Before you begin:

  • You will need a 64gb SD card or bigger!
  • You will need to disable automated backing up of your save data.
    • To do this, go to ⚙️Settings 🠆 Data Management 🠆 Save Data Cloud 🠆 Settings and disable Automatically Back Up Save Data and Automatically Download Save Data.
  • Make sure you back up all of your files on your SD card to your PC and then delete them off your SD card!
    • This is very important, because your SD card needs to be empty!
  • Once you have completed setting up your device, ensure that you never format your SD card to exFAT.
    • exFAT users are more likely to experience SD card corruption than FAT32 users.
  • Make sure to read this so that you may later decide on which EmuNAND type to pick.

Step 1.

You can skip this step if you have a payload launcher.

  • On your pc run TegraRcmGUI_vx.x_Installer.msi.
  • Once installed, launch TegraRcmGUI. Once TegraRcmGUI is running, go to the Settings tab and click on Install Driver.
  • Once the driver is installed, create a folder named Hekate on your desktop and extract into it.
  • Go back to TegraRcmGUI, go to the Payload tab, press the folder icon, go to the folder named Hekate that you made, and pick the file named hekate_ctcaer_x.x.x.bin.

Step 2.
  • Extract these files into the root of your SD card:
Step 3.
  • Place the file named fusee.bin in your /bootloader/payloads/ folder.
  • Create a file named hekate_ipl.ini inside of your /bootloader/ folder and paste this within the file:
    [Atmosphere CFW]
    [Stock SysNAND]
  • Create the file exosphere.ini in the root of your SD card and paste this inside (this step is needed in order to blank your prodinfo so that you can avoid getting your switch banned):
  • Afterwards create a file named default.txt in /atmosphere/hosts/ (the hosts folder won't exist, so make sure to create it)
    and paste this in your default.txt file (this step is prevents you from connecting to Nintendo's servers):
    # Block Nintendo Servers *nintendo.* * *nintendoswitch.* * *
Step 4.
  • Place your SD card back into your switch, insert your RCM jig in the right side of your rail, hold the VOL + button and turn it on.
  • Connect your Switch to your PC, press Inject payload, and you'll launch into Hekate.
    • Make sure TegraRcmGUI is running.
    • If you have a payload launcher, then you can skip this step.
  • Select the Tools tab, then select Partition SD Card, and finally press Ok.
  • Now, pick what EmuNAND type you want to use:

    • To create a partition-based Emunand:
      • Move the emuMMC (RAW) slider until it says 29 full, then press Next Step and finally press Start.
    • To create a file-based EmuNAND:
      • Press Next Step, and then press Start.
  • Once the operation is done, press Close and then select the Home tab.
  • Select emuMMC in the main menu, then select Create emuMMC
    • For partition-based EmuNAND, select SD Partition and then select Part 1.
    • For file-based EmuNAND, select SD File.

  • Wait for your emuNAND to get created. Once its done, select Close.
  • Select Tools then select Archive Bit - AutoRCM and pick Enable AutoRCM.
  • Turn your device off by pressing Power off.
  • Place your SD card back into your PC and move back any previously deleted files into your SD card.
  • Now, place your SD card back into your switch, and press the power button.
  • Connect your Switch to your PC, and you'll launch into Hekate.
    • Make sure TegraRcmGUI is running.
    • If you have a payload launcher, then you can skip this step.
  • Once you're in hekate, click on launch, and select Atmosphere CFW to launch into Atmosphere.
    • If you ever need to go into SysNAND without your CFW, select Launch and then select Stock SysNAND.
