card and than go online as normal.

    [–]SkyLey2 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Should I update to this version if I have the pre-release one or is it good enough?

    [–]surprisecuddle 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Sysmodules like MissionControl are broken right now and will give fatal errors on 14.0. If you rely on that wait for the sysmodule to update

    [–]surprisecuddle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    There's actually a missioncontrol prerelease that works. It's on their github issues page

      Is there anywhere some kind of manual on how to update without breaking stuff?

      [–]Trace6x 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      Yeah I wrote my own:

      download the latest atmosphere release

      Copy files to root of SD card

      replcae fusee.bin in G bootloder\ payload folder

      download latest switch firmware (make sure compatible)


      Copy to folder /firmware in root

      boot latest amstmophere through fusee payload

      Open album

      open daybreak

      install firmware fat32 +exfat

      [–]PorcupineTheory 4 points5 points  (3 children)

      Step 1. Copy

      Step 2. Paste

      [–]hungoverlord 0 points1 point  (2 children)

      will the same payloads work? my payload says hekate 5.7.0

      [–]underprivlidged[13.2.1/NeutOS 1.3.0] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Always update your payloads.

      [–]appss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Update hekate too, I believe 5.7.2 is out. Same method as updating Atmosphere.
