Launching Atmosphere CFW¶
Atmosphere is currently the CFW with the largest feature set. It enables game modding, homebrew, backup installs, and more. To launch Atmosphere:
- Enter RCM on your Switch
- Push the Hekate payload to your Switch
Hekate will now autoboot Atmosphere. Note that Atmosphere CFW does not look fundamentaly different to the normal Switch operating system. You can verify you are in Atmosphere by trying to load the Homebrew Menu (see below) or checking if the system version string in System Settings contains (AMS x.x.x).
